Former MAFS Husband Has Fronted Court Over Domestic Violence
A former Married At First Sight and Farmer Wants A Wife contestant has pleaded not guilty to assault an ex-girlfriend.
Lachlan Rose, also known as Lachlan McAleer, who appeared on season one of the Married At First Sight, has denied accusations he choked his former partner.
Kasey Williams is claiming that Mr Rofe attacked her in front of her two-year-old daughter late last year at his property in Cawdor, in Sydney’s south-west.
The court heard that Mr Rofe, who is fighting one count of common assault, had drunk an entire case of beer throughout the day and had begun screaming at his girlfriend chasing her through the house and grabbing her by the neck.
He also reportedly told Ms Williams to “get stuffed, I’m doing it for love”.
Rofe had also allegedly been verbally abusive towards his partner for some months.
However, his lawyers have claimed Ms Williams was extremely jealous he would regularly receive romantic messages from his fans on his Facebook page.
