Henry Cavill dumps girlfriend Tara King

Henry Cavill has dumped his girlfriend.

The 33-year-old actor has left 19-year-old student Tara King devastated after ending their romance, even though she thought he was "the love of her life".

A source told The Sun on Sunday: "Henry and Tara have split - it is official. Henry said the two of them could remain friends and he even invited her to his recent birthday party, which she went to, but the relationship is over.

"It has been very difficult for Tara, who has been saying he was the love of her life."

The split comes as a surprise as less than two months ago, Henry - who met Tara at Mahiki nightclub in London - gushed about how Tara was always there for him when he is having a hard time.

He said: "She protects me and is protective of me when I am having a hard time.

"She's there when I need looking after and the world is a little too heavy.

"Then she will happily take that weight for me and make sure that I am OK."

Despite his fame, the 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' said he is thankful Tara treats him as a "normal" human being.

He said: "Tara allows me to be me and she doesn't have a problem with that. She treats me like a normal human being."

But though he likes being treated as normal, Henry admits he enjoys "luxurious" treats and vacations.

He said: "I tend to treat myself rather luxuriously and I will disappear for two weeks on a private yacht. That is when I truly relax... enjoying the wonderment of being on a private snazzy yacht and getting to swim in the sea every morning."
