The Italian model/actress went public with her relationship with the Jackass star in January when they were snapped kissing in Los Angeles, but the couple parted ways in April amid rumours Canalis' party lifestyle was proving too much for recovering addict Steve-o to bear.
Now the stunner has opened up about the unlikely love affair, admitting he is "an open wound".
She tells Italian magazine A, "He was in a fragile state, and I came into his life like a tractor."
Canalis confesses a romantic trip to Italy in February turned into "a nightmare" because "Italy was full of temptations for him".
She adds, "If we went out with my friends, even the fact that a bottle of wine was on the table would be a stress."
But Canalis insists she still has feelings for Steve-o and she would love to reunite with him.
She says, "Steve has a lot of strength and humour. It was one of the most important relationships of my life and it doesn't feel as if it is over yet."
