'Bachelorette' Emily Maynard and Jef Holm Deny Cheating Allegations, Claim Mike Holm is "Dishonest"
It looks like there isn't trouble in paradise, afterall.
Two days after the shocking claims that this season's Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, cheated on Jef Holm (only a month after the season finale aired) and was caught sending "explicit text messages and photos" to another man, the couple have come forward to say the rumors are false.
Jef's brother, Mike, told Us Weekly he heard the couple fighting while the family was on vacation in South Carolina, but Jef says his brother is "dishonest."
"My family all says they are shocked, and obviously I'm shocked," Jef told People. "But if everybody knew the history he had with our family, no one would be surprised."
That being said, Jef says he still loves his brother, but his lying has forced a wedge within the clan on more than one occasion.
"He's been cut off from a lot of family things because he's so dishonest," Jef continued. "I called every single member of my family and asked them if they'd done anything, and he promised me he hadn't."
Meanwhile, Emily swears she's blissful with Jef and has "never been more in love."
"We're so excited about the future and to be back in Charlotte and things are actually happening – looking at places to live and going to school," she said. "I'm happier than I've ever been."
