Amy Robach blindsided by alleged TJ Holmes affairs: report

Amy Robach didn’t expect her alleged affair with TJ Holmes to “explode into scandal”, according to a new report.

The ‘GMA3’ personality, whose shock romance with her co-host catapulted the pair into the news cycle last November, feels like ‘collateral damage’, a source told the American Sun.

“She had no idea the scope of TJ’s alleged past office romances,” the insider added, referring to Holmes’ alleged alliances with a trainee 13 years his junior and an ABC producer.

“She certainly hadn’t expected their relationship to cause major upheaval – outside of her own marriage.”

Robach, 43, and Holmes, 45, were taken off the air soon after the scandal broke. A the internal investigation is still ongoing at the ABC.

The US Sun’s source believes the inquest will “look into Amy’s past to try and find a scandal”, noting, “Luckily for her, she is doing quite well.”

However, a source tells Page Six that Robach wasn’t “blindsided” as the report claims — at least by Holmes’ relationship with producer Natasha Singh. The insider claims he was “straightforward” with her regarding their former relationship.

Page Six has reached out to reps for Robach and Holmes for comment.

The new report comes just a week after a source claimed at that Holmes had a months-long affair in 2015 with then 24-year-old Jasmin Pettaway – while married to his now estranged wife, Marilee Fiebig.

“He was a predator who took full advantage of his position and he was reckless,” said the source, who reportedly knew the script coordinator well at the time.

“It was Jasmin’s first real job on television, and it was a big deal for her. She was looking for a mentor and she contacted several people. TJ was a reactive person, but he completely abused his position of trust.

The insider alleged that the two had sex, saying Pettaway was “confused afterwards” as to what it all meant. The source further claimed that Holmes’ behavior was part of a pattern of “incredibly reckless” conduct on his part.

Amid all the recent media attention, Holmes and Robach’s jobs at ‘GMA3’ are now thought to be on the Billot.

The couple were quickly taken off the air after their relationship was revealed.

“They haven’t been fired yet, but I don’t expect TJ to come back,” an insider told Page Six last week, noting that the two sides got engaged amid negotiations.

“They want Amy to stay and be a part of things there, but probably not on ‘GMA3’.”

Amid the scandal, Holmes and Robach also separated from their respective spouses, Fiebig and Andrew Shue.

Holmes filed for divorce from Fiebig in December 2022. In the meantime, Robach had already been close to finalize her separation from her actor husband when the case hit the headlines.
