By Christopher Rocchio, 10/05/2007
Brett Michaels' Rock of Love romance has reportedly already crumbled.
Jes Rickleff, the 23-year-old cosmetologist from Chicago, IL who Michaels selected as his bachelorette during Rock of Love's finale broadcast on September 30, has already ended her romantic relationship with the former Poison frontman and Nashville Star judge, The New York Postreported Friday.
Rickleff informed Michaels over the phone that their relationship was over when she returned home to Chicago after filming VH1's Flavor of Love-like Rock of Love reality dating series, sources told The Post, adding she's instead fallen for a clothing designer.
Michaels chose Rickleff over Heather Chadwell, a 32-year-old stripper from Las Vegas, NV, at the conclusion of Sunday night's broadcast of Rock of Love's pre-taped finale, and explained his decision in the October 15 issue of Us Weekly.
"Jes was classy, she was cool, but she had a big guard up," Michaels told Us. "Once that guard came down, I really got to know her."
Rickleff told Us Michaels is a "really good guy" with a "very big heart," and added she even considered moving from the Windy City to Los Angeles to live with him.
"The thought has crossed my mind!" she told Us. "I'm not stressing."
The thought came and went, as the two are apparently no longer an item.
VH1 has already renewed Rock of Love for a second season, according to The Post, however it is still unknown whether Michaels will once again serve as the object of affection.
