Bachelor Jake Pavelka is denying an alleged ex's claim that he cheated on fiancee Vienna Girardi.

A woman claiming to be one of Pavelka's exes recently said on Island 106's That Guy Kramer radio show in Panama City, Fla., that Pavelka, 32, left his relationship with her "on hold" when he went off to film The Bachelor.

The woman — who is keeping her identity a secret — said that he began calling her last November after finishing the hit ABC show, telling her that he still loved her and was forced to propose to Girardi, 23.

She said she is speaking out now because Pavelka is she feels he lied to her and "his actions are a complete 180 of that person that he is claiming to be."

But in a statement to Entertainment Tonight, Pavelka insists the relationship with the woman "was prior to The Bachelor" and "simply did not work out.

"There was no overlap with that or any other relationship during the show," he continued. "It is unfortunate that people such as this are trying to financially capitalize on or disparage my incredible relationship with Vienna. I only wish everyone could be as happy for us as we are happy together."
