While new couple Josh Duhamel and Eiza Gonzales might have seemed to be completely infatuated with each other while piling on the PDA on their recent Mexican getaway, it seems that the romance was left in Mexico.
After five months of dating it’s being reported that the actor and actress have called it quits and well, by the looks of things it doesn’t seem to have been a smooth break up.
According to The Daily Mail, 45-year-old Duhamel was walking from the gym to his car when he confirmed the news of the split to photographers, but in a pretty savage way.
“If you are looking for Eiza, we’re done,” he said. Damn Josh!
Since the split was announced, ET are reporting that the pair’s busy schedules and different lifestyles may have been to blame for the break up and that Josh was the one who initiated it.
“Josh Duhamel and Eiza Gonzales have ended their relationship,” said a source to ET. “Josh truly enjoyed Eiza’s company but is ready to move on. Eiza was very busy with work and so was Josh. She was willing to do whatever it took to make it last, but josh just isn’t in that place at the moment.
“While they did end things partially because of their work schedules, they also called it quits because they truly on different pages and the timing just wasn’t right,” the source continued.
“She was looking for a serious relationship and want a life partner. He wasn’t at that point.”
Josh and the 28-year-old actress were first linked as an item back in February but didn’t go public with their relationship until later in the Summer after being spotted on a date at a Beverly Hills restaurant in June.
This relationship came after Duhamel split from his wife Fergie in September last year after eight years of marriage. The source said that it was possible that he had never completely gotten over this break up.
“Josh and Fergie’s break up is still very raw and painful for him,” the source continued. “He worked hard to move on from his eight-year marriage and Eiza was a wonderful companion for him during a very difficult time.”
“After Josh and Fergie split, he wasn’t expecting to get involved with anyone so soon and, in the end, Josh didn’t have the same goals as Eiza. Josh and Fergie have been talking often. He has done everything to keep their parenting relationship intact, but he also misses her.”
Josh and Fergie share one child together, four-year-old Axl Jack Duhamel.
