自1999年交往至今的「禪師」Phil Jackson與洛杉磯湖人「公主」Jeanie Buss,28日確定分手,結束17年的愛情長跑。

兩人不只是愛侶關係,2012年聖誕節禪師求婚成功,Buss當時還在Instagram發布鑽戒照片,如今兩人一個是紐約尼克總裁,一個掌管湖人事務,因分身乏術和平分手。

「我們彼此相愛、尊重,我們也一起決定終止婚約關係。」禪師在Twitter表示,「我們都有職業上的義務,遠距離讓我們很難維持感情,這些年我們一起度過很多快樂的日子,希望未來我們依然能互相扶持。」

禪師在1999年接手湖人總教練,正是那時跟Buss陷入愛河,多年來他也被稱為湖人「駙馬爺」,但Buss那同樣身為湖人老闆的哥哥Jim Buss始終沒讓小倆口登基,這三人的詭異關係被認為是湖人衰落的幕後原因。

Buss也在Twitter發表聲明,「我一生摯愛就是洛杉磯湖人,但我也愛Phil,無論以前以後,我沒辦法給予雙方完全的關愛,這對大家來說都是不公平的。」
