Over: Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio have split after just five months of dating

They hit the relationship ground running, enjoying a whirlwind romance filled with exotic and glamorous trips around the world.

But it appears that the romance between Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio has already fizzled out.

Representatives for the Hollywood couple confirmed to Us Weekly magazine that the pair have called it quits after just five months of dating.

The two are now said to 'remain friends'.

The news may come as a shock to Leo's loved ones, who were certain that Blake was 'the one' for the actor, who has in the past dated supermodels Bar Refaeli and Gisele Bundchen.

'[I have] never seen him like this with a girl.' one friend told Us Weekly.

The insider told the publication that two months ago in June, the couple were holed up in the L.A home of the actor, and Blake blew Leo away with her home cooking.

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

Some even thought that the pair would even tie the knot.

'I bet they get engaged in six months,' another friend told Us Weekly.

Blake started dating the Shutter Island actor in May this year, and ever since the couple were seen enjoying dates all around the world.

They were spotted being intimate in Disneyland, Monte Carlo, Venice and Saint-Paul de Vence in France.

The pair also enjoyed time in Cannes, Monaco and Portofino - enjoying a whirlwind of story-book dates.

At the start of last month, Blake even jetted into Australia to visit Leo, who is currently filming The Great Gatsby.

Leo met Blake when she auditioned to play another tragic literary heroine - Daisy Buchanan in Luhrmann's forthcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby, opposite Leo in F. Scott Fitzgerald's titular role.

Blake lost out to British treasure, Carey Mulligan, but a dinner with DiCaprio seems to have secured her the role of Leo's girlfriend.

Blake and Leo's romance came after he split from long-time girlfriend Bar Refaeli.

It was confirmed back in June that Leo had split from Bar, a 25-year-old Sports Illustrated model after an on-off six-year relationship.

Blake meanwhile had been in a long term relationship with her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgeley, but their three-year relationship ended last September.
