Married At First Sight star Seb Guilhaus has found an unlikely ally in his ex-wife’s former friend Cyrell Paule, amid backlash for joining Only Fans.
Cyrell, who was on-again/off-again friends with Seb’s ex Elizabeth Sobinoff, defended the personal trainer on Instagram on Monday.
Cyrell, 33, appeared to take aim at the sexism of the backlash Seb, 33, was receiving from followers and fans of the show.

‘When it was other MAFS contestants joining OFs we praised them, called them strong, empowering, independent,’ Cyrell wrote.
‘[We would say] It’s her body, her choice… now a man does it but we don’t agree… Guess what… It’s HIS body, HIS choice,’ the star added.
Cyrell went on to explain she would not make an Only Fans herself but valued personal choice.
‘It’s easy to just ignore things you may not agree with rather than make unwanted comments,’ she finished, bluntly.

Seb announced himself and new girlfriend Ania are joining adult subscription site OnlyFans as a couple.
He unveiled the news on Sunday alongside a photo of the scantily-clad pair sharing a steamy kiss.
He captioned the image: ‘So Ania and I did thing. O.F. Coming soon.’

OnlyFans is a subscription-based adult website where content can range from something as innocent as a suggestive selfie, all the way to hardcore pornography.
It’s not yet known what sort of content the pair will be creating.
Shortly after the announcement, personal trainer Seb was quick to defend the couple’s career move in a candid comment.

‘Hahaha I thought this might be a little contentious,’ he began. ‘Sorry to shock everyone.
‘I don’t see anything wrong with being empowered sexually with someone I’m close to, and hopefully empowering others to embrace a very important part of life.
‘I definitely haven’t changed as a human being, just adding a little spice, a new life experience… it is of course everyone’s prerogative to decide what this means to them.’
He added that it is ‘upsetting’ the some critics have been quick to judge the couple’s decision, adding: ‘It’s like having a favourite sporting team and dumping them after they lose a single game.

‘In this case no one is being hurt and no one is being forced to explore this… lots of love everyone.’
Seb went public with his girlfriend Ania in August 2021.
But he revealed a month later that the pair had actually met over a decade prior, when he was just 23.

Seb said that he had a massive crush on her but didn’t let her know because he was ‘ultra-insecure, shy and gorky’.
Seb explained that while they had great chemistry, a combination of life getting in the way and mis-timing was to blame they never decided to pursue a relationship.
‘I was so attracted to her physically and our conversations were always super deep and interesting,’ he wrote.

‘My lack of groundedness, confidence, and probably my inability to express how I felt meant we didn’t fully connect then.’
Seb said that after a chance encounter earlier last year the pair were able to reconnect and that he was brave enough to ask for her number.
‘We both have massive trust issues but we make each other feel safe,’ he said.

‘We both communicate in a strange slightly twisted way but understand each other perfectly.’ He finished the post writing, ‘I really like you beautiful girl’.
Seb confirmed he was dating again almost eight months after his split from former Married At First Sight co-star Elizabeth Sobinoff in January 2021.
‘Ania is a beautiful girl with a heart of gold and we are just starting to get to know each other,’ he told Daily Mail Australia at the time.
