Abbie Chatfield breaks silence on alleged split from Konrad Bien-Stephen

Abbie Chatfield has spoken out and addressed the rumours that she and her partner Konrad Bien-Stephen have called it quits.

It was reported on Monday that the pair, who have been in an open relationship since November last year, had broken up before Konrad left to film Channel Ten’s upcoming reality TV series The Challenge in Argentina earlier this month.

According to Daily Mail, Konrad told his co-stars that he was newly single before he “hooked up” with fellow Bachelor star Megan Marx on the first night of filming.

“Oh, my gosh! The drama is insane. Konrad is sleeping with Megan [Marx],” an insider told the publication.

“Konrad said he was single and his relationship with Abbie was over because she broke up with him.”


The source went on to claim that Konrad, who rose to fame as a contestant on Brooke Blurton’s season of The Bachelorette last year, couldn’t keep his hands off Megan during the show.

“It was awkward because he was all over her the second we started filming. It was like he was trying to make Brooke [Blurton] jealous because she was there too,” they continued.

Abbie’s response

A few hours after the reports emerged, Abbie took to her Instagram Story to say that she wouldn’t be commenting on their relationship status until Konrad returns from Argentina.

“Hey! I've seen the articles about Konrad,” she began.

“He's out of the country so l won't be commenting on anything until he's home. Can everyone not be so dramatic please and relax? Both of us are totally okay.

“And can the paparazzi get their daily pic of me picking up dog poo then let me get a coffee in peace also?”

Abbie and Konrad’s open relationship

Abbie and Konrad first started dating in November last year and announced that they were in an open relationship back in February, explaining that they were “open sexually but not emotionally”.

The “basic rules” detailed that they couldn’t sleep with someone that they’d had sex with before, they couldn’t sleep with their friends, and they couldn’t sleep with the same person more than once unless they spoke about it beforehand.

Konrad said at the time that he felt “confident” about the evolution of their relationship because he was “still in love and obsessed” with Abbie after having sex with someone else.

Meanwhile, Abbie confirmed in June that she had “finally” slept with someone other than Konrad for the first time in their relationship.

“I finally rooted someone which is nice, good for me. I mean, it was nice that's all I'm going to say,” she said on her podcast.

“I'm not going to give any more details than that because I'm panicked about what I'm going to say.”
