Scarlett Johansson Ryan Reynolds Divorce: What Happened to their MarriageMariaLianos
One day after announcing the end of her two-year marriage to Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson was spotted on vacation with her girlfriends in Jamaica.
But she’s still wearing her wedding ring, according to reports.
Johansson wasn’t ready to part with the ring even as she was “partying very hard” on her “girls’ trip,” a source close to the couple told the Daily News.
Johansson and Reynolds are handling the impending divorce “really well,” the source said.
Sources say their marriage had been troubled for months, with reports that Johansson saw a therapist, Reynolds had a fling with Blake Lively and the two had a trial separation first before ending the marriage.
“Scarlett began seeing a therapist” in Manhattan two months ago to figure out her marital issues, the source said, but she was unable to “hash it out.”
It seemed like the couple were trying hard to save their marriage. Reynolds gushed to GQ in October about their marriage, saying it was the “best part” of his life. Over the summer, they bought a $2.8 million mansion in Los Angeles and thought about adding a nursery. Then they shopped for a bigger Manhattan apartment.
But the marriage inevitably crumbled because of their hectic work schedules.
The source said the couple “tried to hold it together” so they could make it through Thanksgiving, which they celebrated with Johansson’s family in New York City. But the following night, Johansson went out with girlfriends for a birthday dinner on the lower East Side.
At the end of November when Reynolds returned to New York from Los Angeles, Johansson reportedly told him she wanted a divorce. The source said that Reynolds wasn’t ready to make such a decision and they agreed to a two-week trial separation. But after the two weeks, Reynolds gave in and agreed to split, the source said.
E! Online speculated that Blake Lively, who co-stars with Reynolds in “Green Lantern,” may have led him astray. The site reported “rumblings that everything wasn’t exactly up to wedding vow snuff with Ry” and Lively during the film’s shoot earlier this year in Louisiana.
On the brink of the divorce announcement, Johansson rounded up three girlfriends and took off for Jamaica, when the news broke of their divorce.
