'Bachelor' Brad Womack Dumped By Emily Maynard — Over The Phone! Breaking News!

Emily has reportedly taken off her Neil Lane engagement ring and called it quits with Brad — because she was afraid he was cheating on her!

Emily Maynard has broken things off with her fiance Bachelor Brad Womack! Emily called Brad over the weekend of April 9 to tell him that it was over because she feared he was cheating on her, Life & Style magazine reports.

“Emily told Brad that she can’t picture them getting married,” a source tells L&S. “Brad’s not acting like a fiance, and she knows that he’s not going to change. Emily knows in her heart of hearts that the relationship is finished.”

Emily called it off because she was getting worried that Brad was seeing someone else in Austin.

“Brad seemed very complacent all of a sudden,” says another insider. “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?’”

So now Emily and her 5-year-old daughter Ricki will no longer be moving to Austin to be with Brad this summer. “Emily was very close to moving with her daughter, Ricki, to Austin, Texas, just weeks ago, but that’s not true anymore,” the insider says.

Brad had even put an offer on a home — but hadn’t consulted with Emily before he made the decision. “She obviously feels that it isn’t the behavior of someone who plans to be with her,” adds a friend of the couple.

For now Emily has to keep the breakup to herself — until ABC gives her permission to tell the world. A source confirms that the network has asked the couple to try and work through their problems to make the relationship work.

BFFs — do you think Brad and Emily should try and make it work?
