Blake Lively is facing off against husband Ryan Reynolds over his intent to blow $300 million on a hockey team, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The Deadpool star, 46, has the bucks from his stake in the just-sold wireless company Mint Mobile. But instead of banking the nine-figure windfall, he’s hellbent on buying the Ottawa Senators, revealed a source.
“Blake is furious,” said the insider. “She thought this money would mean Ryan could finally cut back on work and help more at home.”
The hockey deal wouldn’t be Ryan’s first foray into the wide world of sports.
The Canadian-born actor, who shares four kids with the 35-year-old Gossip Girl alum, bought the U.K. soccer club Wrexham AFC in 2022. “Blake was not happy about that decision,” said the source. “But in the end, she stood by him. He may not be so lucky this time.”
The insider warned, “If he has any hope of making Blake happy, he’ll give up his plan to buy the hockey team.”
The kids, coupled with their different outlooks on how to cash in on the $300 million, have made it tense at home.
Ryan even spoke about his family in a recent interview, hinting the house is like a “zoo.”
