It's over, and once again, Juan Pablo Galavis is a bachelor.

The love-to-hate former star of "The Bachelor" and his girlfriend Nikki Ferrell have officially called it quits after a tumultuous relationship that saw Juan Pablo, on multiple occasions, refusing to tell her that he loved her.

News of the split has been confirmed by multiple media outlets, but the duo's social media pages were the first hint that there was trouble in reality-TV paradise. On Sunday, Nikki unfollowed Juan Pablo on Twitter and Facebook. He did the same, but later followed her ... and then unfollowed her … and then followed her again ... and then unfollowed her.

On Sunday night, he stopped following her at least twice, only to start following her again. On Monday, he was following her as of 7 a.m., only to stop later on. Nikki, however, hasn't been flip flopping. She even wrote a cryptic message on her Instagram page on Sunday, likely directed at her former man.

"Isn't it pathetic how we waste so much time on certain people and in the end they prove that they weren't even worth a second of it," Ferrell, wrote, alongside the caption: "Nope not one single second."

For those who have followed the couple's relationship, the writing has been on the wall for some time -- beginning with the "After the Final Rose" special when the former soccer pro told Nikki "I like you" after she told him she loved him.

The two later appeared on VH1's "Couples Therapy" where, again, he refused to say the magic words.

"She wants to hear I love you. It's a word issue," he said on the show while his then-girlfriend weeped. "If I say it, I mean it."
