Stu Laundy broke up with Sophie Monk because of ONE habit

 Stu Laundy ended his six-month relationship with Sophie Monk because he couldn’t get her to kick one persistent habit, a friend of the publican has claimed. 

According to News Corp’s source, Sophie, 37, wasn’t being genuine during pre-show promotion, when she said her ideal date was a night in with ‘trackies, TV and wine.’  

‘Sophie loves to party… and in the end it became a bit much for Stu, 44’ who allegedly couldn’t convince her to spend ‘the odd night on the couch.’

The actress has copped harsh criticism since The Bachelorette saw her returning to the celebrity A-list, but a ‘party girl’ habit wasn’t among the complaints.

In fact, it was millionaire father-of-four Stu who was often labelled an ‘arrogant party boy’ who takes to the road in an Aston Martin and the seas in one of his two yachts.

In stark contrast, his mate has now argued: ‘Sophie loves to party… loves to have a drink and a cigarette and has made no secret of that.’

In an attempt to get turn the failing relationship around, the pub heir’s friend said: ‘he tried to get her to slow down… just a little bit. Have the odd night on the couch.’

‘But Sophie wasn’t interested.’

When speaking to the publication, Sophie’s manager Titus Day reportedly balked at the claims, citing the actress’ comments regarding her ideal date.

‘There is no one I’ve met who parties less than Sophie,’ Titus said, ‘That is common knowledge.’

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to both Sophie and Stu for comment.

On Thursday, hours after Daily Mail Australia first reported the pair’s split, Sophie took to Instagram with a lengthy explanation.

At odds with Stu’s mate’s claims, the personality re-iterated: ‘I went into this experience looking to settle down and start a family… my intentions were everything I said I was looking for, but unfortunately it just didn’t work out.’ 

 ‘As much as I respect him we are just very different people.’

Stu won The Bachelorette in October, and even before the pre-taped finale had aired, rumours swirled the pair had either split, or were ‘faking’ their romance.

When confirming the split to Daily Mail Australia, a source claimed: ‘They gave it a good six months but sadly, it’s naturally run its course.’

 ‘They’re really good friends. But it’s not going to go any further,’ they added, citing ‘travel and distance’ as the main reason for the split.
