While Matt Agnew and Chelsie McLeod have remained tight-lipped about why their romance didn’t stand the test of time, The Bachelor winner just hinted their split was far from amicable.  

WATCH: Angie Kent weighs in on Matt and Chelsie’s unexpected split

Four days after unexpectedly announcing they were no longer an item, the reality TV star took a thinly veiled swipe at her ex-boyfriend of six months in a shady Instagram post. 

Sharing a photo with her co-stars Nichole Wood, Helena Sauzier and Sogand Mohtat from one of the final episodes of their season, Chelsie captioned the cute snap: “Take the good with the bad.”

While we can’t say for sure, it appears as though the ‘good’ in this situation is the strong friendships she’s made and the ‘bad’ is the fact her romance with the astrophysicist not only fizzled out but ended badly

On Tuesday, last season’s Bachie villain, Rachael Arahill, also took a dig at Matt on social media, hinting Chelsie was blindsided by their breakup. After a fan asked Chelsie on Instagram why they decided to call time on their whirlwind romance, Rachael promptly entered the chat, replying to her comment writing: “So does Chelsie.” 

Rachael— who played a major part in that dog c**t scandal— also inferred Chelsie had “invested” more into their relationship than Matt had… which makes sense considering he’s been travelling abroad in recent months.

Bachelorette star Angie Kent, also hinted these factors contributed to the demise of their romance, confirming during a recent episode of Have You Been Paying Attention? that it’s tough to make it work after the cameras stop rolling. 

Once you get out of the Bachie bubble, it’s up to you then to kind of create a connection and see how it goes,” the 29-year-old said. “It’s hardcore.

Both Rachael and Angie’s comments come after Bachelor runner-up, Abbie Chatfield, broke her silence on their split, quickly shutting down rumours she plans to reconnect with the astrophysicist. 

Taking to Instagram— after fans flocked to the comments section of her latest post asking whether she saw the news coming— the future Bachelor In Paradise star said she “had nothing to do with their relationship”, confirming she ceased all contact with Matt after he dumped her during The Bachelor finale.

“I’ve been tagged in a lot of comments this morning on posts about Matt and Chelsie’s relationship ending. Some of you are saying it’s my shot, others are saying that he’s done a Blake Garvey. None of this is fair on Chelsie, Matt or me,” she wrote in a heartfelt Instagram story.

“My contact with Matt ended when I walked away from him at [the] finale, and I am good friends with Chelsie and love her very much.” 

She concluded her post by asking fans to ease up on the invasive comments, admitting she has no interest in getting involved. 

“These comments are unnecessary and aren’t helping anyone. I have nothing to do with their relationship or their breakup, so I’d appreciate it if I was left out of the conversation. Matt and Chels are great humans and I want them to both be happy.”
