T.J. Holmes allegedly had sex with intern, 24, in his office

TJ Holmes allegedly had sex with a much younger subordinate on the job.

A source claimed to the Daily Mail on Thursday that Holmes had a months-long affair with Jasmin Pettaway, then 24, in 2015 — while the currently suspended “GMA3” co-host was married to his now estranged wife, Marilee Fiebig.

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

“It was Jasmin’s first real job in television and it was a big deal for her,” continued the source, who spoke to the British newspaper on condition of anonymity. “She was looking for a mentor and she contacted several people. TJ was someone who was responsive, but he definitely abused the position of trust.

According to the reported insider, Pettaway and Holmes, who joined the ABC News team in September 2014, often worked the same shifts.

“Holmes was someone who grabbed drinks, and he and Jasmin started doing that,” the insider claimed, noting that the now 45-year-old was “a correspondent at the time.”

The informant further claimed that the first time the couple’s relationship “became sexual” was “in his office” – just a “few hours” before he was about to go on air.

The insider claimed to the Mail: “They had sex, and I know she was confused afterwards about what it meant.”

According to the source, Holmes’s alleged behavior with Pettaway was not unusual, but rather part of “incredibly reckless” behavior on his part.

According to the report, the anchor even got “handy” in public with Pettaway while they were drinking.

“He just didn’t seem to care,” the source said, claiming that Holmes was “wearing his [wedding] call at that time.

The couple’s alleged affair “fizzled out” after a few months, leading the insider to question whether Holmes was “ever invested in being a mentor”.

“He had it all on his terms. He was interested and then he wasn’t,” the informant claimed, adding, “No one was talking about abuse of power then, but things happened.”

An ABC source tells Page Six exclusively that “an internal investigation is already underway into whether anything happened between TJ and Jasmin Pettaway.”

“She was only with ABC News for a short time, but if they had an affair when he was her superior, it would be a huge problem for TJ,” our source adds.

ABC declined to comment.

Holmes’ behavior in the workplace first made headlines in November 2022 when his month-long affair with his then-married “GMA3” co-anchor, Amy Robach, was revealed.

After the network launched an investigation according to the nature of the colleagues’ relationship, it was reported that Holmes allegedly had romances with at least two other employeesincluding married producer Natasha Singh.

“The feeling is that TJ and Amy are not come back‘ says our source. “HR and the executives are looking for a way to hang them, and this could be it for him.”

“He and Amy are equals,” our insider notes, “but if he had an affair with a subordinate, that’s a clear reason for his firing.”

Representatives for Holmes and Robach declined to comment.
