Buzzfoto Blind Item #477

About two years ago these stars broke up and the public went nuts. The actress dropped off the radar for a while. What we didn't know was that she was carrying his baby and the pregnancy was the reason for the split. If we understand our source correctly, neither wanted a baby but she didn't believe in abortion. The stress of the situation was too big a strain on their relationship and so they split. She had her baby quietly and gave it up for adoption with no one the wiser.

some thoughts...Avril Lavigne and Derek Whibley, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman. I also thought Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas but it doesn't really seem like Taylor Swift ever dropped off the radar in the past 2 years(?)

MM said...

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams? Although that would be really sad.

NezumiRyuko said...

Not sure if it's relevant, but the blind calls the couple "stars" and the woman "actress," but no direct title for the man... Could this mean he's a celebrity, but not an actor? Musician perhaps?

Ado said...

Celebrity breakup "about two years ago" - does this refer to 2008..?

A random list of breakups in 2008: http://www.whosdatedwho.com/sections/celebrity-breakups/archive/2008

Kate Walsh + Alex Young...??

did she drop off for a while..?)

Jennifer said...

Kate walsh has been on Private Practice whole time, can't imagine she'd be able to hide a pregnancy.

Erin said...

Nicollette Sheridan & Michael Bolton? Just a thought....

Jennifer said...

I think what needs to be focused on is the fact that the public went crazy when they broke up - not sure that stands for the Nicolette/Michael guess. It does for Ryan/Rachel - whomever it is - very sad indeed

blurry vice said...

Hmm, yeah maybe Ryan and Rachel. ???

I said...

Heidi Montag?

Nora said...

I think it may be Ryan and Rachel as well. If you look at her pictures, there is a 1 year gap where she's not in the public eye or at at a premier...

Nora said...

Sorry, I forgot to add that I was looking at IMDB.com

duffgrl said...

If it was Ryan/Rachel, it(the pregnancy) would have had to have been after their first breakup in '07. They broke up for good in Nov '08 and she started dating Josh Lucas only 2 months later...plus she filmed a bunch of movies after the 2nd breakup.

Amy said...

I don't think it's Rachel & Ryan - as I believe she made too many films in that period to be able to successfully hide a pregnancy.

Some possible contenders for break-ups in 2008:
Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo (though I don't think she qualifies as an actress, or that she really went away for a while - though this was at the time that all of the fat rumours started and she was raised a Baptist Minister's daughter, so I can totally see her refusing an abortion)
Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson - actress that feels she may have been too young to have a child. Also only one movie was released in 2008 - The Wrestler.
Emily Blunt and Michael Buble - this one actually makes sense for me, as I think she did drop of the radar for a while there.

Thoughts?

Amanda said...

Jamie Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrera?

Bindi said...

Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia? No idea if she was in hiding after the split...but they did break up 2 years ago (Feb 09):

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20259513,00.html

Kristen said...

It can't be Hayden and Milo. There were both on "Heroes" at that time, which only got canceled this past May. Thus, she didn't drop off the radar.

diyana said...

Hey all, long time lurker and first time commenter so I'm not too sure how to do this.

I was thinking Camilla Belle and Joe Jonas? They broke up in July 09, she was raised in a strict Catholic household and JoBros were uber popular at the time so the public/teenage girl fans would've gone nuts.

But I think she was filming Father of Invention in July 09 and promoting it in February 2010 so darn it. I'll try again.

Big fan of the site and the Sisters. Love how everything's so organized!

Blackheart23 said...

I was going to suggest Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody, but they broke up in 2004. This one is really tough, I like the Michael Buble and Emily Blunt guess. I looked on imdb to see if Emily did any movies in that time, and she did a few, only 2 in 2008 and 3 in 2009, compared to all the movies she's done recently.

Clancy said...

That could just be put down to her popularity increasing steadily over the years, bringing her more movie parts.

I just saw a pic of Sarah Silverman looking particularly busty and rounded which was interesting.

But I'm still not sure any of the couples guessed so far made the public go nuts - did they? Not that I've got anything better to offer at the moment in the way of guesses, but I would have thought that comment would relate to big stars whose break-up would have drawn gasps; a couple who seemed so perfect together and perhaps who've been together quite a while? Maybe the author's just prone to exaggeration.

Leanne said...

Jennifer Anniston and John Mayer?

Tara said...

