MAFS' Martha & Michael Announce They've Broken Up Via Text, But Some Ppl Reckon It Could Be A Sponcon Stunt
UPDATE 8/4/20: Turns out the 'breakup' was a PR stunt after all. More on Martha and Michael and their bizarre sponcon deal here.
Days after sharing updates on their quarantine life together, and weeks after celebrating their anniversary, it appears as if Married At First Sight’s Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli have called it quits.
Last night, Kalifatidis shared to Insta text messages of their breakup convo, in which Brunelli tries to reason with Kalifatidis, but she isn’t having a bar of it.
“I’ve tried over and over again to communicate but you know it never eventuates to anything,” he writes. “How many times can one person pick up the phone to figure out a problem and not get a response??”
Kalifatidis, who just last week was in Brunelli’s Insta stories as they did an outdoor couples’ workout in Bondi, texted back that she was “fkn done!!!!” and was “upgrading”.
The convo went on with Brunelli in disbelief, asking Kalifatidis “Is this a joke?” to which she answered: “I need better support I want a better connection”.
Then, if that wasn’t enough airing of dirty laundry for one night, Kalifatidis later hopped on Insta stories to talk us through more of their breakup deets: “I am just getting into bed – I’ve got the whole bed to myself which I’m really excited about,” she said.
“Just wanted to come on here and be like, since we’ve been spending so much time at home and we can’t leave, so much sh*t has come to attention.”
She later added: “You think you sign up for one thing, and you get another”.
OK, so here’s the plot twist though: some super fans picked up that some of the expressions Kalifatidis used – “better connection”, “I’m upgrading” and “you think you sign up for one thing, and you get another” – sound like she’s actually talking about a phone plan?! Which could indicate the two signed a marketing deal to promote a phone plan and this whole thing is a ploy to... get publicity.
If that’s the case, we gotta say, it’s probably not in the best taste to drop this in the midst of a global pandemic. But if it’s not, and they did in fact breakup after all (we have our doubts), then we wish them both the best. Time will tell.
