The insight comes days after a source claimed Matt was "contractually obliged" to pick Chelsie during the final rose ceremony, hence why they announced their split so soon after the show played out on our screens.
According to the clued-up spy, Matt knew from the get-go that he didn't intend to choose any of the women vying for his heart, however, a strict clause in his Network 10 contract prevented him from pulling a Honey Badger.
“He wanted to choose no-one, but obviously it was in his contract that he had to choose someone, so producers pushed him to pick Chelsie because she was the safe bet. If it happened two years in a row, the whole franchise would be done," the spy told the outlet.
While Chelsie is yet to comment on whether these rumours are true, she unexpectedly opened up about the demise of their relationship last week, admitting she's still heartbroken.
"It's definitely been rough," a tearful Chelsie told her Instagram followers during an Instagram Q&A last night. "I do not deal with heartbreak well and yeah, my heart is broken. This sucks."
As for why Matt decided to call time on their romance just six months after filming wrapped, Chelsie said she plans to keep the details private.
In spite of this, she hinted their love for one another eventually fizzled out, with the transition into the real world taking a toll on their relationship. Yep, exactly what the first source said!
"A lot of you want to know what happened between Matt and I. I am going to respect his privacy and not go into details," the chemical engineer continued. "It's a hard situation and it takes two strong people with a strong connection to get through stages from filming to the end."
With rumours swirling reality star Chels was blindsided by Matt's decision to end thing so suddenly, she confirmed this was definitely a reality.
When one fan questioned whether the breakup was mutual, instead of answering the inquiry with a video message as she did before, she posted a photo of a young girl's face— which became a viral meme a few months ago— giving the side-eye and looking confused.
She later revealed she's never been able to break up with someone, "even if they're horrible" and the relationship is toxic.
