Noooo! Sad news day in the VH1 world! We’re incredibly bummed to find out today that our beloved, bandanna’d Bret Michaels has called off his engagement to longtime girlfriend Kristi Lynn Gibson. PEOPLE reports that the pair have called it quits after sixteen years of on-again, off-again romance, with a rep for Michaels explaining “Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters.” The pair got engaged on the finale episode of Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It in 2010. Truly, every rose does have its thorn.
