Jake Pavelka wanted to leave Hollywood and flee to the sanctuary of his native Texas but ex-fiancée Vienna Girardi refused to go with him, according to a confidante of the broken-hearted bachelor.
“Jake told Vienna that he would move them out of Los Angeles to any place in the country, Dallas, back to Florida, wherever, she just needed to name it and he’d do it,” a friend of the 32-year-old pilot dished to RadarOnline.com.
“He said, ‘Let’s change our numbers, let’s get out of Hollywood and let’s go back to our normal lives.’
“But it was Vienna who said ‘No,’ which is funny, because she’s been talking about how much she hates Los Angeles and how Jake forced her out here.”
Since their wings of love were clipped, Pavelka and Girardi have traded blows about the root of their romance troubles, including the claim that the pilot only pursued the highly public courtship because it was “just for fame.”

Shortly after their split, Girardi told Star Magazine that she and Pavelka hadn’t been intimate for months, a claim that fueled rumors about his sexuality.
However, as another Pavelka friend told RadarOnline.com, it was Girardi's behavior the created his hesitance to sleep with her.
"She would break him down, undermine him, make fun of him, and it really took a toll on him," the source told us this week.
"Every guy knows that when a woman disrespects you to that level, it's hard to make love to her and mean it."
