Apparently, the Nine Network was forced to send the Adelaide resident to therapy after he was caught with what is believed to be drugs.
“A bag of [white substance] fell out of Michael’s pocket on set,” an insider on set told the outlet. "He was at the pool when it dropped out of his dressing gown and they had to send him away to a third-party counsellor to get help.”
The source also explained how many of Michael's castmates were fully aware of how Michael acted on and off the screen. Interestingly, Stacey also knew about Michael's ways and decided to stay with the father.
“Stacey knew all of this and she was the one saying Hayley was such a bad person… Why would you hang around with someone and keep this relationship and marriage going if you knew they had this lifestyle? She knows what a party boy he is," New Idea's source added.
Nine have a very strict policy when it comes to attending to their contestants'.
Their official statement reads: “Nine takes its obligations in respect to the health and wellbeing of the participants of this program extremely seriously. All participants have access to the show psychologist during filming, during broadcast and once the program has ended.
“Nine has arranged an additional service for participants should they like or need further individual and confidential psychological support. This service gives participants access to psychologists who have been specifically engaged to support those involved in the program in relation to their experiences. This service is a dedicated helpline from which participants can also arrange face to face sessions and is an ongoing service available to them all after the series has ended.”
While Michal insists that he is just being himself, concerns for him have grown after he has gone rogue on social media this week.
The video was posted to the Instagram page MAFS Funny, which showed Michael ranting about Stacey.
"Having a couple quiet ones at the bar. Who do I bump into? This gorgeous girl. Giddy up. Oi! Every Bond film needs a villain. Ladies and gentlemen, here he is! Suck your heart out," an intoxicated Michael said, sticking the finger up to the camera.
He captioned the blurry video: "Sorry STacie."
