Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole Split; Nation Weeps, Cries Out, “We’ve Lost Too Much!”

Jayde Nicole will have to find somebody else to get her back the next time she finds herself tangling with Joe Francis.

Capping off a year that was filled with staggering losses in the entertainment industry, Us Magazine reports that the Playboy Playmate has officially called it quits with her Hills hunk beau Brody Jenner, following a whirlwind 15-month relationship.

The two apparently broke up sometime last week; Nicole kinda, sorta-cryptically hinted at the split on her Twitter account on December 18, writing, “‘Sometimes when you truly love someone you have to let them go…..’ I never really understood that quote until now.”

Jayde followed up this reflective moment by going on a Jagermeister binge at the Manor nightclub in Chicago the following night, according to sources:

“She didn’t seem bothered by the recent breakup at all. She spent the entire night downing Jager shots and flirting with all of the guys.”

So what caused this fairytale romance to end? According to a spectator who witnessed Nicole’s Jager-fueled freedom spree at Manor, “She made it sound like it was his doing, saying, ‘He said he needs time to ‘find himself.'”

Did he check between the couch cushions? We find all sorts of stuff there.
