It's over: Gossip Girl co-stars Blake Lively and Penn Badgley end three year relationship



It's over: Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, pictured here in Los Angeles last November, have ended their three-year relationship

It looks like life is imitating art for Blake Lively and Penn Badgley.

The couple have ended their three-year relationship, just like their on screen characters Serena van der Woodsen and Dan Humphrey.

A representative for Lively, 23, and Badgley, 23, has confirmed the split.

The Gossip Girl stars started dating in 2007 after meeting on set.

And in spite of plenty of incidences where they were caught being affectionate in public, the pair initially denied their relationship and insisted they were just good friends.

They finally went public in 2008, openly attending events as a couple.

Despite any potential awkwardness there might be on set, it looks like Lively and Badgley's breakup will be more amicable than most.

Good friends: The pair are determined to say close and a source on set says they are getting along well despite the breakup

The two of them were seen shopping for candles together just last week in New York, and are determined to stay good friends.

'It didn’t seem like anything was off at all and no one said anything,' a source from the Gossip Girl set tells People magazine.

Both Lively and Badgley were at the Toronto International Film Festival last month, but tellingly, they were rarely seen together.

But Badgley did speak out in support of his then-girlfriend, whose premiere he missed because he was promoting Easy A.

He said: 'Unfortunately, her premiere is, like, right now, otherwise, we would be at each other's. I am [proud of her], absolutely.'

Lively recently told Allure magazine: 'I don't comment on my relationships. . . . My anonymity is something I treasure. Wanting to be an actor and wanting to be famous are different.'
