Garth ‘splits from boyfriend’

Jennie Garth has reportedly broken up with her boyfriend of three months, media executive Michael Shimbo.

The actress and media executive Michael Shimbo began dating last summer, but according to E! News the pair have already decided to call it quits after a disastrous weekend trip.

The website reports Jennie and Michael traveled to Austin, Texas to watch Formula 1’s US Grand Prix.

The pair allegedly got into a fight and ended up coming home earlier than they planned, and decided to break up as a result.

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star and Michael, who is CEO of a video travel channel called PlanesTrains+Automobiles, went public with their romance in August. They were spotted at James Franco’s Comedy Central roast, and also went on a double date with her 90210 co-star Shannon Doherty and photographer Kurt Iswarienko.

Jennie, 41, was previously married to Twilight actor Peter Facinelli. Their divorce was finalised in June.

The mother-of-three recently explained what she looks for in a potential partner, and what her priorities are.

"I look for somebody that shares an energy," Jennie said on Bethenny Frankel’s US talk show last month.

"There is just that connection, that energy that they have—it doesn't matter what the person looks like or what they really do. There has to be that first and foremost, that zing. That thing."
