Celebrity rocker Bret Michaels has called off his engagement to long-time girlfriend Kristi Gibson. After proposing to Gibson on reality television, the recent news is both disappointing and heartbreaking.
Bret Michaels always seems to be cautious of marriage. In an interview with People magazine, Bret explained his feelings:
Love and marriage are the ultimate, but I still get a little sweaty about the marriage thing.
Michaels and Gibson met in a bar and dated for nearly 20 years. The couple had two children together, (Raine, 12, and Jorja, 7).
Bret Michael’s fans may be disappointed about the broken engagement after Michaels proposed to Gibson on Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It in 2010. Unfortunately, the called off engagement may be more heartbreaking for Kristi Gibson than anything else.
She has stuck by Michael’s side through a brain hemorrhage, stroke, and an emergency appendectomy.
Bret Michaels has a long history of relationships including Pamela Anderson, Jes Rickeleff, Amber Lake, and Taya Parker. Clearly, Michael’s romance on television may work to a certain extent but he simply can’t seem to tie the knot. In the case of the Penthouse playmate, Taya Parker, Michael’s brain injury conflicted with the couple’s marriage plans.
Hopefully, as time unfolds, Bret Michaels may realize what he has in Kristi Gibson.
