The Kill Bill star, 47, became engaged to club promoter Omar 'Slim' White last Christmas (10) after more than a year of dating, but the couple's romance recently came to an end - and White claims he was the one who broke off the relationship.
He tells TooFab.com, ""She's a good woman, it's just one of those situations where in life people outgrow each other.
""I'm highly intelligent, very wise and one thing I hate is negativity and drama; I hate arguing, and I value communication no matter what the problem may be. So, as in any relationship, tension can build up and I finally had to walk away.""
However, White insists the couple's 19-year age difference had nothing to do with the split.
He says, ""I was only in it for love and it just didn't work out. Even though she was older than me the age difference didn't play a part.""
Fox, who has been married once before, had been hoping to settle down with White - she previously revealed the couple was trying for a baby.
