The Bachelor: Vienna Girardi Says She Broke Up With Jake Pavelka Over Intimacy Issues, Gave Back His Engagement Ring

June 28, 2010 09:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


The breakup between The Bachelor‘s Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi is turning into an explosive he said/she said battle in the press. While Jake Pavelka has shared his heartache about the breakup and his “trust issues” with his fiancee to People, Girardi is now telling a very different story to Star. Keep reading for more details on Vienna Girardi’s version of the drama…

No one is all that shocked to see that the relationship between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi didn’t last. It is surprising, however, to see how bitter the split has become. There are allegations of Vienna Girardi cheating on Jake Pavelka (with Greek actor, Gregory Michael), rumors about Vienna being jealous of Jake’s newfound fame, and the supposed “trust issues” and “red flags” that Jake saw in the relationship. Vienna Girardi tells Star magazine a very different story, alleging that she’s the one who instigated the breakup because of intimacy issues and unhappiness.

According to Vienna Girardi, she is the one who ended the relationship with Jake Pavelka last weekend. She packed her bags, moved out of their shared Los Angeles home, and left him a note, along with her $50,000 engagement ring. ”When he gets back, I’ll be gone,” Vienna Girardi told the mag last weekend. She broke up with Jake Pavelka with a note that said, ”Jake – I’m sorry I couldn’t do this in person. I truly do love you, but I can’t live unhappy any longer.”

Vienna Girardi also told the tabloid that she would be leaving behind the engagement ring Jake Pavelka gave her on The Bachelor, replacing it with a promise ring from her father.  ”I’m wearing my father’s ring again,” Vienna Girardi tells Star. “I’ll be leaving the engagement ring on top of the letter when I go. Jake can have it, pawn it, whatever. I won’t be wearing it again.” This doesn’t exactly corroborate with pictures of Vienna Girardi early last week where she was seen wearing the engagement ring.

Vienna Girardi says she and Jake Pavelka were having major intimacy issues in their relationship. ”We haven’t been intimate in months now,” Vienna Girardi claims. “More than four months. At first his excuse was that he was fasting. The second excuse was that he didn’t feel like it. And the third excuse was that he said that he felt that I wouldn’t understand that he wants to wait until marriage, even though I told him I’d support him. Then the last excuse was that we fight so much that I push him away. I was like, really — which excuse is it? I literally have been living six months with this guy who won’t be intimate with me!”

Vienna Girardi adds, ”He kisses me only if we’re on a red carpet or if cameras are there. Besides that, I have to ask for a kiss — and if I do he’ll pucker his lips and just peck me. I’m like, that’s how I kiss my grandmother.”

Jake Pavelka was ticked off when he learned that Vienna Girardi had sold her story to the press. ”What did I ever do to you that you would go down and sell your story to a magazine? Is being famous that important to you?” he says, angrily. ”If you don’t want to be with me, that’s OK. But there’s a very amicable way to split relationships up and she did it the wrong way!”
