The old saying goes: it was fun while it lasted! After five months together, Gossip Girl vixen Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio have parted ways–confirmed by reps for both stars exclusively to Us Weekly, adding the pair “remain friends.” First spotted getting cozy while aboard Steven Spielberg’s yacht in Monte Carlo back in May during the Cannes Film Festival, the couple embarked on a whirlwind, summer romance that spanned the globe. During their time together, the actress, 24, and Inception star, 36, took their kanoodling everywhere from Venice, Italy to L.A. to NYC. In late August, Blake even flew thousands of miles to Sydney, Australia — for a quick weekend — where her now ex-beau was filming The Great Gatsby.
The pair’s recent split is sure to come as a surprise to some of Leo’s pals, one of whom told Us they’d “never seen him like this with a girl.” Back in June, the couple holed up in Leo’s L.A. home, where Blake apparently “spent the whole time baking. Pals added that Leo’s “never dated a girl who can cook and he’s smitten!” The duo also bonded with one another’s parents. Another insider echoed the sentiments: “I bet they get engaged in six months.” As for Blake, she’s said over and over that she never lets public opinion affect her relationships. “I have a strong sense of myself. That gives me a sense of security…Every relationship you have, you’re learning and growing and taking something from that,” she recently told Glamour magazine. “So for me, it’s never been too dramatic of a thing when something ends.” Here Blake’s coveted sense of style shines through in these gorgeous D&G shades, available in yellow and black frame hues with silver accents. –rpuccia
