Jef Holm says he has no idea why his brother would accuse Emily Maynard of cheating on him and insists, adamantly, that The Bachelorette couple is fine.

Earlier this week, Us broke the "story" that Emily was sexting behind Jef's back, and that their family vacation ended early and tumultuously as a result.

The couple quickly denied the tabloid cover story, only to learn that the source of the report was Jef's brother Mike Holm ... who stood by it a second time.

That has Jef in disbelief - and denying it all over again.

"My family all says they are shocked, and obviously I'm shocked," Jef says of Mike, who vacationed with the Holms, Maynard and her daughter last weekend. But, he adds, if everybody knew the history he had with our family, no one would be surprised."

An emotional Jef Holm and Emily Maynard slammed the story, again.

"This whole story is 100 percent false," he reiterates.

Despite his denials, Jef Holm's recent family vacation ended in tears and heartbreak after he caught Emily Maynard cheating, his brother swears.

The 26-year-old stay-at-home mom and her daughter, Ricki, 7, recently joined Holm's extended family for a beach vacation in South Carolina.

On August 19, Holm was blindsided - according to Us Weekly - when he found explicit texts and photos to and from another man on Emily's phone.

Jef Holm's brother, Mike Holm, insists Us is correct.

"I can tell you that it's all 100% true. I was there and I heard the fight and watched the whole thing go down, Emily leaving and everything," Mike said.

"I love my brother very much and, like the rest of our family, I just want him to be happy. We all love Emily, too. Mistakes happen, we all get that."

"I hope they work it out, but as far as your story goes, it's all true."

Is it though? Emily and Jef have already denied the story, claiming the rumor is 100 percent false, then went on a PDA-filled trip to the grocery store.

Jef denied it again on Twitter two hours ago, writing "It's crazy what people will do, even family members, to see their name in a magazine."

What do you think? Will Emily and Jef last?

Emily Maynard is going on the record to deny a tabloid report that she's cheating on Jef Holm. The Bachelorette star says the rumors are 100% false.

"It's one hundred percent not true," Maynard tells People exclusively of the allegations that she was caught cheating on Jef Holm while on vacation.

According to Us, the couple had a blowout fight while vacationing with Holm's family in Myrtle Beach, S.C., after he found her sexting some dude.

Not the case, the lovebirds say.

  • Emily Maynard Caught Cheating

"It's funny to me," Jef says. "We were in a gated community in a private home with just my brothers and sisters. It's just bogus a 'source' [saying] we were fighting."

"None of that is true."

The celebrity gossip magazine, which claims Holm asked Maynard to pack up and leave, made him scoff. "They must have packed me up, too," says Jef.

The couple, which left Myrtle Beach together, are now back in Charlotte, where Holm says he's looking for his own place near Emily and Ricki.

After dropping off Ricki (now in the first grade) at school, Emily Maynard says that she decided to respond to the rumors because she was stunned.

"I have never been more in love or felt more confident about our relationship," she says. "We're so excited about the future. I'm happier than I've ever been."

Another Bachelorette romance is on thin ice after Emily Maynard was caught cheating on fiance Jef Holm ... according to an unreliable tabloid report.

The celebrity gossip magazine reports that Emily fled a recent vacation in tears after Jef discovered her sending explicit photos and texts to another man.

We're talking seriously dirty stuff here. Allegedly. “There were texts and pictures: 'Let’s do this and that with each other,'" says a source. Yikes.

Emily Maynard Caught Cheating

Not only that, the bad scene allegedly went down at a vacation rental where Jef Holm had taken Emily Maynard to meet his extended family.

“Jef and Emily went into a bedroom and were yelling. He said, ‘You’ve been f**king cheating on me for months!’” a source is quoted as saying.

His final words to her? "'Pack your s**t and get the f**k out.'"

Yeah. If that's true, obviously this is serious and shady on her part, but we have our doubts. Considering the source, it's a dubious claim at best.

If there's any tension between Emily Maynard and Jef, they sure weren't showing it during a lovey-dovey outing in Charlotte, N.C., yesterday.

The Bachelorette couple ran errands in her hometown, and either they were trying to not-so-subtly deny Us' cover story, or they're just that cute.

From the looks of these pics, that was likely bull$h!t ...

It's safe to say that Emily Maynard and Jef Holm are going stronger than ever.

The Bachelorette lovebirds recently celebrated Jef's birthday in New York, looking happy as can be in one of their very first public appearances together.

Jef Holm has been uploading photos galore - and Tweeting about his bride-to-be - constantly since their engagement aired on the season finale in July.

