Jennie Garth and Michael Shimbo Officially Split!

Unfortunately, looks like our hunch about Jennie Garth and Michael Shimbo was correct. The two have gone their separate ways, according to an Us Weekly report.

Jennie was previously married to Twilight star Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen in the franchise. The couple, who have three daughters together, split in 2012 after 11 years of marriage with the divorce just recently finalized in June.

Soon after, she began dating Michael Shimbo, CEO of San Francisco media company Planes, Trains and Automobiles. The pair met a couple of months ago through a friend and went public with their relationship in September. Unfortunately, their once social media-heavy love has since fizzled.

We had a bad feeling news like this was coming. Jennie did just stop by talk show Bethenny last month where she told the former Real Housewives of New York cast member, dating after divorce has been “fun and awful all at the same time … It’s like a weird type of torture, but it can be fun.” Her ex Peter has dated 29-year-old Thor actress Jaimie Alexander since November 2012.

Sources cite distance as the main reason Jennie and Michael bid their adieus to one another. “Michael doesn’t live in Los Angeles, so it was difficult to maintain a long-distance relationship,” a source tells Us. As of publishing, Jennie’s rep had no comment.
