Abbie Chatfield has publicly addressed her rumoured breakup from boyfriend Konrad Bien-Stephen for the first time, confirming speculation they have indeed split.

The pair sent fans into a tizzy after it appeared they’d broken up ahead of Konrad travelling to Argentina to film The Challenge Australia before reportedly hooking up with Megan Marx on set.

At the time, Abbie took to Instagram to address the rumours; however, she told all the nosy nellies that she “won’t be commenting on anything until [Konrad] is home”.

On September 3, Abbie shared a Story on Instagram — one day after Konrad returned from filming — with the former Bachelor Australia star confirming that the pair split “months ago.”

“There has been obviously a lot of speculation about my relationship and a lot of articles and rumours and everything. I guess I just want to confirm that, yeah, Konrad and I are broken up,” she admitted.

“We’ve been broken up for a couple of months now. No one did anything bad or awful… There’s no drama to it.”

The Masked Singer Australia judge then clarified that the breakup was not a result of the couple being in an open relationship.

“Nothing bad happened. Please don’t write articles saying it was because we were in an open relationship. It wasn’t.”

Abbie Chatfield Wasn’t Sure If She Was Going to “Confirm” the Breakup

Even though there has been a lot of guesswork surrounding their relationship, Abbie told fans she wasn’t sure she was going to confirm the breakup.

“I feel like articles will just keep being written, and people will keep DMing me and commenting on my sh*t, and it’s really annoying and f*cking weird, to be honest because I don’t really owe any of you an explanation.

“I feel like usually when people in the public eye break up, people will be like, ‘but you’ve made your brand your relationship.’ I intentionally didn’t do that.

“So yeah, anyway, I just wanted to end it and just be able to be like, ‘yes, we’re broken up; it happened a few months ago,” she said.

Even though she didn’t initially comment, Abbie assured fans that she wasn’t being “deceitful” by not telling people and said there was a reason for the “delay” in her announcement.

Abbie Chatfield Hinted that She Is Already Dating

Abbie confirmed that Konrad was no longer living with her and even hinted she might be seeing someone new.

“I just didn’t want to be caught by paparazzi seeing someone else,” she explained. “If I go on a date with someone else, I don’t want there to be f*cking paparazzi waiting in f*cking Double Bay. Maybe I’ll see someone else.

“We’re broken up; it’s not a secret, it’s not anything bad, it isn’t anything dramatic, it’s just what it is.”

Abbie Revealed the Breakup was “Amicable”

“I know I seem cold, but it has been a couple of months. We broke up, and it was amicable, and it was fine,” she said before asking her legion of fans not to DM her or come up to her in person and ask why.

“Nothing bad happened; I am just not going to tell you because you’re a f*cking stranger.”

“We dated for 1o-months, it was great, and then we broke up for pretty normal reasons.

“If you see me in person and you ask me anything about my personal life that I haven’t shared with the general public, I reserve the right to be quite rude to you… just so you know.”

Abbie Chatfield Refers to Konrad Bien-Stephen as Her “Ex-Boyfriend”

During the August 31 broadcast of her Hot Nights with Abbie Chatfield radio show, the media personality referred to Konrad as her “ex-boyfriend”.

Sliding into So Dramatic!‘s DMs, a listener of Abbie’s Hot Nights With Abbie Chatfield radio show said the topic came up during the August 31 broadcast.

“I noticed Abbie referred to Konrad as her ex on her radio show,” they revealed.

“She was talking about an ex-boyfriend and said, ‘Not Konrad, my other ex, Scottish ex’. Something along those lines.” So we guess there’s our confirmation!

The listener said she was confused about whether she “missed something” due to Abbie’s previous declaration that she’d stay mum until Konrad was back in Australia.

However, she “definitely said ‘my other ex’,” they added.

A Source Told So Dramatic! That Abbie and Konrad “Split Several Weeks Ago”

The loose-lipped comment comes after a source told So Dramatic! that the duo amicably split several weeks ago.

“They were living apart before Konrad went to film The Challenge,” the insider said. “They were avoiding each other like ships in the night, which wasn’t that hard because of how busy Abbie is anyway.”

The source added that “they didn’t see each other much anyway”, which echoes The Masked Singer Australia judge’s sentiment in a recent interview with Stellar.

“Maybe two days a week,” she told the publication in July.

What Did Konrad Bien-Stephen Tell People About His Relationship?

The Daily Mail then solidified the speculation after an insider from The Challenge claimed that the reality beau had been telling people that he and Abbie have been “done for a while” and that she’d “friend-zoned” him.

“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.

At the time, the 31-year-old reportedly “[didn’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.

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 was insane” on The Challenge set.

“Konrad was sleeping with Megan [Marx],” an insider told 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.”
