Relations between former flames and longtime co-parents Reese Witherspoon and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe have reportedly further cooled. The Legally Blonde lead is allegedly giving her ex the cold shoulder now that their two shared children, Ava, 23, and Deacon, 19, have seemingly left the nest.
“Reese and Ryan maintained a civil relationship when they were making decisions about their children — but that’s gone now,” an insider close with the couple told Radar earlier this week.
Part of this breakdown, per the source, seemingly stems from Witherspoon looking to avoid Phillippe’s legal woes and personal drama. In 2019, the I Know What You Did Last Summer star made headlines for all the wrong reasons after ex Elsie Hewitt filed a $1 million lawsuit against the actor, alleging he battered her.
