Lively and Meester ‘not speaking’
Blake Lively and Leighton Meester are reportedly no longer speaking.
The blonde actress starred as Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl alongside Leighton in the role of Blair Waldorf.
Despite being onscreen best friends, it’s believed their real relationship is frosty, with Serena thought not to have reached out to her former co-star when she announced Adam Brody had popped the question in November.
“[Blake] was absolutely NOT one of the people who called Leighton to congratulate her on her recent engagement,” a source told RadarOnline.
“After something of a thaw in their relationship during the final two seasons of Gossip Girl, Leighton and Blake don’t speak anymore.”
Gossip Girl began in 2007 and featured a star-studded cast, which also included Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick and Taylor Momsen.
It ended in its sixth season last year and focused largely on Leighton and Blake’s characters and the ups and downs of their friendship.
While they always managed to make amends on screen, it sadly doesn’t appear to have worked out for the actresses.
“I think it’s simply a matter of both of them being happy not to have to spend 18 hours a day with each other, but the friendship they struggled to build at the end of Gossip Girl has evaporated and they continue to stay as far away from each other as possible,” the insider continued.
“It’s really sad because they both know they are role models for younger girls and they don’t want their dislike of each other out in the press — they still get bags of letters from the show’s fans every week. But the truth is, nobody in Blake’s life is urging her to be the bigger woman and patch everything up.”
