"It has been very difficult for Tara, who has been saying he was the love of her life," the source adds. The breakup comes as a shock, considering the buff actor was singing his young lady love's praises just weeks ago.

"She's there when I need looking after and the world is a little too heavy," Henry said recently of Tara. "Then she will happily take that weight for me and make sure that I am OK."

The relationship didn't come without controversy, however, due to the difference in age between the two.

"People say, ‘Age is just a number,’” the Man From U.N.C.L.E. star told Elle UK. “A lot of times it’s not just a number. It’s actually a real and true sign of someone’s maturity. But in this case, she’s fantastic."
