Superman is single again.
Seven months after Henry Cavill was first photographed with 19-year-old college student Tara King -- whom he reportedly met at London's Mahiki nightclub last fall -- the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" star is back on the market, reports The Sun.
The outrageously buff actor is reportedly the one who did the dumping just as he's preparing to reprise his role as the Man of Steel.
One of Tara's friends told the British newspaper, "Henry and Tara have split -- it is official."
"Henry said the two of them could stay friends and he even invited her to his recent birthday party, which she did go to," added the pal (Henry turned 33 on May 5). "But their relationship is over."
The teenager, who attends Bristol University and has accompanied Henry to various events around the world -- she joined him on the red carpet at the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar party and posed with his family at the "Batman v Superman" premiere in London in March -- is said to be devastated after the British hunk called things off.
"It has been very difficult for Tara, who has been saying he was the love of her life," her friend explained to the newspaper.
Their big age difference aside, the split comes as a bit of a surprise following gushing comments Henry made about Tara in March.
"She protects me and is protective of me when I am having a hard time," he told The Mirror. "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 okay."
"Tara allows me to be me and she doesn't have a problem with that," he added. "She treats me like a normal human being."
Henry, who has yet to comment on the reported breakup, is shooting the "Justice League" movie in Britain this summer and has been busy working out to get back in shape to play Superman, often sharing snapshots of his efforts on Instagram.
He's also been promoting the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust's "The Durrell Challenge 2016," a 13-kilometer road race to be held in his native Jersey in the Channel Islands on May 15.
