Speaking to Kyle & Jackie O on Monday morning, Martha attempted to justify her statement.
“That reunion was filmed literally during the Christmas break and I didn’t go back to work,” she said. “I do work and I don’t rely on my parents.”
The controversial contestant told the KIIS FM hosts she was too scared to go back to work as a freelance make-up artist.
“I don’t want to be just turning up to people’s houses,” she said. “I don’t feel safe at the moment, I really don’t. I don’t know who I can trust.
“I did ask to go back to my old job, which was at a retailer, but it was too much of a liability for them.”
For now, Martha has returned to her parents home in Melbourne.
