Simon Baker has split from his activewear designer girlfriend Laura May Gibbs.  

A spokesperson for The Mentalist actor, 52, confirmed the news on Tuesday, telling Daily Mail Australia that he and Laura, 36, quietly parted ways several months ago. 

While the reason for their split has not been revealed, the star’s management said it was unlikely that Laura’s anti-vaxxer beliefs had anything to do it.

It’s over! Simon Baker, 53, has split from his activewear designer girlfriend Laura May Gibbs, 36. They are pictured together in Byron Bay on February 28

The couple were last pictured together in August, laughing and joking during a trip to the beach in Byron Bay.    

Laura made headlines in October after her activewear brand Nagnata announced on Instagram it would not re-open its Byron Bay store until unvaccinated customers were legally allowed to shop there. 

Posting to its official page at the time, Nagnata uploaded a photo of three models of different ethnicities, alongside a declaration that the brand would ‘reopen when ALL are welcome without fear of judgement’.
