After Emily Maynard and “Bachelorette” pick Jef Holm made headlines yesterday for denying tabloid reports that she was caught cheating on her now-fiance, a family member of the Holm clan has stepped forward to claim that she did, indeed, betray him.

Holm’s brother Mike told Us magazine that his sibling found recent explicit text messages and photos to and from another man on Maynard’s phone. Maynard had joined Holm’s extended family on vacation in South Carolina when the fight went down.

“I can tell you that it’s all 100% true. I was there and I heard the fight and watched the whole thing go down, Emily leaving and everything,” Mike said to Us in an interview. “I love my brother very much and, like the rest of our family, I just want him to be happy.”

That said, Mike wants his brother’s new relationship to work out and told the magazine that he hopes they stay together.

“We all love Emily, too. Mistakes happen, we all get that,” he stated. “I hope they can work it all out, but as far as your story goes, it’s all true.”
