Jemily fans, brace yourselves. Bachelorette Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have come forward to People, announcing the end of their engagement, just six months after Jef proposed to Emily in Curacao on Season 8 of The Bachelorette.

Emily says, "I am sorry to tell you that Jef and I have, indeed, parted ways. It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision.” No doubt it was — with all of America watching their romance, and her 7-year-old daughter Ricki bonding with Jef by the day, this must have been unbearably hard for all three people involved.

For cynics who suggest that The Bachelorette is all TV smoke and mirrors, Jef wants to set the record straight: “What we shared was completely genuine and real and it breaks my heart but we have decided to break up.”

Last week Reality Steve broke the news that Emily and Jef were “no longer engaged, “ then Wetpaint Entertainment confirmed it days later.
