Ryan Phillippe has split from his lawyer fiancée Paulina Slagter.
The shocking break up comes just 10 months after the two became engaged. The actor, 42, popped the question to the Stanford graduate, 24, last Christmas after dating for five years.
It comes as a surprise as Ryan often gushed about his special lady and how smart—and beautiful—she is.
“When people see her they have these judgments because she could be a model but she's about to graduate Stanford Law,” he said this past summer.
“Also what's great about it, as you get older certain issues become more important to you. I'm very involved in civil rights issues, and so to be with a woman who could actually make an impact in the legal realm—that's a beautiful thing.”
Ryan was previously married to Reese Witherspoon for eight years before their divorce in 2007. They share two children, Ava, 17, and Deacon, 13. Ryan also has a child with ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp. He also dated actress Abbie Cornish for four years.
