Geri Halliwell's dream engagement is over as quickly as it began. The former Spice Girl has called off her relationship with Fabrizio Politi less than three months after the couple announced their plans to wed.
The Italian tycoon, who runs a luxury yacht building company in Pisa, proposed to the singer over Christmas with a £220,000 ring just weeks after they met in a nightclub in December.
During the fast-paced romance, Fabrizio, 34, was quickly introduced to her daughter Bluebell, 2, who he was pictured carrying on several occasions.
But the couple's love affair came to an abrupt halt after Geri reportedly woke up last week and realised she 'wasn't the marrying type'.
A source told The Sun: 'She loved being in a relationship but decided that all she needs is her daughter Bluebell to keep her happy. 'Fabrizio is upset but totally respects Geri's wishes.
'Her friends are not surprised - Geri has a track record for getting cold feet.'
Last year Geri admitted she struggled to maintain a longterm relationship.
She said: 'I can be fickle. One minute I think somebody is the love of my life, the next I don't. I have commitment issues.'
Since splitting from her daughter's father American screen writer Sacha Gervasi, Geri has had a series of short relationships, but was yet to find Mr Right.
Her most serious was her six month relationship with American dancer Ivan 'Flipz' Velez, who she met on the Spice Girls reunion tour. The pair enjoyed a transatlantic romance, visiting each other in Los Angeles and London.
After splitting with Velez in November, Geri was romantically linked to London nightclub owner Nick House.
She has previously been linked to Little Britain star David Walliams and singer Robbie Williams.
