Eleven days was long enough for Talan Torriero who
realized he could do better ended his brief engagement to Kimberly Stewart over the weekend.
Rod Stewart's 26-year-old socialite daughter said it was "too soon" to make such a serious commitment after less than two months of dating, although a mouthpiece for Kimberly was more truthful, admitting that, "They've began dating a relatively short period of time ... it would be in the category of weeks as opposed to months."
The 19-year-old Laguna Beach star got engaged to Kimberly on November 16 after presenting her with a five-carat, $300,000 Neil Lane ring, after they began dating in October.
The couple released a joint statement yesterday, saying, "It was just too soon to enter into a lifelong commitment. It is better to have a brief engagement than a short marriage. The couple continue to share their time together and remain open to whatever the future may hold."
This was the second engagement for Kimberly this year, who broke up with musician Cisco Adler in May. Cisco, the lead singer for Whitestarr, is currently engaged to Mischa Barton, who he's been dating for a couple months after she broke off her engagement to boy billionaire Brandon Davis, who is now with Nicky Hilton, although no engagement has been announced on that last one.
