Why Did Megan Marx And Tiffany Scanlon Break Up?
When the media first found out about Megan and Tiffany’s break up, the reason was unclear.
However, in an interview with nine.com, Megan takes the blame for the relationship failing.
"I just think in terms of the way that I behaved with Tiffany after we started our relationship, I regret the way that I publicised the relationship," she shared. "Because I think essentially it broke it down."
In her personal blog, Tiffany shared the same sentiment and explained in more detail. The two dated privately for four months before going public, which would lead to people recognising them on the streets, strangers talking their photos, and even threesome requests from men.
However, it was the ex-couple’s big move to Bali that would eventually cause the relationship’s end. Not only were the two relocated to a new environment, but they also tried to start a business and a new reality show together.
It didn’t help that throughout their relationship, tabloids and critics have accused them of staging a lesbian relationship for publicity.
All of this, together with the added pressure of the media and Tiffany’s pre-existing mental health issues would lead to the unfortunate end of the relationship.
