Drew Carey is back on the singles market! The "Price is Right" host has called off his four year engagement to Nicole Jaracz.

"He and Nicole still have a great deal of love and affection for one another," his rep tells US Weekly. "He will still be very involved with their son's life."

The couple aren't talking about whatever prompted the breakup after years of domestic bliss, but they have a lot of company with some of their fellow stars who never quite made it down the wedding aisle. Here are some of the couple's who broke up after long engagements:

Rachel Weisz: She and her former fiance "Black Swan" producer Darren Aronofsky were the picture of domestication for nearly ten years. After meeting backstage while she was starring in "The Shape of Things" in London in 2005, she soon moved to the States to couple up in New York City. It took four years for him to pop the question, but he would put a ring on her finger in 2005. The wedding plans were put on hold as they awaited the arrival of their son, Henry Chance, in 2006. Years came and years went without a wedding announcement from the duo. Things went sour in November 2010 after the actress met actor Daniel Craig while filming the movie, "Dream House". She and Craig went public with their relationship a month later and were married in June 2011.

Katie Holmes and Chris Klein: They were a couple made in teen stardom heaven. The girl next door from "Dawson's Creek" seemed like a perfect match for the clueless guy from "American Pie" when they started dating in 2000. It took a few years, but he finally popped the question in 2003. Their relationship went awry as young love can in 2005. Only eight weeks later, she took up with that Tom Cruise character and the rest is written in Hollywood history.

Sheryl Crow and Lance Armstrong

: She cheered him on in the Tour de France. She patiently waited for his divorce to be finalized. She posed on the cover of a magazine wearing her wedding dress. Unfortunately, she never got the wedding ring. After two years of high profile dating, she finally got the professional bike racer to pop the question in 2005. Their bliss didn't last long and they called it quits the next year. Just three weeks after the breakup, Crow faced up to something much worse than being left at the alter - breast cancer - and came out on the other side as a true survivor.
