Rod Stewart's daughter calls off engagement with actor

Kimberly Stewart and "Laguna Beach" star Talan Torriero say their wedding plans are off.

"It was just too soon to enter into a lifelong commitment," their representatives said in a joint statement. "It is better to have a brief engagement than a short marriage. The couple continue to share their time together and remain open to whatever the future may hold."

Stewart, the 26-year-old daughter of singer Rod Stewart, and Torriero, a 19-year-old star of the MTV reality show, announced their engagement earlier this month.

Stewart's representative, Elliot Mintz, said they "remain friends."

Mintz said they began dating "a relatively short period of time" ago. "It would be in the category of weeks as opposed to months," he said.
