Gina Rodriguez ‘splits from boyfriend’

Gina Rodriguez ‘splits from boyfriend’

Actress Gina Rodriguez has supposedly called it quits with Henri Esteve after they dated for over one year.

The 31-year-old Jane the Virgin star first struck up a romance with the actor following their introduction at a wrap party in May 2014.

But the entertainment industry seems to have come between them, as it’s rumoured she ended the romance because they simply weren’t spending enough couple time together due to work.

“Gina really cared for him. She is a sweet person with a prosperous career, but she has limited time and it was just a mutual split," a source told People magazine. "They are still friends and very realistic about relationships."

Speculation emerged there may be trouble in paradise when Gina attended events surrounding the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on 20 September (15) on her own.

But just a few months ago it seemed as if everything was perfect between them.

In June (15) Gina took to her Instagram page in honour of their one year anniversary to publicly express her love for Henri.

“It's you. It's always been you. One year down, I pray for a 100 more. Happy anniversary my love. @H_Esteve (sic),” she wrote.

Henri, an actor perhaps most well known for his role as Javier in hit US TV show Revenge, reciprocated Gina’s feelings.

“I love you baby,” Henri tweeted. “Happy Anniversary my love. Thank you for being the best teammate I could ever imagine.”

Gina has never shied away from sharing her feelings for Henri.

And even though breakup reports suggest their careers drove them apart, she has previously mentioned acting amplified their bond.

“He's gorgeous! And he's talented! And he's a really, really good guy!" Gina told E! News.

"I just know that I have a very strong and supportive boyfriend. He's an amazing artist himself who respects the craft… He supports me and I think that's all that matters. We're very honest and there's a lot of communication. He knows that my priority is Jane and him and family."
