Married At First Sight AU: Mel dumped as Jules' bridesmaid via savage texts

Married At First Sight Australia star Melissa Lucarelli has shared the brutal way castmate Jules Robinson dumped her as a bridesmaid. 

Speaking to radio station KIIS FM, Lucarelli revealed the contents of a text exchange between the pair that saw Robinson cut her former friend from her wedding party. 

Having found love with partner Cam Merchant, Robinson asked fellow participants Lucarelli and Heidi Latcham to be her bridesmaids at her real wedding during an episode of the reality show. 

Later, she apparently changed her mind, calling Lucarelli and allegedly telling her: "You're not going to be a bridesmaid anymore... I haven't really seen you this year, it wouldn't be right to have you standing next to me [at] my real wedding." 

During the tell-all radio interview, KIIS host Jackie O read out some of the messages Lucarelli had allegedly been sent from Robinson following the call. 

"Just 'cos I said it on a show doesn't mean I have to do it," one text read, according to Lucarelli. 

"People said a lot of things on that show. This is real life. I won't be answering any media messages about this. I just want it to blow over and it will be forgotten about. Take care."

Lucarelli added that when she questioned her friend about her reasons, Robinson called her a "shit friend" who had "said stuff" about her. 

Lucarelli has adressed the situation several times on social media, including in an old photo of her and Robinson uploaded to Instagram captioned: "Yes, the rumours are true". 

"Yes Jules dumped me as a bridesmaid. No I wasn't at the wedding event of the year." 

Meanwhile, Robinson confirmed her change of heart, telling the Today Show: "When it got to the time, it didn't feel right [to have her as a bridesmaid]." 

'We hadn't really seen each other and I just really wanted my close friends to be there, to be by my side, and my best friends," she added. 

"So that was my decision."

Robinson and Merchant were officially married in a ceremony televised by Channel 9's A Current Affair.
