An American magazine has come up with claims that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have split. The celebrity gossip website claimed that the two parted ways after fighting over Emma Stone.

Mendes did not join the 36-year-old actor to the Academy Awards 2017, who was nominated for Best Actor for his role in the musical film, La La Land. An alleged source told Star Magazine: "Ryan desperately wanted Eva by his side. He told her how bad it looked when she wasn't there when he won his Golden Globe in January and that he was tired of making excuses for her. Ryan said that if she wasn't going to support him on the biggest night of his career, then would she ever? Eva snapped back that he shouldn't be worried, because Emma would be there for him."

The insider added: "Ryan stormed out of the house, and friends aren't sure if he returned at all that night. But now, Eva may not even want him back. She's ready to call it quits on their relationship."

"Some in their circle are convinced that she's already spoken to a lawyer," the source continued.

However, Mendes had revealed why she did not accompany Gosling to the Oscars 2017 held at the the Dolby Theatre on 26 February in Hollywood. During an interview with Shape magazine, the 43-year-old actress said she was at home with their two young daughters during the actor's big night. She said: "What people don't know about me is that I love being home. Instead of hitting the red carpet, I'd rather be with our girls."

Meanwhile, Gosling paid tribute to Mendes as he collected his Golden Globe award 2017 for the Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy prize for his performance in La La Land. He said: "I just would like to try and thank one person properly, and say that while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one the best experiences I've ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer."

He continued: "If she hadn't taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today. Sweetheart, thank you."
