Ryan Reynolds was betrayed by his best friend after his daughter with Blake Lively was born in December.
He revealed that he caught his best friend trying to sell off pictures of his daughter James to the highest bidder. He told GQ, “A guy that I’d known for my whole life, one of my closest friends growing up, he had been shopping pictures of my baby around. I kind of got in front of it, which is good. But it was a slightly dark period. A bad couple of weeks.”
He went on to say, “It was like death. It was like one of those devastating things to find out.”
Reynolds also said that it wasn’t hard for him to figure out who was trying to sell the photos. He said, “I mean, I don’t think he thought he would ever be caught. But it’s a pretty narrow group of people that I would send photos like that to. They’re just, like, my closest family and my closest friends: ‘Here’s us in the delivery room!'”
Apparently the friend had been using Ryan to get money, but that well dried up. He said, “Well, I think he’d ask for a check enough times where I was like, ‘There’s no more checks to be had.'”
He added, “There isn’t really a conversation to have. It’s just, ‘Oh, well, now I’m never going to see you or talk to you again, unfortunately.’ That’s kind of how it works out.”
Can you blame him?
