'Stop Writing S**t Like This': Abbie Chatfield Slams 'Completely False' Reports She's Dating Matt Agnew
Another day, another fake news story following the breakup of Bachelor Matt Agnew and Chelsie McLeod.
Months after their romantic declarations of love on 'The Bachelor', Matt posted to Instagram that the pair had split.
Writing "it's no one's fault, it's just life," Matt wrote that his relationship with Chelsie "hadn't translated from filming to the real, everyday world" as the pair had hoped.
Almost immediately after Matt posted his statement, fans were tagging Abbie Chatfield in the comments saying it was "her chance" or assuming that the astrophysicist had attempted to rekindle his relationship with Abbie.
Acknowledging that she and Matt hadn't been in contact since the filming of the finale, Abbie asked to stop being tagged in posts about Matt and Chelsie's relationship.
Unfortunately for Abbie, that was short-lived.
Posting to her Instagram story, Abbie shared a screenshot of an article claiming Matt had 'moved on' with her following his split.
The story quoted "a source" and claimed that rumours were swirling the pair had gotten back together.
"This is completely false," Abbie wrote.
"Stop writing s**t like this and driving forward the narrative that I'm a 'home wrecker' or a 'man stealer' because it makes people click and hate me more," she added.
This also isn't the first time Abbie has hit back at media, after repeatedly being body-shamed and slut-shamed for ridiculous reasons like posting pics in a swimsuit... at the beach.
"Body shaming, slut shaming, sexism," she captioned an Instagram post back in October.
"How the F**K are people supposed to love themselves when people in the public eye of ALL sizes are being ridiculed for having normal bodies," Abbie wrote.
"I am at the end of my tether with this. STOP commenting on women’s bodies and debating whether or not we are ~allowed~ to wear bikinis. It isn’t your place. I’m a 24 year old who is healthy, happy and comfortable. Why does that irritate people?"
