TJ Holmes is already in trouble with GMA for his alleged affair with Amy Robach. ABC launched an internal review surrounding the scandal. In early December 2022, it was reported that TJ was involved with multiple staffers on the show, including a producer.
Now, a new report claims that he was allegedly involved with a much younger woman who worked there. Keep on reading to learn more and get all the details.
TJ Holmes had another alleged fling?
According to a new report, TJ Holmes had another alleged fling before he was involved with his GMA3 co-anchor Amy Robach. Jasmin Pettaway’s alleged affair with the former ABC World News star happened in 2015. The two had steamy sessions in TJ’s office when she interned for him. A source close to Jasmin spoke to Daily Mail.com about their alleged tryst.
The then 24-year-old was smitten with the 40-year-old. She looked up to him as a role model and mentor. At the time, Jasmin reached out to TJ to mentor her on her career. Little did she know that it would turn into a full-fledged affair.

It ended up making her feel “confused” about the situation. Jasmin also felt weird around TJ Holmes. She feels that he was predatory in his ways. His behavior mimicked that of Matt Lauer from The Today Show.
“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. TJ was someone who was responsive, but he absolutely abused the position of trust.”
The two colleagues worked on the same shift together. TJ Holmes invited her out to drinks after work, claims the source. At first, they would drink with their colleagues until TJ invited her into his office for an after-hours drink. After their first hookup in the office, he was “reckless” about his affair.
GMA3 co-anchor didn’t care about cheating?
In late December 2022, TJ Holmes filed for divorce from his wife Marilee Fiebig. The two were married for over 10 years. However, he didn’t care that he cheated on her. Even the ring on his finger didn’t matter to him.
“He just didn’t seem to care. You know, he’s wearing his ring,” the source continued. “He has a wife, he has a relatively high-profile job, but he wasn’t acting like he was concerned about either of those things at the time.”
When the two went out for drinks, TJ Holmes was allegedly “handsy” with Jasmin. She hasn’t confirmed the alleged affair. It “fizzled out” after several months. TJ quickly lost interest in her as he moved on to the next high.
“No one talked about abuse of power back then, but stuff happened,” the source added.
Jasmin did speak out about ABC’s “toxic work environment” in an interview with Voyage Ohio Magazine in 2021. She explained that it “really damaged my self-esteem.” TJ Holmes is battling both his former wife and ABC in court. He could lose his job due to having many alleged affairs with his staffers.
