Jef Holm's fiance Emily Maynard was accused of cheating on him with Matt Leinart last weekend. Reports claimed that Jef caught her sending explicit text and photo messages to the Raiders quarterback. Now, after his own brother confirmed the story, Jef is speaking out about his disappointment.
"My family all says they are shocked, and obviously I'm shocked," Jef tells PEOPLE exclusively about his brother, who had been vacationing with the couple in South Carolina during the weekend at question. "But if everybody knew the history he had with our family, no one would be surprised."
Jef and Emily had both stated the report was 100% not true, but that was prior to his brother's confirmation. Since the report, the two have been spotted together, looking happy, despite the report which claimed Emily had left him in S.C.
Jef adds, "He's been cut off from a lot of family things because he's so dishonest." It looks like his brother was just trying to score some publicity, or possibly a check.
Either way, time will tell if Jef Holm and Emily Maynard, who met on The Bachelorette, can beat the reality show curse. As of now, they seem to be doing just fine.
