‘Mean Girls’ star Daniel Franzese calls off engagement

Daniel Franzese might want his pink shirt back.
The “Mean Girls” star announced on Tuesday that he and Joseph Bradley Phillips have called off their nearly two-year-long engagement.
“Sometimes shooting stars shine so brightly that they burn out and now we must go separate ways, but I hope my path always crosses with his,” Franzese — who played Damian in the hit movie — wrote on Instagram. “Joseph Bradley Phillips and I have decided to part ways, break our engagement promise and continue on into the future as friends.”
He added that they “cared so much for each other that [they] ignored things that were important to our individual personal growth,” and noted the couple took “some time to heal before letting everyone know” about the split.
A rep for Franzese told us, “The outpouring of love from friends and family has been amazing and he’s very thankful.”
Franzese, 40, proposed to Phillips in 2016 at the Starbucks where they first met. He had a barista call out “Mr. and Mr. Franzese” before he got down on one knee. (Via Page Six)
