Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik have called time on their nine-month engagement, with Ben confirming with People Magazine on Friday that the two couldn't find a way to manage their relationship and have had to call it quits.

The one-time couple's relationship was chronicled on ABC's hit reality show the bachelor, in which Robertson was chosen from a batch of 25 women to become Mrs Flajnik - with the eligible bachelor proposing atop a mountain on the show's final episode, After the Final Rose.

Flajnik and Robertson originally broke up in February 2012 while season 15 of the show was airing. However, they later reconciled and got engaged for the second time, but broke up again this week seemingly for good.

When Flajnik went to People to confirm the split he didn't let on too much, only admitting "it's true." However, it doesn't seem that Flajnik is moping over the split as he posted an upbeat comment onto Sulia, through a link from his Twitter account on Friday. He wrote: "Welp, another weekend ahead and there is so much going on in San Francisco. I can't even begin to tell you how crazy of a weekend it's going to be."
