Scoop: Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling rumored to be breaking up

Rumors of an impending breakup continue to swirl around cute couple Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling.

According to Radar Online, the pair is “on a break,” which, as those who watch “Friends” know, means a different thing to men than it does to women.

“There was a realization before Thanksgiving that they took things way too fast and were rushing towards marriage that neither of them particularly needed,” a source says.

While Mendes reportedly is ready to start having babies, Gosling, who directed the upcoming big movie “How to Catch a Monster” starring Mendes, has cold feet.

“They both know they need some kind of resolution in their relationship before they go out and promote their movie,” says the source, who adds, “Don’t be surprised if these two resurface together for New Year’s.”
