Reese Witherspoon forcing daughter Ava to mend her relationship with Ryan Phillippe


Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s daughter, Ava used to be very close to both of her parents.

But according to Life & Style, Ava’s relationship with her dad changed as she got older. As such, Reese Witherspoon is forcing her eldest daughter to mend her relationship with her dad.

“Ava regularly posts loving statements about her mom on social media, saying what a great parent and role model she is. But nothing about her dad,” a source said.

The insider also claimed that even though Ava and Phillippe follow each other on social media, the latter doesn’t also post anything about his daughter. As such, the Big Little Lies star has, allegedly, become concerned.

“Reese isn’t asking Ava to become BFFs with Ryan. She is, however, insisting that Ava make more of an effort with him,” the source said.

While it is true that Ava rarely posts photos of her dad, this doesn’t confirm that she’s estranged from Phillippe. Upon closer inspection, Phillippe doesn’t frequently post photos on his Instagram account.

Ryan Phillippe didn’t publicly greet Ava on her birthday this year

However, it is true that he has more photos of his son, Deacon than of Ava. But two years ago, he paid tribute to his 21-year-old daughter with a touching caption.

“My little star on her birthday. Love you. Such a proud dad,” he wrote.

In 2017, Phillippe shared another adorable snap of himself with his Ava on her birthday.

“Happy birthday, punk. I love you more than any strangers need read, but…” he captioned the photo.

This year, Philippe didn’t greet Ava on her birthday via social media. But it is important to note that the last photo he shared was in August. Ava’s birthday is on Sept. 9.

Ryan Phillippe hasn’t moved on from Reese Witherspoon

There have also been several other rumors surrounding Witherspoon and Phillippe. Last month, New Idea claimed that Phillippe was trying to get back together with the actress.

“Ryan’s tried to woo Reese so many times over the years that Jim Toth, her current husband, actually had to step in. Thankfully, Reese is all too familiar with his games. She’ll always be there for him but likes to stay away from his problems. She’ll check with his therapist as she’s not going to be cornered into a weird scene on a couch,” a source said.

However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. Reese Witherspoon and Phillippe have moved on from each other a long time ago.
