jenny mccarthy splits with nfl bf

Chicago Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher hit training camp without any excess baggage after parting ways with his celebrity girlfriend Jenny McCarthy.

The 34-year-old NFLer hooked up with the Playboy model in April but their romance apparently waned over the summer months.

'Love in the Wild' host McCarthy confirmed the split on her Twitter page, "Brian and I have decided to turn our romance into an amazing friendship.  I will continue to be the biggest cheerleader for him. Go, Bears!"

Jenny, soon to be 40, is the July/August Playboy covergirl ... previous covers here.
