In an interview with Daily Mail Australia, MAFS Australia groom Josh said the comments made by Melissa were “pretty despicable” as she had “nothing to do” with his past relationship. He said: “It wasn’t a messy divorce, but even if it was, I think it’s pretty despicable for someone that has nothing to do with my relationship with my ex-wife to comment on that the way she did.”

“I never spoke about my ex-wife on the show. I think that she deserves the utmost respect,” Josh added. “I would never talk about her. [My ex] did not apply for the show, she didn’t go through the experience, and I have the utmost respect for her. I would never talk about her private manner like that.”

Josh has also slammed the comments made by his MAFS Australia wife Melissa. Melissa previously claimed he [Josh] cried “crocodile tears” while on the show. “They weren’t crocodile tears,” he said. “They were real tears from someone who had gone through a difficult experience.”
