Ines Basic and Martha Kalifatidis had a close bond on season six of Married At First Sight, but abruptly cut ties after filming wrapped in early 2019.
And now, Ines has revealed the real reason she and Martha are no longer friends.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Ines, 30, explained: ‘The fall out was just petty girl stuff and it got out of hand when I asked her if we could have a chat about it.’

Ines said that after asking Martha if she wanted to sort out any differences they had, Martha said that she ‘didn’t need to explain herself.’
‘I took that as in, if you were a true friend you would be open to having a level headed chat about it,’ she continued.
On Friday, Martha told KIIS 106.5 that their feud started because Ines wasn’t invited to the 2019 Logies – while she and her boyfriend, Michael Brunelli, were.

‘Michael and I were walking to the after-party. Ines walked up to me and she pretended to throw up on me,’ Martha said.
She claimed she’d greeted Ines civilly, and was upset when her former co-star dry-wretched in her direction. This snub, she said, was the start of their falling out.
‘I couldn’t understand what was going on. I had no idea what was going on because as far as I was concerned we were all friends,’ Martha told the breakfast show.

But Ines insists that wasn’t the case, saying: ‘I didn’t pretend to vomit on her for no reason, I don’t think anyone reacts that way for no apparent reason, so that’s the story behind that.’
‘It didn’t have anything to do with her being invited to the Logies, I think she may just use that as a reasoning to not have to talk about the petty drama which I get.’
‘It’s all really just stupid immature stuff that could have been handled better but I think we are both well past it and probably over hearing about it.’

Ines has explained that she doesn’t hold any ill feelings towards Martha, and ‘wishes her all the best’.
‘Martha does have some incredibly amazing qualities too her and I look forward to seeing what else she accomplishes,’ she said.
