Oak Schuetz (pictured) claims she met Sam Burgess on Thursday night and spent all weekend with him before he had to travel to Brisbane
A woman who claimed she was dating Sam Burgess four days after the pair met has sensationally back flipped in a bizarre Instagram post.
Oak Schuetz, 27, said she met the recently retired NRL star in the drinks queue at The Establishment in Sydney’s CBD on Thursday night and spent the entire weekend with him.
In footage she posted on Monday night, the American waitress said ‘rumours pertaining to our relationship… takes a hit at our characters’.
She denied they were any more than friends and clarified that she is still single.
‘I’m single and Sam is single and it needs to be left at that because it just does. I just wanted to clear that up.’
Miss Schuetz said she found the whole ordeal ‘frustrating’ and said her ‘quotes were taken out of context.’
‘If we did want to get some things out on the radar we can say that I also invented microwave popcorn, I am a bounty hunter in my spare time and I’m an astrophysicist,’ she said.
The Opera Bar waitress initially claimed she and Burgess were ‘dating for sure’ after a whirlwind four-day romance.

Burgess also denied they were dating. When asked about the fling by Daily Mail Australia, he simply said: ‘Not true’. Pictured is a screenshot of Burgess talking to the Daily Mail
On Sunday morning Burgess drove his BMW to her house in Matraville in Sydney’s east and the pair were seen chatting, laughing and hugging outside.
But she has since claimed the photos were taken out of context.
‘Sam just brought me my phone and it needs to be left at that,’ she said.
‘It’s frustrating that they can say what they want and put things together.’
Burgess also denied he was dating Miss Schuetz when approached by Daily Mail Australia.
He said Miss Schuetz claims they were in a relationship and that he was planning to visit her after a trip to Brisbane were simply ‘not true’.

She tagged Sam Burgess in the Instagram rant, as she claimed they were both still single
Miss Schuetz, who is from Seattle and works at O-Bar And Dining in the CBD, previously told the Daily Telegraph that she and father-of-two Burgess were dating.
She said: ‘I’m going to take a chance on him. Maybe it’s just a fling. I hope it’s not, but it’s fun right now. We’re dating for sure – it’s exciting’.
Miss Schuetz said she had no idea who Burgess was when he approached her on Thursday night.
Burgess bought her a drink and when she went to his table to thank him she saw he was with his mother and friends, she said.
The Rabbitohs star apparently introduced her to the group and later told her he was divorcing the mother of his two children, Phoebe Hooke.

‘I know he’s getting divorced and going through a tough time but, like my motto goes, ”why not?”,’ she said.
The American has the phrase tattooed on her inner arm and often flaunts it in racy social media pictures.
Miss Schuetz said the pair left the city bar separately because Burgess didn’t want them to be seen together – and described him and his penthouse as ‘lovely’.
She said that after she learned Burgess was famous, she searched the mother of his two children online.
‘I googled his wife Phoebe, she’s so pretty. Prettier than me… I’m just going to go for it and see what happens,’ she said.
Burgess and Phoebe first separated in December 2018 before rekindling their relationship in April. They separated most recently in October.
Police took out a temporary apprehended violence order on behalf of Phoebe’s father after an alleged altercation between he and Burgess following the separation.
Miss Schuetz follows Burgess on Instagram, but he does not follow her in return.
