 Michael Bezjian/

Another Bachelor couple bites the dust.

After five years together, Season 6 Bachelor Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado have split, he confirms to

The couple got engaged on the show's November 2004 finale. (He proposed to the Cuban-born star in Spanish so her parents — who were watching — could understand what was happening.)

Velvick, 45, and Delgado first showed signs of a trouble the night after they appeared on a Bachelor reunion episode in November 2007 when she was arrested for assaulting her fiance.

According to authorities, she punched Velvick in the mouth and was under the influence of alcohol when she was arrested.

Shortly after the incident, Velvick maintained that they were still happily together.

"Just because you met on a reality show, got engaged on this beautiful incredible setting doesn't mean that we're Prince Charming or Beautiful Princess," he had said. "It's nothing like that. It's just a real couple going through real things."
