Dumped! Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio are no longer a couple! According to several rumors on Tuesday (July 19), the couple has called it quits and Leo hopped a plane to Italy. The UK celebrity gossip rag, Now Magazine, is reporting that the Leo has dumped Gossip Girl, Blake.
Of course, the rumor is in its early stages, so who really knows if the 23-year-old Lively was really cut loose by DiCaprio. The rumor says it was Leo’s mother, Irmelin, who said that Blake Lively was not ‘good enough’ for her son.
The Now report says that a “close friend” (nothing like an unnamed source) insists that Leo’s mother was behind the break-up:
‘[Blake] tried hard to impress Leo’s mum when they met but Irmelin couldn’t stand her.
There is no word coming from either Blake Lively or Leonardo DiCaprio. Could fans be looking at another Katy Perry/Russell Brand mess, fabricated by the tabloids to sell more magazines? Stay tuned, this one could get good!
