Emily Maynard was sexting none other than NFL quarterback Matt Leinart while on vacation with Jef Holm, according to the magazine who will simply not let go of this story.

Last month, The Bachelorette winner was accused by Us Weekly of sexting with another man, leading to an explosive fight with fiance Jef that his own brother “confirmed.”

The tabloid now claims it was Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Leinart on the other end.


Despite his earlier denials, Us claims Holm had a heart-to-heart with ex Kaylee Shepherd about the incident, and she says “He said the story was 100 percent accurate.”

“When she put her phone down, [Jef] picked it up and read everything. Jef said, ‘It was that pro football guy … She strung me along and was talking to another guy the whole time!'”

[SIDE NOTE: Matt Leinart is still in the NFL? Who knew!]

Of course, Bachelorette fans are likely aware that Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have not only stayed together, but seemed happier than ever since the alleged incident.

And he met her late fiance’s parents. And moved to North Carolina.

Still, “Jef said their relationship isn’t what it seems,” Shepherd says.

Us claims in its new issue that the reason they’re still together is simple: Emily’s paying him. The couple also shot this report down immediately, so you be the judge.

Will Emily Maynard and Jef Holm last?
