Brad’s ex Laurel Kagay warns Emily: Brad is abusive when he drinks! Be careful!

Bachelor Brad Womack and his fiancee Emily Maynard have broken up multiple times because of their “volatile fights” — as Brad put it himself on the After The Final Rose special on March 14. They both have said Brad’s hot temper causes a lot of problems in their relationship — and this isn’t the first time Brad’s anger has gotten in the way of love. His ex-girlfriend Laurel Kagay tells Life & Style magazine that Brad would get so out of control that “it was scary!”

“He would sometimes yell, really loud, to the point that he would almost start throwing things,” says Laurel. “And some of the things he would say were abusive, things that were just rude.”

And drinking would just add to Brad’s rage. “When he drinks, things can get more out of control,” Laurel explains. “Whatever issues Brad has, drinking should not be in his life. It makes everything more intense.” Too bad Brad owns four bars in Austin!

But like he has done with Emily, Brad would buy Laurel expensive presents like $1,000 flower arrangements and nice purses to try to make up for his outbursts.

And Brad has admittedly seen a therapist about his problems — he even brought him on the show.

But this doesn’t convince Laurel that he has changed. She wants Emily to be on guard.

“I just want Emily to realize that he needs some sort of help,” says Laurel. “He can’t do it on his own.”

Psychologist Patricia Farrell agrees, telling L&S: “I think she has to tread very carefully with Brad.”

Former Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi — who was briefly engaged to Jake Pavelka — says to Emily: “When someone’s temper is so bad that you’re scared to voice your opinion or even talk or say anything back — get out!”

BFFs — do you think Emily should be scared of Brad’s temper?
