Poison’s Bret Michaels calls off engagement & wants a biopic

Monday Poison singer Bret Michaels called off his engagement to his girlfriend Kristi Gibson. “Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters,” says the rep.

Michaels, 49, and Gibson, 41, are parents to Raine Elizabeth, 12, and Jorja Bleu, 7.

After 16-plus years together Michaels finally proposed to Gibson on Dec. 2, 2010, with the cameras rolling; the big moment aired on the finale of his VH1 show Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.

On another note,  Bret is planning to make a movie about his life.

The 80’s rocker, who owns a film production company with actor Charlie Sheen, wants to put together a film to tell his story, starting from his childhood in Pittsburgh, Pa., and documenting his rise to fame with his band Poison.

“I want to tell the story,” Michaels told The Columbus Dispatch. “Mostly, when you see rock movies, it has to be this over-the-top thing. I want to give people a Bret Michaels movie where they see that my life is a comedy of errors. I also want to show my fans how to get through the kind of troubles that would leave most people flat on the floor.”
