Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski seemed to be making their relationship work despite rumors of his rampant infidelity in the run-up to their Bachelorette engagement.

But did his cheating ways return, and were they responsible for the couple’s split, which we reported yesterday? That’s the rumor, according to friends of the pair.

“We think Ed was doing shady stuff during their relationship,” an inside source said of Swiderski. “Jillian knew all along but couldn’t quite put her finger on it.”

We’re guessing Lindsey Johnson and Bethany Steffen can relate.

Friends recall an incident a month-and-a-half ago when the pair flew to L.A. from Chicago and Jillian stayed with girlfriends while Ed stayed with the guys.

Was Ed Swiderski screwing around behind Jill’s back?

The morning after they had a night out on the town, the pals had an early tee-time to play golf but when they went to pick up Ed Swiderski, he couldn’t make it.

“I believe what happened was he had a girl with him and had no way to get her out of the house,” revealed the inside source. “They all knew he was a player.”

Jillian Harris became the star of The Bachelorette after she was rejected by Jason Mesnick in the preceding season of The Bachelor. He married Molly Malaney.

Former Bachelor contestants close to her say she was happy, but knew there was trouble brewing. “Jillian thought that she could change him,” says the insider.

Once a cheater, always a cheater … right Vienna?
