Jake Pavelka is finally talking about his split from fianceeÂ Vienna Girardi and admits that he was the one who ended things…over the phone! The couple, who met onÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor, called it quits on Monday because of what Jake Pavelka calls “trust issues.” Keep reading for more details on their breakup and what Jake Pavelka’s new acting role had to do with it…
Jake Pavelka andÂ Vienna Girardi have broken off their engagement, just three months after the finale ofÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor. Jake Pavelka opens up to People magazine about his difficult decision to end things. He admits he is the one who instigated the breakup, opting to deliver the news to Vienna Girardi over the phone. The couple had been on opposite sides of the country while Jake Pavelka shot scenes for an upcoming guest appearance on Drop Dead Diva. (Vienna Girardi remained in Los Angeles while he was filming.)
Jake Pavelka says one of the big reasons he chose to end the relationship with Vienna Girardi over the phone, instead of waiting until he was in person, was because of his acting gig.Â ”One of the keys to acting is you have to get out of your head,” Pavelka, 32, tells People. “This [show] didn’t hire me to be Jake, they hired me to play Toby Davlin. I can’t be Jake and sell this character.I’ve been trying to put all that aside so that I can give this character justice. It’s been a struggle thinking about my relationship and going in front of the camera and shooting.”
Ultimately, Jake Pavelka says the relationship ended because of “trust issues” he had withÂ Vienna Girardi. It’s been rumored that she cheated on him over the weekend with Gregory Michael, an actor from Greek. Vienna denied the infidelity rumors on Twitter and Jake never came out and confirmed them. He did say, however, there were “a lot of red flags” in their relationship. Although, it was a harsh thing to do over the phone,Â Jake Pavelka says a breakup was inevitable.Â ”It was a difficult conversation on the phone. But the relationship was headed in that direction,” he says.
Although his quest for love onÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor wasn’t successful, Jake Pavelka hasn’t given up on finding the One.Â ”I’m still the same guy that believes in love,” says Pavelka. “In the end, what I’ve learned is, it doesn’t matter if you love somebody â€“ that doesn’t fill 95 percent of the relationship.”
