Repeat offender? Or is it a serial cheater? Supposedly so.
Per reports by Page Six, “GMA3” host T.J Holmes had at least one other alleged affair in addition to his relationships with co-host Amy Robach and producer Natasha Singh.
Multiple sources informed the news outlet that the TV host had a relationship with another staffer while working at the network and while married to his wife, Marilee Fiebig. Reps for Holmes did not respond to the allegation.
Both Holmes, 45, and Robach,49, reportedly left their spouses in August after an alleged months-long affair, but the duo was plagued by internal speculation for years – going far back as 2017 – and were confronted by anchor Robin Roberts about the rumors.
Page Six also exclusively reported that T.J Holmes also had an alleged three-year affair with married “Good Morning America” producer Natasha Singh in 2016. Singh has since divorced and did not comment on the alleged affair when the outlet reached out.
According to the outlet, Holmes’ wife, Marilee Fiebig, found out about the affair in 2019 after finding several emails.
Last week, shocking photos of T.J Holmes and Amy Robach on romantic dates and even a weekend getaway together were shared online. And although the pair initially remained on air to host GMA3 for two days, the two were benched from anchoring the show on Monday (December 5) morning.
“TJ’s cheating with ABC staffers was definitely one of the reasons why they were yanked off,” a source told Page Six. “It has become a distraction.”
And there might be other issues as well.
“He’s also a d—k to producers. No one likes working with him,” says the insider. “He yells and has the biggest ego.”
Holmes’ relationship with Singh might have been additionally problematic for him as ABC talent’s relationship clause can bar relationships between employees (including non-managerial staff) where one staff member assigns the work duties or sets the work schedule of the other.
ABC News president Kim Godwin announced Monday during an internal call that Holmes and Robach would not host their daily 1. p.m shoe since it has become too much of an “internal and external distraction.”
However, a source claims they might not be off for good. “It just depends on what else comes out,” they said.
Another insider claims, “The affair was initially determined to be a personal matter, and they did not violate company policy. After more developments, the conversations went into a different direction on Monday.”
ABC bosses were also reportedly not pleased with Holmes and Robach’s behavior. The two had arrived to work the day after the news broke as a couple. Sources claim the two “are not ashamed” since they’re “two consenting adults who ended up loving each other.”
Some GMA anchors, including Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos, were also reportedly furious about the “messy scandal,” though they’re yet to comment on it publicly.
According to sources, the two take immense pride in their team’s reputation for demonstrating strong family values and happy marriages.
“George and Robin do not like this. This is very messy,” the source explained.
