Nadia Bartel video: Tommy Little roasts ex-AFL WAG after she snorted white powder off a Kmart plate 

The Project’s Tommy Little roasts Nadia Bartel over now-infamous video of former WAG ‘snorting white powder’ off a Kmart plate at an illegal gathering during Melbourne’s lockdown


It’s been over a month since a video of Nadia Bartel snorting white powder at an illegal gathering during Melbourne’s lockdown went viral.

But on Tuesday, comedian Tommy Little couldn’t resist roasting the ex-AFL WAG even weeks after her name was splashed across headlines for all the wrong reasons.

The Project host, 36, shared a video of himself using a cheap Kmart plate – similar to the one Nadia used in the damning video – for cooking purposes on Instagram.

As he lifted a blowtorch to the camera and crisped up what appeared to be sushi on the plate in question, he quipped: ‘Doing some blow on a $3 Kmart plate.’

The term ‘blow’ is a slang term usually used to describe cocaine – however, Nadia was never charged with any drug offences as police could not prove what she was snorting. 

Nadia was accidentally filmed by her best friend Ellie Pearson breaking Melbourne’s strict lockdown and snorting white powder at an illegal gathering at a friends house on September 2.

The former footy WAG broke her silence with a public apology a day after the video was accidentally uploaded to Instagram.

‘Hi everyone, I have let you all down by my actions. I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future,’ she wrote in a post.

‘To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers trying to keep us all safe, I am embarrassed and remorseful.

‘I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust.’

Private and public gatherings are not permitted in Melbourne, where Bartel lives, under Victoria’s Covid restrictions. 

Nadia’s apology – which includes an appeal for forgiveness from health workers – appeared to confirm the gathering was held on Thursday, September 2.

A later report claimed the video first found its way online due to Ellie having a cracked phone screen.

It’s alleged she was attempting to send the video to her sister; however, because her phone screen was damaged, she hit the wrong buttons.

As a result, the clip was posted to both Instagram and Facebook, and was online for about 10 minutes before being deleted, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

But it was quickly copied by others and shared around, going viral on Thursday night and making headlines by Friday morning.

Nadia and three other women were each fined $5,452 after damning footage of the party was posted on Instagram.

She wasn’t charged with drug offences because police couldn’t prove what she was snorting.

The influencer is a mother of two and the ex-wife of retired AFL star Jimmy Bartel, a Brownlow Medallist who spent his career with the Geelong Cats.

The couple split in 2019 after five years of marriage.
