The bloom is off the rose and only the thorn has left for rocker Bret Michaels and his longtime girlfriend Kristi Gibson.
The Every Rose Has Its Thorn singer and his actress/model fiancee have been together for 18 on-and-off years, but now they are “off” for good, Bret’s publicist, Joanna Mignano, confirms.
Although the pair have had a tumultuous relationship, their love was taken to the next level when the singer proposed to Kristi during reality TV show Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It back in 2010. The viewers of the show got really excited as the big moment aired on the finale of the VH1 reality series.
Gibson stood by Michaels’ side through many serious illnesses over the past years, including an emergency appendectomy, a near-fatal brain hemorrhage and a stroke.
He is feeling well now and is doing great on his path to full recovery, but we cannot tell the same about his relationship with Kristi.
We wish all the best to both of them!
