The Bachelor’s Brad Womack is a bachelor once again, but why? An inside source shares insight with In Touch about Emily Maynard’s reasons for leaving Brad.
Despite Brad’s obvious devotion to his 25-year-old fiancée, Emily simply doesn’t care that much for Brad. “She wasn’t head over heels in love with him,” an insider reveals. “She never felt the kind of connection” she had with her former boyfriend, the late Ricky Hendrick.
Emily never had any intention of getting serious with Brad. “She just wants to be famous,” the source explains, “and he didn’t realize that Brad would actually pick her. She never really planned on marrying him.”
While Emily has been criticized for her parenting skills, her daughter, Ricki, 5, was the first thing on her mind when Brad pushed Emily to move to Austin, Texas. “Emily was just never keen on moving her daughter away from her family and grandparents,” the source further explains.
Meanwhile, it was Brad’s temper that concerned Emily most. “When he felt insecure, he’d call her a lot, sometimes even after he’d been drinking. And he was very possessive,” the insider adds. "They just wanted different lives, and Emily couldn’t take it anymore.”
