‘The Bachelorette’: Jef Holm’s brother chimes in on Emily Maynard rumors

Mrs. Carter: The plot thickens…

Was Emily Maynard unfaithful to Jef Holm during a recent family outing? This has quickly turned into the story of the week — and while it was starting to look yesterday like the allegations were 100% false, some new information coming out from one of Jef’s family members puts the situation a little bit more in doubt.

The story is that Jef found out that the former “Bachelorette” was sending explicit text messages and photos to another man, and speaking to Us Weekly (who first reported the story), Jef’s brother Mike Holm confirmed that there was some sort of incident:

“I can tell you that it’s all 100% true. I was there and I heard the fight and watched the whole thing go down, Emily leaving and everything … I love my brother very much and, like the rest of our family, I just want him to be happy.”

The fact that Mike commented on this is something that Jef is almost surely to not appreciate, as if there was some sort of issue between himself and Emily, he would have probably preferred to keep it private. Why would he say something like this if it is not true? One motivation motivation we could think of is that he wants Emily and his brother to break up — but even then, Mike tells the magazine that he hopes the two stay together and work through whatever issue they are having. The only other explanation is that money is somehow involved.

At the end of the day, the fact that Emily and Jef are still tweeting about how much they love each other makes us believe that most of this story is either bogus or blown way out of proportion. Couldn’t it be possible that, if there were texts, they were from a past relationship and Emily had never gotten around to deleting them? Considering what Emily went through to find her Mr. Right, it seems unrealistic that she would throw it away so quickly.
