A prominent radio host has claimed Sophie Monk has a boyfriend… and it’s not Stu Laundy!

Speaking on Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam and Browny radio show, host Jonathan Brown said the 38-year-old Bachelorette is in a secret relationship with a Melbourne-based ~mystery~ man.

“Sophie has a boyfriend and it’s not Stu Laundy,” he alleged on Thursday, according to The Fix. “He has been named in gossip pages and [she] did know the fellow before she went into the [Bachelorette] house.”

He added: “It was reported in the gossip pages that she may have made a call to said man and asked him to be an intruder…That did not happen.”

Browny said the information comes from a “very reliable and very credible source.”

Of course, he isn’t the first radio host to claim the happy couple aren’t what they seem. Em Rusciano has also spoken out about their romance — or lack thereof.

“She has played a trick on everyone and the ultimate prize is a great career, not a man,” the 2Day FM radio host said after seeing Stu and Sophie, whose rating-winning season cemented her status as Australia’s sweetheart, in their first public appearance together on The Project last Friday.

“She, to me, looked uncomfortable and cagey and like she didn’t want to be there,” Em told her listeners while chatting about the interview, where the couple were slammed for apparently having ‘zero chemistry’.

There’s no denying the fact that Sophie’s fairytale ending to The Bachelorette has been tarnished, as her new relationship with the publican has taken a series beating since the finale aired last month.

“We are getting smashed,” Sophie, 37, previously told KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O, after calling in to set the record straight about split rumours that have plagued the pair from the moment they went public with their relationship.

“We have not broken up, we are together,” she confirmed while on the phone from her hotel room, where she was staying with Stu, 44.

Stu has also insisted that the relationship has staying power.

“We are very well-suited,” he recently told OK!, saying there are no worries on his part.

Well, besides how the show has affected his four daughters, whom he shares with soon-to-be ex-wife Rachel.

“The only concern I have had thus far throughout the entire process is the wellbeing of my children and the negative impact on them,” Stu said.

“People’s opinions can hurt kids, which I don’t think they realise.”

Rock solid and committed to making it work, the couple even admitted they’re ruling out the “kiss of death”… matching tattoos! “God no,” laughed Soph when fans suggested they prove their love with matching ink.

“Have you noticed that everyone breaks up after doing that? That’s going,’You’re miiine!'”

Only time will tell!
