The Bachelorette‘s Jef Holm and Emily Maynard may be busy planning their upcoming wedding, but what fun would that be without a little scandal? As it turns out, the latest one is that Jef’s family practices polygamy! Oh yeah, you’re going to love this one.
The Bachelorette‘s Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have been busy planning their wedding, and have finally put all the cheating rumors to rest, so what better than to start another scandal? That’s exactly what one site is doing, revealing way too much information about Jef Holm’s family. According to In Touch, Jef’s family still, and in the past, practices polygamy, and his own grandfather had 11 wives!
In fact, one of Jef’s relatives spoke to the gossip site, and told them that many of his relatives, including aunts and uncles, are still followers of the FLDS Church, a part of Mormonism that still practices polygamy. The relative went on to reveal that Jeff’s uncle, Rodney Holm was convicted of bigamy in 2003 and his grandfather Carl Holm had 11 wives, and helped establish the FLDS Church after the LDS suspended the practice of polygamy.
Meanwhile, Jef’s father happens to have 63 brothers and sisters. However, Jef’s father left polygamy, and unlike most, he still keeps in touch with his family, as the insider explained: “The Holm’s are the only ones that talk to other families after they leave the polygamy religion.” The good news? That while Jef and the rest of his immediate family are Mormons, they do not believe in polygamy. That’s a sigh of relief for Emily Maynard, huh?
