Ronnie is no longer Sammi's sweetheart.


People reports that Jersey Shore lovebirds Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola have broken up for what's likely the last time. The mag got the news right from Ronnie.

"We were drifting apart and not really spending any time together," the 28-year-old dude told People on the red carpet of the premiere of Jersey Shore Massacre, Jenni "JWOWW" Farley's new movie.

"I still care about her," he said of his 27-year-old ex. "She's a great girl, but we were growing distant. It was for the best."

Breakups are nothing new for this on-again, off-again couple — as we saw over six seasons of Jersey Shore — but, according to Ronnie, they're really done this time.

He also told People that he's not prepared to start dating again.

The writing may have been on the wall a year ago, when Sammi told an interviewer that she and Ronnie were slowing down their relationship.

Still, given their track history, we wouldn't rule out a rekindling of this relationship at some point down the line!

Do you think that this is truly the end for Ronnie and Sammi? Or do you think they'll make up? Let us know your prognosis in the comments below.
