The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub has called off her 21st engagement, according to reports.

According to a report by PEOPLE magazine, the 57-year-old ended her engagement to Oliver Maier, just months after the venture capitalist and Duke of Provence proposed during a trip to St. Barth’s in February.

Their engagement came a week after Staub and Marty Caffrey finalized their divorce in February, ending their nine-month marriage.

Although the reality star and Maier were due to tie the knot back in March, the pair postponed the marriage. A source said Staub didn’t want to rush into marriage and wanted to spend more time with her two daughters Christine, 25, and Jillian, 20 before tying the knot again.

“Danielle wants to spend a little time with her daughters as this happened very fast and caught them off-guard,” the source told Page Six at the time.

While their engagement was off the table temporarily, they were “still very much together,” a source told PEOPLE.

A separate source told the magazine they still spent most of their time together despite postponing the wedding.

“Danielle and Oliver see each other every day and spend most nights together,” the source said. “As they move forward with their relationship, they are trying to be respectful of their families and make them a part of their plans.”

Staub also took to social media to curb rumors that the pair were going through relationship difficulties.

“To put the rumors that he and I are not together [to rest], here I am with my love,” the 57-year-old posted on her Instagram Story in March.

However, this week, she confirmed she had split with Maier, telling Us Weekly that she was “not interested in dating” and only has work husbands.”

“I’m not interested in dating, I’m totally off the market,” she told the outlet.

Her comments came as she posted quotes to her Instagram story over the weekend, which said: “Privacy is power … What people don’t know, they can’t ruin,” and “Confidence is silent, insecurities are loud.”

Speaking to PEOPLE back in February about her then-fiancé, Maier, Staub said she was “madly in love.”

“I’m feeling elated and excited for the next stage of my life. I’m going to marry the man of my possible dreams and hopefully I’ll spend the rest of my life in bliss.”

If it had gone ahead, the wedding would have been Staub’s fourth; she was previously married to Kevin Maher from 1986 to 1987 and Thomas Staub from 1993 to 2007, before her nine-month marriage to Caffrey. Staub and Caffrey filed for divorce after less than four months of marriage.
