"But if everybody knew the history he had with our family, no one would be surprised."

It's been one month since Charlotte, N.C., mom Emily Maynard accepted Utah-based entrepreneur Jef Holm's marriage proposal on the season finale of The Bachelorette. Now they're back in the news thanks to tabloid reports claiming Maynard betrayed her fiancé.

"It's one hundred percent not true," Maynard tells PEOPLE exclusively of the cheating accusations.

According to reports, the couple had a blowout fight while vacationing with Holm's family and Maynard's 7-year-old daughter Ricki in Myrtle Beach, S.C., last weekend.

"It's funny to me," Holm tells PEOPLE. "We were in a gated community in a private home with just my brothers and sisters. It's just bogus a 'source' would [say] we were fighting. None of that is true."

Hosting a party for friends at New York City's Dream Downtown Hotel, Holm and Maynard "were often seen holding hands under the table," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

The guests – who drank champagne and cocktails and dined on burgers, salmon and seafood at the hotel's Marble Lane restaurant – made their way to the venue's rooftop lounge after dinner, where, the source adds, Holm looked "shocked and embarrassed, but loved the attention" after being surprised with a birthday cake.

According to the source, the gang partied until 3 a.m.