Clancy, that is a very interesting guess--I can see it. I think people were surprised when Sarah & Jimmy broke up, especially since they seemed perfect together. She does joke about abortion though....but I still like the guess:)

hzystar293 said...

There was a guess of Doug Reinhardt and Amanda Bynes on BlindGossip. That could explain her "retirement" and why she looked so weird in Easy A.

Cathy said...

@hzystar293 - that's a good guess, but her "retirement" was only about six months ago.

Clancy said...

Tara, I wish I could take the credit for that one - it was duffgrl's guess :)

I said...

Sarah Silverman is an interesting guess. She has gone on record saying she doesn't want children due to her suffering from depression or bi-polar disorder and not wanting to pass it on to her child.

That's why I can't see her having a child and giving it up for adoption seeing as that would be producing a child with potential mental issues and giving it up for adoption to a family which may not be able to handle those issues...in fact, may not even realize that depression/bi-polarity may genetically be a problem for their child.

Additionally, someone who clearly doesn't want to take the risk of passing on (what she believes to be) deleterious genetic material would (I believe) be vigilant about protection during sex.

And finally, Sarah Silverman is Jewish (and not Orthodox) and abortion is not taboo within non-Orthodox Judaism so she wouldn't have grown up feeling it is a sin. And, like someone else posted, she jokes about abortion a lot...but that could mean she, personally, is seriously against it...so who knows.

C said...

Obviously Rhianna is not an actress, but to me that is the ONLY reason this doesn't fit perfectly for her and Chris Brown. Their whole fiasco happened in Feb. 2009, almost exactly two years ago. And she definitely was off the radar for several months, and it was a very public split with a lot of public opinion swirling around it. I know it's a stretch with the "actress," description, but I can't think of any better options ...

Tara said...

Whoops, thanks Clancy, sorry Duffgrl, I like the Sarah and Jimmy guess. Also, what about Owen Wilson & Kate Hudson or Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrara?

Amanda said...

Also remember the "public went nuts" when they broke up comment - none of these seem to fit...

Rita, Montreal said...

I like the Sarah and Jimmy. On Bill Maher last time Sarah was on, she had publicly stated that she doesn't want any kids, HOWEVER, she would adopt one that is handicapped, locally (a dig at Angie).

She was high as a kite on that show.

As for Kate and Owen: only Owen disappeared after attempting suicide. Kate kept on smiling for the cameras. She gives me the impression that she wants more kids, no matter the father, which in the end would not matter... My thoughts on Kate.

Cathy said...

Although I don't have any better guesses to put out there, I just can't get on board with the Sarah Silverman guess. Would she really be referred to as an "actress?" Sure, she's done some guest spots on shows, but I wouldn't consider her an actress.

And to I - I'm not sure if you meant it this way, but I found it pretty offensive that you think just because she is a non-orthodox jew, she'd automatically be okay with abortion. I myself am a non-orthodox jew and yes, I am pro-choice when it comes to women having the option, but I myself could never bring myself to have one. It just comes off as very ignorant when you make assumptions on how someone feels on such a deeply personal topic based on their religion.

I said...

@Cathy: I honestly don't know how you came to the impression that I was making assumptions on how Sarah S would feel about abortion.

I simply said, that Sarah S, not being raised as an Orthodox Jew would not grow up feeling it is a sin. "Sin" being defined by the dictionary as a "transgression of divine la"...i.e. religious law. Thus Sarah S, not being an Orthodox Jew would not grow up feeling it is a sin.

Then, in that same paragraph, I go on to say that Sarah S "jokes about abortion a lot...but that could mean she, personally, is seriously against it". How does that in any way imply that she is okay with abortion? In fact, if anything, it implies the opposite.

I said...

um, meant to say sin is defined as "transgression of divine law" not "transgression of divine la" LOL.

Kristen said...

I don't think we can make any assumptions about people's feelings regarding abortion based on their religion. Like Cathy, there are many women who are technically pro choice, but could never have one themselves. There are also many women with a pro life stance who aren't religious at all, or come from otherwise progressive backgrounds. And of course, the opposite is also true. Many conservatives and former pro lifers have abortions, too. I think that religious and/or political background might help cement a strong candidate, but I wouldn't use that as the only reason to rule someone out or to point the finger at them. I think that, for many people, it's hard to say what they will or won't do until they're directly faced with that situation. I'm just glad that I haven't been in that kind of bind yet, and I hope that I never will be.

