Konrad Bień-Stephen ‘sides with Brittany Hockley’ in Abbie Chatfield slut-shaming row

Konrad Bień-Stephen has seemingly sided with Brittany Hockley over his ex-girlfriend Abbie Chatfield in their infamous ‘slut-shaming’ row.

The pair’s feud began three days ago when Abbie, 27, publicly accused Brittany, 35, of disrespecting her in a radio segment that aired last month.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed Konrad, 32, who dated Abbie for about a year before she confirmed their split in September, liked Brittany’s apology on Instagram.

This is an interesting move given that Abbie rejected the apology.

Tellingly, Konrad also appears to have unfollowed his former flame on Instagram; however, it is unclear whether he did this before or after her dispute with Brittany.

Abbie and Brittany’s falling-out stems from a segment on The Kyle and Jackie O Show last month in which Brittany and co-host Kyle Sandilands supposedly made disrespectful remarks about Abbie’s love life while interviewing rapper Yung Gravy.

At the time, she was filling in for Jackie ‘O’ Henderson on the Sydney breakfast show.

During the November interview, Gravy, whose real name is Matthew Raymond Hauri, said on air he wanted to go on a date with Abbie, to which Kyle responded: ‘You and everyone else. Line up, my friend, line up!’

When Gravy said, ‘I think we’ve got a date planned,’ Brittany remarked: ‘I have no doubt.’

In the same segment, Kyle asked the Minnesota rapper if Abbie had sent him nudes, and Brittany asked if they’d ‘sexted’ each other.

Although the interview happened a month ago, an enraged Abbie reacted to it on Tuesday’s episode of her podcast It’s A Lot, accusing the pair of spreading ‘misogynistic rhetoric’ about her.

While Kyle was the one leading the conversation, Abbie said Brittany was complicit in his ‘misogyny’ by refusing to speak up.

‘The issue that I think people like Kyle and Brittany have with me is that I’m able to speak about sexuality in a way that isn’t shameful, and they think that that must equate to f**king around, having sex every single day,’ she said.

‘When actually, it’s just that I don’t have the shame that they have, and therefore they’re projecting it onto me,’ she added.

‘Say what you want about me, but do not perpetuate slut-shaming bulls**t on the biggest radio show in the country.’

She also shared a lengthy post about the incident on Instagram, saying she was ‘incredibly disappointed to hear Kyle and Brittany slut-shame me’.

Britt posted a statement on Instagram on Wednesday in which she apologised for her involvement in the ‘misogynistic’ jokes, and insisted she had always been an advocate for female empowerment.

‘I want to apologise for the undercurrent misogynistic tones that the interview had,’ she began.

‘The nature of live radio is unpredictable and often unplanned, which was the case with the direction that this conversation took. Live on radio I found myself in a position where Abbie and I were pitted against each other.’

Brittany said she had never intended to offend Abbie and blamed the gaffe on the unpredictable nature of live radio.

‘This was not planned, and this was not something I felt comfortable with and I thought by saying as little as possible in the interview it would not add any fire to the situation. I see with hindsight that this was naïve and contradictory to what I stand for,’ she said.

Brittany, who co-hosts the progressive, female-led podcast Life Uncut, assured her fans she had never meant to ‘make anyone feel shameful’ about enjoying sex. 

‘As a woman who has championed female empowerment, relationship equality and sexual freedom over the past four years, I am deeply apologetic that this happened,’ she wrote. 

Brittany also addressed rumours she had ignored an Instagram message from Abbie nine days ago in which she asked her privately about the Yung Gravy segment. 

‘I was never notified that Abbie had reached out to me as I had muted notifications [on Instagram], given the overwhelming volume [of messages] I receive each day. I have since reached out,’ she wrote. 

Brittany concluded by again expressing her regret over what happened, writing: ‘I acknowledge that the standard you walk by is the standard you accept.

‘I will learn from this and do better in the future. I am sorry.’

She didn’t buy the excuse that mistakes are made on live radio and that Brittany had tried to limit her contributions during the interview as soon as Abbie was mentioned.

The former Bachelor in Paradise star also scolded Brittany for not standing up to Kyle when he said Gravy would need to ‘line up’ if he wanted to date Abbie.  

‘Live radio is hard, but if I say something off on air, I message the person immediately. But you didn’t, showing you didn’t feel shameful after doing this. You only realised the very clear issue after I called you out,’ she wrote.

‘Don’t blame the segment and live radio. Again, if you can’t hold your own in that environment, maybe it isn’t for you,’ Abbie raged 

‘Also, you didn’t say as little as possible. You added commentary. You weren’t silent. You asked if we had sexted after Kyle asked if I had sent nudes. You brought me up two more times in total [during the Yung Gravy interview].

‘Don’t blame the segment and live radio. Again, if you can’t hold your own in that environment, maybe it isn’t for you.’  

Abbie went on to say she ‘wasn’t shocked’ by Brittany’s remarks in light of their time together on the dating show Bachelor in Paradise in 2020.

Abbie is known for picking fights with other media personalities

On Thursday, Brittany’s Life Uncut co-host Laura Byrne labelled Abbie a hypocrite for calling out her BFF’s supposedly misogynistic behaviour – only to be announced as the presenter of a problematic new dating show just two days later.

Abbie, who like Brittany and Laura launched her media career as a contestant on The Bachelor, is hosting FBoy Island Australia on streaming platform Binge next year.

‘Talks about dismantling the patriarchy. Announces that they’re hosting FBoy Island,’ Laura wrote on Instagram on Thursday morning.

‘A show that encourages men to lie to women and manipulate their emotions in order to win a cash prize.

‘That is enough internet for me today. The absolute hypocrisy.’

Laura also claimed one male contestant from the New Zealand version of FBoy Island had been accused of violence against women, and she ‘would never be associated with the franchise as a feminist’.

The new season of FBoy Island Australia has not been cast yet, and it is not suggested anyone involved in the local version has been accused of violence.

Abbie frantically fired back on Instagram minutes later, saying Laura had misrepresented the show she is hosting for Binge.

‘There are so many elements of the show that do not do that. I can’t say what they’re because they are surprises for the show obviously,’ the Masked Singer judge said.

‘I would not sign up for the show if that were the premise of the show, Laura, so I think you need to maybe address what your co-host [Brittany] did rather than trying to retaliate in this very passive-aggressive weird way.’
