Gerard Butler and girlfriend split after 'make or break' trip - report

Gerard Butler reportedly told his friends he "just couldn't commit" to girlfriend Morgan Brown.

Gerard Butler and girlfriend Morgan Brown have reportedly called time on their romance for a second time.

The Scottish actor and Morgan, the daughter of late real estate developer Harry Joe Brown, Jr., dated on and off for two years until November (16), when they were said to have split. However, they sparked rumours of a reconciliation in June when they were seen jetting off to Tulum, Mexico together.

But now it has been reported that the trip was actually a "make or break" last ditch attempt to fix their romance - which resulted in the pair ending their relationship once and for all.

According to Britain's The Sun newspaper, it was 300 star Gerard's inability to commit which led to their eventual split, with a source telling the publication: "Gerry just isn’t ready to settle down. He thought Morgan might have been the right person at the right time but it wasn’t to be.

“He’s told his friends he just couldn’t commit. Gerry loves Morgan but it wasn’t working. He has been away filming and he thought it would be better if they went their separate ways. They went away to Mexico to see if it would work out but they both saw it would be best they moved on.

"Some of Gerry’s friends have given up on thinking he would ever settle down. He is having too much fun.”

Gerard has previously been romantically linked to stars including Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Biel, both of whom are now happily married, to Justin Theroux and Justin Timberlake respectively.

However, his extremely busy schedule over the next few months means it's unlikely Gerard will have time to worry about his single status. Among the six projects Gerard has in the pipeline are Angel Has Fallen with Morgan Freeman, Hunter Killer with Gary Oldman and animated sequel How To Train Your Dragon 3.
