Married at First Sight Australia‘s Amanda Micallef has been charged with distributing intimate images and videos.
As reported in episode 154 of the So Dramatic! podcast, the reality star was charged on February 23 and will face court on March 16, according to a statement made to So Dramatic! by Queensland Police.
Along with the charges, Amanda was issued with an interim Apprehended Violence Order on behalf of the alleged victim of the claimed assault.
The charge — which is commonly known as ‘revenge porn’ — sits under Section 223 of the Criminal Code Act, stating that it is “an offence to distribute intimate images of a person without the person’s permission in a way that could cause the person distress.”
According to the act, ‘intimate images’ is defined as “a moving or still image that depicts: a person engaged in a sexual act, the genital or anal region when is is bare or covered only by underwear, the bare breasts of a female, and an image that has been altered to appear to show any of the above.”
The maximum penalty for this offence is three years imprisonment if found guilty.
What Images and Videos Did Amanda Micallef Release?
While we do not know which images and videos Amanda has been charged with distributing, she has recently been sharing content on her OnlyFans account which were graphic and sexual in nature. The footage involved a number of people including an ex-partner.
Since it was on the closed platform, to gain access to the footage, you would need to pay for it, however, So Dramatic! has been told that the content has since been removed.
So Dramatic! understands that Amanda was charging upwards of $150 to gain access to each video behind the paywall.
The matter is currently before the courts.
More to come.
