(KP International) Hopefully, eventually, three times will be the charm for Brittany Murphy, whose second engagement, this time to best boy grip Joe Macaluso, recently ended.
Murphy's rep confirmed to People magazine that the pair has "amicably ended their engagement. They remain close friends and wish each other much happiness."
The news comes just days after the 28-year-old actress had been spotted without her engagement ring at the Teen Choice Awards on August 20.
At the time she had evaded questions about her relationship. "Everything is going wonderful, thank you. I'm just living every moment, you know, enjoying my day," she said.
The former couple met on the set of Little Black Book and began dating when Murphy invited Macaluso to see a movie. Rumour has it that the pair didn't share a kiss until 16 dates later!
