Rose full of thorns! Britt Nilsson has split from Brady Toops after nearly six months of dating, Us Weekly can confirm.

A source tells Us that the two called it quits a while ago. A second adds that the two were never serious.

The Bachelor alum and Toops first met earlier this year when Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe vied for the title of Season 11 Bachelorette. A heartbroken Nilsson returned home after the majority of contestants voted for Bristowe, but Toops left the show shortly after to be with the 27-year-old waitress.

"I guess Chris Harrison felt bad about having let me go, so, he gave Brady my [hotel room number]," Nilsson explained to Jimmy Kimmel on May 19. "It is pretty smooth, it's very gentlemanly. I thought it was sweet."

Nilsson and the Nashville singer-songwriter appeared hot and heavy at first, often documenting their kisses via Instagram. (The Bachelorette also gave weekly updates on their relationship.) The reality star — who was a contestant on Chris Soules' Season 19 of The Bachelor — last posted about Toops on May 29. "#teambeanie #fbf," she captioned a pic of the lovebirds.

On July 9, Toops shared a lengthy Top 10 list about what he's learned over the past few months. Some of the more telling tweets included: "Life is hard & we could all use a little more kindness along the way," "My friends are still my friends, and they're awesome and I appreciate them now more than ever," and "I'm not that cool or smooth when talking to girls, especially on TV; I'm just as nervous & awkward as the next dude."

Last but not least, he added at No. 10: "Life is better shared.. and though risky, it's better to have loved than to have never loved at all."
