Singer/songwriter Jason Mraz has called off his engagement to fiancee Tristan Prettyman, reports Canoe Jam.
Mraz proposed to Prettyman just last December, but the couple has now split due to Mraz’s heavy workload.
The couple was waiting to walk down the aisle until gay marriage is legalized in the U.S., but now Mraz confirms that the engagement is off.
Telling The Daily Beast, Mraz says, “My greatest mistake right now is, I’ve been clinging to my art. In that, I have victory for my art and a great loss for my heart. At the moment, my beautiful fiancee is no longer my beautiful fiancee.”
“Two halves don’t make a whole. Two wholes make a whole. In my relationship, I was giving myself away to make the relationship better, but in actuality, wasn’t doing better by doing that. I became less of a man.”
He insists the two are still friends, though, and hang out together all the time.
“We are still super friends, we go to yoga together, we surf together. We acknowledge the journey that each of us is on. We certainly want each of us to feel whole and complete. And it’s when you’re whole and complete that that attraction exists and it really thrives.”
Mraz makes plenty of women swoon over his lyrics and music, so I’m sure he will find someone in no time. Maybe he should take a break and reconnect with his old flame.
