A photo of Emily Maynard and Jef Holm together has provided The Bachelorette fans with some hope that the adorable couple is getting back together. According to one source close to the situation, however, the split is still very much on.
“Emily and Jeff are definitely over and have absolutely no plans to get back together. They are trying to remain amicable though and he was getting his things ready to pack up and leave North Carolina over the weekend when they were photographed together. Jef will be headed back to Utah in the next several days,” the source said.
The source also provided a clearer explanation of why the relationship didn’t work out. According to the source, “Jef just wasn’t ready to be a dad to Ricki and didn’t realize the commitment that would be required of him by having this little girl in his life.”
While this seems to place the blame of the breakup on Jef Holm, there’s still the speculation that she text cheated on him with a pro athlete. Whatever the real reason for their split, it’s good that they can at least be in each other’s presence and behave like adults. Hopefully, Emily Maynard has learned the lesson that finding love on TV is just not realistic.
