While Stacey is trying hard to deflect, the rest of Australia is extremely focused on the cheating scandal that ruined her marriage to Michael Goonan. All hell broke loose and a war of words subsequently ensued on Tuesday night when she fought with Mikey Pembroke about his accusations they hooked up. Despite the fact there was mounting evidence that proved she did the dirty on her partner, Mikey proved his innocence once and for all, exposing Stacey as a liar.
According to Yahoo, the affable groom was cleared of lying by the highly trained polygraph operator, scoring far above the standard number for truthful answers. After four hours of rigorous questioning, the polygraph expert said: "It is my opinion that you are in fact being truthful to that issue. There was no strong emotional responses indicative of deception to the declaration."
Mikey scored an average of 10 on each answer— a truthful answer should be three or more meaning he more than tripled the required criteria.
Expectedly, Michael has since taken Mikey's side over the woman he fell in love with, revealing yesterday that he wants nothing to do with her.
"She did it, mate. There's a full lie detector test," the party boy said during an interview with Nova's Fitzy and Wippa. "I can forgive someone that’s telling me the truth and I can have their back to the bitter end. But what I can't do is have is someone sit there and blatantly lie straight to my face."
During the chat, the single dad also explained why he was strangely calm when confronted with news of his wife's affair, saying he needed to hear both sides of the story before forming his final opinion.
“Look when you’ve been confronted with a story like that, the first thing you have to do is make sure your story is in line. If there’s any gaps or holes, you’re a liar. So you see me quite clearly say 'Is there any text messages?'
"She said, 'No, no, no, there's no text messages'. Then the phone comes out full of text messages. I can help you in a sinking canoe but I can’t just keep shovelling buckets of water out for you, I’m sorry you’ve gone down on this one."
So what happened after the dinner party wrapped and the cameras stopped rolling? Michael told Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny that he tried to chat with Stacey about these damaging allegations, however, she'd dug a hole too deep to claw her way out of.
"She continued to tell me it never happened. I said there was too much doubt for me to continue in this catastrophe so let’s just have a hug and I’ll see you later," he said. "But she said she didn't want to hug me... At the end of the day, I should be the one sort of stamping my feet and saying that I'm the victim."
