As loyal Emily Maynard and Jef Holm fans know, The Bachelorette couple has suffered their fair share of media firestorms over cheating scandals. Last week Jef's ex-girlfriend, Kaylee Shepherd, said she knew all about the fight Emily and Jef in South Carolina. Emily allegedly sex an NFL player. It was even alleged that Jef demanded half of the money his fiancÃ©e made for the show to keep quiet about what he knew. Does this sound like Jef and Emily?
According to a source close to the couple, the rumors are absolutely untrue and "ludicrous." Not only did this insider have some good points to make, but the pair themselves spoke out against the bashing headlines about their romance.
"We just try to laugh about it and not read it," Emily said. "I trust him, he trusts me, and that's really the bottom line. We always make a phone call to our parents and friends and say, 'That's not true," and at this point they're like 'We know.'"
Jef added, "She's my best friend. We hang out together, we have fun. This is better than any relationship I've ever been in."
As for local people who often see Emily and Jef, Maynard herself insists they can all attest to the fact she and her fiancÃ© are solid.
Emily said, "They see us at the grocery store, and Target, and carpool, and they're like, 'OK, this has to be legit.'"
Have Emily Maynard and Jef Holm gotten through the worst of media scrutiny and scandal? Once things simmer down, another report contradicting the couple's happiness emerges again. Despite the negative press, Jef and Emily are united and always smiling.
