Almost a year after model Mia Tyler gushed about her engagement
to guitarist Brian Harrah, the former Celebrity Fit Club
star says that she and her fiancé have split up.
"I am no longer in that relationship," Tyler, 29, writes on her MySpace page
. "A lot of you keep asking me why my profile says single and why I seem sad lately. So, before you read it in some dumb article or online, let me be the first to say it. We broke up about 2 weeks ago."
Tyler's rep Andrew Lear confirms the breakup saying the couple are "no longer together."
Still, there are "no hard feelings" about the end of her relationship with Harrah, writes Tyler. "We are still friends. We are just trying to give each other some space. I will always love him ... This is a hard time for both of us."
Harrah, the guitarist for metal band The Mercy Clinic, asked Tyler's dad, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, for his daughter's hand in marriage last year and proposed with an antique diamond ring. Tyler was previously married to former Papa Roach drummer David Buckner.
In a post script to her online message, Tyler writes about how she is doing in her newly single life. "I thought being alone again was going to suck. I think that is what kept me from breaking up a lot sooner. But I am finding a new sense of freedom and empowerment," she writes. "It sounds corny, but I feel like I can do anything. I don't need to have someone in my life to make me feel complete."
