She teamed the look with a black leather jacket and wore her long locks out and over her shoulders. 

Konrad meanwhile, who appeared on Brooke Blurton’s season of The Bachelorette this year, kept things casual in a black T-shirt and shorts.

‘This is to address the post made by Brooke. A month ago, a video of Konrad and I kissing was secretly captured by a patron and made public,’ she began.

‘Following this, Brooke and I had a conversation in which I apologised and expressed regret multiple times for our public affection as this was prior to Konrad’s exit from the show. Konrad had a similar conversation with Brooke.  

‘We met as a result of him coming along to a catch up with a mutual friend, the public setting was an accident.

‘We absolutely should have waited to be in private as we are public figures and these are things we need to consider, but we didn’t. We also didn’t consider the possible ramifications of our actions.

‘Immediately following this, we intentionally kept things quiet, and did not leave the house together in an effort to not be photographed out of respect for the show and to minimise press surrounding the spoiler of Konrad’s exit.’ 

Abbie later shared a series of photos of herself and Konrad on Instagram the day before The Bachelorette finale, confirming their relationship.

But she insisted ‘it was not with malice’, and fan favourite Konrad had already been eliminated from the show when she made the announcement.

‘The morning of, I mistook a message from Brooke expressing her happiness for and approval of our relationship as a green light to upload a post. Following the post, Konrad received an equally supportive message,’ she continued. 

‘I see with hindsight that this assumption was naive. I now understand the timing of publicly sharing our relationship should have been more considered and that is my fault. I acknowledge that impact outweighs intent.’

Referencing Brooke’s comment about ‘another white woman displaying what white privilege looks like’, Abbie admitted she ‘didn’t take into account… the inherent privilege that I hold as a white woman’.

‘This is an extremely important conversation to be having. In future, this will be at the forefront of my mind and I will continue to listen to and amplify minority communities, and endeavour to learn.’

She simply finished the post: ‘I’m sorry.’

Without naming names, Brooke spoke about a ‘close friend’ who had pulled the focus from The Bachelorette finale with her actions.  

Brooke said the person’s behaviour ‘hurts me’ and ‘literally pains me’.

‘I’ve reached out to this person to resolve this “conflict” which in fact, classic naive me, adult me went to this person to communicate openly about the layers of complexity that this person’s actions show and take away from NOT only me but what it meant for a queer woman of colour,’ she said in part of her post.
