"Turning 30 was a time when I thought, 'Wait a second. How much of my life really reflects who I am and who I want to be?'" the Vanity Fair cover girl told The New York Post after their breakup. "I've learned more about myself since leaving that relationship."

"Coming out of an engagement, I don't even try to guess what my life is going to look like in the future anymore," she said at the time, noting that wedding planning was "hard" for her. "The important thing is to not be afraid of making decisions that are right for me. It's my life. Not anybody else's."
