Olympic skier and gold medalist Lindsey Vonn and New Jersey Devils defender PK Subban announced Tuesday via Instagram that they had broken off their engagement. The two became engaged in August 2019 when Subban popped the issue. Vonn also suggested Subban, which he did shortly afterwards at Christmas. At the time, she said women are not the only ones to get engagement rings.
The split appears to be amicable when Subban and Vonn posted the same photo on Instagram that contained similar captions.
Here is what Vonn wrote:
“Over the last 3 years, PK and I have had some incredible times together. He is a kind, good man and one that I respect a lot. But after much deliberation, we have decided to move on separately. We will always remain friends and love each other immensely. We ask you to respect our privacy during this time. “
In Subban’s post, he referred to Vonn as “one of the most kind and caring people I know.” Like Vonn, he also wrote that they have “decided to move on separately.”
Subban proposed in 2019 with an emerald ring, Vonn’s birthstone and favorite color. At the time of the engagement, Vonn said she was surprised because they had not discussed it or looked at calling together. She also said they were not in a hurry to get married.
The two started dancing in 2018.
