Alex Nation has accused a member from her AFL club of backstabbing after one opened up to Woman’s Day magazine about yet another relationship she was allegedly in at a time when everyone believed she was still dating The Bachelor Richie Strahan.
The tabloid claims Nation, 26, “dated” her Frankston Bombers coach’s son, Dale White, 22, for two months, leaving him “totally heartbroken” when she dumped him at their mid-season footy ball and took up with her current girlfriend, Maegan Luxa, 31.
“Alex was telling everyone she had a crush on Maegan and then they shared a shoey [drank out of a shoe] and the rest was history,” they added.
After the story was printed, Nation, a mother-of-one from the Mornington Peninsula, sent a message en masse to the club saying whoever had provided the “very elaborate information” had “stabbed” her in the back and she felt “saddened”.
She added to Fairfax Media: “The girls on my actual football team would never do this to me. However, sadly an individual from the football club has decided to stoop to an astoundingly low level.”
Woman’s Day was also in the firing line, when she took to her Instagram with over 105k followers to call the article “trash”.
After a month of refusing to confirm or deny their split, Nation did so by announcing her relationship with Luxa.
