Last week, the IT worker was seen flirting up a storm with a female sandwich artist at a cafe in Mosman.
An onlooker claimed the reality star was ‘very loud’ and ‘in a jovial mood’ as he chatted away with the lady behind the counter.
According to the source, he even remarked on her youthful looks and leaned over the counter to show her something on his phone.
Troy and Carly reportedly split earlier this month, with a source telling Daily Mail Australia that their relationship had been in trouble for months.
Troy relocated to Melbourne earlier this year to be with Carly, but their romance quickly headed south.
