Since splitting up with his MAFS wifey Belinda Vickers in July, Patrick and Jo have been spending lots of time together.
Which is a bit naughty considering Belinda and Jo used to be besties!
In the latest chapter of this faux romance, Patrick posted a snap of Jo drinking wine on a balcony on his Instagram story, captioned: “My heart is full”.
The personal trainer first sent the rumour mill into a spin when he shared a selfie of himself and the barber in September.
The pair appeared very comfortable with each other as they smiled for the camera beneath a string of love heart emojis — which as we all know, is social media-speak for “loved up”.
Either they’re trolling us BIG TIME, or Patrick has no concept of how to ‘soft launch’ a new relationship on social media.
Ex-Married at First Sight Stars Also Think Its A Rouse
Lucky for us, we got ahold of some fellow MAFS 2021 alumni to see if they have any insight on this bonkers new (fake) couple.
“It’s pathetic,” one of their former co-stars told So Dramatic! on Wednesday. “They are not dating at all. They are faking a romance for the media. It’s embarrassing.”
Another co-star said: “They are 100% trolling us for publicity. They want everyone to write articles about them to stay relevant. How much more desperate could you get?” Ouch!
As discussed on episode 101 of So Dramatic! With Megan Pustetto, we also did some investigating back in September to find out WTF is going on between Patrick and Jo.
“Given [Jo] was so close with Bel it is kinda weird that she’s hanging out with Patrick after them breaking up,” one former contestant said, adding: “ Even if they are just friends.”
Another firmly agreed that the pair are “100 per cent” taking the piss.
“I think Jo and Patrick are doing it for publicity, so don’t give them any,” they said. LOL!
Patrick’s Homage To His MAFS Wife
Adding more fuel to the fame-hungry fire was Patrick’s bizarre homage to Belinda in September.
Taking to Instagram, he posted an image of him and the 30-year-old in commemoration of their faux wedding anniversary.
“On this day last year we got Married on National TV,” he penned to his 62,700 followers. “Bring on the future with you.”
Underneath the tongue-in-cheek post, Jo commented: “Are you cheating on me?”
Make it make sense!
