The Bachelorette's Sophie Monk confirmed her relationship with Stu Laundy was over almost two-months ago revealing, “I gave it the best shot I could and my intentions were everything, but unfortunately it just didn’t work out. As much as I respect him we are just very different people.”
Following the 38-year-old's Instagram post explaining the split and Sophie's appearance on A Current Affair, her ex-beau is now opening up about his perspective on the break-up. Stu recently sat down for a new interview, explaining why he believes it was never going to work.
“The thing is, what I saw was humour and friendship,” Stu told Daily Mail. “And the way the show plays out, in the bubble you’re in, it’s easy to confuse your feelings.”
The father-of-four continued: "I went on the show because I thought I saw something in Sophie 12-months prior, and the show validated my decision,” he said.
“I didn’t go on the show for an Insta career or to get invited to the opening of an envelope.”
On a more positive note, the famed publican claims, "I'm sure Soph and I will be mates forever."
