Fans of The Bachelorette were shaken up earlier this week, when rumors surfaced claiming Emily Maynard cheated on Jef Holm, but no one was more surprised than Emily Maynard and Jef Holm themselves. Even more surprising is that Jef’s own brother is the one who started the rumor, and Jef Holm is hurt, though not completely surprised by his brother’s behavior.
The Bachelorette‘s Emily Maynard and Jef Holm revealed that the entire “cheating scandal” we read about recently is 100% false, and the couple recently learned who was responsible for giving US Weekly the false information – Jef’s brother, Mike Holm.
Jef Holm revealed that while Mike Holm did vacation with them, he and Emily are hurt that his own brother would start a rumor like this. However, Jef is not completely shocked by this behavior. Jef spoke with People Magazine, where he explained: “If everybody knew the history he (Mike) had with our family, no one would be surprised. I like to give Mike the benefit of the doubt and think he’s changed, but obviously he hasn’t. He has a history of doing hurtful things to the family. He’s been cut off from a lot of family things because he’s so dishonest.”
Jef Holm added that when the cheating story was published on Wednesday, he called his entire family to see if anyone started this gossip, and his brother Mike swore he did not do it. Sounds like some people never change – sad, but true. Jef and Emily are still denying the rumors, and insist that they are as happy as ever.
What do you think of the cheating rumor? Could there be any truth to it? Sure sounds like it is bogus from what Emily and Jef had to say! Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
