Brad Womack and Emily Maynard have broken up, at least according to various reports. The Bachelor stars have not confirmed this on the record.
If we had to guess, they've likely refrained from commenting not because they are worried about the integrity of the show, as some have laughably speculated, but because they truly don't know if the breakup is for good.
After all, the split wasn't even their first.
According to Us, however, it doesn't look good: "Brad and Emily broke up, and Brad keeps drunk-dialing her," says an insider. "Brad is such a loser!"
Another source says their relationship "ended two weeks ago," after Emily Maynard flew to Texas to smooth things over with the Austin-based bar owner.
Single mom Emily was the one who ended things, a third insider reveals. The reason? Their long-distance relationship was too much for her to bear.
"Emily is happy in Charlotte [North Carolina] and is not moving to Austin with [her 5-year-old daughter] Ricki," the insider dishes. "She is content."
Still, another friend of the couple insists otherwise.
"They are still very much together and engaged," the friend says. "They are on and off, but there is a lot of love there. This is just a rough patch."
What do you think? Will they last?
