Bret Michaels and his girlfriend of nearly 18 years — Kristi Gibson — have split. A rep for the singer announced Monday that the longtime couple have broken up.
“Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters Raine Elizabeth and Jorja Bleu,” Michaels’ rep said.
Michaels proposed to Gibson on December 2, 2010 in an episode from his show on VHI, “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.” It was especially romantic since the rock singer had recovered so miraculously from his near-death brain hemorrhage. Prior to that he had an emergency appendectomy in which Gibson stood solidly by his side.
No reason has been given for the Bret Michaels and Kristi Gibson split. The couple have been on-and-off for 18 years, but reports confirm this is their final break up. Fans are curious to know what caused the final split between them since they made it as long as they did and through as much turmoil that was thrown at them.
