Every rose might have its thorn, but Bret Michaels no longer has his fiancee: the rocker has called off his engaged to Kristi Gibson.
"Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters," the singer's rep tells People.
Michael and Gibson are the parents of Raine Elizabeth, 12, and Jorja Bleu, 7. They were together for 16 years before Bret popped life's biggest question in December of 2010; the moment was caught on camera for a VH1 documentary.
Gibson has been by Michaels' side through a variety of serious ailments over the last couple years, including an emergency appendectomy, a near-fatal brain hemorrhage and a stroke.
He's on a path to full recovery now, but evidently the same can't be said of this relationship.
