It's pretty clear at this point that Scarlett initiated the split, because up until just a few weeks ago Ryan was gushing about Scarlett being the best thing that has ever happened to him.
And now he has nowhere to turn. Aww. "Ryan has been reaching out to an ex the past few months," a Reynolds pal tells Us Weekly.
Yet it's purely platonic, the insider insists: "He is seeking comfort, but not in a romantic or sexual way."
Apparently Scarlett has been unhappy for quite some time. They were spending a lot of time apart and it finally got to the both of them, especially ScarJo.
Wonder which ex he's confiding in? Alanis Morissette perhaps? Rachael Leigh Cook? Kristen Johnston? The ex list is pretty short so you take your pick. I'm bummed it didn't work out for these two, I really liked them together.
