Tierra LiCausi – one of The Bachelor's most infamous villains from season 17 with Sean Lowe – continues to deliver the drama in the love department: Her surprise "mystery" engagement has ended, Wetpaint reports.
"It's not a recent split," sources say. "It happened a few months ago."
A lot has happened in the last few months for LiCausi, 24, known for her self-proclaimed "sparkle" and her "Tierra-trums."
After Lowe cut her, LiCausi returned just weeks later to the Women Tell All reunion sporting a huge diamond ring, which she showed off on Instagram, and claiming to be engaged to a mystery man she knew long before The Bachelor.
The end of the engagement won't come as a surprise to AshLee Frazier, 32, a former contestant and LiCausi sparring partner, who alluded in February it was all a hoax anyway.
"If she is [engaged], I wish her all the best, but it may just be a hoax. Who knows? You know how rumors are," Frazier said at the time. "With Tierra, we can't really put too much past her. Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if that was the case."
On the flip side, Lowe, 29, told PEOPLE in August to expect a wedding date soon for him and fiancée Catherine Giudici.
