The Cheetah Girls star accepted a proposal from her boyfriend of six years, music executive Lenny Santiago, and went public with the wedding news in February (15).

However, Bailon, 31, has now confirmed the couple has parted ways, telling, "I am, of course, sad that things didn't go as we planned, but we still remain close friends. Six years is a long time to be together, but we had to make the decision to go with our hearts and not be embarrassed or afraid of change. He absolutely helped make me a better person and I will forever cherish the time we shared together."
