Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ross McCall reportedly split after she demanded a high-profile wedding.
The “Ghost Whisperer” actress, who became engaged to the Scottish actor in November 2007 after nearly two years of dating, was believed to be adamant the pair should sell the rights to their nuptials, but Ross was against the idea.
A source said: “They had a massive fight over the wedding plans. Ross felt he was being exploited by Jennifer because she was planning to sell their wedding pictures to a celebrity magazine.”
The source continued: “And when she told him she even had plans to sell the rights to their bachelor and bachelorette parties, Ross hit the roof!”
Friends of the couple remain hopeful they will give their romance a second chance, although Ross has made it clear he does not want his private life to be played out in public.
The source added: “Friends are hoping they’ll reconcile. Ross didn’t want his relationship played out in the press. Jennifer’s need for media attention put a strain on their relationship and resulted in the split. Being in the limelight wasn’t important to Ross. He valued privacy more than she did.”
