Still-suspended ‘GMA3’ co-host TJ Holmes has been accused of allegedly having antics in the office with another junior staff member.
A source exclusively tells Page Six that 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, with whom he allegedly had sex in his desk.
We’ve chosen not to release the second woman’s identity at this time, and she has yet to respond to our numerous requests for comment.
However, our source tells us that she was around 24 or 25 at the time of the alleged connection, working as an associate producer overnight.
Holmes and the staffer, who we are told are no longer at ABC, were reportedly in his office after 3 a.m. with the door locked.
We’re told “a bunch of rustling” could be heard and the woman emerged “completely flush” and like “a deer in the headlights”.
While our source isn’t sure if the staffer ever reported the alleged encounter to HR, they described Holmes, now 45, as being “in a position of power over her.”
When asked if they thought Holmes was abusing said power at the time, our source replied, “I should think so, yes.”
“I think it was like, ‘Here’s this beautiful young girl, and she’s here in my office, let me make a move,’ sort of,” our source said, describing the situation as “similar.” to that of Pettaway. .
Representatives for Holmes and ABC did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.
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” – only 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 and had “no idea” of “the extent of the alleged romances spent at TJ’s office.”
