    Default Ryan Reynolds' heartbreak over close friend's betrayal

    Ryan Reynolds' heartbreak over close friend's betrayal

    Woman's Day
    1 day ago


    Ryan Reynolds learned the hard way how money can come between friends, discovering a close friend tried to sell pictures of his baby.

    The father-of-one discovered that one of his close friends was trying to sell baby photos of his daughter, James, who was born in December.

    “A guy that I’d known for my whole life, one of my closest friends growing up, he had been shopping pictures of my baby around,” the 38-year-old told GQ magazine. “I kind of got in front of it, which is good. But it was a slightly dark period. A bad couple of weeks.”

    “It was like death,” he said of the experience. “It was like one of those devastating things to find out.”

    Blake Lively’s husband admitted it wasn't hard to find out who was taking advantage of him.



    © Woman's Day Ryan Reynolds was devastated when he discovered his friend had betrayed him.


    “I mean, I don’t think he thought he would ever be caught,” he said. “But it’s a pretty narrow group of people that I would send photos like that to. They’re just, like, my closest family and my closest friends: ‘Here’s us in the delivery room!’”

    The protective dad put the dots together, realising his friend was strapped for cash, describing the whole situation as “shocking”.

    “Well, I think he’d ask for a cheque enough times where I was like, ‘There’s no more cheques to be had.’”

    Baby James’ dad knew that he had to cut all ties.

    “There isn’t really a conversation to have. It’s just, ‘Oh, well, now I’m never going to see you or talk to you again, unfortunately.’ That’s kind of how it works out.”

    That sucks. It must feel terrible to know a friend would sell you out like that.

    It sucks. I read it as Burt Reynolds' betrayal (over baby) and that would suck more!

    yeah, it must have sucked.

    but i also think it sucks for ryan to be talking about his ex-close friend publicly, so soon after this happened.

    That conversation is quite awkward. It goes with the territory if you know someone famous (personally.)

    maybe. i just can't get on board with airing personal dirty laundry in the media when it is so recent.

    the ex-friend doesn't have access to the media so can't respond. not fair.

    I'm sure the media will hunt down the friend and then he/she will be able to tell their side.

    The ex friend has been cast into the wilderness so has nothing to lose now. It's tricky and expensive!

    It depends of course but this is the downside of being famous. Everybody talks and they try to contain the circle.

    I still can't get past the fact that someone is willing to pay money for a picture of the baby of a guy who starred in the dumbest super hero movie of the last 20 years.

    It's not like he is naming the guy in the press. If he's not trying to maintain the friendship, he can say what he wants IMO. It was a pretty shitty thing to do. Why not just ask the guy for money instead of trying to sell pictures of his baby.
