Bret Michaels and Kristi Gibson have been on and off for about 18 years, and now they may be off—for good. The pair have split and called off their engagement.
A rep for Michaels released this statement: “Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters Raine Elizabeth and Jorja Bleu.”
Yeah, that’s a nice, classy piece of PR, but you know there has to be more than that to these two finally breaking up after all this time. Did Kristi catch Bret with a “Rock of Love” alumnus or two? Did the almost-50-year-old singer decide he was too young to settle down? I’m sure the real dirt will come out eventually.
This is especially sad because these two have been through so much together, like the two kids and Michaels’ health problems. How can we forget that romantic proposal on his VH1 reality series “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It” back in December of 2010?
At the time, it seemed like almost dying two or three times had made the Poison frontman finally appreciate what he had, but now he’s single again, and no doubt, on the prowl. Maybe he can get another reality series out of being on the market and dating girls young enough to be his daughter. We’ll see.
