The latest season of The Bachelor has now come and gone, but coming out of the season where Brad Womack was given a second chance of love, he may have chosen someone — Emily Maynard — but the two are having troubles working things out as a couple outside of the reality series.
Yesterday, we reported via In Touch Weekly that Maynard allegedly cheated on Bachelor Womack just after the season of the show concluded months ago (after the same season finale episode we saw this past Monday night). Unbeknown to Womack, Maynard has been hooking up with Brett J. Barniske, a car dealership owner based out her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.
A source close to the two describe the two as being close because they previously dated each other before she was cast as a contestant on the ABC reality series. In fact, after the season finale of The Bachelor this past Monday, Barniske was apparently in a Charlotte bar, showing off photos of his girlfriend, as if the two were a couple. “Brett seemed to miss Emily a lot,” a source close to In Touch said.
Whether Womack is aware of the apparent infinitely is unknown, but a source close to him recently opened up to OK! Magazine, saying that Womack is “concerened what will happen after the show. Most of the couples have had trouble maintaining relationships.”
