'Mean Girls' Star Daniel Franzese and Fiancé Call It Quits

The out actor took to Facebook to announce the end of his engagement with Joseph Bradley Phillips.


Daniel Franzese and his fiancé, Joseph Bradley Phillips, officially revealed yesterday on social media that the pair have called off their engagement.

"Sometimes shooting stars shine so brightly that they burn out and now we must go separate ways but I hope my path always crosses with his," Franzese said in an emotional Facebook post.

After more than a year together, Franzese popped the question to Phillips in 2016 at the same North Hollywood Starbucks where they first met.

"Joseph has given me the best of his heart and I’m so happy he said yes," Franzese told PEOPLE at the time of their engagement. "Finding my soulmate has made all the years I struggled with myself worth it."

While this sad news arises, Franzese and Phillips publicly agree that the split is beneficial to the both of them.

"We cared so much for each other that we ignored things that were important to our individual personal growth," Franzese continued. "We have taken some time to heal before letting everyone know and I’m grateful to all my friends and family who have shown us support during this difficult time."
