Getting a starring role in the upcoming film "Friday the 13th", he reportedly starts seeing his career "could really take off and he doesn't want a wife to hold him back from becoming a major star."
It appears that career is everything for Jared Padalecki now that he has become a household name in Hollywood entertainment industry. The "House of Wax" actor is reported to have ended his engagement to longtime girlfriend Sandra McCoy.
Padalecki confirmed his engagement to McCoy, a dancer and actress, in late March. He provided no further details though.
On him calling off his engagement to McCoy, the Star quoted a source as saying, "Now that Jared is starring in Friday the 13th he's starting to see that his career could really take off and he doesn't want a wife to hold him back from becoming a major star."
The source went on adding, "He's really ambitious and wants to be very successful. He's been telling everyone, 'There's more to life than relationships and I want to be single.'"
McCoy reportedly has already moved out of the Los Angeles home she shared with Padalecki. She "is devastated. She really didn't see it coming," the source revealed further.
