It seemed like true love when Emily Maynard and Jef Holm got engaged on the season finale of The Bachelorette in July. But have they called it quits?

Multiple reports claim the reality lovebirds have split up.

A source tells PEOPLE the couple have drastically cut back on the amount of time they've been spending together recently. On Sunday, they were spotted at an event together, but, says the source, have otherwise barely seen each other.

The couple have not responded to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Right after the pair went public with their romance, Maynard – a single mom to 7-year-old daughter Ricki – called Holm "the perfect man" and said he was her "best friend." Holm returned the affection, gushing, "I love her to death."

But it wasn't long before they faced rumors of fights and infidelity. In August, Holm told PEOPLE that tabloid reports claiming Maynard cheated on him were "100 percent not true."

When more rumors of trouble surfaced in September, they once again stood by their relationship. "We just try to laugh about it and not read it," Maynard told E! Online. "I trust him, he trusts me, and that's really the bottom line."

The couple, however, have not addressed the latest reports of a split.

Maynard was previously engaged to Bachelor star Brad Womack.
