MAFS’ Martha Kalifatidis cries in public after her ‘break-up’ with Michael Brunelli

Married At First Sight’s Martha Kalifatidis had a public meltdown on Monday – conveniently in front of the paparazzi – after her alleged ‘split’ with Michael Brunelli.

The 31-year-old makeup artist wiped tears from her eyes while buying red wine from a bottle shop in Sydney’s Bondi Beach with her sister, Sophie.

Martha appeared to be reading text messages on her phone, after she and Michael had shared a number of texts to Instagram that same day which indicated they had broken up.

It’s widely suspected the ‘break-up texts’ saga is part of a sponsored content deal with an Internet service provider.

During the trip to the liquor store, Martha showed off her abs in a beige crop top and high-waisted cargo pants. 

She went makeup free and styled her brunette hair in loose, tousled curls.  

Her sister, Sophie, wore a black tracksuit and was seen looking over Martha’s shoulder as she scrolled through her phone.

In the texts, Michael, 28, asked his girlfriend if she was ‘joking’ when she said she was fed up, and told her she was being too dramatic – but Martha ranted on.

She wrote: ‘You know I don’t play Michael, I don’t have time for this. I’m so busy, I have work to do. I need better support, I want a better connection! I just need more everything.’

When Michael asked his girlfriend what had changed, she complained: ‘We have had hassles every single day and it’s just an unnecessary burden on me.’
