“The party was good, really nice. Drinks were flowing, good music, a good bunch of people. Essentially we had fun.”

Geri Halliwell Splits From Boyfriend

Geri Halliwell was spotted crying in an LA street on last Sunday afternoon after she split from Jerry O’Connell and was comforted by some girlfriends.

“She finished with him last weekend,” confirmed a close friend.

“Jerry was too much of a fraternity boy. He was a real lad who liked to party. It just wasn’t Geri’s style. She is much more low-key and doesn’t go out to clubs or parties.”

“She took him out to the Electric Cinema restaurant in Portobello Road when they were in London and to San Lorenzo with his parents. Once they were in LA, Jerry was keen on hitting the bars with his mates and just drink and drink and drink and drink. At that point, Geri realized they were very incompatible.”
