I'm single again, Roz admits on Facebook

TOP model Rozanna Purcell has put an end to weeks of speculation about her love life by changing her Facebook status to single.

The Diary can reveal how the reigning Miss Universe Ireland and her former beau Jamie Hunt have gone their separate ways after she was urged to move to New York by billionaire businessman Donald Trump.

The pair had been dating for over six months after meeting while studying at UCD, but Roz (20) who revealed she was uncertain at the prospect of embarking on a long-distance relationship, has now decided to go it alone as she begins her new life in the Big Apple.

Roz began a year-long contract with Trump Model Management last week, after Donald himself urged her to leave Irish shores a month early and move into the exclusive Trump Model Apartments alongside a handful of other models.

"Roz and Jamie discussed the possibility of staying together and trying to make it work but it would be almost impossible," said a close pal of the model.

"They're leading very different lives at the moment and she feels her main focus has to be her modelling career now that it's taken off so well.

"They parted on good terms and will stay in touch but she's definitely single now."

Before arriving to New York at the weekend, Roz jetted to Canada to attend the exclusive In Style magazine bash at the Toronto Film Festival.

The in-demand beauty queen will also be a guest judge at the Miss Venezuela pageant over the coming weeks.
