Just six weeks after Sophie Monk shared her engagement news, she’s single again.

The surprise announcement came from Sydney on Sunday. While taping a new episode of Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler asked the Aussie model about her recent engagement to “that old guy,” French businessman Jimmy Esebag, 50. Monk, 31, shook her head, saying, ”I’m newly single.” She even hinted that she might even ”turn Samantha Ronson.”

The news quickly spread from audience members via Twitter.
