Actor Tamzin Outhwaite seems to be 'brutally broken' as cheating ex-husband Tom Ellis gets ready for remarriage

Actor Tamzin Outhwaite shared an emotional post about being "brutally broken" on Wednesday, May 22, as her cheating ex-husband Tom Ellis gets ready for remarriage. The 48-year-old 'EastEnders' star got separated from the 40-year-old 'Lucifer' actor in 2014 after he conceded being unfaithful to her.

Ellis is presently engaged to 33-year-old screenwriter Meaghan Oppenheimer, with the couple as of late celebrating their wedding shower as part of their pre-marriage ceremony. The emotional Instagram post shared by the actress read, "If you have been brutally broken but still have the courage to be gentle to other living beings, then you're a badass with a heart of an angel," featuring a photo of Keanu Reeves.


Outhwaite, who is currently in a relationship with 27-year-old Tom Child, uploaded the post with the caption, "Amen". Ellis and Oppenheimer have been together since 2016, two years after his separation from Outhwaite, with whom he shares girls 10-year-old Marnie and six-year-old Florence.

He additionally has a 13-year-old daughter named Nora from a past relationship. Outhwaite's marriage to Ellis was said to have ended after he admitted to having an affair with Australian actress Emilie de Ravin, best known for playing Claire Littleton in 'Lost', while they worked together on US TV show 'Once Upon A Time' in 2013.

"Tamzin couldn't believe Tom's betrayal and was distraught," a source revealed to The Sun back in 2016. "She was excited for him to go over to America and ­further his career off the back of Miranda while she raised their two daughters and this is how he repaid her."

Outhwaite and Ellis met in 2005, married in 2006, and were together for nine years before getting divorced. She revealed to Essentials magazine in 2015, "I wouldn't, not be with my husband over a one-night stand is all I'll say" — hinting that their split was the result of more than just a single mistake.


The actress likewise stated she would not like to uncover the exact subtleties of their inconveniences because of a paranoid fear of hurting their children in the process. She included, "I will tell them exactly what happened and it will come from me. He's still their dad and they still have a relationship." 

Ellis has since become famous in the US, playing the devil incarnate in the TV show 'Lucifer', presently in its fourth season. His bride-to-be Oppenheimer is the maker of Facebook Watch comedy 'Queen America', which features Catherine Zeta-Jones alongside Ellis as a recurring character. She also wrote the 2015 Zac Efron film 'We Are Your Friends'.
