The former "Bachelorette" couple were allegedly deep in conversation and openly affectionate while at Connolly's Irish pub in Charlotte on December 11, according to RadarOnline.com.
"Emily sat on a stool at the bar while Jef stood facing her between her legs. It was obvious they were having some sort of deep conversation, but Emily also had her arms hanging around his neck affectionately at one point," one eyewitness told Radar.
Despite reports that Maynard, 26, had moved on with truck racer Jason White, 33, shortly after calling off her engagement to Holm in October, it appears that the single mom may have had a change of heart.
"I was surprised at how into each other they were acting because it was clear that they were trying to go unnoticed and didn't want attention from anyone," the source explained adding. "From what I could overhear, they were having a discussion about their relationship status."
Photographs of their reunion were posted on RadarOnline.com and they appear to support claims that the exes were deep in conversation.
Holm, who was admittedly left heart broken over his split from Maynard, reportedly got into a physical altercation with another bar patron after realizing that his picture was being taken although the patron was eventually escorted out of the venue.
"Jef got physical with some guy over taking a photo so Emily grabbed his cheeks with both hands and was like, 'Stop, calm down,'" the source explained.
The 28-year-old entrepreneur initially denied claims made by his brother Mike about Maynard exchanging explicit texts with another male. The couple insisted that their relationship was not subject to problems although weeks later Maynard confirmed that they had parted ways.
"I am sorry to tell you that Jef and I have, indeed, parted ways. It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision," Maynard said in a statement to People magazine.
