(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.
