Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are not living separate lives and headed for a split, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the supposed marital drama. We’re told the spouses are going strong.
According to OK!, the couple’s relationship has taken a backseat to their busy careers. A so-called “source” tells the magazine it’s “a struggle for them to find quality time together” because they’re always busy working. “The past few years, Ryan’s been working out of town while Blake stays home with the kids,” adds the questionable insider. “The distance between them has taken its toll.”
However, the magazine’s account of events is inaccurate on several levels. For starters, Lively revealed in an interview with People last October that she and her husband “don’t work at the same time.” The actress further noted that they “all go together as a family” whenever one of them is on location shooting a project. “We stay together,” she added.
Additionally, Reynolds and Lively appeared to be a very happy couple while posing on the red carpet of the New York premiere of Final Portrait last week. Following the screening, E! published an article detailing how Reynolds and Lively “keep their marriage stronger than ever.”
Meanwhile, the spouses often give each other funny and affectionate shoutouts on social media. This past Valentine’s Day, Reynolds posted a photo of a cake he baked for his wife, and joked in the caption, “The icing is glue.” Despite all of the evidence proving the two aren’t having marriage problems, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the situation, who declined to comment on the record but assures us the tabloid’s story is false.
Unfortunately, we’re not surprised that OK! is trying to break up the couple. Gossip Cop recently busted the magazine for falsely claiming Reynolds and Lively were having a “marriage crisis” over Jude Law, her co-star in the upcoming film The Rhythm Section. Prior to that nonsense, the unreliable tabloid alleged that Reynolds was getting cozy with Deadpool 2 co-star Brianna Hildebrand. The publication clearly has very little insight into the couple’s happy marriage, and this latest phony article is yet another example.
UPDATE: Proving Gossip Cop right, Ryan Reynolds mocked this untrue rumor via Twitter on Saturday.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
