Ryan Speaks Out

Britney's split is what we're all talking about, but we still haven't forgotten about Reese and Ryan's shocking divorce announcement last week. Ryan is now speaking out for the first time about his split from Reese in what seems to be a response to the cheating rumors. He wants everyone to know that he's not perfect, and he's not guilty. People reports:

In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, Phillippe says, “I’m not a perfect person, but I’m not guilty of a lot of the things I have been accused of. My priority is and always has been the health and safety of my family."

Phillippe will not comment on reports that a relationship with Abbie Cornish – the Australian actress who costars with him in an upcoming film – played a role in the demise of his seven-year marriage to Witherspoon. But his reps vehemently deny other recent allegations of hard partying and drug use.

It’s no secret that Phillippe has always enjoyed hitting the clubs with friends. He and Witherspoon "would fight over that kind of thing all the time. He got away with a lot and he knows it," according to a source at a Santa Monica bar that Phillippe used to frequent. His rep, however, denies it: "Look, he went out, she went out, it wasn’t a point of conflict."

Others who know them say Phillippe often stayed at his Venice office after arguments with Witherspoon, sometimes "for days a time," says the source. "He said she hated that."

Ryan must be feeling pretty lucky there's a new divorce in Hollywood for us to all focus on!

I feel that usually if celebs refuse to comment on something, it means they've done it or have thought of doing it. ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

omg jazsama! i'm choking as i reread your comment for the 10th time. the image of him "whacking" her on the back and the "winded" expression on her face before she can move to the stage to receive her award is killing me. awwwww, poor reese. playsinthedirt i agree with your assessment of ryan. too bad for them and the kids.

Eh, I really couldn't care less about these two. Hollywood should really adopt an Open Marriage philosophy. There would probably be a 90% decrease in divorces.

It's knid of odd to make a denial about the partying and drugs but not comment on the cheating, which is the main rumour out there. Makes him sound guilty...

No comment always means they're covering something up.

this couple NEVER looked happy together. it always sux when people get divorced but i am relieved i will not have to see them try so hard anymore. she's too big of a star for him and he's too hot for her. "stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase sky's the limit."

Reese is a bit of a steel magnolia..I don't exactly picture her crying in her wheaties in the morning.. I am withholding judgement until more concrete information becomes available. It would be ironic after all of this to find out he was innocent and she cheated.

I'm really, really, really upset about them breaking up ... I really, really really wanted them to last forever and ever ... What a lowlife dog he is !!!! I hope he regrets what he did.

My friend who is a pap says it is well known that he has been running around on her for years--hence the on and off rumors for quite some time of their troubled marriage. Sad. I was just thinking with the brit/k-fed divorce that these 2 must be happy to have the focus somewhere else.

I couldn't agree more with POPs last comment. If he won't outright deny claims of the affair then it makes him look guilty. I hope it's not true but you never know. Reese looks amazing in this pic. Her coloring is so right on
