In a since deleted Instagram Stories post, the reality star revealed she was getting DMs from fans who implied she could work around the rules. 

She wrote in response: ‘Please refrain from your commentary. [The comments] are totally invalid to my situation. Yes I’m a WA resident. 

‘But I’m not coming back to WA for work/essential work, therefor I cannot really apply for an exemption. 

‘My sister passed in September, that wouldn’t be an accurate because as time would be a consideration,’ she added.

‘As for ‘connections,’ I don’t have some magic strings to pull. Even if people did, I wouldn’t feel entitled to do that. Everyone is patiently waiting to get back home or return to WA.’ 

Brooke announced the tragic death of her sister, Ky, in August, while she was working on The Bachelorette, and went through a difficult process to be allowed back into Western Australia for the funeral. 

‘Hey guys, obviously it’s been a while since I’ve been on here and we can all guess that reason,’ she began in her emotional and candid post.

She wrote in response to criticism from fans: 'Please refrain from your commentary. [The comments] are totally invalid to my situation. Yes I'm a WA resident. But I'm not coming back to WA for work/essential work, therefor I cannot really apply for an exemption'

‘On the 11/8 I had just received news that my sister passed away. I’ve thankfully had huge support from production and friends working tirelessly to get me back to WA so that I can mourn with my family’. 

Brooke then shared that she has had been rejected for a G2G pass [an allowance to travel to WA during Covid-19] multiple times, which left her feeling ‘depleted and distraught’.

However, she updated fans with some positive news, adding: ‘Finally last night my G2G pass was successful, let in under compassionate grounds.’
