Yesterday we wrote about the Us Weekly story that claimed Bachelorette Emily Maynard was caught “sexting” a mystery man while on a Holm family vacation last weekend. After the story came out, Jef and Emily told the media they weren’t true. THEN, Jef Holm’s own brother, Mike Holm, who was on the sexting family vacation in question, went to Us Weekly to confirm that the story WAS true. First of all, regardless if the story was or wasn’t true, to go against your own brother’s word to the tabloids is just a seriously a-wad move.
Finally, today, Jef told People magazine that, again, not only were the rumors NOT true, but that he was not surprised by his brother’s tabloid-leaky behavior because he’s done ‘hurtful things’ to the family in the past.
“My family all says they are shocked, and obviously I’m shocked,” Jef tells PEOPLE exclusively about Mike, who vacationed with the Holms family, Maynard and Maynard’s 7-year-old daughter Ricki in Myrtle Beach, S.C., last weekend. “But if everybody knew the history he had with our family, no one would be surprised.”
I mean….I think the real situation here is Mike Holm!! Bachelor/ette couples have a hard enough time as it is making things work in the spotlight of the post-show media frenzy without having to also worry about the duplicitous actions of a close, insider family member.
Then, Jef, funny dude that he is, posted a photo snapshot of his iPhone text messages to Instagram, showing a funny text he got from his friend Jeremy Jackson that said: “Jef! I’m soooooo sorry dude! I’m sorry that I was sexting Emily and I’m sorry that when u opened her phone u had to see a pic of my little Johnson! Please forgive me!!!” Jef’s Instagram caption for the screenshot photo read: “Dammit @jerjackson I had a feeling it was you!!” HAHAHA! We love that Jef is able to joke around with his buddies about all the tabloid junk!
We are still rooting for Team JEM to make it to the altar!!
