The coast-to-coast coffeehouse tour has come to an end: Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift have split up. And considering he was reportedly the one who ended it, we are guessing that she is furiously scribbling a list of words that rhyme with “Gyllenhaal” right now.
“Jake reached out to her and started all of this, but now he’s not acting as interested,” a source told Us magazine of the two-month romance, said to have ended before the holidays. They were last sighted together Dec. 9.
“He said he wasn’t feeling it anymore and was uncomfortable with all the attention they got,” the source said. “He also said he could feel the age difference. Taylor is really upset. We told her not to move so fast with this, but she didn’t listen.” (No kidding. But hello, have you heard her music?)
A source close to the “Love and Other Drugs” star said, “Jake cares about her, but [the publicity] was a lot for him. He wants to keep his private life private, and that’s hard to do dating Taylor.”
Oh, well, it was fun to speculate how long it would last. In related news, coffee futures just dipped sharply.
It is not just the “Gossip Girl” generation who find themselves becoming entangled in scandal — Hollywood’s baby boomers are pretty good at generating drama too. Case in point: On the heels of news that John Mellencamp split up with his wife of 18 years comes word that he has quietly been seeing Meg Ryan.
A source close to the actress told People magazine that the pair have been dating for almost two months — and, though they just announced their separation, John and supermodel-spouse Elaine May had already been estranged before his new romance blossomed.
The “When Harry Met Sally” star and the rocker have been spotted together on Martha’s Vineyard and in New York City. A gawker who saw them grocery shopping in NYC said, “I thought that was her husband because they seemed comfortable and familiar with each other, just like an old married couple.”
Well, let us hope Elaine found out this news from John and not People magazine.
LeAnn Rimes is sporting a new engagement ring — and she has been showing off some other new, ahem, accessories. According to a report in Us magazine — which bikini photos of the singer vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, would seem to corroborate — she had implants.
“She recently got a boob job,” a so-called insider told the tabloid. “She’s always, always been insecure about her size. She was a small A cup. She often talked about wanting to get implants. She’d say, ‘I just want a little bit so they’re proportionate to my body.’”
Allegedly, the country star went to the same plastic surgeon that fiance Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, used — and even requested the same cup size. Creepy!
“When Brandi and LeAnn were constantly fighting, one of LeAnn’s jabs at Brandi was that she was plastic,” the source said. “Brandi replied, ‘Be careful, honey. That’s what Eddie likes. You’ll be there someday too.’ Looks like Brandi was right!”
OK, we are now officially convinced that Us magazine’s Leann-and-Eddie “insider” is in fact Brandi Glanville.