I think that it's best to just stick exclusively to the clues in the bind. I was thinking that Sarah Silverman could be it because she and Jimmy Kimmel broke up in March 2009 and her show was between seasons at that time. But she was on several talk shows during that hiatus. The largest gap I could find on IMDB between appearances would be March to August. I don't know if that's enough time to hide a pregnancy.

RestroomConfessionals said...

I'm really liking the Sarah Silverman-Jimmy Kimmel guess. I didn't even know they were still together til I saw everywhere that they broke up and the timing fits.

Plus, I love me a good abortion joke-and frequently make one-but doubt I could go through with one myself.

As for her not wanting to pass on depression/bi-polar disorder to her kids, it's possible she wouldn't want to pass it on KNOWING that she couldn't handle it while suffering herself.

Cathy said...

I just keep coming back to the fact that the woman is referred to as an actress. If it were Sarah Silverman, wouldn't she have been referred to as an entertainer?

Jaclyn said...

@Cathy Well, she primarily acted before she got really famous. She was in There's Something About Mary, for example - I was watching it on TV awhile back, and I was pretty surprised when she popped up. She also has a TV show, it's in its (I think?) third season now.

crila16 said...

Sarah Silverman IS an actress and has been in plenty of movies as an actress, not just an entertainer. She's even in IMDB as an actress/comedienne. She was in School of Rock, she was on Monk...take a look at her IMDB credits.

The point is...it's an actor/actress that broke up in the last couple of years that people were really sad about. There are only 2 couples that I can think of that most people thought were MFEO.

1. Sarah Silverman & Jimmy Kimmel. It was such a sad and quiet break-up with no drama and no explanation. Peole thought they were perfect together and they seemed to really get along. Then Sarah just disappeared for a while after the breakup.

2. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. McGosling fans were devestated. Then Rachel didn't do much work for about a year or so and was hardly seen in the media. That also could be because she's a very private person.

I definitely don't think it's Hayden and what's his name. Everyone thought she was crazy for dating him in the first place, considering he had a reputation for being abusive and she was underage. Plus she never disappeared for any lengthy period of time after the breakup. She was out trying to save dolphins.

dot said...

I'm a long time lurker and love reading your comments and guesses. I wanted to help you narrow it down. Sarah Silverman didn't fall off of the radar after Jimmy Kimmel. She was dating an acquaintance of mine for over a year. Definitely not her. She has never had a child.

Kristen said...

Thanks for the tip, dot. Was the guy famous at all or just a regular guy? Did you ever meet her? I'm wondering why no one here seems to know about him if they were together for that long.

I said...

My FIRST guess is for Miley Cyrus & Justin Gaston.

1) They are both young and Miley could feel unready to raise a child.

2) Miley's teen fans go nuts over everything she does!

3) Both are "stars". Only Miley is an "actress". Justin is mostly a model and sometime singer but don't think he's done much acting.

4) Did she drop off the radar for a bit?

My SECOND guess is for Michelle Williams & Spike Jonze.

1) Michelle may be unready to entertain raising another child so soon after Heath's passing.

2) People may have felt bad her relationship ended b/c they wanted happiness for her after Heath passing.

3) Both are "stars". Michelle is an "actress". Spike Jonze doesn't really do much acting.

4) Don't know if Michelle dropped off the radar.

Clancy said...

I, I think the Michelle Williams and Spike Jonze guess is a good one, the feel of the post seems to fit Michelle perfectly and I can see her not being ready for another child, perhaps in fear of losing the father again, not being mentally prepared at that point etc etc.

She had a quiet year in 2009 in relation to 2008 and 2010, although that of course could relate to her taking a year off to recover from Heath's death.

She blames the split on 'life circumstances' which is nice and vague - and fitting here.

I'm not sure the public went nuts though?

I thought of perhaps Drew Barrymore and Justin Long who split in July 2008 (possibly stretching the limit of 'about two years ago')
I read though that Drew wants kids but perhaps when it comes to the crunch she could be a bit screwed up by her own childhood and worried about taking the plunge.
She started dating Justin in 2007 and had a very quiet year in 2008, only doing a voiceover so that fits.
Again, though just not sure the public went nuts.

Clancy said...

So I've got to thinking what could constitute 'the public went nuts' (it's killin' me!). Possibilities:

1) As we've discussed, it could be the couple had been together for years, seemingly happy, and no one saw it coming.

