A tabloid claims Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have "hit a rough patch" in their relationship and might be headed for a split. There's no truth the story. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can correct it.
An article in this week's In Touch says the couple's eight-year relationship is in trouble as "all is not well in the romance department." A questionable source is quoted as saying, "The spark they once had seems to be dying down, and they've grown apart." The magazine doesn't bother to elaborate on what the couple's supposed issues entail, but maintains they're dealing with them "in different ways."
"Ryan's not one to get too bogged down by talking about his feelings while Eva is the opposite - that's the big problem," adds the alleged tipster. "Relationships are hard, and they're realizing they're going to have to put in the work if they want to save theirs." But Gossip Cop checked with a source close to the situation, who tells us none of this is true, and there's evidence to back that up.
In April, Mendes spoke glowingly about Gosling in an interview with Women's Health, telling a story about how much it meant to her when the actor dedicated his Golden Globe for La La Land to her brother, who had recently passed away. "It was the most beautiful gesture," the actress said. Mendes also talked about how much Gosling has changed her life, specifically in regards to wanting to become a mother. The actress noted that after she fell in love with the actor, "then made sense for me to have...not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him."
Unfortunately, it's common for the tabloids to wrongly predict the demise of Mendes and Gosling's relationship. The couple is notoriously quiet about their romance and rarely attend red carpet events together. That leaves a vacuum for the gossip media to fill with falsehoods. In May, In Touch's sister publication, OK!, falsely claimed Mendes was dumping Gosling and taking their two kids. That didn't happen.
Shortly before that, Gossip Cop called out Star for wrongly reporting that Gosling and Mendes had split following months of nonstop fighting. They're still very much together. Back in 2017, we debunked a bogus report about Gosling and Mendes being at a "breaking point" in their relationship. It's more than two years later and nothing has broken. This latest article about the couple is more nonsense.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
