Kristi Gibson is a Canada-born celebrity who has appeared in movies and television shows such as A Letter from Death Row, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It, and The Untold Story.
She came to prominence after her relationship began with the frontman of the rock band Poison, Bret Michaels. She was also engaged to the singer-songwriter, her partner of over 18 years.
Gibson and Michaels' Relationship
Kristi and Michaels met each other for the first time in 1994, and they wasted no time hitting it off. Two years after seeing each other, they officially began their relationship.
Their relationship took a big turn when they decided to welcome their first child together in 2000. They gave birth to a daughter named Raine Elizabeth on May 20, 2000. Later, on May 5, 2005, they welcomed their second daughter Jorja Bleu into their family.
Kristi also played a vital role in Michaels' life when he was hospitalized for a case of a brain hemorrhage in early 2010. He recovered by the end of the year after multiple surgeries.
Later that year, the two finally got engaged when Michaels got down on one knee to propose to her during the finale of the VH1 reality show Bret Michaels: Life as I Know It.
The 'Riding Against The Wind' singer proposed to his then-long-time partner, Kristi, saying, "I bought you that ring, not to be a friendship with benefits...we've had that for a while."
"Please say yes or the rejection will kill me right now," Michaels begged until she happily accepted his proposal.
Called off the Engagement after Two Years
After 18 years of relationship [and two years as engaged partners], Gibson and Michaels mutually called off their engagement.
The 58-year-old singer's reporter confirmed the split to Us Weekly in July 2013, stating that the pair would continue to be good friends and raise their daughters together. The statement read:
Although the couple has separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters, Raine Elizabeth and Jorja Bleu.
Keeping their words, the former couple is still friends with each other and gave a good upbringing to their daughters. Kristi and Michaels are also occasionally seen posting pictures with each other on social media.
In one instance, on March 15, 2020, Kristi posted a picture with her former partner on Instagram on his birthday. She wished him, writing, "Happy Birthday Bret!"
Both Kristi and Michaels are reportedly single now and aren't married to anyone yet.
Daughter Raine Debuted as Model in 2018
Gibson's daughter, Raine, broke into the modeling industry in July 2018 as she made a stunning debut as a model. The gorgeous diva was chosen out of over 25 thousand women to walk on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit's Paraiso runway at the annual fashion festival.
Raine currently has over 100 thousand followers on Instagram and is seen as a talented swimsuit model.
Gibson Reportedly Boasts a Huge Net Worth
Kristi is not very open about her personal life that includes her wealth, too. However, she reportedly has a net worth of $15 million, including her home, assets, and properties.
A lot of credit of her net worth also has to go to her former partner Michaels, who supported her financially as well. The singer himself has a net worth of $16 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
