Poison frontman and “Celebrity Apprentice” winner Bret Michaels has split from his longtime girlfriend.
The singer, who proposed to Gibson on “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It” in late 2010, has called off their engagement after 18 years together.
Michaels’ publicist, Joanna Mignano, confirmed in a statement that the couple had gone their separate ways.
“Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters,” his rep said today.
Bret, 49, and Kristi, 41, have two daughters together, Raine, 12, and Jorja, 7.
Michaels wrote on his website, “With all that Kristi, Raine, Jorja and I are going through, no doubt this is a very difficult time for all of us. I want all of you to know that Kristi and I remain great friends and committed loving parents to our daughters. I am blessed to have someone as great as Kristi in my life in any capacity.”
