Here’s news that probably won’t surprise you… Emily Maynard and Brad Womack have broken up – for good. The winner of ‘The Bachelor’ has reportedly returned her engagement ring.
According to US Weekly, Maynard was spotted in North Carolina over the weekend without the ring Womack gave her on ‘The Bachelor’ finale. An insider claims Emily returned the ring to ABC.
Sources claim that the couple’s long-distance relationship was just too hard to continue, with a source telling Us, “It’s completely over now.”
Maynard is reported to have initiated the breakup, which happened about two weeks ago after she visited Womack’s home in Austin, Texas, in a last-ditch attempt to save their relationship.
“Emily is happy in Charlotte [North Carolina] and is not moving to Austin with [her 5-year-old daughter] Ricki,” a source told Us. “She is content.”
The breakup comes as no surprise to those keeping tabs on the reality couple. Trouble has been brewing in paradise since the March finale, where the couple’s body language gave some clues into their icy relationship.
I think I’d be more surprised these days if a Bachelor couple actually DID make it – rather than if they broke up. It’s just not surprising anymore.
