TMZ obtained the pics of the blond bombshell, wearing a bikini and fedora, as she strolled with some girlfriends.
Only one man was visible in the group—Johnny Depp—on the cover of the Vanity Fair she had tucked under her arm.
A source said of Scarlett, "She's been unhappy for a while,” adding that their busy schedules are to blame.
But another friend tells Popeater.com their split came as a shock to most people who knew the couple well. "No one had any idea this was coming. They kept their private life so secret that I doubt we will ever really know what went wrong."
Insiders say the statement Ryan and Scarlett released yesterday will likely be the only one the press will get regarding their split. Sources say Ryan will under no circumstances answer any questions about it while promoting Green Lantern early next year.
"Anyone that asks personal questions will be asked to leave," the source said.
No fun! We want to know what went down! But when you think about it, if there was any drama, it would find a way to leak out to the press—maybe they really were that boring, and nothing dramatic led to their split!
