According to the Daily Telegraph, the 44-year-old confirmed the pair were together in a relationship which ended late last year.  The couple kept their relationship a secret at the time.

The controversial Block contestant shared with the newspaper that she and Richard, 61, ‘first connected’ at a Channel Nine Telethon in October.  This connection led to months of sneaking around and keeping the relationship a secret from the media and others.

Suzi stated during the interview that it was Richard that suddenly ended their romance and she was left heartbroken.

“He called me on the phone and said it had to stop,” she explained, “that really hurt me.”

Richard himself has not confirmed or denied this recount of events.

  • She’s out to grab her 15 minutes of fame any way she can.


  • This woman is in serious need of counselling. She seems to go from bad to worse and as no regard of how her actions are and will affect her children.

    • The explicit photos being taken in the first place, especially the children of either person could have been seen and commented on. I dont know how old her children are. If they are quite young they may be confused and upset about the comments they have heard, especially if spoken to them specifically.


  • Lke mh


  • Wonder why she felt the need to announce it to the world now.


  • I honestly don’t care about what she days. She just seems to be an attention grabber.


  • i don’t watch this show. well i am sure that she has cleared this up


  • So now she’s telling the world… Why? Just for attention?


  • I don’t understand what’s the big deal about who she was dating and when. Unless he’s married. Is he married?


  • If a relationship is something that must be kept secret, it is most likely doomed.


  • Lke it


  • Who cares who she was dating. Good luck to who is with each other.


  • I must admit it’s not a show that appeals to me to watch. It seems to have gone from it’s original format into something entirely different.
