Vanessa rose to fame after fans discovered she was dating Jessika Power's brother, Rhyce. While the tradie— who appeared on a few episodes of Married At First Sight— has since moved on with Tamara Joy, controversy continues to surround the former couple.
Two months ago, the 24-year-old opened up about her romance with Rhyce, revealing she called time on their relationship after he allegedly assaulted her at a fitness camp in Thailand.
As previously reported, Vanessa cut the trip short and headed back to Australia to file for an intervention order. Under the Victorian intervention order, which is similar to an apprehended violence order (AVO), the Perth-based carpenter is banned from contacting Vanessa.
She spoke about the reported abuse on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself with what appeared to be a black eye.
"7 days of isolation and I’m back to myself again. Those closest to me already know what happened. This was taken the day I left and it does not even hint the extent of what I went through."
Vanessa continued: "Domestic violence isn’t a f****ing joke, so here is (literally) a taste of your own medicine. On a completely separate note, @rhyce_power how is Thailand?"
Rhyce later denied the allegations in a lengthy Instagram post back in April.
"There's always two sides to every story, and everyone needs to believe that," he said. "Everyone's jumped on the bandwagon without even hearing my side of the story - which I understand - if a girl makes an allegation about a claim [sic], whether it's an attractive girl or any girl, everyone's going to jump on the bandwagon, and I fully understand that."
