Washington: Meg Ryan’s is reportedly selling her Bel Air mansion, which has some industry insiders wondering if she’s setting up house with boyfriend John Mellencamp.
Since last year, the ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ star has been seen sporting a silver band on her wedding finger, sparking rumours that she and Mellencamp might be headed to the altar.
Now, with the sale of her two-story home for 11.1 million dollars, speculation continues that Ryan may be looking to start a new life with the rock star.
“Selling a home is generally a guide that there is some big change in a celebrity’s life,” Popeater columnist Rob Shuter told ABC News.
Ryan and Mellencamp have been nearly inseparable since going public with their relationship last January, just weeks after the singer announced his split from his wife of 18 years.
According to reports, the 50-year-old actress trotted the globe with the 60-year-old singer during his 2011 world tour. The pair has also been spotted numerous times in his hometown Bloomington, Indiana.
Whether Ryan, who has a daughter and a son will relocate to Indiana remains to be seen.
But Mellencamp and his former wife Elaine Irwin, have made it clear that they plan to remain in Indiana, as his representative said in January, “they will continue to raise their children,” sons Hud, 17, and Speck, 16.
Mellencamp has a total of five children from three marriages.
Shuter said there have been sightings of the couple in New York, as well, but he wouldn’t be surprised if the pair decided to settle in Indiana.
“It’s not the media capital of the world. It’s a place where they can have a private relationship,” he said.
Shuter believes part of the reason their relationship has lasted so long is because they have managed to keep it “very, very private.”
For Ryan, selling her house could also mean the actress is ready for a fresh start.
She hasn’t starred in a film since 2009’s ‘Serious Moonlight,’ which bombed at the box office. But will star later this year in ‘Lives of the Saints’ alongside John Lithgow and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
