Appearing on The Handbags podcast, Ella clarified that it was the photos of her hanging out with fellow groom Brent Vitiello at the beach on Valentine’s Day that saw Mitch block her “on every platform”.
“The article came out of Brent and I at the beach. Mitchell was waiting for one little thing for me to do wrong for him to just tap out,” Ella said.
“As soon as they came out, he showed a really ugly side,” she added, claiming that their friend Domenica Calarco was also there with them on the day.
“It was all about the way that he looked. He knew I was at the beach,” she said.
In the same interview, Ella went on to call Mitch an “enigma”, and that he “doesn’t believe in monogamous relationships”.
“I’ve dated a lot of men, and I am good at reading people. I have never met anyone like Mitchell. He is wired so differently,” she said.
“His first thing was, ‘I don’t really believe in marriage.’ And I’m like, ‘Don’t I have a ring on and you read vows [to me]?’”
Ella added she was frustrated she was matched with Mitch in the first place, saying, “I went on the show not to meet another f**kboy. They gave me that on a silver platter”.
“If anything, Mitch has been the worst guy I’ve ever dated. The head f**kery … I’ve never experienced it before, and I’m still trying to figure it out.”
Mitch is yet to break his silence on the split, but it seems as though he’s already moved on with co-star Tamara Djordjevic.
At the time of the Reunion, Mitch was adamant he’d been uninterested in Tamara when she made a move. However, things seem to have changed in the months since.
“I think there was truth behind the intent, the text messages [Tamara sent]… I can’t defend him or her in this situation,” Ella said in an interview with Today Extra.
“To be honest, I actually don’t know what's going on with Mitch and Tamara, I don’t know if they are together or not.”
Meanwhile, fans were hoping Ella had moved on with Brent after the show wrapped, but when New Idea caught up with the groom, he maintained they were just friends.
“Me and Ella have spoken, we are really, really close,” Brent said. “We’ve had the conversation that if we had been matched, things would’ve turned out amazingly and we were a lot more suited.”
“We’re not entertaining too much right now for the simple fact that Ella is still hurt, she’s going through a lot, and this has been a huge experience, so we’re not the types to try and jump in or just because everyone wants us to.”
“We are just spending time together as really good friends and if something happens, it does, if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. We’re kind of open to both of it – there’s no pressure,” he added.
