T.J. Holmes engaged in an affair with a script coordinator 13 years his junior who reached out to him as a prospective mentor but was left feeling uncomfortable and used after the relationship turned sexual, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
According to one well-placed source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the affair with then 24-year-old Jasmin Pettaway, took place in 2015 when Holmes had been married to his now-estranged wife, Marilee Fiebig, for five years.
The source, who knew Pettaway well at the time, said, ‘He was a predator who took full advantage of his position, and he was reckless.
‘It was Jasmin’s first real job in television, and it was a big deal for her. She was looking for a mentor and she reached out to several people. T.J was someone who was responsive, but he absolutely abused the position of trust,’ the source said.
