Michaels once again lookin’ for a good time
Bret Michaels and longtime girlfriend Kristi Gibson have called off their engagement.
Michaels’ publicist, Joanna Mignano, said in a statement Monday the couple have separated.
Michaels and Gibson have dated on and off for about 18 years. They got engaged in 2010. They have two daughters, Raine Elizabeth and Jorja Bleu.
The statement says Michaels and Gibson will “remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising” their daughters.
Michaels was the vocalist for the band Poison. He also appeared in his own VH1 reality show.
Michaels was treated in 2010 for a brain hemorrhage. Last year he underwent a procedure to close a hole in his heart.

Pitbull tweets thanks to Kodiak
Miami rapper Pitbull can now say he’s safe from bears in Alaska.
Pitbull received bear repellent spray and bear bells, used by hikers to make noise, during an appearance Monday in Kodiak after tweeting he heard the local Wal-Mart sold the spray.
In a marketing deal, Pitbull – whose real name is Armando Christian Perez – agreed to visit the Wal-Mart that got the most likes on its Facebook page. Kodiak was the easy winner.
Pitbull also planned to meet and pose for pictures with fans, but no concert was planned. Kodiak Mayor Pat Branson intended to present him a key to the city with a short rap of her own.
Pitbull tweeted a picture of him holding a child onstage in Kodiak and said, “Thank U Kodiak … I am honored, truly.”
