Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively silence split rumors with shopping trip

Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively have put to rest rumors of a break-up after shopping together in Los Angeles this week (ends22Jul11).

The Titanic hunk split from his on/off girlfriend Bar Refaeli in May (11) and soon became romantically linked to Lively after the new lovebirds enjoyed a night out together in New York.

The stars continued to flaunt their adoration for one another during the Cannes Film Festival in France, but recent tabloid reports suggested the brief romance was already over.

However, Lively made the most of a break in her Gossip Girl filming schedule on Wednesday (20Jul11) and flew from New York to L.A. to spend some quality time with her rumored beau.

The actress was seen browsing eyewear with DiCaprio at Solstice Sunglass Boutique and a store representative reveals the stars held hands throughout their shopping trip.

The source tells UsMagazine.com, "They seemed very much in love. They were in the store for about 10 minutes before a crowd of fans noticed them and they rushed out."
