Petra Nemcova, Jamie Belman Split: Model & Actor End Their Engagement (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

There will be no more wedding bells for swimsuit model Petra Nemcova and her British beau Jamie Belman, who called off their engagment. Sniffle!

A spokesman for Next Models confirmed to Vogue UK that the couple had split.

The Czech-born Nemcova and Belman, a British actor, dated for eight months before getting engaged in January of 2011. In August 2011, Nemcova told Telegraph that she was planning a huge wedding for June 2012, including a Marchesa wedding dress.

Nemcova has enjoyed a lengthy career. A model scout noticed her on the streets of Prague in 1995; by 2003, she was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Now 32, she also famously survived the 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka. Her then-fiance, Simon Atlee, was killed in the natural disaster.

The model has also appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" and founded a charity, the Happy Hearts fund. Belman is best known for his role on the British drama "Missing."

We're so sad about this split! Check out some photos of the couple in happier times below.
