During an intense grilling by SAS Australia’s DS (directing staff), Arabella was forced to admit her lies, revealing she had made up the pregnancy to make Josh stay with her, as their relationship was beginning to crumble.
“I have told a lie but you know, the way I see it, a little white lie here or there is not going to hurt anyone,” she said in a piece to camera.
“I’m sure we all do it. I’m not the only person in the whole of Australia who has told a white lie here or there."
Arabella shot to notoriety when she was accused of lying to Josh by faking pregnancies and miscarriages following dalliances with the NRL player, after they met on Instagram in 2018.
Following their first tryst, the SAS Australia contestant claimed she was pregnant with twins. Although Josh wasn’t initially enthusiastic about having children with a woman he just met, he reportedly changed his tune and was looking forward to becoming a father.
Then at 19 weeks, Arabella claimed she had a miscarriage and Josh was left heartbroken.
In March 2019, Arabella again claimed she was pregnant with the pair’s child. Weeks later, she claimed she miscarried once again.
Three months later, Arabella told Josh she was pregnant again and sent him 12-week ultrasound scans. Alarm bells were raised when Josh’s friends told him they were “not a proper scan” and Arabella refused to let him attend any doctor appointments.
On SAS Australia, Arabella admitted to wrongdoing, confessing, “I told my partner that I had a pregnancy scan and I showed it to him and said it was ours when in fact it wasn’t our scan at all.”
