Former Bachelorette Emily Maynard, who split from fiancé Jef Holm in October, is denying reports that she is currently dating Bachelor Sean Lowe, who competed for her affection during her season of the ABC reality hit. "No need to be in shock.. Not true! Believe it or not, sometimes Star Mag isn't the most reliable source," Emily wrote to a fan on Twitter.
Though Emily isn't renewing her romance with Sean, that doesn't mean she isn't dating, as E! News has the exclusive details on her new man...
Emily was recently spotted with an unidentified man at the opening night of Les Miserables on Feb. 12 at the Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts in Charlotte, NC. "As they were walking through the crowd, he had his hand on her lower back guiding her. It was very caring, "a source tells us. "They looked very happy."
Emily tweeted about going to the concert on Feb. 13, posting, "If you're near CLT you have to to see @LesMisonTour at @BlumenthalArts. Went last night and the entire show was absolutely amazing!" But she didn't mention attending with anyone.
Our source tells us Emily's date was "a tall handsome guy with brown hair," and says, "They were a very cute couple. It was opening night and they stayed in their seats and talked with one another during intermission."
The "cheating" report, which originated in Star magazine, said that Emily met Sean at a Bachelor event, and that she told him she "regretted not having chosen him" and that she "was heartbroken." The magazine added that Sean was delighted when she said that, and that even though he is engaged "he's acting like a single man."
Sean is engaged to the woman he chooses on The Bachelor finale, airing March 11.
