Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba and her fiancé more than a year have called off their engagement, her rep confirmed to Celebuzz.

"They decided early in the summer to break off their engagement and have remained friends," Inaba’s rep told Celebuzz.

Inaba, 44, revealed last year she and Jesse Sloan, 40, met using online dating site eHarmony.com.

What did she say about meeting him online?

"(Jesse) was the one (eHarmony) sent me. It just felt familiar," Inaba told Access Hollywood. "In his picture, I felt like I already knew him. He took a risk because he didn't know what I looked like or anything.

"A few months later, I finally sent a picture. (It was) me in Hawaii with no makeup. We finally went out (on) a supervised date. We went over to my friend's house. It was awesome!" she added.

In March 2011, Sloan proposed to Inaba on Live! With Regis and Kelly.

The 15th season of Dancing with the Stars begins Sept. 24 on ABC.
