Granted, it’s another tabloid quoting unnamed “insiders,” but where there’s so much smoke...
One such insider told Life & Style that "Emily told Brad that she can't picture them getting married. Brad's not acting like a fiancé, and she knows that he's not going to change. Emily knows in her heart of hearts that the relationship is finished." (Brad’s determined ex, Laurel Kagay, will love the sound of that.)
The mag has a second insider close to Em confirming the split as well, stating, "Emily was very close to moving with her daughter, Ricki, to Austin, Texas, just weeks ago, but that's not true anymore."
The biggest reported reason for the split includes Emily's fear that Brad was cheating on her. "Brad seemed very complacent all of a sudden," the insider said. "He did everything he could to woo and charm Emily on the show, and then it just slowed. Emily knows he likes Texas, he likes his bars and booze, so she's just wondering if he likes someone else. It started to really worry Emily. She felt like, 'If he's not wanting to see her, who is he with?'"
Life & Style says Emily hasn't announced a split because her contract won't allow her. They claim she got a call on April 13 to remind her of that point, probably because she is still tweeting (although not about Brad anymore) even though Brad deleted his account.
We know fans want us to leave Brad & Em alone so they can work on their relationship, but if that first point is true, ABC execs should know that we’d much prefer the truth over a fake fairytale ending. Just as long as the truth doesn’t look too much like Vienna and Jake circa 2010.
