"I kept saying to her, 'Why are you asking about Sam for?' and 'What’s it got to do with me?'"
"Things saying that Sam offered to fly me from Brisbane to Sydney are completely false," Jess confirmed.
"I actually didn’t really say anything on the record about Sam and I. So a lot of things that have been written in that article… I’m like well, where’s your quote for that?" Power fumed.
"I think it’s kind of sh*tty."
While the blonde bombshell was quick to explains that some of the statements in the article had truth to them – for example, how she was portrayed on MAFS – she was adamant that she and Sam are definitely not a thing.
"No Sam and I are not dating. Let’s all move on from that topic."
The rumours began a few days ago, after the Daily Mail reported that Sam had been sending 'flirty' text messages to the Married At First Sight star, following his split from wife Phoebe Burgess.
The online publication claimed that the 30-year-old had been chatting to the blonde reality-TV star on Instagram, and that a source revealed the NRL star had been 'bragging' to mates and had tried to 'line up a date'.
On October 27, photos and videos of Sam partying on a yacht in Mexico were leaked.
In the images, Sam was seen celebrating the 50th birthday of NRL star Sean Garlick with his brother and fellow rugby player, Luke Burgess.
On the same day he announced his retirement from NRL, The Daily Telegraph revealed the AVO was upheld against the 30-year-old Rabbitohs forward.
Sam was issued with a temporary apprehended violence order on Saturday, October 19, after a clash with Mitchell in Bowral, with a court listing at Moss Vale on November 9, according to public records.
Sam is thought to have been visiting his children, two-year-old Poppy and 10-month-old Billy, who are believed to have relocated to Bowral with their mother Phoebe after their split.
Mitchell reportedly asked Sam to leave the family's three hectare Glenquarry farm - which Burgess did - but police were called about 5pm.
