Emily Maynard and Jef Holm called off their engagement and broke up over the weekend, according to a reliable source who seems to never be wrong.

Reality Steve claims that while no official announcement of their engagement ending has been reported, he knows for certain that the couple is done.

Steve posted the following about Emily Maynard and Jef Holm:

“I don’t care if you say I’m crazy … until Jef and Emily [confirm it], I guess that’s when you’ll believe it, but I can tell you right now that Jef and Emily broke up this weekend.”

“Done. Over. No longer engaged.”


The reality TV blogger with unnamed and unmatched contacts within the show’s universe went on to say that Emily and Jef will continue to put on a facade.

That means denials, public appearances, Twitter pics, etc. You name it.

“Right now, they are in the process of figuring out how they will present the breakup to the media, when they’re gonna release the statement, and [to whom],” he writes.

“I have no idea [when]. They have a few things that obviously need to be sorted out and they’re gonna need to figure out what the reasoning is they want to give the media.”

“It just happened a couple days ago. This isn’t a rumor,” he reiterates.

“I didn’t hear this 5th hand, and I’m not making it up for attention. All I’m here to tell you is that Jef and Emily are no longer an engaged couple and have broken up.”

As for the obligatory “how the heck does Steve possibly know this” question, we have no idea. However, Bachelorette and Bachelor spoilers are what he does.

He’s not in the business of being wrong. That’s all we’re saying.

Breakup rumors have dogged the couple since they got engaged on The Bachelorette season finale this July, but they have put on a united front each time.

When Emily Maynard was accused of sexting another man while on vacation, Jef Holm vehemently denied it, even with his own brother going on record.

If it’s over, which it looks like it is, a lot of people were wrong in our poll:
