MAFS' Beck Zemek takes swipe at Jake as she confirms new romance

Married at First Sight star Beck Zemek has put her time on the show - and THAT cheating scandal - behind her, and publicly confirmed she has found love.

The 27-year-old shared a loved-up photo of herself kissing her beau Ben Michell on Friday, also taking the opportunity to include a not-so-subtle swipe at her former MAFS groom Jake Edwards.

"No tattoos, just love," Beck captioned the snap, referencing the matching tattoo Jake got with his now ex-girlfriend, fitness influencer Sophie Guidolin.

Rebecca and Ben reportedly first started dating back in June 2020, prior to her appearance on the show, and recently reconnected.


Though some of the comments on social media suggest, they remained close while she was on the show and he was the one Beck was seen kissing during the reality show's explosive finale.

Jack and Sophie first in March and started dating weeks later, though they had to keep their relationship under wraps until the show ended.

Jack's 'awkward' tattoo before split

The couple went public in April, with Jake revealing he was 'head over heels' for the mum-of-four, even saying marriage and more kids were on the cards.

In an interview with Confidential he said, "One of the conversations we had early, within 10 minutes I said to her I wouldn’t waste any time … we both want kids together."

Sophie then told listeners of her Flourish & Fulfilled podcast (in an episode that has now been deleted) that Jake had surprised her by getting her name tattooed on his body.

Sadly, and a little awkwardly, the pair split just weeks later.

The exact reason behind Jake and Sophie's split is unclear, though Sophie shed some light on the situation in a reply to a fan on Instagram, writing: "His values and character certainly do not align with my own and I wish him all the best to get the help he needs."

Jake is still following Sophie on Instagram and has kept photos of the former couple on his page, while Sophie has unfollowed and deleted all photos of Jake from her account. It's believed Jake has now also moved back to Melbourne.

Mel Greig now 'mixed up' in Jake and Sophie split

In a rather bizarre turn of events, it seems radio host Mel Greig has also somehow become mixed up in the post MAFS drama and Jake/Sophie split, taking to her own Instagram to defend her 'friend' Jake.

In an Instagram post shared by The Wash, Mel wrote: "Given I'm apparently involved in the break up I'm going to share a few words.

"Sophie is not comfortable with Jake and I being friends and being in contact. Jake and I have a very platonic friendship that evolves around our mental health work... Sophie felt uncomfortable with our friendship and felt that Jake was crossing boundaries and being disrespectful.

"I contacted her to try and understand what I could do to help but my messages have gone unanswered.

"I'm actually sick of seeing my friend smashed. I understand cheating and deceitful behaviour and I'm not saying Jake is perfect. But he is not a monster."
