We're learning more about this terrible tragedy.
Just as one wedding bell dings, another one cracks.
The two became engaged last year but, citing his music and her acting as more important priorities, never set a wedding date.
It turns out they secretly broke up awhile ago!!
"Brenda and I have decided to go our separate ways… We split up a couple of months ago. We will continue to focus on our careers."
Hopefully he learned a few lessons about actors and musicians making relationships work and he’s willing to pass them on to his younger sis' and his soon-to-be Gale-Hawthrone-in-law.
While this is sad news, there are still tons of good-looking fish in that celebrity pond.
We are SURE Trace and Brenda will find happiness elsewhere!
