MAFS’ Natasha Spencer puts on a brave face and leans on best friend Lincoln Alexander for support as she makes her first public appearance since ‘revenge porn’ attack

She’s fallen victim to a ‘revenge porn’ attack, after an intimate video of her was leaked last week. 

And on Wednesday, Married At First Sight’s Natasha Spencer, 26, put on a brave face as she made her first public appearance since the incident was revealed. 

The financial analyst leaned on best friend Lincoln Alexander for support, as she stepped out at a special screening of the show at Sydney’s Tattersalls Club.

Natasha – who ‘married’ Mikey Pembroke on the show – cut a stylish figure on the night, highlighting her trim figure in a navy slip dress.  

The brunette teamed the look with simple black heels and a black bag, with her long locks out and over her shoulders. 

Lincoln meanwhile – who infamously said at Natasha and Mikey’s wedding that she would ‘eat him alive’ – wore a chic black embellished jacket and trousers, with Gucci sneakers.

It comes after an intimate video of Natasha was leaked last week.  

The 26-year-old financial analyst reported the incident to NSW Police on Tuesday, after the private footage was circulated on social media.

The video is believed to have emerged on February 4, the day Natasha’s wedding to Mikey Pembroke was watched by more than a million Australians.

The footage in question was apparently filmed last year and involves Natasha and an unidentified male.

A NSW Police spokesperson said: ‘Officers from Surry Hills Police Area Command are investigating a report made on Tuesday 11 February 2020, by a 26-year-old Lane Cove woman concerning an incident that occurred last year.’ 

Natasha was pictured leaving Surry Hills Police Station on Tuesday. She was holding several pieces of paper and talking on her mobile phone.

A friend of Natasha’s told Daily Mail Australia: ‘She is taking this matter very seriously and is devastated. She also fears that it will have a negative impact on her career.’ 

It comes after Natasha revealed she was suffering from ‘psychological damage’ due to trolling from MAFS viewers, before urging people to ‘please be kind’.

She shared a Facebook post on Monday in which she addressed her critics and also alluded to reality stars who have committed suicide in the past.

‘Stop slamming me and my castmates, you’re doing psychological damage. If you want me to post suicide articles from reality shows, I’m available,’ she wrote. 

Natasha added that the trolling has led to a truce among the Married At First Sight cast as they support each other.

MAFS participants have access to 24/7 assistance from Channel Nine and production company Endemol Shine Australia.

In October, Daily Mail Australia revealed that Nine had set up a ‘dedicated psychological helpline’ for the brides and grooms.
