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!
