Since Thursday’s Bachelorette finale aired, doubts regarding the legitimacy of Sophie Monk and winner Stu Laundy’s relationship have poured in.
And on Saturday, for the first time, shocking images have surfaced that appear to support these claims.
Snapped in an underground car park, Sophie, 37, was seen looking at her millionaire ‘boyfriend’ with an enraged stare and gritted teeth, during a very tense exchange.

Stu, 44, was seen wearing a pair of sunglasses – despite being indoors – and stood up tall with his back to camera.
The snaps were taken moments before their interview on The Project, which was almost universally criticised.
The supposed couple were slammed by fans after the segment, taking issue at an apparent lack of chemistry of affection.
