"To be honest, Poppy is a good person and the best of luck to her. I am not going to comment on anything because it is not worth it, it really isn't."
The FIFO worker concluded: "Honestly, she just needs to move on like I have and that is it. We are finished on the show and that is as far as it goes."
Luke echoed a similar sentiment in an interview with the Geelong Advertiser, saying, "The best response is not to respond. There's nothing I want to comment on because there's no point [in] making extra accusations.
“We have seen Poppy’s post and note her distress,” the statement read. "We have reached out to her to offer support and won’t be making any further public comment and will focus on doing our best to support both Poppy and Luke.”
Yesterday, Poppy— who was branded "the most annoying MAFS bride" after she quit the experiment— lifted the lid on what it was really like being married Luke, revealing we didn't see his true colours.
"I was matched with someone who cheated on his wife, didn't live in the same state and wasn't dad of the year by any means," the bride said in a lengthy Facebook rant, calling Luke's character into question. "The experts never met him!!! He was fake on camera and a complete dick behind the scenes! It was infuriating.
"I was uncomfortable with all the things about this person I was matched with that didn't add up. But I was told, 'Poppy, on camera and off camera doesn't exist to the public,'" she said.
The photographer also accused Nine of covering up what happened when the cameras weren't rolling, revealing they claimed her portrayal would be altered if she admitted why she really decided to walk out of the experiment.
"I was so scared I was saying sh*t like, 'this could work' because they [producers] told me Australia was going to f***ing hate me. F**k, I'd probably hate me too! From what I heard that's all they play of me!"
Admitting her honeymoon was four days long but we were only shown six minutes of it, the mother of twin boys said a series of unfortunate and traumatising events occurred during their time away when MAFS showrunners weren't present.
"I couldn't say what was happening behind the scenes as it was too controversial. Why is Luke crying when I left??? Go and ask Luke why I was so uncomfortable????? Why the f**k did I really leave?? He's petrified I am going to talk. He knows he f***ed up. Those tears from him are for his reputation and job!"
She concluded: "He's scared sh**less I will tell the truth. I was afraid to speak up! But f**k this s**t I'm going to tell everything!!! It's not what you see, it's what you don't see!"
