Married At First Sight groom Nathanial Valentino brands co-star ‘manipulator’ and ‘fake’ amid feud

Married At First Sight groom Nathanial Valentino brands co-star ‘manipulator’ and ‘fake’ amid feud

He took to Instagram to share a piece of his mind

I'm sure absolutely no one is even the slightest bit surprised that we've got even more Married at First Sight drama on our hands.

Armchair critics all over have been tuning in to watch the chaos-filled eighth season of Channel 4's hit reality dating show with all the scandals, surprises and bombshell revelations that come with it.

And the latest MAFS drama sees the likes of groom Nathanial Valentino brand his co-star a 'manipulator' and 'fake' amidst a pretty heated feud.

Now, in case you're after some context, Nathanial, a 36-year-old events manager, was coupled up with Ell Morgan a, a 29-year-old nurse and MAFS' first ever transgender participant on the programme

He later quit the show and claimed that the production actively tried to create conflict between partners, as well as ignoring their preferences when choosing a partner.

Before his departure from the programme, it appeared like Nathanial and Laura Vaughan, who recently called it quits with 34-year-old tennis coach, Arthur Poremba, after a 'brutal' dumping during their final vow renewal ceremony, were fairly close.

However, that now seems to be far from the case, with Nathanial taking to Instagram to address the current state of their friendship - or lack of.

He has since taken to his story to open up about the situation to his 79.4k followers, writing: "I've had hundreds of messages asking about this.

"I'm not gonna spread hate and REVEAL why I don't f*ck with Laura, all you need to look at is that none of her closest friends on the show F*CK with her."

Nathanial then added in a snake emoji along with the hashtags 'manipulator' and 'fake' before finishing the post off with: "This is the last time I will talk about it.

"Useless. She want to try plugging more stories [sic] to be relevant."

Nathanial's comments come after Laura had previously opened up during an Instagram Q&A about why she no longer to spoke to him.

The 34-year-old finance manager explained: "In all honesty, I don't really know. Difference of opinion mainly.

"There's no malice there at all from me. Sometimes these things happen."

Laura added: "I wish him nothing but the best for the future, but we aren't friends and that's fine."

Well, according to Nathanial's recent comments, it appears that he doesn't quite hold the same sentiments as his co-star.

Tyla has contacted Laura's reps for comment.
