It comes after Stacey Hampton seems to have ignited a bitter feud with her estranged ex-husband condemning him for the nasty way he treated two radio hosts during an on-air spat yesterday morning.
Weighing in on the explosive argument in which the Married At First Sight groom launched a blistering attack on HIT Mid North Coast breakfast show hosts Krysti and Bodge, Stacey said his actions were deplorable.
"It's disgusting to degrade a community like that," the soon-to-be lawyer wrote on Instagram, referring to the moment Michael suggested Bodge should "share a needle with Hayley Vernon".
The successful businessman entered into a fit of rage after Bodge said he'd seen a video showing him hooking up with Hayley. As we know, Michael has been pretty hazy about the events that ensued on their boozy night out, reaffirming he was "too drunk to remember anything".
"I’ve heard a little video is doing the rounds of you and Hayley and it gets released this weekend," the radio star said, clearing geeing Michael up.
"Oh, that’s the rumour everyone keeps telling me. But I’m yet to see the video so I’m not putting any confirmation in that," Micheal hit back, adamant the clip never existed in the first place.
Although Vanessa confirmed on last night's episode that she lied about filming their hook up in an attempt to trap Michael into confessing, he became angry while discussing the scandal on-air and began hurling insults at the hosts.
"Do you know what? I’m going to be completely honest with you because I had another guy from radio try to do this to me yesterday. These are just Kyle Sandilands wannabe shock factors," the irate groom screamed.
"Mate, the only reason you’d have that video, let me tell you Jason from Adelaide, the only reason you’d have that video is because you probably were hanging out ... sharing needles, probably in Elizabeth (a northern suburb just outside of Adelaide). Let me give you the hot tip, that would not surprise me at all if you had that mate."
Sharing needles?" a stunned Bodge asked, clearly taken aback by his foul suggestion.
"You can go absolutely do one," Michael said before hanging up.
Not realising at this point that he'd ended the interview, Bodge hit back saying: "What a dog, Mike. Listen to ya. You little rich boy. Your parents have got you all your wealth and you come on this show and you rag on the fact I’m from Elizabeth. Mate, I love Elizabeth. It’s fantastic.
"He’s gone, he’s gone. He’s hung up. What a piece of work... Stuff him. We don’t need him... What a whiny little b**ch."
The Michael/Hayley cheating scandal has been a huge storyline on this season of MAFS, leaving the castmates divided as more details about that night come to light. Like the fact that Hayley told WHO Michael also tried to hook up with Vanessa.
"We were all very drunk and he was even trying to hook up with Vanessa at one stage," said Hayley, who was forced to leave the experiment after her turbulent relationship with David Cannon reached rock bottom. "He was being a boisterous boy thinking he was some macho man."
She continued: "He has an answer for everything and he doesn't have anything. I don't think he has depth or substance and I don't get along with people who can't own their truth."
Interestingly, Vanessa— who dated last year's MAFS contestant, Bronson Norrish— failed to mention these details when she exposed the cheating scandal to the press on February 17, telling New Idea that the affair took place in her hotel room while the entrepreneur's wife was spending time in Adelaide with her two children.
“Michael walked into our room. He was really drunk and so was Hayley," Vanessa began. "Hayley said, ‘my husband (David) doesn’t want to f--k me’. And I said, ‘mine doesn’t either’. [Michael] turned around and said, ‘I would f--k both of you’. They were fooling around on the bed and dry humping. Shoes were flying everywhere."
