Former Miss USA and Rhode Island native Olivia Culpo has split from singer Nick Jonas according to the DailyMail.

Culpo, the Cranston native and Bay View Academy grad became a global beauty star in 2012.

“Better after breakup! Olivia Culpo struts her way around town in hard to miss boots as Nick Jonas breaks his silence on split. While no doubt splitting with beau of two years, Nick Jonas, has been tough the beauty queen looked as though she was taking it very well indeed,” reports the DailyMail.

In 2012, Culpo’s Miss USA selection made GoLocal’s list of the biggest stories of the Year. Olivia Culpo was already Rhode Island's sweetheart in June of 2012 when she became Miss USA.

Then in December, in a blaze of media attention worldwide, Culpotook the Miss Universe title in front of more than a billion viewers on television and online. The cello-playing Bay View girl from Cranston went all the way, bringing Rhode Island's love and pride with her.  Veteran newsman Dave Layman's profile of Culpo's days at Bay View Academy went equally stratospheric, as fans loved getting details of Olivia's teen years in her home state. Finally, a slideshow of personal photos of Culpo shared by her family, by Bay View, by fashion designers like Andrea Valentini and by bloggers and other contributors, garnered thousands of views and hundreds of shares, as GoLocal had what the world did not yet have--a personal look at the new Miss Universe.
