(LOS ANGELES) -- Emily Maynard claims she knew nothing about Jef Holm’s efforts to dish the dirt on their split to the highest bidder, UsWeekly reports.
A source tells UsWeekly the reigning Bachelorette was shocked to learn that her former fiancé is hoping to sell a tell-all about their break-up to magazines.
“Reporters were calling her and asking, ‘Will you comment on the story?’” The source adds, “She was blindsided."
An insider says Maynard “is sad and embarrassed about Jeff.”
