As “Bachelor” Brad Womack would say: “My Gahhhd!” Say it isn’t so: Young Mama Emily Maynard has reportedly axed her relationship with the 38-year-old Texan—over the phone! (Well, at least it wasn’t by texting.)
“Emily told Brad that she can’t picture them getting married,” an insider reveals exclusively 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 source says that it was only weeks ago that Emily was planning on moving herself and her daughter, Ricki, down to Austin, but that in recent days, Brad’s “erratic” behavior—like putting down an offer for a new home without consulting her first—made her single-mama-fear-o-meter hit the charts!
Another concern: The 24-year-old North Cackeylackian feared he was creepin’ around! “Brad seemed very complacent all of a sudden,” says Insider Deux. “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?’”
Because she’s contractually obligated to keep her lips zipped about the break-up until ABC frantically begs her to stay with him gives her the green light, Emily’s keeping a low profile. But that doesn’t mean she can’t express her rebellion in other ways…you know that network-bought Neil Lane sparkler? Oh, it’s off, baby.
