Despite reports of their relationship's demise, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal haven't parted ways. Or so says their spokesperson.
People.com spoke to Nancy Ryder, who reps both Reese and Jake, and she said the story that the two split up is simply "not true." She did not elaborate, but added simply: "They are still together."
In case you missed it over the holiday break, Witherspoon and Gyllenhaal, who had widely been considered one of showbiz's happiest couples, were said to be headed to splitsville.
Despite very recent stories and public documentation of their coupledom, a "source" close to Reese said the two had broken up. No details about the how, when and why of their split were given.
If the two do end up breaking up, it will come as a surprise to anyone who's kept up with Reese's love life. After having her relationship with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe exhaustively chronicled by every tabloid under the sun, she's been a bit coy about addressing the Jake subject directly. But she's not been shy about saying how good things have been for her since then.
"Suffice it to say, I'm very happy in life, and I'm very lucky to have a lot of really supportive people around me who care very much for me, and, you know, that's all you can hope for in life," Reese said in a 2008 Vogue cover story. "I am very blessed in that way."
Reese will be returning to the silver screen in 2010 after easing up on her work schedule. Jake Gyllenhaal stars opposite Natalie Portman and Tobey Maguire in the military-family drama, Brothers, which hits theaters this Friday.
