Rachel Hunter is begging the media leave her in peace as she struggles to come to terms with her broken engagement.
Rod Stewart’s ex-wife, 39, was due to marry Canadian hockey star Jarret Stoll in California in August, but the 27-year-old reportedly called off the wedding this week, without giving his bride-to-be any explanation.
Hunter’s representative has now confirmed the breakup, and is asking the press to let the model deal with her troubles away from the spotlight.
A statement reads, “The August wedding of Rachel Hunter and Jarret Stoll has been cancelled and the couple have decided to split. We ask you (the media) to respect Rachel and her family’s privacy during this extremely upsetting time.”
