Instagram model and surfer Ellie-Jean Coffey was ‘ambushed’ with ‘disgusting’ threesome comments

An Instagram model and surfing sensation has condemned an author who asked if she would be interested in a threesome after the breakdown of her relationship.

Ellie-Jean Coffey last week revealed she was back on the market after her boyfriend of 18 months cheated on her.

The 24-year-old from Sydney’s northern beaches described herself as ‘single as f**k’ and said she was ‘ready to mingle’ following the split.

But she was appalled to receive a phone call from author Derek Rielly, who is in his 50s, questioning whether she would ever consider embarking on a ‘swinging throuple’ relationship.

Coffey told Confidential she felt ambushed by Rielly, who is most well known for writing the biography of former Prime Minister Bob Hawke. 

‘I think it’s entirely disgusting, it’s an outrage, this is not acceptable behaviour’ she said. 

‘I was getting on a bus, I had a really busy day, the bus was crowded and I got ambushed with a phone call and boom. 

Coffey admitted her social media content could be considered eyebrow raising to some, but said she didn’t believe anyone had a right to make her feel uncomfortable.

‘To be honest I am putting out what I’m putting out and anyone can say what they want to say … it shouldn’t give people permission to write what they write.’

Rielly shared his brief interview with Coffey on his blog, BeachGrit, where he openly confessed to asking the question – leading to an onslaught of further probing in the comments section.

She responded to almost all of his questions with blunt, one word answers, and firmly told him she would never embark in a three-way relationship.   

Ellie-Jean previously said that she felt, ‘angry and then sad and then strong’ after the breakup. 

The model is one of the Coffey sisters who have been nicknamed the ‘Kardashians of Australian surfing’, and it’s easy to see why.

The four Coffey sisters – Ruby-Lee, Bonnie-Lou, Ellie-Jean, 24, and Holly-Daze, 21 – are rising stars in professional surfing in addition to being ‘Instagram famous’. 

Ellie-Jean told the Herald Sun that the family understands why the comparison between the two families is made.

‘We obviously can see why we’re compared because of the whole family unit,’ she told the publication. 

She added that the surfing siblings are, ‘obviously we’re talented’ but unlike the reality show staples, ‘not fabulously wealthy.’

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia recently, the siblings hit back at critics who say they shouldn’t share so many bikini-clad photos online. 

Speaking on behalf of the family, Holly-Daze said that their behaviour is nothing out of the ordinary for Australian women who enjoy the beach lifestyle. 

‘We don’t really care what your opinion is, we just do it, and we’re okay with it,’ Holly-Daze said. ‘If you don’t like it, don’t look at it. So many girls are doing it – and guys.’
