Uh Oh, has Bret Michaels been watching too much of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette? It appears the Poison frontman and former Celebrity Apprentice winner is following the normal pattern for those shows – propose on television for the
sake of ratings world to see, and then call it off to the tabloids quietly. Someone say it isn’t so! Unfortunately, it is as we have learned that Bret Michaels has called off his engagement to long time girlfriend, Kristi Gibson. More after the jump!
It’s a sad day for fans of Bret Michaels, who have been pulling for the rocker to get married to Kristi Gibson, ever since he proposed on Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It back in 2010 – the couple have officially called off their engagement. “Bret and Kristi have called off their engagement at this time. Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters,” Bret Michaels’ rep told Life & Style Magazine.
Michaels and Gibson have two daughters, Raine Elizabeth, 12, and Jorja Bleu, 7, and have been together for 16 years. Bret Michaels has always seemed a bit hesitant when it came to the marriage discussion, and he even told People Magazine prior to popping the question: “Love and marriage are the ultimate, but I still get a little sweaty about the marriage thing.” While no more details have been revealed, we can’t help but wonder if Kristi was pushing for a wedding date, and Bret got cold feet? We may never know, but maybe these two will work things out and end up taking a trip down the aisle eventually.
The only we do know is that Kristi Gibson has stuck by Bret Michaels through some very tough times, including an almost fatal brain hemorrhage, a stroke, and an emergency appendectomy. And we can only imagine that life as a rocker’s girl cannot be easy. Our heart is breaking for these two right now.
