In view of her 2.8 million followers, Maura wrote: "Curtis and I have made the decision to separate. We enjoyed a great experience from our time in the villa and want to thank everyone for supporting our relationship.
"There is no easy way to get through a breakup and no bad feeling on either side.
"We tried to make it work but it wasn't to be and I wish Curtis nothing but the best for the future."
Maura finished off the post with an emoji of a broken heart.
