Henry Cavill & Ellen Whitaker Split, End Engagement

Henry Cavill and Ellen Whitaker have reportedly broken off their engagement after one year.

The 29-year-old Man of Steel actor and the 26-year-old show jumping rider have called it quits after speculation for the past few months that the couple were on the outs.

“There was no fallout. They just both agreed it wasn’t working,” a source told Us Weekly. “They broke up three months ago.”

Henry recently went solo while checking out various events during the 2012 Summer Olympics. He attended a jumping show that Ellen competed in earlier this summer, though they were not pictured together at the event.

# 6

Sad for them, but yay for us!

# 7

Were they ever together?

# 8

I thought he was gay?

@Sayer: I think you you may have him confused with Matt Bomer? I do it all the time :-)

I am calling it the man is gay or bi – thats the vibe I get from him.

The surprise here is that he is straight – which he is not.

christian grey doesn’t like blondes

She’s so ugly for him !

Oh feel so sorry for them , actually not that much , let’s fantasy begiiiiin

I don’t know how that was ever going to work. He moves about for work, she is tied down to either her yard or doing the competition circuit. There was never any way they were going to see each other and no way he was going to base himself out of her home in Yorkshire. He’s so much better off with her any way, don’t like the way she conducts herself professionally or personally.

I see 50 shades of gray!!! He is so fine and I wish he was mine!!!!!!!

Phew!! He’s sex on legs. Damn it<3

A rumored breakup of a rumored couple. Exciting news.

Finally get to see what she looks like after hearing so much about her whenever he was brought up.

I saw Henry on Bond Street in London with a blonde not long ago. They looked like they were a couple. I googled a picture of Ellen Whitaker when I got home and it definitely wasn’t her, this girl was prettier LOL ;) So most likely he already has a new girlfriend.

Not. Henry needs to make a lot of people happy and play the part of Christian Grey.

This is such a shame but I think, from things I’ve read, she likes to get wasted and has a problem with alcohol. Hope she gets help. Henry is such a hot-o-licious man.

I’m so happy he’s not with her anymore. Its not because I’m just a jealous girl who wants to date him, but between her lack of professionalism, the way she treats her horses when she looses and her DUI……. well lets just say he can do better.

This man is very, very hot. Whew. A movie with him and Chris Hemsworth and I’m officially in heaven…


so he likes blondes…wooohoooo….I’m blonde :D

this is gonna be a really mean thing to say but THANK GOD! <3

Henry is shopping for a girlfriend upgrade now that his Hollywood career is taking off.


@S: Pretty sure he already has one. Some one on this thread already posted that he was seen out n about with a blond, and the picture the Dailymail used she was also mistaken for Ellen Whitaker.

Thank you Jenny for posting that link. Henry looks his sexiest in that pic.

Now, is anyone surprised at the breakup?


Not single for long… Another boring fade blonde girl…

that girl (from the pic) is someone from his management team :o)

I think they broke up even before!!! (not since June) because in his birthday (in May) he was alone in a match in London and then ‘celebrating’ in a pub I think…

Do a search for Henry Cavill at this site There are many pictures there of him with a blonde.

She is not from his management team.

of course I’m not sure about it because (obviously) I don’t know him LOL but it’s what I read BUT I saw the pics Gina mentioned and I think she’s a friend (because of details LOL)

but well, he’s single now…

wait for me Henry! ;-) LOL

@Gina: how do you get to see the pics? Says u need a password?

who ever says ellen is ulgy hasnt a clue or must be a girl, she is geogous but too young to be married yet, it wudnt be in ellen intrest to treat horses badly at all, her horses are well fed@cared for in everyway, her drink driving was just a mistake she will learned from, we have all made some mistakes of somkind but sad from them both it didnt work out anyway

from the first moment I saw a picture of Ellen I felt they were not meant to each other (and I was true!) and now… he’s dating someone that doesn’t look like a LADY! (in the complete sense of the word) at least Ellen seems to be a lady and not a…
I hope he’s just dating this new girl…

eoin quinn @ 10/09/2012 at 6:32 pm

she is geogous, we all make mistakes so let her learn from it to become a better person, i think she will
