Life & Style has exclusively learned that over the weekend of April 9, Emily Maynard made a phone call to her fiancÃÂ©, Bachelor Brad Womack, to tell him itÃ¢â¬â¢s over.
Ã¢â¬ÅEmily told Brad that she canÃ¢â¬â¢t picture them getting married,Ã¢â¬Â an insider reveals to Life & Style. Ã¢â¬ÅBradÃ¢â¬â¢s not acting like a fiancÃÂ©, and she knows that heÃ¢â¬â¢s not going to change. Emily knows in her heart of hearts that the relationship is finished.Ã¢â¬Â
A second insider confirms that the relationship fell apart in recent days. Ã¢â¬ÅEmily was very close to moving with her daughter, Ricki, to Austin, Texas, just weeks ago, but thatÃ¢â¬â¢s not true anymore,Ã¢â¬Â the insider says. In fact, a friend tells Life & Style that Brad put an offer on a new home Ã¢â¬â without even consulting Emily or asking her to come to see it first. Ã¢â¬ÅShe obviously feels that it isnÃ¢â¬â¢t the behavior of someone who plans to be with her.Ã¢â¬Â
The reason for the split stemmed from BradÃ¢â¬â¢s hurtful and erratic behavior. Emily became fearful he was cheating on her. Ã¢â¬ÅBrad seemed very complacent all of a sudden,Ã¢â¬Â says the insider. Ã¢â¬ÅHe did everything he could to woo and charm Emily on the show, and then it just slowed. Emily knows he likes Texas, he likes his bars and booze, so sheÃ¢â¬â¢s just wondering if he likes someone else. It started to really worry Emily. She felt like, Ã¢â¬ËIf heÃ¢â¬â¢s not wanting to see her, who is he with?Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
So why hasnÃ¢â¬â¢t Emily simply announced a split?
Her contract with ABC prevents her from speaking out about the relationship without the networkÃ¢â¬â¢s permission Ã¢â¬â and Life & Style has learned ABC called her on April 13 specifically to remind her of that point. Though the network canÃ¢â¬â¢t force them to stay together, a source says they have encouraged Emily to try to work things out with Brad, because they want Bachelor couples to make it down the aisle. Ã¢â¬ÅIn the end, they try to control it,Ã¢â¬Â Deanna Pappas Ã¢â¬â who competed on BradÃ¢â¬â¢s first season and went on to star on The Bachelorette Ã¢â¬â tells Life & Style.
The friend, who has spent time with Emily recently, confirms Emily has taken off her Neil Lane engagement ring. Ã¢â¬ÅShe doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t wear the ring anymore.Ã¢â¬Â
Isn’t that BS! ABC prohibits her from talking about their relationship!? What a crock!
