Married At First Sight Australia has back, and things are already getting heated for one groom, who is being lambasted online by his ex-girlfriend.
Jack Dunkley married Tori Adams in the new 2024 season, but he has faced backlash when an ex-girlfriend accused him of’mortifying’ her.
Courtney Jade said the 34-year-old personal trainer left her unexpectedly before filming MAFS in August, which he lied about.
Courtney said she had’met all his family’ and been assured ‘he loves me’ before he abruptly stopped things and left her traumatised before appearing on the show.
In the comments of a post, she wrote: ‘My mental health has suffered due to being completely blindsided and losing my best friend to a reality TV show.
‘Jack has never tried to break up with me and our relationship was becoming quite serious. We spoke regularly about our future together and I don’t believe he is on the show for the right reasons at all.’
Courtney alleged he was dishonest with her about his plans, telling her he was travelling to America for business rather than to Sydney to be on MAFS Australia.
Posting an emotional message on her Instagram, the Aussie added: ‘I have been seeing a therapist and have been medicated due to the disgusting trauma I have experienced and would like to be left alone to heal.
‘It’s one thing to go through a breakup, but it’s another thing to have to relive it on nationwide TV and talk about it.
‘Enjoy watching the fame hungry humans that ruin lives and create nothing but pain. I am embarrassed by the world we live in and am absolutely mortified by my experience.’
According to viewers, Jack is already being portrayed as the show’s villain after claiming there was no sexual spark between himself and Tori during their honeymoon.
In a controversial confessional he said: ‘There’s no sexual sparks flying for me at the moment. I don’t think we’re … well, we’re not sexually connected at all.
‘I’ve got a pretty high sex drive. I need to be invested in the girl. I need to be connected. If I’m not, I’d rather be by myself.’
Despite his doubts, DailyMail Australia revealed the couple were still together over the holidays with her family in Melbourne as Tori shared a picture.
‘They’ve faced a lot of skepticism from the start, but Jack and T have proved everyone wrong,’ a close friend of Tori’s told the publication.
‘Tori is one of the most genuine people you could meet,’ they said. ‘Jack’s really lucky to have her. It’s like he’s won the lottery.’
