Phillipe and Cornish split

Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish have split up.

Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish have split up.

The ‘Elizabeth: The Golden Age’ star moved out of the Los Angeles home the pair shared on Sunday and it has been confirmed the couple’s romance is over.

A representative for the Australian actress said: “Abbie ended the relationship with Ryan and she moved out of their home.”

However, the rep’ did not give a reason for the separation.

Rumours have been rife for some time that Ryan, 35, and 27-year-old Abbie’s relationship was on the rocks.

At the beginning of the year it was reported the pair were "fighting all the time" over the actor’s apparent reluctance to commit.

A source said at the time: "The main thing is that Abbie wants to be married and start a family and she feels it's beyond time for Ryan to make that happen. Ryan is spending more and more time partying."

Abbie and Ryan – who has two children, Ava, ten, and Deacon, six, from his marriage to Reese Witherspoon – first met in 2006 on the set of their film ‘Stop-Loss’ and officially started dating in 2007.
