Despite ongoing questions regarding the status of Emily Maynard and Brad Womack's relationship (or lack there of), the answer is now clear ... and bleak.
While previous reports of Emily and Brad's breakup may've been premature, it doesn't look like this one is. She reportedly gave back her engagement ring.
Maynard was seen running errands in Charlotte, N.C., sans the rock Brad presented to her on The Bachelor finale. An insider says ABC got the ring back.
Sources claim that the couple's strained, long-distance relationship was just too hard to continue, with a source says "It's completely over now."
Maynard is reported to have initiated the breakup, which happened about two weeks ago after Brad's failed attempt to save their relationship.
Then there was the whole drunk-dialing incident.
"Emily is happy in Charlotte [North Carolina] and is not moving to Austin with [her 5-year-old daughter] Ricki," a source said. "She is content."
The breakup comes as no surprise to those keeping tabs on the reality couple. Trouble has been brewing basically ever since they got engaged.
The torch is passed to you, Ashley Hebert. Hope your starring turn, which began on Monday's Bachelorette premiere, works out better than Brad's.
