Well, the actor brought in a beautiful new girlfriend to disappoint thousands of his female followers. His new gf's name was Aisha Mendez, an Instagram model. The couple first started posting about one another in April 2020 as they vacationed in and around Mexico. In May they were in Baja, together and having a swell time in the company of one another.
Their romance was public and evident for all to see and there were thousands of fans who were supportive of the couple's relationship. There were few who commented on the age difference between the two, Martin is getting up there in age and Aisha is a spry young lady. But the negative feedback was only one small group of people who were silenced out by thousands of adoring comments.
Most of the quarantine Martin Henderson spent with his girlfriend Aisha Mendez and the Mexican model posted pictures of the couple celebrating Christmas together. Even after their break up the pictures are still on her Instagram page. After their time in Mexico and the US the couple moved to New Zealand where they had quarantine before being allowed back into the country.
Martin and his girlfriend posted Instagram stories in 2021, showing off their activities while quarantined in a hotel room. While she was busy on the Peloton, the Virgin River actor was getting busy with the food. But soon after their time in New Zealand almost all the pictures of the duo together were gone from their respective Instagram pages. It has left fans wondering the reason behind their break up.
Why Did Martin Henderson and His Girlfriend Aisha Mendez Breakup in 2021?
Martint Henderson and girlfriend Aisha Mendez dated for about a year. They were enjoying sun during the pandemic and even moved to New Zealand together, so it is weird that the couple broke up few months into 2021. One of the reasons being cited is the age difference between the two, people are not calling Martin old, they were just wondering if Aisha was too immature for the relationship.
She has a personality and a distinguished presence on social media. At one point her Instagram account was down for a few days and fans were speculating if all her photos have resulted in the actress getting banned for a couple of days. Maybe all the "negative attention" as the fans were speculating was the reason for the break up.
But what we really think happened is that the two former lovebirds wanted different things from life. Martin is at the age of settling down, getting married and starting a family while Aisha is a whole different personality all together. Sometime it is not just about finding the right person, it is finding them at the right time for both person in the relationship. So, for those thousands of fans Martin Henderson does not have a girlfriend in 2021, anymore.
