'You're still trying to play the nice guy.' MAFS' Martha shares her private texts with Nic.

As Cyrell Paule left Married at First Sight last night, she reassured Nic Jovanovic, and the audience, that he truly was a really good guy.

Just… not the guy for her.

But now Martha Kalifatidis, aka Jessika Power’s BFF, has claimed Nic is not the “nice guy” we all think he is.

Posting to her Instagram story, the 30-year-old began by sharing an image of “explosive texts” between Cyrell and Nic from a tabloid.

The texts read as follows:

Nic: “I did the right thing. Shut it down. Have a goodnight [sic]”. 

Cyrell: “Yup! Real hero thanks for letting me know in the first place! U R f**cked! All the game least now I got the proof” 

Nic: Go away. Read the messages. I did nothing wront [sic].” 

Cyrell: Hmm funny yet even Mick said the elevator incident was real… Here I was getting into cat fights because of U… Piece of sh*t! U were always flirting with her in the first place! I never should of defend U! N Martha was never lying! U R a f**cking liar! Good luck”

So. A few things to take from this.

  1. If these texts are ~legit~ then Cyrell and Nic are not on good terms after all.

Martha followed up the photo with a screenshot of some of her DMs with Nic, in which Nic appears to be... keeping the peace... like a... good guy.

The texts read as follows:

Nic: Way to tear shreds in that interview 

Martha: Pfffft Fuq off 

Nic: Haha 

Martha: Did u deleted your other comment.... Fkn pussy!!!!!! 

Nic: It said what did I do to you

Martha: So why did you delete it? 

Nic: Not going to argue with you. I'm not bothered with the drama. I thought we were mates 


Martha: Keep deleting comments!!!!! 

Nic: What!? 

Martha: Fuck off out of my dms please!!!

Martha overlaid the screenshot with the words "Nic covering his tracks as per.." which doesn't really make sense, but might have something to do with the elevator incident.

Then things get personal. And heated. As Martha escalates the situation.


"Nic why don't you tell us how you really feel!!! Take some responsibility..... we out here copping all the heat and you're still trying to play the nice guy," she wrote in her Instagram story.

"Also I don't sell messages to the press... imma go ahead and drop em right here... for free. Yet I'm in the fake fame hungry one!" she added.

The Instagram story has since been deleted.

This follows Jessika Power's claims that Nic isn't a nice guy, after he rejected her advances on the show.

The Newcastle electrician bluntly rejected the Perth part-time model’s advances, telling her: “I’m married… I don’t want to do this. I don’t want to talk about this because it’s not right.”

But while we were shown this one-sided exchange three weeks ago, Jessika has since said that the circumstances surrounding it have been “misconstrued.”


The 26-year-old hinted to Talking Married that Nic – who was accused of flirtatiously rubbing Jessika’s leg at the previous dinner party – had shown interest in her, too.

“The thing with Nic, throughout the experiment we were really close, we would have flirty banter, it was childish,” she said.

“It’s been really misconstrued. Nic gave me a different idea than he gives the viewers.

That version of events is backed up by an anonymous source, who told the Daily Mail they know exactly what went down on set.

They said the producers encouraged Jessika to chat to Nic to explore a flirtation that had been building between them.

"There was always flirty banter between them and they'd have lots of private chats, with Nic often joking he'd swap Cyrell for Jessika," the source said.

However, when Nic sat down, the insider claimed he put on an innocent act, effectively throwing Jessika "under the bus".

The source also claimed that Nic made a "sexual gesture" towards Jessika as he was walking away.

Oh... who would have thought reality TV wasn't... strictly reality?

Most importantly though, we need someone, anyone, to tell us what the elevator incident is.
