One of reality TV’s most iconic couples has called it quits.
Original Jersey Shore castmembers Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, who have been dating on and off for the past five years, but are now opting to go their separate ways for good.
Ronnie, 28, revealed the news of their breakup during a recent interview with People, where he explained that he and Sammi, 27, had simply grown apart.
“We were drifting apart and not really spending any time together,” Magro explained. “I still care about her…She’s a great girl, but we were growing distant. It was for the best.”
The famous duo reportedly split about two months ago and Ronnie also added he’s taking some time off from romance for now.
For her part, Sammi has stayed quiet on the matter, likely preferring to keep her personal live private since leaving the world of reality TV.
