The time has come to grab some Doritos — things are getting real over at Team Jem Headquarters.

In case you missed it, Us Weekly just broke a jaw-dropping story about Jef Holm and Emily Maynard's unusual relationship, which claims that Em is paying Jef half her Bachelorette salary to stay with her in the wake of this summer's sexting scandal. Gasp! Meanwhile, Jef is reportedly hanging with his ex-girlfriend, Kaylee Shepherd — who gave an exclusive interview to Us. 

We know, we know — tears. Now, keep in mind that Kaylee could be looking for celebrity (like Jef's brother, Mike Holm), but according to Bachelorette spoiler guru, Reality Steve, most of her story checks out. How does he know? Because Kaylee went to him first!

Steve says that Kaylee contacted him six months ago to dish about Jef, and he is ready and willing to share their 36 emails. "You can see what she was writing me back in April about everything and form your own opinions from there," Steve writes on his blog. "I’m not even here to take sides on this. I don’t even necessarily believe everything she told US Weekly. But I do believe some of it. I’ll let you decide on what you think when you read our email conversations from back in April spanning through July."

We're going to go ahead and hold out hope that some (if not all) of Kaylee's sordid tale is false, but we're interested to see Steve's intel — how well does this girl actually know Jef?
