Since appearing on Married at First Sight earlier this year, 35-year-old Tracey Jewel has steadily remained in the headlines. From her relationship and subsequent break up with fellow contestant Sean Thomsen, to leaked text messages, to the launch of her latest book, This Goddess Means Business, Tracey has been the focus of a great deal of media attention.
The latest attention, however, focuses on a number of claims made by the reality star, author and professional speaker, that don’t appear to add up.
Now, we’ve fact-checked the controversies that seem to refuse to let go of Tracey Jewel.
The cervical cancer scare
In April this year, Tracey referred to her experience with cervical cancer in an Instagram post. Thanking her hairdresser, who she said has been doing her extensions for years, Tracey added, “Hair never grows back after cervical cancer the same way”.
Speaking to YahooBe! later that month, Tracey said she was diagnosed with stage zero CIN3 cervical cancer eight weeks after her daughter Grace was born.
“Unfortunately that meant I couldn’t breastfeed after that,” she said, “which you know, was quite traumatic to go through that when you’re a new mum, especially a first time mum”.
