A Liberal minister is embroiled in a new sexting scandal after going behind his girlfriend’s back and telling a fellow MP ‘I need to f*** you.’
The furious ex-girlfriend of NSW Innovation Minister Matt Kean on Thursday night shared copies of texts he sent to member for Miranda, Eleni Petinos.
Caitlin Keage, who works for Malcolm Turnbull, captioned the Instagram post: ‘When your boyfriend cheats on you when you’re away with family,’ and used the hashtag ‘texts from your ex’.
‘I was in Adelaide trusting my partner not to play up. But alas, here we are. Another minister getting away with his predatory behaviour,’ Ms Keage said.

The messages revealed Mr Kean told Ms Petinos he was ‘tempted to drive down to see you’ just after 10pm on 27 December.
She replied: ‘Miss me huh? lol,’ before he said: ‘Yup. Really need to f**k you.’
Ms Petinos said he already has ‘CK for that’ and when he asked, ‘is that a no?’ she replied ‘it’s that time of the month’.
Mr Kean said: ‘OK come up later x.’
She later texted Mr Kean and said: ‘Just got your Christmas card you’re absolutely gorgeous – love you xx’.
‘I was in Adelaide trusting my partner not to play up,’ Ms Keage captioned the Instagram post, which has since been deleted

The rising NSW minister acknowledged his relationship with Ms Keage was over in a short statement on Thursday night.
‘I am deeply sorry my relationship with Caitlin ended in such a spectacular and sad fashion. I wish her all the best,’ it read.
The abrupt relationship breakdown has been described by Liberal minister Christopher Pyne as ‘very sad’.
‘I know the people involved, they’re both friends of mine and it’s obviously very upsetting for them all to be involved in this story,’ Mr Pyne told the Nine Network.
‘It’s got nothing to do with the prime minister’s office, but it’s obviously a personal matter and very sad.’
Mr Kean’s relationship with Ms Keage is understood to have been on-and-off, while recent photos have been seen of the minister on the dating app, Bumble, Fairfax Media reported.
Mr Kean’s relationship woes have previously been made public on social media.
In 2015, another girlfriend accused him of being in a relationship with Ms Keage.

‘There’s a lot of bad behaviour, it’s a naughty spot,’ she added.
‘When Canberra is on it can be very boring, but when it’s ON – it’s the place to be,’ she told the Daily Telegraph’s Miranda Live radio show.
