Actress Christina Ricci and comedian Owen Benjamin have called off their engagement just two months after they announced their plans to wed. A source says they ended their relationship on Sunday and another source guarantees they split more than a week ago but continue to be good friends.
“Owen had a birthday party this past Sunday, and everything seemed fine. Sometime after, they got into a fight and decided to reevaluate things. [Then] the engagement was off,” says a source close to the couple.
“They really are still close,” adds another source. “They talk almost every day. It was a very mature decision and they both felt good about it. They’re definitely still friends.”
Christina and Owen havenâ€™t released an official statement yet. The couple met on the set of their movie â€œAll’s Faire in Loveâ€ and officially started dating in October 2008.
