Stu Laundy has opened up about his split from Sophie Monk, revealing how he found out about their breakup. 

Monk, 38, confirmed that the Bachelorette couple had broken up via Instagram over the weekend, explaining to Australia that despite giving it her “best shot”, they are just “very different people”.

According to Laundy, he too found out about the split from that same post on social media.

“It was Soph’s [decision] — and apart from being so publicly brushed, I have no hard feelings whatsoever,” he told Fitzy and Wippa on their radio show this morning.

“I sort of found out via Instagram, but we both knew in our hearts it was pushing toward a friendship, I think it was a decision we’d both been coming to.”

Giving his own reason for their split, the 44-year-old said they were better off as friends.

Despite the fact that they are no longer together, the father-of-four is adamant that their relationship was real.
“There was definitely love there, there still is. We basically came out of that show and as soon it finished on air we were living together,” he said.
“We had about three to four months of a whirlwind romance. It was very real.”
