There might be trouble in paradise for Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, as the action star and the Victoria’s Secret model are reportedly taking “a break” from their three-year relationship, according to the Daily Mail.

Sources say their 19-year age difference and “constant” arguing have been taking a toll. “There is no other person involved. They love each other very much and are not making an announcement because they’re still hoping to working things out,” a source says. “But things have not been good; there have been lots of arguments and they both need some space.”

This is a complete turn-around from July when reports surfaced that the two were headed for an engagement. “I hear he’ll propose soon,” a source told Us Weekly. The two have been dating for more than three years. “Their connection is very serious and physical.”

Huntington-Whiteley herself hasn’t seemed bothered by their 19-year age difference. “I’m not interested in hanging out with boys,” she recently said in an interview with the Edit. “I have all the man I need.”
