Last month, Verne Troyeropens in new window and model Genevieve Gallen announced their engagementopens in new window - but less than three weeks later, it appears they've changed their minds. Looks like it's splitsvilleopens in new window for the unlikely couple.

Certainly the pictures seemed to show a couple in love. At film premieres, Genevieve Gallen was snapped looking every bit as proud as if she had turned up with Brad Pitt.

No matter that Mini Me star Verne Troyer barely reached her kneecaps.

Recently they got engaged, but when the news leaked out last week it was widely seen as a marriage made in Hollywood rather than heaven. After all, Verne - star of the hugely-successful Austin Powers films - is just 32 inches high. And Genevieve is a striking 5ft 9ins in her heels.

Now the Mirror can reveal that, after a tempestuous three-year relationship, the unlikely pair have split. But even though the rest of the world never took it seriously, the 29-year-old model says she can't face life without Verne, 34.

No word on whether or not the bachelor's party at Gringott's was cancelled...
