‘I am not in a position to comment on Alistah Laishkochav. My mother removed my family from that environment when I was five years old, over 25 years ago,’ she revealed to TheFIX. ‘I was brought up by my mother and grandmother in Brisbane in a loving, caring and compassionate household. I had a wonderful childhood and I am extremely grateful to both my mother and grandmother for the upbringing which they provided me and my siblings.
‘Although I have since met and reunited with my family, I have never had a relationship with Alistah Laishkochav. Alistah Laishkochav is not relevant to who I am nor does he define me,’ she concluded.
According to reports, Keira – who says she has ‘five brothers and sisters’ – told Bachelor producers her father had died 30 years ago.
However, this morning’s revelation that her father was a polygamist cult leader with nine wives and 64 children has shocked fans.
Oddly, Keira isn’t the only one of Bachelor Richie Strahan’s ladies with a cult background, with Megan Marx also opening up about having been raised in a very religious, cult-like environment.
