Gossip Girl co-stars and real-life couple Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr are no longer together after he allegedly heard about her cheating with one of his friends.
Handsome heir Marco Minuto, the New York Post reports, is the other man. After one of his other friends blabbed, panicked Jessica then flew to London from L.A.
The goal was to beg him to take her back, but sources say Westwick is still deeply hurt by the betrayal and unmoved by her gesture. One source told the paper:
"Jessica recently celebrated her birthday in L.A. and was being openly affectionate and flirty with Marco. They ended up back at the same hotel later that night."
"Nobody knows what happened behind closed doors, but her behavior shocked a lot of their friends. Word quickly got back to Ed, who's been filming in Europe."
Weak. You do NOT f*%k with Chuck Bass!
WTF: Did Jessica Szohr really betray Ed Westwick?
The source continued that "Ed immediately ended their relationship on the phone, and Jessica, who adamantly denied anything happened with Marco, was so distraught over this that she flew to London last Friday with just the clothes on her back."
In vain, it looks like. At least for now.
"She's been begging Ed to take her back, but he is deeply hurt by the whole ordeal. He can't believe that she carried on this way with one of his friends."
Marco Minuto is in the same circle of friends as both of the Gossip Girl stars. Sounds like kind of a douche if he'd hook up with his good friend's girlfriend.
A rep for Jessica Szohr said that "She's been celebrating her birthday with Ed in London" and denied she'd cheated, saying, "The story has no merit."
Westwick's and Minuto's reps had no comment.
