BMX bike champ Corey Bohan said he was "hurt and frustrated" over his bitter split with US reality TV star Audrina Patridge.
The extreme Aussie said he had given his all to the on-off relationship.
But a series of "in-the-moment tweets", where he referred to Patridge as "heartless" and "insecure", resulted in the reality star's legal team silencing her former boyfriend from talking about her.
"I can't do or say anything, it's insane," Bohan said.
"In the moment things were heated. It is frustrating but it is what it is and we will go our separate ways.
"We tried three times and it is just not meant to be, it is just how it goes."
The couple met in 2008, split and got back together in mid-2009, with Patridge calling Bohan one of the "nicest, sweetest guys I've ever met".
The laidback, Red Bull-sponsored extreme sportsman took it all in his stride and despite Patridge running to The Hills, one bet is the easy-on-the-eye rider won't find it hard to snag a new lady.
