Emily keeps calling it quits with Brad — is it because she’s been seeing another guy behind his back?
Is Emily Maynard leading Bachelor Brad Womack to even more heartache? When Emily returned home to Charlotte, N.C. in January after Bachelor filming ended, she reportedly was dating her ex-boyfriend, automotive exec David Smith, according to In Touch magazine.
“Without telling Dave exactly what happened, she gave him the impression that she didn’t win,” Dave’s buddy Sam Yaravitz says. “He’s not the kind of guy who would date a woman who’s engaged to another man. And I’m prety sure Brad doesn’t know about him, either.”
Emily first met Dave years ago through her fiance Ricky Hendrick, who was killed in a 2004 plane crash. But they started seriously dating prior to Emily going on The Bachelor. “They were dating exclusively and were intimate right up until the day she left to shoot the show in the fall,” Sam claims.
“She didn’t tell him about The Bachelor until a couple of days before she left,” says Sam. “Obviously, he wasn’t happy.”
But when Emily got back, “she started calling him, wanting to get together,” he says. In late January, Emily invited Dave to her birthday party. “You could see them together, talking close.”
Then on Feb. 6, Emily showed up to Dave’s Super Bowl party. “During the second quarter, they disappeared into David’s bedroom,” Sam says. “She apologized about having gone on the show, and asked David to take her back.”
But then Emily reunited with Brad on After The Final Rose on March 14. “A few days before taping ATFR, she called David and told im that it was over between her and Brad, so David was shocked at the way it turned out,” says Sam.
David still stayed with Emily after what happened on national television until Easter weekend, when Emily didn’t answer any of his calls. That’s when David decided he was done. Throughout all of this, Emily led Brad to believe that she was going to move to Austin to build a life together.
