Married at First Sight’s Tracey Jewel has quit her new wellness studio 360 Hit only a few days after its launch, claiming she is suicidal and unable to work.
‘Because of my mental health, I’m not doing very well and didn’t want to breach duty of care and director duties,’ Tracey, 37, told Daily Mail Australia.
The reality star resigned as a director and shareholder of the company on July 12, but stayed on as an ‘ambassador’ until Tuesday.

‘It wasn’t a paid role anyhow,’ she explained. ‘I was just helping out after resigning.’
Tracey said she is unable to work due to the ‘negative attention’ she has received since appearing on MAFS early last year.
‘No one will hire me, due to all this ongoing negative attention,’ she said. ‘My name and reputation is ruined.’
‘These people have ruined my life. I am suicidal most days,’ she added tearfully.

Meanwhile, Tracey is preparing for a means inquiry at Perth Magistrates Court on August 30, where it will be determined if she has the capacity to pay a $34,000 debt she owes her ex-boyfriend, Patrick Kedemos.
The court will take into consideration factors including: Tracey’s assets and liabilities, any future earnings from an employer and the existence, location and value of any property that can be seized and sold.
Tracey’s current boyfriend, Nathan Constable, is now the sole director and 50 per cent shareholder of MCJ Fitness, the company behind 360 Hit.
Her elderly mother, Jennifer Collett, has become another 50 per cent shareholder.

Tracey’s former business partner, Melissa Madgwick, has also resigned as co-director and shareholder of the company.
Melissa is due in court for her own means enquiry on August 22, after her marketing company Brand Dominance was ordered to pay gift hamper business Hooked in a Box $9,800 plus costs in January 2018 for breach of contract.
The ‘branding specialist’ told Daily Mail Australia she had ‘opted out’ of 360 Hit for personal reasons.
‘Working long hours in a gym and the business model didn’t align to what I wanted to do,’ Melissa said, adding: ‘I’ve seen some of the things over the last few months about Tracey and I had no idea personally.’

A now-deleted post on the 360 Hit Facebook page stated that Tracey and Melissa had started the business due to their shared passion for holistic health and wellness.
Tracey’s boyfriend Nathan wrote a press release announcing the reality star’s resignation as an ambassador for 360 Hit on Tuesday.
‘Effective of today’s date, Tracey Jewel has resigned as an ambassador of 360 Hit,’ Nathan wrote.
‘We are appreciative of all her hard work and marketing efforts towards the opening of 360 Hit boxing and wellness studio for women.
‘We confirm Tracey is not a director, shareholder or employee of our company… We wish her all the best and thank her for her time and energy.’
Urgent help: Tracey told Daily Mail Australia that she will be entering a mental health facility

She previously attempted suicide in Berlin, Germany in July last year by overdosing on medication in a hotel room.
She returned to Perth weeks later and checked herself into a mental health facility.
