Ever since Jessika Power's break up, there’s been some unusual Instagram activity.


To catch up on all the Married at First Sight 2019 recaps and gossip, check out the Twins recaps and visit our MAFS hub page.

Yesterday, it was confirmed that MAFS’ Dan Webb and Jessika Power are done. Kaput. Over.

In an exclusive interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Dan officially and publicly put their breakup on the public record, after rife speculation in light of their very tense interview on Talking Married.

“So after Talking Married, as soon as the cameras cut, Jess stormed off. She was pretty broken. She was very upset,” Dan said in the video, adding that he regrets “ever meeting Jess”.

“We just spoke and I was just honest with her. I said, ‘Look I don’t think I can continue this. It’s toxic, you’re not being honest with me. I can’t have a relationship with someone if they’re not honest with me.’

“She just wasn’t being honest.”

And with that, one of this season’s most controversial couples was over.

Watch the very awkward interview that aired on Monday night. Post continues.

But even more interesting right now is the weird activity that’s currently happening on Jess’ Instagram, and we need to have a chat. Yes, Jess is probably feeling a little delicate right now post-breakup, but she clearly would also like the world to know that she is single and doing just fine.

First things first, are Emilee Hembrow and Jessika Power friends?

We had no idea that Jess and Instagram influencer (and sister of Tammy Hembrow), Emilee Hembrow were friends.

The two women were spotted at the first birthday celebrations of Nineteen at The Star where they both appeared on each other’s Instagram stories.

Vital information, we know.

Thank u, next (indeed)

The timing of this post was suspicious.

Shared the day before Dan's interview, the passive aggressive subtext is delicious.

While it may look like Jess is promoting a collaboration with Dirty Thirty cosmetics, something needs to be said about her choice in caption - "thank you, next".

This is of course a reference to Ariana Grande's now-iconic break up song, because she is now a single gal and would like everyone to know.

Dan... are you listening?

We also need to talk about Jess' Instagram stories.

This is classic relaunch behaviour. For those unaware, it's the process some women go through post-breakup, in which they share a fantastically flattering photo of themselves, normally posted on Instagram.

It communicates to the world at large that they are single and available, it's very effective and Jess knows this.

Allow us to present to you a water-tight case:

Hi, it's me looking amazing and having so much fun with my friends. Image: Instagram.
Candid, but make it casually seductive. Image: Instagram.
*Jess to Jess* I'm just a single girl, dancing by myself and owning it. Image: Instagram.

Good for her, we say.

Dan's mum would also like to add in her two cents.

Hmmmm. It seems like there's some unresolved tension between Jess and Dan's mum, Gabby Smith and we are here for it.

Sharing his video with Yahoo Lifestyle, she captioned her Instagram post cryptically with, "The real truth, Yahoo Lifestyle, watch it."


Now if someone could arrange a tell-all interview with Gabby, that would be fantastic.
