People have been buzzing about Emily and Jef from “The Bachelorette” all week, as some sources claim that there is trouble in paradise. The couple themselves have yet to confirm or deny anything, and fans haven’t quite been sure what to make of things. Wednesday, Oct. 11 E! Online shared a tidbit that may give “Team Jem” fans some room to breathe.
Earlier this week, Reality Steve stated that Emily Maynard and Jef Holm broke up last weekend. He claims that right now they are in the process of determining how to release the news and that it could come out in a day, a few days, a couple of weeks, or some other completely random time-frame. Some fans have been a bit worried about the couple, because they have been subjected to relentless tabloid drama for some time now. Even the happiest, most bonded couples would have a hard time not letting some of the drama get to them to some degree.
However, many fans believe Jef and Emily are still together, or are trying to make things work even if they have hit a rough patch. Reality Steve says the two broke up over the weekend. However, they were sighted together, with Emily’s daughter Ricki, at Nordstrom’s on Monday after cheering her on at the Carolina Panthers game on Sunday. E! Online says that a source close to Emily and Jef told them, “It’s not true. They are not broken up.” Of course “Team Jem” fans would like something a bit more detailed than the usual anonymous source, but it’s sure better than nothing right now.
Emily Maynard and Jef Holm both tweeted sweet messages last week that seemed sure indicators they were still happy, together and strong. Since then, however, they seem to be on a social media blackout. It may be that they are circling the wagons and doing their best to stay out of the tabloids, especially after a couple of extremely harsh attacks last week. It could be that after time apart, they are simply focusing on themselves and their family.
Fans will remember that as the show aired, spoiler fans were often able to pinpoint what seemed to be their secret rendezvous weekends by their respective social media blackouts. After being apart for the previous week, and the strain of the tabloid drama, it’s not unrealistic to think that they may be staying off social media to once again focus on their relationship just like during their secret weekends together as the show aired. The possibility does exist, of course, that their silence is indeed due to trouble they don’t want to address. But it seems clear there are several possibilities at this point.
Nobody except Emily Maynard and Jef Holm really know the state of their relationship right now, and they aren’t saying boo at the moment. Both of them have had a lot of fun with social media and fan contact in the past, so sharing nothing in nearly a week is a huge change for both of them. For now fans will have to stay tuned to see what comes next, and they hope the mystery won’t stick around for too long. It seems that Jef is still in Charlotte, though that is not absolutely certain right now. If he is, that gives fans hope that the two are either still happily and quietly together, or are trying to make things work.
What do you think of all the rumors? Are Emily and Jef going to be able to stick together? Are they fine and just staying away from the drama for a bit? Will this “The Bachelorette” couple still find their happily ever after together?
