Brandy Calls Off Engagement to Ryan Press

Spring fever may be alive and well, but not for Brandy. The singer announced the end of her engagement to music executive Ryan Press earlier this week. According to a statement made by Brandy’s representative to Us Weekly, the two decided to take a step back:

“They are no longer together. The engagement is off, but the friendship is still on,” her rep said. “They decided to take a step back and reevaluate the relationship. Brandy is 35 now—that’s what her whole #35 on Twitter is about, becoming her own woman.”

The couple announced their engagement in December 2012. Rumors of a breakup began circling back in February when Brandy attended a few events without her engagement ring.
