After getting engaged for six months, first openly gay football player Michael Sam and fiancee Vito Camissano will not be getting married after all since the two reportedly broke up just recently.

US Weekly revealed that the couple have called off their engagement based from a revelation of a person close to the two.

"They've been rocky for months," the source said in the US Magazine report about the relationship of the two.

The same report noted that despite Cammisano having a profile photo of him and Sam, the football player has deleted all Instagram photos of them including their proposal picture in Vatican last January.

Meanwhile, TMZ said that the two have not been spotted together for two months even when Sam recently left the Montreal Allouettes.

The site also added that Cammisano has uploaded a new video on his YouTube channel sans the engagement ring from Sam.

"Again, unusual for Vito, who had been sporting the ring EVERYWHERE ... from the Vegas pool scene to hikes at L.A.'s famous Runyun Canyon," TMZ noted.

Sam has become a famous figure in sports as he is the first openly gay player drafted to the NFL. US Magazine said he shared a kiss with Cammisano when he got drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

The two have been dating since 2011 when they were still students at the University of Missouri.

According to Daily Mail, Sam remembers the exact situation when he and Cammisano met — the former was wearing a rabbit costume complete with a tail and was vomiting over a railing from a second-story deck.

"I went up to him to ask if he was OK, and he started cursing at me, screaming, ''F--- off - do you know who I am?' I told him I didn't care who he was. We didn't speak again for two years," Sam explained.

In 2011, the two started dating secretly as Sam was still closeted at the time, Daily Mail added.

"Early on, it was awesome. And then bad things started to happen. When Vito came to my house, he had to sneak through in and out of the window. Vito was getting really tired of that," adding that they broke up after that incident then just got reunited during Christmas.

Now, it seems their four-year relationship has come to an end though it is still unclear what reasons caused it.

Some find it sad that the two have called it quits despite the great victory for the LGBT community, with the recent decision from the Supreme Court to legalise same sex marriage in all states.
