Married At First Sight Australia‘s Tracey Jewel and Sean Thomsen are over.
The 35-year-old motivational author revealed she and the 34-year-old FIFO worker broke up after five months of dating in a new interview with New Idea.
“Because he’s FIFO, he’s not always here and with that lifestyle there’s no stability,” the Perth-based single mum told the mag, adding that she broke up with him at the airport in Perth after he’d been away for a week in the mines.
“It was brutal. Because he works away and I’ve been away a lot, I had to wait until when I picked him up from the airport and I just told him straight away. I couldn’t even wait for him to get into the frigging car.”
The pair still attended the Royal Queensberry Championship together at Perth’s Crown Towers on May 11.
“Oh what a night,” Sean captioned a pic of the former couple posing with others at the event.
He has yet to publicly address the breakup.
Tracey, who was originally partnered with Dean Wells on MAFS, also admitted she may get back together with her reality TV “husband”.
“The way me and Dean ended things, you never say never. Some couples can take a break and have some space and come back,” she told New Idea. “I’m ready and I know what I want.”
Tracey broke up with Dean, much to his surprise, during MAFS‘ final vow renewal ceremony. She and Sean then went public with their relationship during the Season 5 reunion special, taped in January.
And they weren’t the only Season 5 couple to do a co-star partner swap – Troy Delmege and Carly Bowyer became an item after respectively ending things with Ashley Irvin and Justin Fischer.
But if their Bali holiday snaps are any indication, Troy and Carly are still going strong.
“Looks like @troydelmege will need to up his cuddle game tonight,” Carly captioned a pic May 11 after returning from their tropical getaway to chilly Melbourne.
