It appears that actress Elizabeth Olsen has officially called it quits with her boyfriend of three years, Boyd Holbrook. Although the news broke earlier this year when the pair called off their engagement and the third Olsen sister was seen around without her ring, the details of the split have been shrouded in mystery since January.

Until now that is! After all these months, clearly Holbrook couldn't keep it in any longer. In fact, he is so outraged by the events that he felt the need to break his silence by speaking to 'Man of the World' magazine about the fateful day that Elizabeth waved him goodbye.

According to the Narcos actor, the break-up hit him so hard that it was as if he had been subjected to a catastrophic divorce. Spilling the beans, he revealed:

“On the same day that my best friend died, I got a call from my girl to tell me it was over."

Yep, Elizabeth appears to have cast him off just after he learned that his best friend, photographer David Armstrong, passed away from liver cancer. He was just 60 years old.

"He was a very important figure in my life"

The actor added:

“David was the first person in my life to encourage me. He told me to do everything I wanted to do. No one had ever told me that before. He was a very important figure in my life. Important figure is not even close to what he was."

Understandably, the news of his death spiraled Holbrook into a deep depression, which was further worsened when his fiancée broke up with him. Speaking of the difficult time, he said:

"I was consumed with my own personal depression, my own personal scenario at the time."

Poor Boyd! What a terrible double whammy of bad news! Thankfully though, since then, he has managed to pull himself out of the depression. He admitted that it was a motorcycle trip he took up and down the coast of Chile that really helped him see the light. He explained:

"What happened over the course of the journey was that I started noticing the different types of trees. I started noticing beauty, the details."

We're glad you're feeling better, Boyd!
