Aw, well this is a very sad story. Christina Ricci, who announced her engagement to Owen Benjamin in March has now called off the engagement, says a friend of Christina and Owen. We don’t know who broke up with whom just yet but as always, details always seem to get leaked so maybe we’ll be given the scoop. If not, it’s not really any of our business is it? But the two do still seem to be talking and so I suppose the split was at least amicable if not mutual. From US,
“Christina Ricci and Owen Benjamin have called off their engagement, a pal of the couple confirms to Usmagazine.com.
“They remain good friends and are still talking a lot,” the friend tells Us.
Ricci’s rep has no comment.
The duo — who will appear together in the movie All’s Faire in Love — first stepped out as a couple last November.
The 5-foot-1 Ricci had been spotted strolling around with the much-taller comedian — he’s 6-foot-6! — in L.A. for several months.”
Not only do I think it’s quite sad any time that a couple who are so serious about each other and obviously so much in love break up but I was really rooting for these two! Maybe it’s just because I’m a big fan of Christina Ricci or maybe it’s because he towers over her in such an adorable way. Whatever the reason, I’m really hoping for a reunion on this one.
