First Ed Westwick split from Jessica Szohr, and now Leighton has called it quits with her man, too. Love is NOT in the air on the Upper East Side!
It looks like NYC’s Upper East Side is cursed when it comes to love this week. First, it was reported that Ed Westwick split with his Gossip Girl co-star (and real-life GF) Jessica Szohr, and now it looks like Leighton Meester is done with HER man, Sebastian Stan!
The Gossip Girl starlet, who turns 24 April 9, apparently called it quits with Sebastian, 26, Chris Evans’ new sidekick in the upcoming Captain America flick, because she “doesn’t know how to be in a relationship and doesn’t really like them,” an insider tells OK!
Sebastian is “heartbroken”, claims the source, as it wasn’t his choice to end the nearly two-year relationship. Similarly Ed, 22, dumped Jessica, 25, after hearing she may have cheated on him with one of his friends, claims the NY Post.
It’s pretty spooky how life is imitating art in this scenario. On the April 6 episode of Gossip Girl, Leighton and Ed’s characters, Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass, ended THEIR relationship – and now their real-life romances are dunzo, too!
It’s been said that bad things come in threes. Which just leaves one more real-life couple – the gorgeous Blake Lively and BF Penn Badgley – left. Watch out, you two – you could be next!
