Roses. Chocolates. Red lingerie. Publicist’s statements announcing your split.

Ah yes, the traditional gifts on Valentine’s Day.

In a statement released today, Sean “Puffy” Combs’ publicist confirmed that Puffy and Jennifer Lopez, rumored to have been covering up a split for a while, were indeed in the ex category.

“Mr. Combs confirmed that he and his love Jennifer Lopez have in fact broken up. Mr. Combs is confirming this today as he wanted to put all the rumors surrounding their relationship to rest. At this difficult time we ask that you respect his privacy.”
