Married At First Sight star Tracey Jewel has revealed she’s “upset” the sexy selfie she sent her ex-Dean Wells has been leaked.
The photo of the 35-year-old — which was sent during the early stages of her romance with now-partner Sean Thomsen — has emerged online, and shows her in racy lingerie and looking seductively into the camera.
While it’s not clear how the Daily Mail Australia got their hands on the private photograph, the mum-of-one has told Be she’s extremely “disappointed and upset it’s public”.
“Dean said it wasn’t him,” she said, adding she didn’t want to “throw around accusations” until she knew the facts.
“But I’m disappointed and upset it’s public.”
The intimate photo of the mum-of-one was reportedly sent to her MAFS husband over the Christmas period, after they split up because he ‘cheated’ on her with fellow contestant Davina Rankin.
While the contents of the messages shared between them have been in the public domain for several months, after New Idea published them, the personal photograph had been kept private.
“I’m surprised it didn’t happen earlier,” Tracey added, commenting on the invasion of her privacy.
Tracey however is determined not to let the latest frenzy around her former flame de-rail her, as she’s set to talk at the Friends With Dignity High Tea event later today in Perth, alongside domestic abuse campaigner Rosie Batty.
Discussing her own experience with family violence, Tracey said she “kept it quiet for years” as she “didn’t know where to turn” in an interview with News.com.au.
“When I look back now, I can see all the warning signs,” she told the publication. “It was my first relationship, so I didn’t have a benchmark compare him to. You can look back on it and think ‘I get it now’.”