2) It was a teen hearthrob involved and the teens went crazy in a 'omigosh, he's single again!!!' way.

3) It could have made the gossip mags explore the break-up, eg 'Behind the shock split', 'Why they broke up' etc etc with a front-cover pic.

I Googled covers for 2008 (couldn't find 2009 ones) for the last option and didn't come up with much except a front-page caption on Drew B.

Kadixonlaw said...

@I... I recently read some excerpts of Michelle W.'s Nightline interview where she discussed taking time off following Heath Ledger's death. It's possible that her reason for laying low may have been two- fold (e.g. grieving AND preggers).

@Clancy... I don't recall people going nuts following the Michelle/Spike breakup either. After reading lists of breakups in 2008 and 2009, I don't see any that created much of stir. Maybe I'm missing something...

Clancy said...

Same Kadixonlaw, I've googled this thing to death! (Thinking to myself what I could achieve if I put this much time into other things in life! lol).
Either we're missing something or the poster is exaggerating about the public going nuts.

I wonder if what we're missing is this is an older couple who felt too old to have children? Would certainly fit the public shock factor if they'd been together forever. The only older couple I remember seeing on the covers was Madonna and Guy Ritchie, whose divorce was announced around October 2008. But then, she's not primarily an actress and she would have been 50 in 2008, too old for babies.

So refining that, maybe an older couple but with the actress being of an age in which she can still have babies lol.

Warrior Two said...

Drew and Justin are the ones who make the most sense.

I said...

@Clancy: You are very thorough and logical in your thinking!

I, also, was thinking what "the public went nuts" meant since I find that wording interesting. And I also thought about your #2: teen hearthrob idea.

Has this been said before: Joe Jonas & Camilla Belle?

* Public went nuts b/c he is again single (albeit for a little while).

* Both of an age where raising kids may not be what they want.

I said...

Okay, so here's another idea:

Joe Jonas and Brenda Song. Apparently he dated her after Camilla: http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00026171.html

And if you google Brenda Song, there are rumblings she is pregnant but she won't confirm who the father is although she says it ISN'T Joe. Hmm.

Ah, the sex lives of these teens kinda bores me though.

I said...

Or Jesse McCartney & Brenda Song (who ARE these people?!?!). I googled Brenda Song and his name came up a lot and he's a musician (not actor).

Clancy said...

Lol, randy teens! Gotta agree on their sex lives boring you; I had to look these kids up to know who they were.

It could be Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle, who broke up between March and July 2009, although Camilla had a couple of projects going in 2009 and also in 2010, so she didn't really drop off the radar. (Although I'm not really sure how movie timelines work: are the dates on IMDB the release dates of the films or the year they're shot?)

Anyway, I think these two could possibly fit the public going nuts because Joe Jonas dumped Taylor Swift by phone and then it was reported Camilla dumped Joe's ass, with ensuing talk of karma etc. Did it create some sort of a stir in the US?

Would Jesse McCartney be considered a big enough star for this? I'm no teen whizz.

But I think the CB/JJ guess is clever because he was supposed to have been a card-carrying virgin and so forth and the stress of that, as well as their ages, would have definitely led to a crisis sitch.

Clancy said...

I just realised diyana made a point about CB and JJ; that she was raised in a strict Catholic household. More fuel for the fire! The only outstanding issue then is whether she dropped off the radar.

Apologies for the numerous posts, but I'm like a dog with a bone on this one.

Kristen said...

@I, Jesse McCartney acts as well as sings. He was in an awful, short-lived WB show called "Summerland". I think that his character on that show may be my most hated TV character ever. LOL.

Tara said...

That would be crazy if this were Camilla Belle. I don't know if people ever really LOVED them together since it was post-Taylor and all that, but this would be super juicy!

I said...

In Ted's BB, he says Camilla Belle hasn't had an acting job in a long time but that she's "everywhere" (whatever that means). Don't know what to make of that: http://ca.eonline.com/uberblog/b221531_bitch-back_some_twi-hards_canrsquot_read.html

Jamee said...

I really don't think anyone cared when Camille Belle and the Jonas broke up. They were together for like 8 seconds.

Drew Barrymore and Justin Long are still together, no? They broke up briefly but not for good.

Jamee said...

And it really doesn't matter what Ted says about Camille Belle...this is a Buzzfoto blind.

Clancy said...

