‘I’d love if she dropped the Mrs from her Insta handle,’ the fan commented.

‘It’s only a technical issue. I am onto it though,’ she responded.

Phoebe is free to change her username whenever she likes, but since she has a verified account, she will lose her coveted blue tick if she does.

The 32-year-old is most likely trying to change her username directly through Instagram’s support team, which may allow her to keep her verified status on the social media platform.

There are many different benefits that come from being verified on Instagram, such as getting access to special features and being perceived as more trustworthy by brands and consumers.

Since splitting from her NRL star ex-husband Sam, Phoebe has largely worked as an Instagram influencer.

She regularly flogs beauty products to her 80,000 followers and is an ambassador for L’Occitane.

Phoebe’s ex Sam was recently crowned the winner of SAS Australia – being the only recruit to pass selection.

Sam and Phoebe were married for four years before splitting in 2019 and finalising their divorce settlement in 2020.

He revealed on the show he had been unfaithful to his wife during their marriage during the first episode.

‘I don’t think I was the greatest husband at times,’ he said to the camera. ‘I embarrassed my wife. I’d had an affair with a girl, a woman in Melbourne. That’s true.

‘I was away on tour, and regretfully that happened. Which would have been… it would have been a tough place for Phoebe to be.’

While pregnant with their son Billy in late 2018, Phoebe says she underwent multiple tests for sexually transmitted infections as a result of Sam’s cheating.

She claims that during the pregnancy, she also suffered through Sam’s ‘substance- induced screaming rages.’

‘These were things that I shouldn’t have been tolerating in a relationship’, she told The Australian.

‘I was still protecting someone who was broken and behaving in such an abhorrent way, you know, leading up to the birth of my son, the drugs, the alcohol, partying, the benders, the begging.’

Sam discussed his drug and alcohol abuse on SAS Australia, and attended rehab earlier this year.

‘I had a lot of personal issues going on, which turned me to drink and drugs,’ he said on the show.

‘Caused a lot of pain for my mum. She doesn’t deserve that, she’s a great mother, I love her to bits. Caused pain for all my three brothers, who I love more than this world,’ he added

The NRL star was also honest in revealing that co-parenting his young children, daughter Poppy, four, and son Billy, two, with ex-wife Phoebe, is difficult.

‘On top of that, my kids, I don’t see as much as I want. And that’s my biggest pain in my life at the moment, that I let my addictive personality take me the wrong way,’ he admitted.
