Another Bachelor couple splits as Ben and Courtney call it quits

6/13/2014

The Bachelor curse has struck again - reality TV couple Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson have split. Flajnik proposed to Robertson on the season finale of The Bachelor last year (11), but the romance wasn't set to last and the pair has released a joint statement confirming the end of the nine-month relationship. The brief reads: "We have decided to end our romantic relationship. The ups and downs weighed heavily on us both and ultimately we started to grow apart because of the distance, time apart, and our need to focus on our respective careers. "We have nothing but the utmost respect for each other, and both feel this is the right decision. We continue to remain friends and will support each other in future endeavors. Thanks to everyone for your love and support, it's been quite a ride." Fans were hoping Flajnik and Robertson would beat the curse and become man and wife after they set up home together in San Francisco, and she began talking about starting a family with her Bachelor beau. But the living arrangement fell flat at the beginning of 2012 and it appears the romance has now fizzled out as well.