Jamee, yeah, they did get back together/are still together, but I don't think that would preclude them here given the way the post is written, ie based on what happened two years ago.

WT said...

Just wanna throw another name in the mix and see what you think.

Ginnifer Goodwin and Chris Klein.

He was considered a hottie after the American Pie movies, right?

And if you look at her IMDb photo page, there's only one pic of her in mid-2008, in which she's wearing a wide, flowy dress. The pair split up in december 2008 "because they wanted different things."

It seems to work with the timeline for shooting and promoting He's Just Not That Into You. Not 100% sure this fits with the shooting schedule for Big Love though (hard to tell from IMDb).

Kelly said...

@WT... I love that guess, but isn't Ginnifer on the show Big Love? If so, that show has been running since 2006. I'm not sure the time between seasons would be enough to conceal a pregnancy. I could be wrong, though.

-KADixonLaw

Chenell said...

I'm going with Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupre on this one. She dropped off the radar and gained a ton of weight during that time frame. She doesn't want kids, so I think it really fits

I said...

@Chenall: That's a really interesting guess. Apparently Janet is rumored to already have a biological kid that one of her brothers is raising (had adopted). So that would fit on the (i) not wanting a kid and (ii) not wanting an abortion and (iii) being find with adoption.

However, to counter your guess, didn't she step up to the plate and say she would raise Micheal's kids if there was a problem with Katherine Jackson as guardian? Don't recall exactly...but if that's the case...then that's a stumbling block. Janet has her own money so I doubt she would be willing to raise Micheal's kids only because of the money. And not want to want to raise her own. But again, can't recall if Janet actually did step up to the plate on that.

I said...

um,sorry for the typos.

Cathy said...

@I - I think I remember that too - either that, or the media was just really hoping she'd take the kids in.

Chenell said...

Yeah I think that was more media hype than actual words from her. I just keep looking at pics of her from back then and she just so big, it looks like pregnancy weight. She's known more as a singer than an actress but she has done quite a few movies lately. Plus, their break-up was kind of a big deal I think. More so than some of the other guesses out there

medusa said...

@Kelly - About the Ginnifer Goodwin guess - her chracter was pregnant during one season on the show, so it actually wouldn't have been necessary to conceal a pregnancy during that time. But I agree that doesn't fit with "dropping off the radar" although it would be an interesting way to have a baby with "no one the wiser"!

("No, I'm not really pregnant - I just wear the tummy pads home to stay in character. Really!")

Kelly said...

@Medusa... Thanks for the heads-up! I've actually never seen the show, but that would be an interesting and convenient way of concealing a pregnancy! : )

EnglishBarb said...

'she didn't believe in abortion' - my first thought was Catholic Actress, 2 names immediately spring to mind. Cruella, but with her fertility issues I can't even see her doing this. 2nd name: Katie Holmes...

sistah2 said...

still think its Ryan/Rachel, cant think of anyone else that the public went 'nuts' when they broke up, although this seems implausible that they could have hid this, and the bigger gossip sites did not jump on this? ONly buzzphoto?

sistah2 said...

Just researched a little and someone on CDAN says its def. Hayden P and her former bf . Milo V. Plausible?

Rita said...

Well, I was sadened when they broke up. At that time I used to be a Heroes fan. However, if I remember correctly, Hayden did not disappear and kept on filming Heroes... The series was still on...

This still leads to that Jonas brother and Camilla Belle: remember when Jonas revealed during a show that his girlfriend dumped him, and he cried on stage? Camilla got a lot of hate from his fans...

Alejandra said...

Wasn't Camilla Belle seen with Robert Pattinson frequently after she split with Joe Jonas? I think I remember seeing multiple paparazzi shots of her during that time. I don't think it is her and Joe Jonas. I like the Rachel McAdams guess as I think their relationship fits best with the whole public-went-nuts clue.

sistah2 said...

sadly I think its McGosling. I did some googling and she dropped out of sight mid summer 2007 until spring 2008. Around Aug '07 is when they broke up. She also did not do any films at this time - media reports said she took 'a break'. They got back together in July 08 until Nov 08.
the timeline fits, plus there is NO other couple that broke up that you could say 'the public went nuts'..
LIving in Canada, she could have hid this a bit easier, too.

iamthewalrus said...

I wonder if it was ryan and rachel bc rachel was seen with other guys after ryan and didn't drop off the face of the earth. ryan did however. so I don't know how rachel could have hid the pregnancy.
