Emily Maynard on her relationship with Brad Womack: “There’s nothing going on between us anymore.”

Ever since Emily Maynard stopped wearing the $90,000 engagement ring that Bachelor Brad Womack gave her, there have been conflicting reports about who actually did the dumping.

Now, for the first time, Emily has broken her silence, revealing that it was Brad who ditched her — over the phone!

Life & Style can reveal that the 24-year-old told a reporter on June 1 that it’s definitely over between her and the Texas bar owner. “There’s nothing going on between us anymore,” she admitted sadly. “It’s over. He called me and broke up with me. That’s it — he ended the relationship.”

The pair spent a weekend in Austin at the beginning of May, as Life & Style previously reported, in a final effort to save their relationship. “The last time we were together was when we said goodbye at the airport in Austin,” Emily, photographed (above) on June 1 without her ring, confessed. “That was the last time I saw him.”

Brad Womack & Emily Maynard officially SPLIT over the weekend!

Life & Style has exclusively learned that over the weekend of April 9, Emily Maynard made a phone call to her fiancé, Bachelor Brad Womack, to tell him it’s over.

“Emily told Brad that she can’t picture them getting married,” an insider reveals to Life & Style. “Brad’s not acting like a fiancé, and she knows that he’s not going to change. Emily knows in her heart of hearts that the relationship is finished.”

A second insider confirms that the relationship fell apart in recent days. “Emily was very close to moving with her daughter, Ricki, to Austin, Texas, just weeks ago, but that’s not true anymore,” the insider says. In fact, a friend tells Life & Style that Brad put an offer on a new home — without even consulting Emily or asking her to come to see it first. “She obviously feels that it isn’t the behavior of someone who plans to be with her.”

The reason for the split stemmed from Brad’s hurtful and erratic behavior. Emily became fearful he was cheating on her. “Brad seemed very complacent all of a sudden,” says the insider. “He 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 she’s just wondering if he likes someone else. It started to really worry Emily. She felt like, ‘If he’s not wanting to see her, who is he with?’”

So why hasn’t Emily simply announced a split?

Her contract with ABC prevents her from speaking out about the relationship without the network’s permission — and Life & Style has learned ABC called her on April 13 specifically to remind her of that point. Though the network can’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. “In the end, they try to control it,” Deanna Pappas — who competed on Brad’s first season and went on to star on The Bachelorette — tells Life & Style.

The friend, who has spent time with Emily recently, confirms Emily has taken off her Neil Lane engagement ring. “She doesn’t wear the ring anymore.”

Isn’t that BS! ABC prohibits her from talking about their relationship!? What a crock!

The Bachelor’s Emily moves to Austin to be with Brad!

Hmm… could this troubled couple actually be making things work?

Life & Style can exclusively reveal that Emily Maynard has decided to make the move from North Carolina to Texas with her 5-year-old daughter, Ricki, to be with her fiancé Brad Womack.

“She feels like the best thing to do is to give this a real shot and put her heart into it by moving to Austin for the summer,” an insider close to Emily tells Life & Style. “She’s going to get her own condo there. She’s not moving in with him.”

Brad has made it clear that the only thing he refuses to bend on is where he and his future wife will live. “I know love is a compromise, but that’s the only thing that I was very adamant about,” he tells Life & Style. “I have some very strong roots there. I don’t want to relocate. I have a career in Austin.”

Jimmy Kimmel announces the new Bachelorette – and the lucky lady is….

Ashley Hebert!

Ashley made it to the final three with Brad Womack, and now the 26-year-old is getting her own shot at love! (No wonder she was so peppy during the Reunion: Women Tell All episode!)

Monday night, hours after the “The Bachelor’s” final rose ceremony, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” announced exclusively that the next Bachelorette would be Ashley Hebert. Hebert, who made it to the final three of this past season of “The Bachelor,” sat down with the late night host to discuss her feelings about newly engaged Bachelor Brad Womack and the support of those around her, and then was later sworn in by Kimmel over an official magazine.

What do you think about Ashley being picked as the Bachelorette? I’m torn… she definitely wasn’t my favorite, I was hoping to see Shawntel, or even Chantal (final 2). Ashley’s high energy will make for good TV – but I find her slightly annoying… What’s your opinion?
