'Bachelorette' Ali Fedotowsky and Fiance Roberto Martinez Break Up
Former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and fiance Roberto Martinez have called it quits. The couple met on the sixth season of ABC's dating series.
The couple's rep told People magazine, "Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship. As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy."
In August, Fedotowsky postponed their wedding to recover from a late June surgery on a fractured femur. She injured herself kickboxing.
She later said they weren't rushing into marriage, "We didn't meet in the most traditional way. We had a very short courtship and we only knew each other nine weeks before we got engaged. We are still figuring out our lives as individuals."
She hasn't mentioned the split on her Facebook page and was positive in her latest entry on Sunday which reads, "Feeling very thankful for all the beautiful, kind, giving people in my life. Which is fitting since its [sic] the start of Thanksgiving week! Though, I'm super thankful for them each and every day."
Martinez proposed to Fedotowsky in Tahiti on the finale episode of the sixth season. They were together for 18 months and live in San Diego, California.
Fedotowsky previously appeared on The Bachelor during Jake Pavelka's season. Style Network announced in April that she'd also be a co-host on a weekly topical half-hour show along with Adrianne Curry, Vivica A. Fox and Nick Verreos.
