Still-suspended “GMA3” co-host TJ Holmes had an alleged office fling with another junior staffer, a source exclusively told Page Six.
The insider claims the alleged encounter took place in 2015, the same year a then-married Holmes allegedly had a months-long affair with his subordinate Jasmin Pettaway, whom he allegedly had sex with in his office.
The second woman — whose identity we have chosen not to disclose — has yet to respond to our numerous requests for comment.
Our source tells us she was in her mid-20s and working as an overnight associate producer at ABC at the time of the alleged encounter.
Holmes, now 45, and the staff member, who is no longer with the network, were said to have been in his office after 3 a.m. with the door locked.
We’re told “a bunch of rustling” could be heard coming from inside the room and the woman emerged “completely flush” and like “a deer in the headlights”.
It is unclear whether the staff member ever reported the alleged encounter to HR.
“He was in a position of power over her,” our source tells us.
“I think it was like, ‘Here’s this beautiful young girl, and she’s here in my office, let me make a move,’ something,” the insider adds, describing the situation as “similar” to Pettaway’s. .
Representatives for Holmes declined to comment, and ABC did not immediately respond to inquiries from Page Six.
Last week, a source believed to be close to Pettaway, a 24-year-old script coordinator at the time, alleged to DailyMail.com that the first time Holmes ‘had sex’ with her was “in his office” – just a “few hours” before he went live on the air.
“They had sex, and I know she was confused afterwards as to what that meant,” the source said, calling Holmes a “predator who took full advantage of his position.”
Representatives for Holmes declined to comment on Pettaway’s allegations, while an ABC insider previously told Page Six that there was “already an internal investigation underway to find out if anything happened between TJ and Jasmine Pettaway”.
Pettaway didn’t return our calls.
Holmes’ behavior at work made headlines in November 2022 when his months-long affair with his then-married ‘GMA3’ co-anchor Amy Robach came to light.
After the network launched an investigation into the nature of the coworkers’ relationship, it was reported that Holmes was allegedly romantically involved with at least two other employees, including married producer Natasha Singh.
“[Holmes] and Amy are equals,” our insider noted last week, “but if he had an affair with an underling, that’s a definite case for his firing.
Although Holmes and Robach are currently dating, she was reportedly “blindsided” by “the scope of TJ’s alleged past office romances.”
