The MMA fighter turned actress and the Man of Steel have officially ended their relationship, according to E! News. A source revealed that Gina Carano and Henry Cavill actually broke up “a while ago,” even though the news is just breaking today.
The former Mixed Martial Artist and the British actor began dating in the fall of 2012. The couple split up in the summer of 2013, and Cavill began a short fling with Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco, who later told Cosmopolitan that she was not prepared for the baggage that came with dating the Man of Steel. “I had no one following me until I met Superman. I’ve been in this business for 20 years, and my whole life, I could go anywhere, do anything,” Cuoco admitted. “There had not been one paparazzi photo of me until like several months ago. The recognition was crazy.”
Cavill and Carano reunited in the fall of 2013 and even adopted an Akita puppy from a breeder in Arkansas. The handsome couple apparently made a big impression on the breeder, “It was so great working with Henry and getting to meet him as well as Gina was truly a treat,” the breeder said. “Both Henry and Gina are genuine and a joy to be around. It was truly an honor to add them to our extended family and thank them for their patience in meeting us and our children. It’s not everyday that an A-list celebrity, much less 2 celebrities, come to Beebe, AR to visit.”

Both Cavill and Carano will be busy professionally over the next couple of years. Cavill will put back on the Superman suit and square off against Ben Affleck for the epic blockbuster movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is scheduled to hit theaters in March 2016. Additionally, two Justice League movies have already been announced for 2017 and 2019.
It was also reported today that Carano will join fellow MMA fighter Georges St. Pierre and WWE superstar Dave Bautista in a remake of the 1989 movie Kickboxer, which starred Jean Claude Van Damme.
