Konrad Bien-Stephen has reportedly been telling his The Challenge Australia co-stars that he was “friend-zoned” by his girlfriend, Abbie Chatfield.
A source previously told So Dramatic! that the pair were “avoiding each other like ships in the night” before Konrad jetted off to Argentina for his next reality stint.
Fans then lost their collective sh*t after the Daily Mail Australia confirmed their breakup.
While Abbie and Konrad are yet to comment on their relationship status, the publication has since dished even more dirt.
Apparently, an insider from The Challenge claimed that The Bachelorette 2021 star has been telling people that he and Abbie have been “done for a while”.
“Konrad was telling everyone on set that Abbie had stopped answering his calls and texts weeks before he jetted overseas,” they said on August 30.
The 31-year-old reportedly “doesn’t know where he stands” with his bae.
The insider continued: “She was telling him she wants to focus on her career and doesn’t have time to spend with him.
“She sort of just friend-zoned him before he was due to start filming.”
News of the couple’s Year Seven-esque antics come after rumours that Konrad was knocking boots with fellow Bachie alum Megan Marx.
The duo were both residing in Buenos Aires while they filmed Paramount+’s new reality start-studded series.
What Has Been Said About Konrad Bien-Stephen and Megan Marx?
According to the Daily Mail, “the drama is insane” on The Challenge set.
Konrad is sleeping with Megan [Marx],” an insider revealed to the outlet. “Konrad said he was single, and his relationship with Abbie was over because she broke up with him.”
“On the first night of filming, he hooked up with Megan. I didn’t know what was happening,” they confessed.
However, they added it was “extremely awkward” as “he was all over her the second [they] started filming”.
“It was like he was trying to make Brooke [Blurton] jealous because she was there too.”
Now, this tidbit was made all the more interesting because fans were convinced Megan was still with her boyfriend, Keith Newman. However, it’s since been revealed that the pair split some time ago.
Abbie Chatfield Addressed Breakup Rumours
After rumours of Abbie and Konrad’s breakup ran rampant, the It’s a Lot podcaster commented on the matter.
Taking to her Instagram Story, she said she’s “seen the articles about Konrad”.
“He’s out of the country, so I won’t be commenting on anything until he’s home,” she penned.
“Can every one [sic] not be so dramatic pls and relax… Both of us are totally okay.”
She then asked that the “paparazzi get their daily pic” of her “picking up dog poo” and leave her to “get a coffee in peace”.
