Ryan moves on – and in – with Jackie O!
Accused of being in debt, Ry’s world could be crumbling – but Jackie steps in to save the shattered star
It’s all come crashing down for fan favourite te Ryan Gallagher! According to recent reports, the former Married At First Sight star has been caught up in disputes over money with his former co-stars Telv Williams and Dean Wells, leading to the breakdown of year-long friendships.
And after Ry, 30, and his housemate Bachelor In Paradise star Davey Lloyd, 29, allegedly came to blows recently, NW has heard whispers that Ryan’s looking for a new place to live. Now, his long-time pal KIIS radio presenter Jackie O, who recently separated from her husband and moved into her own bachelorette pad, has apparently come to his rescue. Yep, they’re shacking up together!
“I reckon Ryan has a thing for Jackie, I really do,” spills NW’S insider. “And she likes that type of Aussie guy – the ‘she’ll be right, mate’ type of attitude.”
Indeed, the pair have become close over the past year, so no-one would be surprised if the blonde – who recently moved out of her Vaucluse family home and into nearby digs to remain close to her daughter Kitty, seven – reached out to check that Ry was doing OK. Especially after the former MAFS golden child was said to be having a tough time at home.
“Ryan had made a bit of money from his comedy tour, and he bought a car – it was like a mustang or something, and he was practically living g in a mustang for or a while,” alleges s the spy. Jackie is known for having a big heart, so she’d never want to see anyone in her life struggle, but now fans are convinced there’s a possibility that this friendship could turn romantic. Yep, after Ryan gushed on Instagram about spending his birthday with the star, 43, writing, “My birthday got off to a great start with a cuddle from this glamour,” fans were desperate to see the two give something romantic a shot.
“Literally thought she was still married this whole time, so I didn’t wanna be disrespectful but can y’all just date already? You would make the hottest couple and you’re both hilarious/ beautiful,” wrote one fan.
But if the friends do decide to become lovers, don’t expect Ryan’s former co-stars to be taking them out to dinner any t time soon t to celebrate, a as the once tig tight-knit crew have been at war since early ea December when h Telv, Tl Dean D and Love Island runner-up Eden Dally were seen out with Ryan’s ex Ayla Browne.
“Ryan’s ex-girlfriend Ayla took a short video of me at an event at the Candy Shop Mansion recently, posted it to social media and he snapped,” Telv spilled recently. “He said, ‘Thought you would have had my back, mate,’ as if I was with his girl, which is the furthest thing from the truth.
“Then he blocked me, Dean and Eden, simply because they were in the room too, saying, ‘After this weekend, I know who my mates are,’” Telv adds. “He gets in really cranky moods, and none of us can be bothered working him out anymore.”
While Ry denies any physical altercations with his reality pal Davey, who he’s patched things up with since the alleged tiff, it seems his MAFS friendships are most certainly on shaky grounds.
Well, at least he has support in Jackie! n
‘RYAN HAS A THING FOR JACKIE... ’
Ry and Jackie are tight...
IT’S ALL OVER! They were once as thick as thieves, but Ry, Eden, Davey, Dean and Telv (not pictured) are navigating a rocky friendship these days. “I feel like the fame has definitely got to his head. He’s definitely not the same person he was when he went on the show,” says Telv.
