Brad Womack and Emily Maynard have been at the center of a tabloid whirlwind ever since getting engaged on the season finale of “The Bachelor.” Now the new OK! magazine claims they’re done.

“It’s Over!” blares the cover, going on to explain, “They’re still smiling for the cameras, but Emily has now dumped Brad for good.” Sigh. Here we go with yet another story alleging a couple only appears to be together as an act.

“The two are pretending they’re together for the sake of The Bachelor brand,” explains the magazine. “In real life, a staffer from the show has revealed exclusively to OK! that Emily has broken up with Brad – for good.” Maynard was supposedly infuriated while having to watch Womack interact with his other suitors as “The Bachelor” aired this winter, and the couple was unable to put aside their alleged fighting.

Supposedly, Womack and Maynard seem so blissful now only because they signed a contract to appear together after the show ended if he proposed. “Although Emily is doing her best to abide by the Bachelor agreements now that she’s fallen out of love with Brad, she’s having a hard time being around him,” explains OK! If Maynard and Womack are just pretending to be happy together, they’re doing a really good job.

“I love @BRAD_WOMACK ! Everyone add him but don’t forget he’s taken!” tweeted Maynard this afternoon. Womack, who just joined Twitter today, had his own response to the latest rumors. “Btw Em and I are better than ever. In fact maybe we should take editor of OK mag out for a drink. I’m buying,” joked the former “Bachelor.” He added, “Don’t believe what you read in the tabloids. I guess doom & gloom sells better than happiness!”

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves. A source close to the couple tells Gossip Cop the story is “completely false,” adding Womack and Maynard “are going strong and are very happy.” We’re assured that they are still engaged, and while there are no current wedding plans (and no guarantees with reality TV), Womack and Maynard are excited to be with each other, regardless of cameras and contracts.
