A source told Us Weekly: "There was no fallout. They just both agreed it wasn't working. They broke up three months ago."

The pair had been dating for three years after meeting at the Olympia International Horse Show in 2009. Whitaker is a professional show jumper.

The actor proposed during his birthday party in May 2011.

"I couldn't believe it when he asked me to marry him," Whitaker said previously to the Belfast Telegraph. "I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy."

Cavill has appeared in series The Tudors and last year's Immortals. He is playing Clark Kent/Superman in the 2013 movie Man of Steel.
