Pete Evan’s New Girlfriend Nicky Watson Hits Back
When your the new girlfriend with a tawdry past to reality TV’s boy next door, Pete Evans, you really need to not start talking to the tabloid newspapers.
Unfortunately Nicky Watson, Pete Evan’s new squeeze has not heeded this advice and talked to the Sunday Telegraph, hitting back at an article from last week where his former partner and mother of his children Astrid Ellinger talked about how she wasn’t happy with the new girlfriend.
However Nicky who now lives in Sydney returns fire:
KIWI model Nicky Watson has fired back at celebrity chef Pete Evans’ ex-partner’s “low” attack on her, saying she is down to earth and just misunderstood.
Watson last week came under fire from former competitive skier Astrid Ellinger, who had two children with Evans during their 11-year relationship.
It remains unclear how long Watson and Evans have been dating, however Waston confirmed she had been living inSydney for “a while now”.
“I love Australia, I love New Zealand. I love both countries,” Watson said.
The Christchurch-born socialite refused to say whether she was living under the same roof as the My Kitchen Rules star. “There is a family involved here and everyone needs to be protected, I will do my part in that.”
She said claims by Evans’ former partner that she was not down to earth were wrong but she refused to get into a slinging match.
“It’s over my head (how Astrid has treated me) and I won’t go that low.”
She added: “I have been portrayed (by Astrid) in a way different to who I really am.” Watson – who once featured in a one-hour documentary and admitted attempting suicide, using hard drugs, having threesomes and attending horse races with no underwear – said she was moving to Sydney to avoid media attention in Auckland.
“I have never sought attention. How many social events do you think I’ve been to? I can count them on one hand. I don’t seek publicity.”
