If you’re still digesting those last bits of holiday feast, here’s something else hard to swallow -- the possible demise of star couple Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Over the weekend, People magazine posted that the pair was kaput despite denials from respective publicists. Gossip site X17 Online, however, spotted an assistant of Gyllenhaal’s fetching two large suitcases from Witherspoon‘s Brentwood home on Sunday, then dropping them off at his own pad.

Are they or aren’t they? Evidence after the jump!

People reports that Jake is clamoring to marry Reese, but she’s gun-shy after splitting with Ryan Phillippe, the father of her children.

The luggage swap may seem to indicate the two are quietly negotiating a separation. But they’re a very private pair, and with big projects on the horizon -– Jake’s ‘Prince or Persia: The Sands of Time’ in May and a huge ensemble flick directed by James L. Brooks coming up for Reese – don’t expect a formal announcement.

What do you think? Are Reese and Jake done for good? Tell us in comments!
