After "Bachelorette" couple Emily Maynard and Jef Holm denied allegations of Maynard's infidelity to People magazine, Holm's brother confirmed Us Weekly's recent cover story that Holm caught his bride-to-be sexting another man.
Holm's brother, Mike, read the Us Weekly story on Wednesday and said the article's accounts were completely accurate.

"I can tell you that it's all 100 percent true," Mike told Us Weekly on Aug. 23.
The magazine reported that over the weekend of Aug. 18, Holm took Maynard's phone and discovered she had been having an affair with another man. The scene took place at a vacation rental in Myrtle Beach, S.C., where Holm took Maynard and her 7-year-old daughter Ricki to meet his extended family.
"There were texts and pictures: 'Let's do this and that to each other,' " a source told the publication. "Jef and Emily went into a bedroom and were yelling. He said 'you've been f*cking cheating on me for months!' "
Maynard did not want to lose Holm and pleaded with him, the source said, but he told her to "pack her sh*t and get the f*ck out." The tabloid claimed Ricki and Maynard left the family compound at 1 a.m.
"I was there and I heard the fight and watched the whole thing go down, Emily leaving and everything," Mike said. "I love my brother very much and, like the rest of our family, I just want him to be happy."
Holm's brother though hopes the engagement is still on.
"We all love Emily, too. Mistakes happen, we all get that," he explained. "I hope they can work it all out, but as far as your story goes, it's all true."
However, the reality star couple told People a completely different story on Wednesday.
"It's one hundred percent not true," Maynard said of the cheating accusations.
"It's funny to me. We were in a gated community in a private home with just my brothers and sisters," Holm said. "It's just bogus a 'source' would [say] we were fighting. None of that is true."
The couple noted that they are now back in Charlotte, where Holm said he's spent the past two days looking at apartments and condos to move into so he can be closer to his fiancé and her daughter.
"I have never been more in love or felt more confident about our relationship," Maynard claimed. "We're so excited about the future and to be back in Charlotte and things are actually happening - looking at places to live and going to school. I'm happier than I've ever been."
