AFL champion Jimmy Bartel has ‘UNFOLLOWED former flame Lauren Mand on Instagram’ after going public with new girlfriend Amelia Shepperd

Retired AFL champion Jimmy Bartel appears to have unfollowed his former flame Lauren Mand just weeks after debuting his new girlfriend Amelia Shepperd.

Notoriously private Lauren, who was in a relationship with the Brownlow Medal winner from 2019 to 2021, is no longer among Jimmy’s list of followed accounts.

It’s unclear when the former Geelong player, 38, unfollowed Lauren, but they used to be connected on the social media app when they were dating.

Jimmy has yet to comment on his split from the glamorous office worker.

The exes never even announced their break-up, and many fans assumed they were still together right up until Jimmy confirmed his new relationship last month.

The footy star revealed he was dating Amelia, a Melbourne retail worker who also goes by the name Milly, in an Instagram post on December 2.

He shared a photo of the pair kissing in front of the iconic Sydney Harbour skyline, and captioned it, ‘Happy,’ adding a red love-heart emoji.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Amelia worked as the executive assistant to the managing director and chief operations officer of Queensland Rugby League from July 2019 to March 2021.

She recently returned to her home city of Melbourne after spending several years in Brisbane for her job.

According to a well-placed source, Amelia met Jimmy after they began following each other on Instagram.

They have reportedly been together ever since he split from Lauren, 32, whom he began dating after his separation from ex-wife Nadia Bartel in 2019. 

Jimmy and Lauren had been the subject of break-up rumours in December 2020 after fans noticed it had been months since the sportsman had shared a photo with his then-girlfriend on social media.
