‘The Bachelorette’ Ali Fedotowsky Splits with Fiance

ABC/MATT KLITSCHER(LOS ANGELES) -- Ali Fedotowsky, star of ABC’s The Bachelorette, has split from her fiancé Roberto Martinez, who she met on the reality show’s sixth season.

The couple fell in love while shooting the 2010 season of the hit series that saw several eligible young men compete for Fedotowsky’s affection.  The season finale culminated in a romantic Tahitian-seaside proposal in which she said she would accept Martinez’s hand in marriage.

But there will be no wedding bells for Fedotowsky and the ex-baseball player from Tampa, Fla., as confirmed by their representative on Monday.

“Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship,” the couple’s rep told People magazine.  “As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy.”

Fedotowsky, 27, had previously appeared as a contestant on season 14 of The Bachelor, where she ultimately walked away from bachelor Jake Pavelka.

So far, The Bachelorette has had a rocky record for lasting relationships, with four of the seven couples calling it quits.

Former 'Bachelorette' Survives Kayaking Accident

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(LA JOLLA, Calif.) -- Ali Fedotowsky's heart can handle pain a whole lot better than her head can.  The former Bachelorette star got five staples in her head after a kayaking accident Sunday in La Jolla, California, reports Us Weekly. The 26-year-old was with fiancé Roberto Martinez when their kayak capsized. 

On her Twitter page Monday, Fedotowsky, who now serves as a correspondent for the Fox-TV affiliate in San Diego, wrote, "Thanks so much everyone for your concern.  Big headache, but managed to hide staples w/hair part and I am back at work this morning."
