Abbie Chatfield denies her romance with Konrad Bien-Stephens is a ‘PR stunt’ after she was accused of being shady by going public the day before The Bachelorette finale










Abbie Chatfield has responded to an Instagram troll who said her relationship with boyfriend Konrad Bien-Stephens was a ‘nicely curated PR stunt’.

The podcast host, 26, has faced criticism over the past week for debuting her romance with Konrad the day before The Bachelorette season finale.

Konrad, 31, had been a contestant on the Channel 10 dating show, but was sent home a week before Brooke Blurton made her final decision.

Abbie insisted the timing of her relationship announcement wasn’t a ‘stunt’ and that she actually ‘went against PR advice’ by going public when she did.

She told the troll: ‘Thank you. I desperately needed the PR at the height of my career and as we know I LOVE talking about people I’m dating and uploading photos of them.

‘Not like this was a huge decision to be public that actually went against PR advice.’ 

Some have accused Abbie of being shady by going Instagram official with Konrad – a fan favourite from Brooke’s season – on the day before The Bachelorette finale.

Former Bachelorette Angie Kent said it was ‘opportunistic’ and even suggested Abbie was using the show to drum up a ‘media circus’ for her own benefit.

Rumours of a feud emerged after social media sleuths noticed last week Brooke had unfollowed the Love Island Afterparty host on Instagram.

To make things even more awkward, Abbie had appeared in Thursday’s finale of The Bachelorette – which was filmed months ago – as one of Brooke’s ‘best friends’.

Brooke said on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Friday that Abbie and Konrad had ‘tainted the show a little bit’ after their lack of discretion meant their relationship was an open secret for weeks before they confirmed it.

‘I guess because Konrad was such a favourite, the spoilers taint the show a little bit,’ the youth worker told radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson.

‘If people know what the outcome would be, they’re not going to watch the show. And that’s fair enough.’

Kyle asked Brooke if she’d had ‘words’ with Abbie after she was busted kissing the landscaper at a pub in Byron Bay on November 5 – while he was still competing for her heart on national TV.

Brooke admitted she did speak to Abbie and they were able to smooth things over.

‘Isn’t she your mate? Did you ring her and say, “B***h, what is going on here?”‘ Kyle asked.

‘I had that chat. Obviously they’re now dating. We knew they were together and it was a night out. They slipped up,’ she explained.  

‘It was wrong place, wrong time, but we had a chat and it’s all good.’

But the Indigenous beauty kept mum when Jackie mentioned she had unfollowed Abbie on Instagram.

‘Have I? S**t? S**t,’ Brooke said as she desperately tried to sidestep the question.

Abbie has yet to comment on the feud.
