"For all those gold digging comments that I do get, that's cool, have your say. They're words. They make me upset at the time, but guess what? When I do get upset, it just makes me stronger. I don't need a man and I don't need Michael to get me nice things."
The dance teacher, who recently moved back to Australia after failing to make it big time in Los Angeles, went on to say that God put the MAFS groom in her life for a reason.
"I didn't plan for it to be this way, but I do believe that God has a plan and I am so grateful for Michael being in my life. We are a team, we are a partnership and I absolutely love how that boy treats me. I'm just happy."
Last week, the couple came under fire when they flaunted the usage of their private jet, sharing dozens of photos to Instagram after boarding the plane. Considering the fact we're in the midst of a harrowing pandemic and thousands of Australians have lost their jobs, many said their decision to boast about their wealth was insensitive and distasteful.
"Just remember, things are hard for all Australians now. Don't sell yourself short and act like this in photos. You didn't have to show all the photos of inside the plane. That is just showing off," one person commented on the dance instructor's Instagram post also which included snaps of the couple alongside the plane.
"Really? A private jet? Other Australians are struggling to get home once they are here, they are in quarantine for two weeks," another added.
