She is rumoured to be dating AFL star Dustin Martin.

And on Tuesday, Australian model Jessica Gomes jokingly stormed off The Morning Show set after being asked about her rumoured relationship.

Host Larry Emdur asked Jessica: ‘Just say one of Australia’s top models hypothetically had been linked to one of Australia’s top AFL players. If there was any truth to it, how hard would it be to navigate a private life within the public eye?’

‘I don’t know what to say. Hypothetically I don’t know. It’s a tough one,’ she replied.

Larry then went on to ask Jessica about her time on Dancing With The Stars before ending the interview.

‘It’s great to see you Jess, good luck with everything,’ he said before introducing the next segment.

‘Are we still filming? Are we still on air?’ Jessica asked before walking off the set.

‘No don’t do that!’ host Kylie Gillies yelled as the model quickly returned to her seat.

Larry then stood up and said: ‘I’m going to storm off the set. This is ridiculous. We are out of here,’ as Jessica and Kylie burst into laughter.

Jessica were first rumoured to be in a romantic relationship with Dustin in April.

The Richmond Tigers premiership hero and the swimsuit model had enjoyed ‘several’ dinner dates in Melbourne this year, according to a report in the Herald Sun.

While it is unclear if the pair are just friends or something more, a source confirmed they do know one another.

Jessica declined to comment when approached by the paper, saying: ‘I am so sorry, but I can’t comment on this. I don’t talk about my private life.’

Dustin’s manager Ralph Carr also declined to comment.
