Leo and 'Gossip Girl' split up

07 October 2011, 10:35

Both Leo and Blake’s reps confirmed that it is over between the pair – after only five months of dating.

Blake and Leo first hooked up in May 2011 at the Cannes Film Festival , weeks after he and model Bar Refaeli finally ended their on-off relationship of five years. At the time, 24-year-old Gossip Girl Blake had been single for seven months after ending her three-year relationship with co-star Penn Badgley in 2010.

Since then the couple seemed to be growing closer – Blake even travelled for a weekend away to celebrate her birthday in Australia where Leo is filming The Great Gatsby.

The first rumors of a break-up surfaced after reports that Leo's mother couldn't stand the actress and her "snooty ways." But that was soon glossed over and  the pair met each other’s parents.

A close friend of Leo’s told US weekly that the split came as a surprise because as they had "never seen him like this with a girl.” And a while back Blake was at Leo’s home in L.A and she "spent the whole time baking....Leo's never dated a girl who can cook. And he's smitten!"

A woman that is successful, beautiful and can cook… Why let go of her?

Another source said: “Don’t be surprised if you see them back together in six months. This has nothing to do with having feelings for anyone else.”
