Despite their attempt to stay out of the public eye and work on their relationship, newly engaged Bachelor couple Brad Womack and Emily Maynard continue to be on the receiving end of some not so positive press.
First, Brad’s ex Laurel Kagay is once again speaking out against him. In a new interview with Life & Style magazine, Laurel, who dated Brad on and off from March 2002 to October 2010, tells the mag there were times during their relationship when Brad’s temper would get so out of control, “it was scary,” she says.
“He would sometimes yell, really loud, to the point that he would almost start throwing things,” she adds. And after the blowouts, Laurel states Brad would be apologetic, and send her $1,000 bouquets of flowers or expensive purses, and she would always end up taking him back due to his charm.
Laurel goes on to warn Emily, stating Brad has more than likely already started the same cycle with her. “I just want Emily to realize that he needs some sort of help [for his anger issues]. He can’t do it on his own,” she adds.
Meanwhile a source close to Brad tells the mag that the clock is ticking on Brad and Emily’s relationship. “Brad knows it’s over,” reveals the friend. “They’re together at the moment, but Brad has the feeling he’s about to get dumped.”
In fact, the latest issue of OK! magazine echoes the same sentiment as it features Brad and Emily on the cover proclaiming “It’s Over!” between the two.
According to OK!, the two are simply pretending to be together for the sake of The Bachelor brand. “There have been so many breakups and make ups — mostly over the phone or Skype,” a source close to Brad reveals. “Finally, Emily told him she can’t do this anymore and ended it.”
Brad, who just joined twitter this week, is however denying the OK! break up story. “Btw Em and I are better than ever. In fact maybe we should take editor of OK mag out for a drink. I’m buying. :),” tweeted Brad on Wednesday, the same day he joined twitter.
And finally, Popeater is reporting that just in case things with Emily do not work out, or you know, in case they have broken up already, there is a slight possibility Brad could end up as the Bachelor for the third time! Yikes.
According to the site, ABC insiders have already had internal discussions wondering if asking Brad to come back for a third run as ‘The Bachelor’ would result in ratings gold.
“If Brad hadn’t found love the second time there is no way he would ever be invited back on the show,” a show insider reveals. “But after America saw him try so hard to make his relationship work with Emily, they like him again. Everyone thinks Emily tricked him — they feel sorry for him.”
Here’s to hoping Brad and Emily make it work for the sake of all Bachelor fans around the world. Brad also took to his twitter to deny any possibility of returning to the show. “Strange rumor about me being bach for 3rd time…absolutely NO chance. ZERO. so happy w the one I love. have a great day guys!!,” he wrote.
For the time being, Brad is currently in North Carolina visiting Emily for the weekend. In fact, he just tweeted the photo below of Emily minutes ago.
