Woman’s Day (New Zealand)



After returning home from Hollywood in January, Kiwi star Martin Henderson kept his 787,000 Instagram followers up-to-date on much of his managed isolation with his Mexican girlfriend Aisha Mendez – but there’s a crucial update he hasn’t shared.

Sources tell Woman’s Day that the 46-year-old Grey’s Anatomy and Virgin River star has quietly ended his relationsh­ip because “quarantine ended up getting the better of them both”.

Despite claiming their mandated two-week hotel stay was “#relationsh­ipgoals” as they worked out and even baked pavlova together, Martin confessed to close friends in early March that they were over.

“Martin and Aisha’s relationsh­ip seemed strong, but it crumbled while they were in hotel isolation in Auckland,” tells a source. “He was so sad and hasn’t said much about it since.”

Martin has continued to share pics from trips to Great Barrier Island and Abel Tasman National Park, but 20-something Aisha has been mysterious­ly absent from his posts since January 28 and it appears she’s since returned to Mexico.

“His friends think their demise was a combo of only being together a short time before putting themselves through a hotel lockdown, which would be hard enough on anyone, along with the age gap being too wide,” claims our insider. “Neverthele­ss, Martin is so happy to be back in New Zealand, so he’s making the best of things.”
