The Spill: Sunday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. “I have nothing to do with their breakup.” The Bachelor’s Abbie on Matt and Chelsie’s split.

Today Bachie couple Matt Agnew and Chelsie McLeod announced on Instagram that they have broken up, two months after the series’ finale aired.

After the sad news broke, Bachelor runner-up Abbie Chatfield shared a message on Instagram saying she had nothing to with Matt and Chelsie’s relationship nor their breakup.

“I’ve been tagged in a lot of comments this morning on posts about Matt and Chelsie’s relationship ending. Some of you are saying it’s ‘my shot’, others are saying that he’s done a Blake Garvey. None of this is fair on Chelsie, Matt or me,” the 24-year-old wrote on her Instagram story.

“My contact with Matt ended when I walked away from him at [the] finale, and I am good friends with Chelsie and love her very much.”

"These comments are unnecessary and aren't helping anyone. I have nothing to do with their relationship or their breakup, so I'd appreciate it if I was left out of the conversation," she wrote.

Matt and Chelsie seem to have ended things on good terms, with Matt writing on Instagram that he wants Chelsie to "find the happiness she deserves" and the breakup is "no one’s fault, it’s just life."

So there we have it, she may have been the runner-up on the show, but Abbie had nothing to do with Matt and Chelsie's decision to split.

2. It turns out The Bachelorette's Angie Kent still texts runner-up Timm Hanly.

The nation was devastated when sweet long-haired Timm had his heart broken on last Thursday's Bachelorette finale.

Angie is in a happy relationship with 29-year-old Carlin after picking him in the final episode, but has said she still talks to runner-up Timm.

"Timm is one of those people, I am one of those people when I make a connection with somebody, I don't care about contracts I don't care what you're not supposed to do," she told The Project. 

Angie shared that Timm wrote to her two weeks after the breakup, but says it was "very respectful to Carlin".

"I'm not going to lie Timm and I talk and as soon as we talk I tell Carlin and he's [Timm] usually already spoken to Carlin before that."

After the show ended, Timm thanked fans for supporting him on his Bachelor journey in a post on Instagram.

"At the end of the day happiness is all that matters, no matter where or in who you find it.

"Can’t thank everyone enough for the overwhelming support and kind words and all i can say is no matter how weird you are always walk to the the beat of your own drumb [sic] and make your mum proud," he wrote.

3. Oh. Bella Hadid just made an unexpected dig at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Three-time Victoria's Secret runway model, Bella Hadid, says she "never felt powerful on a runway" before modelling Rihanna's brand, Savage X Fenty.

Speaking at the Vogue Fashion Festival in Paris, the 23-year-old said: "Rihanna's amazing. For me, that was the first time on a runway that I felt really sexy.

"Because when I first did Fenty, I was doing other lingerie shows and I never felt powerful on a runway, like, in my underwear."

Hadid shared that under the direction of singer and entrepreneur Rihanna, she has now been given the opportunity to walk any way she wanted and put on "another character".

"I think at this point I don’t necessarily love being myself sometimes,” she said.

“Sometimes on the runway you get either nervous or you forget how your legs move."

4. “I don’t want to be a dinosaur." Nicole Kidman on her decision to join Instagram.

When Nicole Kidman joined Instagram last year, fans were surprised, to say the least, given the actress took a while to warm up to social media.

But in an interview with news.com.au, the 52-year-old actress revealed why she decided to join the social network.

"Well, I’m glad I’ve entered into that format because someone like my niece, who is 21, meant that it actually connected me to her in a much deeper way," she shared.

"A friend of mine who has a 16-year-old said, ‘You have to start speaking that language because if you don’t, you won’t have the communication that you want with them’."

“However, it’s with a heavy heart that I write this. For Chels and me, our relationship hasn’t translated from filming to the real, every day world as we had hoped.

“Chels is a very special woman and I want her to find the happiness she deserves. For those who may wonder if there’s someone else for me right now, there absolutely is not.

The 31-year-old concluded his statement saying, “It’s no one’s fault, it’s just life.”
