Would it really be Married At First Sight without a bit of cheating involved..?
Following news that Hayley and Michael both cheated on their partners and got together throughout filming, comes news that Michael’s actual on-screen wife Stacey Hampton has a cheating scandal of her own!
It’s been rumoured that Stacey gets together with one of the other grooms on the show, Mikey Pembroke after some pretty suggestive text messages between the pair were leaked.
And now it seems that Mikey is confirming the news himself!
In an interview with News.com.au Mikey confirmed that he and Stacey slept together but says that it occurred at a time when things were basically already over between him and his onscreen wife Natasha.
“I can confirm we did have sex, but it was clearly after Natasha and I had agreed with producers that our relationship was over, and Natasha knew we weren’t together,” Mikey reportedly told the publication.
“I actually didn’t want this [story] out as it’s not the best way to end my time on the show, but it did happen.”
Stacey on the other hand is completely denying the affair, telling New Idea that she wouldn’t cheat on her onscreen hubby Michael Goonan (despite the fact he cheats on her…).
“Nothing happened between Mikey Pembroke and I. No sexual relations. Nothing. I can guarantee that. And I can sit here and swear on anything,” she reportedly said to New Idea.
“I understand where the rumours came from. We did share coffee and we did hang out,” she continued. “I swear that Mikey and I have never shared any sexual intimacy.”
It comes after New Idea obtained leaked text messages allegedly between Mikey and Stacey that showed them speaking about meeting up and saying that the show’s executive producer was trying to keep them away from each other.
