Hot off the heels of his father’s explosive rant, Marco Pierre White Jr has unleashed his own (expletive-filled!) tirade against Masterchef Australia's Matt Preston.
It’s all because of an interview Matt Preston gave to Kylie and Jackie O last year.
Marco Pierre White Jr was making headlines in the UK for allegedly having sex with another contestant on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK while he was engaged. He also boasted about spending $500,000 of his father Marco Pierre White's money on drugs and sex workers.
Preston told Kylie and Jackie O: “I think it is that terrible thing when you have kids that go off the rails, how do you deal with it? I don’t know. I don’t think Marco has a solution, I don’t think anyone has a solution.”
Preston also made a dig about Pierre White Jr's appearance, saying: “Well anyone who has tattoos on their face they normally behave badly don’t they? They have kind of crossed through a barrier at that point.”
Marco Pierre White then revealed over the weekend that Preston's comments were the reason he chose to defect Channel 10 show MasterChef Australia to join rival Channel 7 show, Hell’s Kitchen Australia.
In an explosive outburst, Pierre White said:
“The things he said about my son in the British press were disgraceful. “No one should ever say that about someone else’s children. I will never forgive that man.”
Describing Preston as a “canary in the coalmine’”, he ended the outburst by holding his hand out, saying, “with my hand on my mother’s grave I will get that man’’.
Now Pierre White Jr's had an outburst of his own and we think someone's in need of having their mouth washed out with soap..!
In a series of now-deleted Tweets, Pierre White Jr said the following:
"Matt preston your a dumb f--k messing with the Pierre white family[sic]"
"Matt Preston from master chef has never met me what a c--t if I ever cross paths with the fat f--k I'll slap him up in front of his family[sic]"
"Matt preston You'll lose your job your wife and the place you used to call home ???? you dumb f--k of a c--t[sic]"
"Also about tattoos on my face. For someone who has never met me to comment on my face, I thought was quite disgusting personally"
He also drew a phallus on a picture of Preston.
However, the famed celebrity chef's son said he now feels remorseful for his harsh words.
Talking to Kyle and Jackie O (because things have come full circle!), he said:
"I shouldn’t have said what I said — I was angry at the time, that’s why I deleted them.”
“I don’t have any problems with him. I’m happy that I’ve got the opportunity now to apologise to him and his family ... it was disgraceful what I said. I shouldn’t have said it.”
However, he made one last dig at Preston, saying:
“I thought it was very out of order, as he hadn’t met me. For someone to comment what he’d said I thought was quite disgusting personally.”
He was on the Aussie radio show spruiking his sex toy collection.
