Leighton Meester and Justin Long sparked rumors of a budding romance back in May, when they were spotted exiting a Hollywood restaurant holding hands. Now, the New York Post is reporting that they've taken their new relationship bicoastal. Meester is back in New York City filming "Gossip Girl" and a source tells the Post that the pair have been "...spending a lot of time together."
Long and Meester have been single for some time, both ending long term relationships within the last two years. Long split from on-again, off-girlfriend, Drew Barrymore, multiple times, but there seemed no chance of reconciling when Barrymore stepped out with her new beau this past winter. Meester dated actor and occasional co-star, Sebastian Stan, but the pair called it quits in April of 2010.
Long is a mild eight years older than Meester, but she isn't the only "Gossip Girl" star who is having a May-December romance. Castmate Blake Lively has been dating Leonardo DiCaprio, who is a hefty 13 years older than the 23-year-old star, since the Cannes Film Festival in May. And for those of you wondering, they are still going strong.
