Earlier this week, Reality Steve reported that Bachelorette couple Emily Maynard and fiancé Jef Holm had split. Now, Wetpaint Entertainment can confirm the same news. A second, separate source tells us the couple ended their relationship within the last few days.
“It just happened,” the source explains. “They’re not together anymore. They’re probably going to announce it soon, they just need to figure out how to do it.”
Since the show’s July finale, the new couple has faced a great deal of drama. In late August, Jef’s brother Mike told Us Weekly that Jef threw Emily out of the Holm family’s vacation house after he reportedly found romantic texts from another man. Then, in September Kaylee Shephard, a former girlfriend of Jef’s, told Us Weekly she and Jef had recently seen each other in Utah and that they had kissed. Reality Steve also revealed a set of emails between himself and Kaylee with similar information.
As Wetpaint Entertainment previously reported, the couple had already come close to splitting once before. This time, it seems to be for real.
“They’re telling people its over,” the source adds. “They were both too unhappy to go on.”
