Ryan Reynolds revealed that he caught one of his closest friends trying to sell photos of his baby to tabloids.

Reynolds has a nine-month-old daughter with actress Blake Lively. In an interview with GQ, the 38-year-old actor said he’ll never talk to the guy again.

“A guy that I’d known for my whole life, one of my closest friends growing up, he had been shopping pictures of my baby around,” Reynolds said during his interview. “I kind of got in front of it, which is good. But it was a slightly dark period. A bad couple of weeks.” (SLIDESHOW: Blake Lively’s Going To Be One Hot Mom)

“It was like death. It was like one of those devastating things to find out.”

“I mean, I don’t think he thought he would ever be caught. But it’s a pretty narrow group of people that I would send photos like that to. They’re just, like, my closest family and my closest friends: ‘Here’s us in the delivery room!’”

“Well, I think he’d ask for a check enough times where I was like, ‘There’s no more checks to be had.’”

Reynolds said he won’t talk to the guy again.

“There isn’t really a conversation to have. It’s just, ‘Oh, well, now I’m never going to see you or talk to you again, unfortunately.’ That’s kind of how it works out.” (PHOTOS: Blake Lively A ‘Role Model’ For Breastfeeding In A Bikini Top)
