KC Osborne surfaces amid restraining order drama, as Michael Goonan speaks

Married At First Sight’s KC Osborne put on a brave face in Melbourne on Wednesday after being dragged into a bitter feud with her boyfriend Michael Goonan’s ex-‘wife’ Stacey Hampton.

The 32-year-old dance instructor looked stressed while getting her hair done at the Joey Scandizzo Salon in South Yarra.

She had filed a restraining order against Stacey on May 7, prompting Stacey’s best friend Anthony Hess to respond by filing a similar intervention order against Michael on Thursday.

Breaking his silence on the messy affair, Michael, 29, told Daily Mail Australia Stacey and Anthony had made ‘multiple threats against’ his girlfriend, who was left feeling ‘unsafe in her own home’.

KC wore leather trousers and high-heeled boots for her trip to the salon, and also carried a $2,000 Givenchy Pandora bag over her arm.

Her outing coincided with exes Stacey and Michael taking their rivalry to the courts.

Bitcoin trader Anthony, who became friends with Stacey, 26, after her ill-fated appearance on Channel Nine’s social experiment, filed an intervention order against Michael on Thursday.

The interim orders were made by the Melbourne Magistrates Court preventing Michael from going within five metres of Anthony or Stacey, or within 200 metres of Anthony’s South Melbourne home.

It came one week after KC had filed a similar restraining order against Stacey.

Michael said that KC had been the victim of targeted harassment and threats from Anthony and Stacey. 

He also claimed the harassment had left his partner ‘too scared to leave her home’.

‘Stacey and Anthony have made multiple threats against KC,’ he said.

‘They’ve intimidated and harassed KC to the point where she was too scared to leave her own home while I was away on a business trip. No woman should feel unsafe in her own home.

‘It’s my job to protect and care for KC and I will continue to protect her. This repeated harassment must stop. KC and I want nothing to do with Stacey and Anthony.

‘Their continued attacks on us are a poor attempt to remain relevant. We just want to be left in peace so we can get on with our lives.’

In response to Michael’s allegations, Stacey told Daily Mail Australia that KC had no grounds for filing an intervention order against her.

She claimed the former Pussycat Dolls backup dancer ‘lacked evidence’ and was trying to use the ‘court system… for media attention’.

‘The IVO came as a surprise considering we were friends,’ she added.

When asked if he had filed an IVO against Michael to get back at KC for filing one against Stacey, Anthony said: ‘Not at all. I had already planned to. This isn’t a war.’

Anthony, 39, is best known for convincing a Sydney magistrate in February to throw out an Apprehended Violence Order brought against him by PR queen Roxy Jacenko. 

He was photographed at Melbourne Magistrates Court on Thursday submitting the application for the order against Michael.

In the complaint, Anthony claimed that Michael had sent him a ‘threatening text message’ and made ‘two threatening phone calls’.

The Interim Intervention Order lasts until June 10, when Anthony will have to argue his case again to have it extended and Michael will have the opportunity to put his version of events before the court. 

In a screenshot of the expletive-laden message obtained by Daily Mail Australia, Michael threatened Anthony to ‘keep his distance’ from him.

‘I’ll give you this, you are a good looking c**t. Though, know I like you. You will see [it] will take an army to rock me,’ Michael wrote.

‘Make sure the bullet goes straight throw [sic] my head. Because I’ll fly charter a jet with the hardest c**ts from Russia just for the banter.

‘Trust me to stay your distance. Bikies wanna go me, wear their true colours, I’ll always respect the lads.’

KC and Stacey were recently engaged in a social media spat over a plastic toy.

The feud began earlier this month when Stacey lashed out at Michael and KC after they uploaded a TikTok video in which they played with her son’s Nerf gun.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, the law graduate said she had left the toy at Michael’s house after their split in January and wanted him to return it. 

She then accused KC of imitating her style by wearing the same Stuart Weitzman boots that she owns, as well as staying at her preferred hotel in Melbourne, Crown Towers.

Frustrated by Stacey’s claims, KC responded with her own Instagram rant, saying she did not know to whom the toy belonged.

She also denied she was copying her by wearing Stuart Weitzman boots and staying at Crown Towers.  

Daily Mail Australia has contacted KC’s representative for comment.
