End of the road for Jenson Button and Jessica Michibata

Friday May 28, 2010

It's all over for Jenson Button and his lingerie model girlfriend Jessica Michibata.

The Formula One ace's spokesperson confirmed the split on Friday – marking the end of the couple's 18-month romance.

Jessica was frequently seen cheering on her man at Grand Prix races around the world, but modelling assignments often kept her away.

And Jenson found it difficult to find the time to visit his girlfriend at her base in Japan.

The pair embarked on a romance after meeting in a bar in Tokyo in 2008, and at one point they both talked about proposals.

But it was not to be. It is thought the pressures of a long distance relationship and their busy schedules finally took their toll on the pair.
