Blake Lively & Leonardo DiCaprio Split Up, Of Course

blake livelyI come with grave news, guys. Today is a really sad day in the world of Hollywood romances. One of Tinsel Town's longest, most rock solid couples -- Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively -- have broken up. I know. It's like living Brad and Jen all over again. Somebody hold me.

I mean, where-oh-where did they go wrong? They're both actors. They're both aesthetically-pleasing. They're both ... human beings. What could have driven these two fine specimens out of each other's perfectly-sculpted arms?


As with most Hollywood break-ups, it remains a mystery. But reps for both Blake and Leo confirm the gut-wrenching news. DiCaprio's "people" even added a gratuitous: "They remain friends." Twist the knife a little harder, why don't you? The couple was together for five long months, and friends of Leo's really thought Blake was the one, saying things like, "I've never seen him like this with a girl," and "I bet they get engaged in six months." There was even the story of the two of them spending the month of June holed up in Leo's pad while Blake baked. They were perfect for each other, for God's sake! Perfect!

No, in all seriousness, this is about as surprising as Jesse James and Kat Von D's split. Of course they broke up. Despite their similar gift of genetics, what the hell were these two doing together in the first place? They never quite made sense to me. Maybe it was their age difference (12 years), or maybe it was their seemingly out-of-nowhere relationship, or, maybe, just maybe, it was that the both of them just broke up with people, respectively, right before getting together. It was doomed to fail before it even began. Everything can't always come up Blake and Leo.

Don't feel bad for them, though. They're both still really, really good-looking.

Are you surprised by this?