"This was a fun night. #birthday #NYC (sic)," Jef tweeted with the pic below:

Jef and Emily (a.k.a. Jem) recently returned from Ghana, where they visited villages that received wells thanks to Holm's company, People Water.

The duo shared many life-changing experiences on the ABC reality show, but compared to the Ghana trip, that just seems like ... well, reality TV.

Holm is reportedly in the process of relocating to Charlotte to be with Emily Maynard and her daughter, Ricki, 6. He will be getting his own place, for now.

"We're just going to live our lives together and get accustomed, plan a wedding, and when we get married, move in together," he said last month.

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm: Think they'll last?

Emily Maynard and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. GOT. IT. ON.

At least according to a new tabloid report citing intimate knowledge of their Fantasy Suite loving before she accepted Jef Holm's proposal.

The Us Weekly staff, of course, makes stuff up about The Bachelorette like it's their job, so we recommend taking this with a boulder of salt.

That said, here's what they claim went down ...

Arie Luyendyk, Jr. and Emily Maynard

Just days before Jef Holm got down on one knee and proposed on The Bachelorette season finale, Emily was hooking up with runner-up Arie.

Us says that contrary to Emily disavowing overnight dates because she's "a mother and a role model," the two did get intimate on the show.

Naturally, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., was upset to learn he wasn't the recipient of Maynard's final rose - especially after their fantasy suite magic.

"He stormed off," says the source, claiming his full reaction was edited out. "He screamed, 'You just slept with me!' It wasn't shown on TV."

The insider says that Maynard never intended to lead him on and was truly "in love with two people" and torn between Jef Holm and Arie.

By Holm's admission, their romance "started off slowly," while her chemistry with Arie was obvious early ... it couldn't have been an easy call.

Even if she did sleep with Arie, it's unfair to criticize Emily if she truly felt he could be husband material. A guy wouldn't be criticized in the same situation.

But again, remember ... tabloid. Salt. Boulder.

As for Emily and Jef: Will they last?

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm continued their media blitz today, appearing on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM morning radio show and making a couple announcements.

First, Maynard will soon be Emily Holm.

"Even though I went on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, I'm pretty traditional, believe it or not, so yeah - sure [I'll change my name]," the beautiful single mother said.

Jef and Emily

Holm then reiterated his plans to relocate to North Carolina and could not have sounded more excited over the couple's future.

"Every chance I get to see her and hang out with her, I take advantage of that," he gushed to Seacrest. "She's seriously the sweetest girl ever."

Finally, what about the rumor that Emily and Jef will pull a Molly and Jason Mesnick and get married on TV?

"People keep asking us that, and we don't even know what we're going to eat for lunch tomorrow," Maynard said. "I never thought I was going to be the Bachelorette, so I've learned to never say never. But it's something we'll have to talk about as a family."

In other words: if the money is right...

A few days after making their engagement known, following a beautiful proposal on The Bachelorette finale Monday night, Emily Maynard and Jef Holm are defying the critics.

They are still together and appear as content as ever, with Holm saying he plans to soon move to North Carolina to be closer to Maynard and her daughter Ricki.

Now, Emily has blogged on People about her "amazing" fiance and how lucky she is to have found him.

"Getting to share our love story with you all this season and reliving the proposal yesterday reminds me of how blessed I am to have found my best friend and partner in crime, Jef Holm," Maynard writes. "I've always believed in great love and hoped I'd find it one day. However, I had no idea a love like this even existed!"

Emily Maynard is more than just the new fiancee of Jef Holm, following her selection of this entrepreneur on The Bachelorette season finale.

She's also a record breaker!

Sources confirm to that the rock Holm placed on this single mother's finger Monday night is worth $150,000, "100 percent the biggest any woman has received on either The Bachelor or Bachelorette."

How did Holm afford such a diamond? He didn't, of course. Jeweler Neil Lane provided it to ABC free of charge.

The 3.5 carat ring is handmade and features 87 smaller diamonds around an emerald-cut 2.5 carat-sized main jewel. Take a look at it after the jump and react: Worth the price?

So far, so very good for Emily Maynard and Jef Holm.

The single mother chose the entrepreneur on last night's Bachelorette finale and, naturally, many viewers have already started counting down to their split.

But Emily and Jef appeared together on Good Morning America today and didn't look or sound like a couple on the verge of a split.

Holm, in fact, said he'll soon be moving to Charlotte to spend more time with his fiancee and her daughter, Ricki, although he'll be getting a "separate place" in the city.

"We're going to combine our lives and I'm going to hang out with Ricki all the time and become a car pool dad," Jef said. "We're just going to live our lives together and get accustomed with each other, plan a wedding, and when we get married, move in together."
