The Hollywood pair have parted on good terms, according to insiders

The split comes less than two months after Gossip Girl Blake jetted all the way to Australia – where Leo is filming new flick The Great Gatsby – to celebrate her 24th birthday with him.

And it seems the break-up will a come as a surprise to friends, who tipped the pair to ‘get engaged in six months’ during the midst of their whirlwind romance in June.

‘[I have] never seen him like this with a girl.’ one friend told Us Weekly at the time, adding that the ‘smitten’ pair had been holed in up Leo’s LA mansion.

‘She spent the whole time baking… Leo’s never dated a girl who can cook. And he’s smitten!’ they said.

Blake and Leo first fuelled romance rumours earlier this month when they met for a catch-up onboard a glittering yacht at famous film festival Cannes.

The super-cute couple were then spied holding hands on a romantic Italian outing and cosying up during a day trip to Carmel, with some saying Leo had been pulling out all the stops to impress his new leading lady.
