Jennifer Love Hewitt Ex Heartbroken
But he was left devastated after he found out Hewitt had given a ring to 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons - the same gift she had bestowed upon him.
Speaking on Howard Stern's radio show, Cronin says, "She gave me a ring. She goes, 'Listen, I want to marry you. We're going to be together forever'. (Then) Jeff goes, 'Hey, you and me have something in common... Jennifer Love Hewitt'. I had always asked her about that. 'Did you ever get with this guy?' (And she was like) 'No, no, no.' So when that happened, I was lost. This was two years ago. It was rough, man."
And Cronin - now a successful songwriter - was dealt another blow by the actress, when he read Us Weekly that she allegedly had been dating a string of men behind his back.
He explains, "She was in New York doing a movie, and I get a phone call from someone at my record company. They go, 'Rich, get Us Weekly. It just came out.' (I'm thinking) maybe there is something cool about me. No, it was a f---ing thing about Jennifer Love Hewitt in New York City... with seven guys. I was on the bed having a panic attack, so I called her up and was like, 'Do you have something to say to me?'. I was the girl in this relationship. And she goes, 'Listen, don't you f---ing call me up like this when I am at work. If you believe that bulls--t, shame on you.' She hung up."
Hewitt recently split from fiance Ross McCall, but they are "working things out", according to the Scottish actor.
