REPORTJodie Sweetin Calls Cops When Ex-Fiancé Threatens to Commit Suicide Following Breakup
Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin can’t seem to catch a break these days.
The 35-year-old’s rep confirmed to People magazine on Friday, March 24, that she and fiancé Justin Hodak called off their year-long engagement.
“We can confirm that actress Jodie Sweetin and her fiancé Justin Hodak have ended their relationship,” the rep said. “She appreciates everyone’s understanding for their need for privacy at this time.”

Shortly after news broke, a report claimed the actress called 911 after her ex stormed out and threatened to kill himself in the aftermath of their breakup.
According to TMZ, Jodie called the cops, insisting that Justin was out of control and suicidal after a fight broke out between the duo. When the cops arrived, she told them that her ex-fiancé had a gun in one of the bedrooms. When the cops seized the gun and looked into Justin’s record, they found that he was a felon, making it illegal for him to have a gun in his possession. Justin eventually returned home, where the cops were waiting to arrest him.
According to E! News, Jodie filed an emergency protective order against Justin, but he violated it when he showed up to her house. The police set bail at $20,000 and he's set to appear in court on April 21, 2017.

The couple first announced their engagement in January 2016 after having been in a relationship for two years. They have no kids together, but Jodie has two daughters from previous marriages: six-year-old Beatrix Carlin Sweetin Coyle, fathered by Jodie’s ex Morty Coyle, and eight-year-old Zoie Laurel May Herpin, fathered by her ex Cody Herpin.
The family-of-four made a public appearance just two weeks ago at the Kids’ Choice Awards, and the famous mom took to Instagram to document the sweet moment.
“What a great time [Justin Hodak] and I had with the girls at the [Nickelodeon] Kids’ Choice Awards last night!!” she wrote in the caption.
The sad breakup comes after a long line of failed relationships for Jodie, who divorced her first husband, Shaun Hoguin, in 2006, her second in 2010, and her third in 2015.
While her personal life continues to experience bumps, the former child star's career is heating up. After Fuller House won several Teen Choice, People’s Choice, and Kids’ Choice Awards, it was renewed by Netflix for a third season, and fans are ecstatic.
