Geri Halliwell Splits from Fiance Fabrizio Politi

What happens when you agree to marry someone you've just met? It’s simple—you eventually head to splitsville.

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell has ended her whirlwind romance with shipping tycoon Fabrizio Politi, just two months after she agreed to marry him.

Halliwell met Politi at a Florence nightclub in December and he proposed to her in his native Italy over Christmas. Yes, just one week later!

It comes as no surprise that Halliwell finally came to her sense and realized she hardly knows the man she's about to marry, and called the whole thing off.

According to a source, Halliwell "woke up one morning last week and decided she just wasn't the marrying type".

"She loved being in a relationship but decided that all she needs is her daughter Bluebell to keep her happy," the source told The Sun.

"Fabrizio is upset but totally respects Geri’s wishes. Her friends are not surprised."

Her "friends" should have been surprised when she agreed to marry him after just one week! Who does that?! She probably hardly remembered how to spell his last name in just one week.

Either way, it's probably for the best that they split now instead of later, the last thing her daughter needs is a temporary Dad.
