It was a bit of a shock to learn that Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson were splitting up, and now it’s being reported that the “Van Wilder” stud is back in touch with an ex-flame.
According to Us Weekly, Reynolds has been communicating with an unnamed former girlfriend in this time of need.
A source explained, “Ryan has been reaching out to an ex the past few months. He is seeking comfort, but not in a romantic or sexual way.”
Meanwhile, it seems Scarlett was the one who decided to call it quits. "She's been unhappy for a while,” said a pal, also noting that the pair spent too much time apart.
Ryan and Scarlett released a joint statement, saying, "We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it."
