The actor began dating Grace in January, though the couple wasn’t spotted out together until April. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, Grace shacked up with Beckinsale in her Los Angeles, California, home.
In June, the couple publicly declared their love for each other via Instagram comments. When Grace posted a photo to the social media site to celebrate his birthday, Beckinsale commented with some sweet words.
“Happy birthday I love you,” she wrote.
“I love you,” he replied.
Now, the loved up pair have gone their separate ways, according to the source, with Grace returning to his native Canada. Beckinsale unfollowed her former beau on Instagram and deleted a gushing birthday tribute she posted to the social media platform in June. However, it appears that Grace is still following his ex-girlfriend on social media.
Following the split, Beckinsale hit back at a troll on Instagram who told her she “needs a man,” The Daily Mail reported. In her reply, the actor refuted this statement and said it was really a question of whether a person “want one, or not.”
As The Sun reported, Beckinsale’s love life has been relatively turbulent since she split from her husband Len Wiseman, 47, in 2015, ending their 11-year marriage.
In November 2018, the newspaper published snaps of her making out with British comedian Jack Whitehall, 32, at a London karaoke bar, before the pair headed off to a hotel together. A few months later, in January 2019, Beckinsale turned heads when she began dating Ariana Grande’s ex-fiance, Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson, 26. That short-lived fling ended in April 2019.
The publication noted that Beckinsale recently clapped back at those who judge women for dating younger men and revealed that this type of criticism “can make you feel kind of ugh for a minute.”
“If you’re strangling a squirrel or hurting someone, I get it, but living one’s life in a reasonably respectful manner shouldn’t invite anyone to get too excited,” she said. “It can feel like a little bit of a political act to be a woman over 32 who’s having any fun at all.”
Beckinsale highlighted the double standards in how men and women are judged as they age, saying that men can do “whatever they like,” while women are constantly questioned about their parenting decisions or judged for the number of relationships they’ve had.
