Carmen Electra Splits From Rob Patterson

May 10th, 2012 8:02am EDT

Carmen Electra Model/actress Carmen Electra and rocker Rob Patterson have called off their engagement.

The couple announced plans to wed in 2008, but Electra has since ended her relationship with the Filter musician, although they remain close and are still living in the same house.

A source tells Life & Style magazine, "It's off. She hasn't been wearing her ring for a while, but they're good friends and it's been really hard for them to fully separate."

News of the split emerges a day after the beauty was unveiled as a celebrity contestant on the new TV dating show The Choice.

The insider adds, "Carmen's really nervous about getting back into the dating pool, so keeping Rob around makes her feel less anxious about being single. It's not like they'll get back together. The romance part is dead. They're done."

Electra was previously married to former basketball star Dennis Rodman and Jane's Addiction rocker Dave Navarro.
