Rick Fox and his girlfriend, actress Eliza Dushku have decided to throw in the towel after nearly five years of dating. It’s unclear if their split was amicable, but the “Bring It On” actress recently revealed that they decided to go their separate ways due to their conflicting desires to live on opposite coasts.
“Rick’s an LA guy and I’m a Boston girl,” the 33-year-old told The Boston Globe.
Apparently, Eliza could no longer tolerate the Los Angeles lifestyle. After leaving Rick, she decided to purchase a condo near her hometown in Massachusetts.
“Nobody in LA has a basement,” she said. “They all have the obligatory storage spaces in the Valley.”
As it turns out, basement-less houses aren’t the only thing that Eliza won’t miss about Los Angeles. She says she could do without the “emotionally cold” residents as well.
“I’d rather be a little physically cold here than emotionally cold in LA,” she said. “I missed my town and I missed my family.”
We’re not really sure if Eliza considers Rick to be one of those “emotionally cold” LA folks, but something seems especially cold about their breakup. Rick also confirmed their split this week during an appearance on “The View.”
“I’m single,” the “Hit The Floor” actor told Sherri Shepherd.
Rick vaguely spoke about marriage during his relationship with Eliza, but it’s unclear whether or not he ever had solid intentions of actually marrying her.
“You don’t go 20 months…without talking about marriage,” Rick told E! Online back in 2010. “I’ve been married before, so we definitely talk about the truth of what marriage is about. I’m not gunshy about marriage, even though I failed. I failed at it the first time, so my next opportunity will be one where I’ll be honestly more experienced and intelligent about it.”
Well, that’s that I suppose.
