Married at First Sight Australia 2022’s Jackson Lonie reckons he didn’t “abandon” his ex-girlfriend Olivia Frazer during their breakup because of the online trolling they endured.

Jackson and Olivia’s split came after 10 tumultuous months of dating, which included a shocking cheating scandal and them both receiving brutal hate comments.

Now, the former plumber — who has reportedly already moved on to a new lass — insisted during a Q&A on his Instagram Story that they didn’t break up because of the continuous online vitriol.

Jackson had been asked whether he had “abandoned” Olivia because of the “hate she was getting”.

“Splitting up with someone isn’t abandoning them,” Jackson said. “Us splitting had nothing to do with the haters… We had just drifted apart.”

Olivia Frazer Slammed Suggestions That Jackson Lonie “Dumped” Her

It comes after Olivia took to Instagram on August 31 (before she was banned from sharing to her Story) to shut down any speculation around the mutual break-up.

“I understand people like to think that I got ‘dumped’, but it wasn’t like that at all,” Olivia said before reaffirming once again that the controversial duo “split amicably“.

She continued: “We’re adults. We had an adult conversation about how the relationship wasn’t working for either of us and we both came to the resolution that splitting up with the only thing left to do.

“There’s no ‘juicy’ story. There’s no truth to the ‘haha he dumped you’ comments people say. It was a peaceful, joint decision,” she added.

Are Olivia Frazer and Jackson Lonie Already Back on the Dating Scene?

The reality TV “villain” seemingly confirmed that her ex-boyfie is already playing the field.

He was spotted participating in a “blind” speed-dating segment at the Where’s Your Head At? podcast live show (the same night at Olivia’s Insta Q&A).

“It’s absolutely none of my business. Just like what I’m up to is none of his. I’d hope she was nice, though,” she said.

Jackson was pulled onstage at the Where’s Your Head At? podcast live show on August 31, and shed some light on his new(ish) single status.

In a video provided to So Dramatic!, Jackson said it’s been “just a little over a month” since he and Olivia called it quits, which is particularly interesting considering they didn’t announce their breakup until August 8.
