‘The Bachelorette’: Emily Maynard, Jef Holm now take on polygamy rumors

Mrs Carter: This is just getting ridiculous now.

Somehow, the tabloids have managed to make up a rumor that is even more absurd concerning Jef Holm than anything we have seen regarding his relationship with Emily Maynard. How crazy are we getting this time? Let’s just say that his own religion and family are now getting under attack, for no reason whatsoever. We’re not even certain who started the rumor suggesting that Jef’s family has  a history of polygamy even came from, but the former “Bachelorette” star took to his Twitter pretty quickly to discard the talk:

“Now they’re going after my family? My family DOES NOT, has HAS NEVER had any affiliation with polygamy. Ever.”

Really, the source of this rumor likely comes from a bias that many people have against the Mormon religion. Jef is probably used to denying tabloid rumors these days, especially when you look at just what he has gone through, but with the subject matter of this rumor hitting his religious beliefs, it’s no wonder that the reality star is getting fed up. So far, he has been forced to deny talk that Emily cheated on him, that the two are breaking up, and even that she paid him a large sum of money in order to ensure that they stay together and avoid any future embarrassment. In reality, we haven’t seen any signs of trouble in this relationship at all, and the two have proclaimed time and time again that they are happy and are enjoying their lives together. After all, why would Jef relocate to North Carolina otherwise?

Granted, Jef is not the only person from Emily’s season of “The Bachelorette” who is facing the wrath of the tabloids today; after all, we reported earlier that Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Karina Smirnoff have been forced to deny talk that they are dating.

How shocked are you by these rumors?
