The latest allegation is that following a June 23 'closure interview' with Bachelor host Chris Harrison, Girardi has gone into hiding, fearful for her safety.

A source close to Pavelka tells PEOPLE, "That's bull. Jake did not threaten her. Anyone that knows Jake – including Vienna – knows that physically threatening someone is not in his character."

Breaking up is hard to do – especially from 2,100 miles away.

Still, The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka, says he had no choice but to end things long-distance with fiancée Vienna Girardi. The reason? He was struggling to get into character for his role on Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva,, which he was filming in Atlanta while Vienna remained in Los Angeles.
