When Alex Na­tion and Bill Gold­smith were spied smooching in a Mel­bourne park last month, the first cou­ple from the sec­ond sea­son of Bach­e­lor In Par­adise was con­firmed!

Yep, it ap­peared the 2016 Bachie win­ner had found love again with Ali Oet­jen’s sec­ond run­ner-up. But just a month af­ter the steamy pic­tures emerged, the pair have called it quits, as ru­mours swirl that Bill wasn’t en­tirely com­mit­ted to Alex af­ter all! And now it’s be­lieved Alex has found com­fort with some­one else... her ex Richie Stra­han!

“Bill told Alex that he loved her, and when they left Fiji, they were head over heels for each other,” spills NW’S source. “But within two weeks, it was al­ready over!”

In­deed, the in­sider re­veals Bill, 31, had a change of heart and told Alex, 27, he didn’t want to be to­gether any­more.

“He said he wasn’t in love with her and didn’t want to be with her any­more – even though just days be­fore, in front of a stack of cam­eras,

he told her he was!” the source re­veals. “He said he was con­fused and needed time to clear his head.”

Ac­cord­ing to the spy, Bill got “too caught up in the magic of the show”, and when he re­turned home to Mel­bourne, his feel­ings changed.

But things went from bad to worse quickly. Yep, just a week af­ter they split, mother-of-one Alex ap­par­ently re­ceived a bunch of mes­sages from girls claim­ing he’d been “hit­ting them up”.

“It turns out the mo­ment he re­turned from Fiji, he was send­ing mes­sages to girls on In­sta­gram ask­ing them to meet up,” claims our snitch. “He apol­o­gised for it, but her trust was gone.”

Alex was said to be truly shat­tered, par­tic­u­larly since she’d al­ready in­tro­duced Bill to her son Eli­jah. “Bill said he re­ally wanted to meet him,” spills the spy. “So she set it up, think­ing this was a long-term thing.”

De­spite re­cent re­ports that sug­gest Alex and Bill are on bad terms, a friend close to the pair in­sists they have since been talk­ing – al­though there’s “no chance” they’ll get back to­gether.

“Bill re­ally misses Alex and he gen­uinely feels hor­ri­ble about what hap­pened,” reck­ons the in­for­mant. “He’s mes­sag­ing her, telling her he wants to be with her again and that he’s sorry. But she couldn’t trust him as far as she could throw him.”

Now Alex is said to be pick­ing up the pieces from an­other heart­break af­ter pub­lic splits with for­mer flame Richie and ex-fi­ancée Mae­gen Luxa.

“She gave it a shot with Bill, think­ing he wanted the same things in life as her,” says the source. “She’s happy to be his friend, but as for more? That won’t hap­pen.” So what’s next for Alex now that she’s back on the mar­ket?

Well, af­ter re­ports emerged that she hit it off with fan favourites Brooke Blur­ton and James Trethewie – So­phie Monk’s love­able re­ject – there’s a chance we could see an­other Par­adise ro­mance wash up on shore. How­ever, re­cent gos­sip sug­gests that, af­ter bury­ing the hatchet with her ex Richie – the man she called “the love of her life” be­fore the split in 2017 – a re­union could most def­i­nitely be in the works!

“Never say never,” says an in­sider of the pos­si­bil­ity of Alex and Richie get­ting back to­gether. “They were crazy in love once upon a time. They were plan­ning a fam fam­ily mily and their whole lives to­gether.

“Alex and Richie had been out of each other’s lives since their breakup,” adds the spy. “Now that they’ve had a chance to talk – and ul­ti­mately re­mem­ber what they once had – any­thing is pos­si­ble... ” n
