Geri Halliwell is back on the market after dumping her toyboy lover Ivan ‘Flipz’ Velez.
The 36-year-old Spice Girl phoned her dancer boyfriend, 29, three weeks ago to tell him the bad news, which has apparently left him devastated.
The pair met while Geri was on the Spice world tour and began dating in April. They spent most of the summer together in Los Angeles with Geri’s daughter Bluebell.
According to a friend of the pair, Flipz now wants to try and convince his ex to change her mind and get back together.
“She called Flipz when she returned to the UK from LA and confessed that things just weren’t working for her,” the friend told Closer magazine.
“Geri said she’d hoped it would be an amazing love-of-her-life romance, but that the spark just wasn’t there. She couldn’t deal with the distance between them and thought it was best to end it before he got even more hurt.”
