Married At First Sight’s Cheryl Maitland has had her fair share of publicity since the show wrapped, but it appears the star may have taken matters into her own hands.
A young Sydney-based photographer has revealed a series of messages he shared with the reality star, in which she has given him her daily itinerary.
During the conversation, Maitland tells 20-year-old Jayden Seyfarth she will be making her way to Melbourne, and even asks him which location would be better for a photoshoot.
Seyfarth posted the conversation on his Instagram story, captioning it: “When they need to stay relevant”.
Maitland has since defended her actions, confirming she wasn’t attention seeking, but simply wanting to get the shoot over and done with so she wouldn’t be bugged by photographers for the rest of her trip.
Speaking to News.com.au, Maitland explained her side of the story.
“He messages me all the time to see where I am,” the 26-year-old said.
“I’m frankly getting annoyed with paps taking photos of me when I don’t know and it makes me on edge every day.
“I mentioned to him [Seyfarth] I would be in Melbourne and if he wanted to meet me there that was fine... The paps are going to take photos of me no matter what, so if I already know I won’t be so stressed out and they won’t be following me as much.”
