Flajnik surprised fans by choosing Robertson to be his bride during the Bachelor finale earlier this year. Many of the other woman on the show had expressed their dislike for Robertson, saying that she was playing games and was not genuinely invested in Flajnik's happiness.

The couple called it quits once before after the show went to air.

"It's been a rough ride," Flajnik, 30, told host Chris Harrison on the show's After the Final Rose special. "The woman that I saw on TV isn't the Courtney that I know."

He added, "Those are the moments and the instances that led to Courtney and I not talking for a time while the show aired. We were essentially broken up."

Following the broadcast, Flajnik and Robertson rekindled their romance with a long-distance relationship.

Flajnik did not address the breakup on Twitter, but he doesn't appear to be in mourning.

"Welp, another weekend ahead and there is so much going on in San Francisco," he wrote on Friday. "I can't even begin to tell you how crazy of a weekend it's going to be."
