MAFS: Domenica Calarco sets the record straight on ‘nude photo scandal’

Married At First Sight star Domenica Calarco has spoken out about her ‘nude photo scandal’ that is the subject of an ongoing NSW Police investigation.

The Sydney-based makeup artist, 28, appeared to confirm on Thursday that the photo at the centre of the controversy was sourced from Twitter and not from behind an OnlyFans paywall, which led to questions over why the matter was being investigated by police.

Taking to Instagram on Friday, Domenica clarified that the origin of the photo was not relevant to the case, and the reason why she made a complaint to police was because of ‘what that image was used for and how it caused me pain and hurt’.

‘That is the issue here,’ she said in a video shared to her Stories.

‘It is not where the image came from and sourcing the image off the internet. That has been dealt with [by] the image abuse commission.

‘The issue that I have right now is the reason that the image was taken off the internet and how it was used with the intent to cause me harm.’

Domenica confirmed the police probe was ongoing and that the investigation had not been affected by her saying the photo may have been sourced from Twitter.

She also said she had never specified the image in question was from OnlyFans, only that it ‘came off the internet’. 

It comes after Domenica told Yahoo on Thursday that her OnlyFans was not even active at the time Married At First Sight was being filmed, so the only way anyone could have accessed her racy photos was via links on Twitter or Reddit.

‘If you clicked the link [to my OnlyFans] you would’ve seen that it wasn’t active and it would have taken you nowhere,’ she told the website.

‘It was all left online because, yeah, it was a link on a Twitter account or a Reddit account. Big deal.’

Domenica’s Twitter account, launched in November 2020 with the handle @Sunday09692571, featured ‘teasers’ of her saucy OnlyFans content – including the nude photo that was exposed on MAFS during filming last year.

She reportedly deactivated her OnlyFans profile when MAFS producers asked her to, but rival bride Olivia Frazer was able to find the Twitter account.

A source claimed Olivia was trying to dig up dirt on Dom when she discovered her OnlyFans past, and saw it as a way to embarrass her rival.

‘Olivia hit the jackpot when she found out Dom had actively promoted her OnlyFans profile on YouTube, and even had a Twitter page dedicated to it,’ they said.

After reportedly being discouraged from taking legal action against Olivia and the other MAFS cast members while filming was taking place last year, Domenica called in the lawyers in March as the scandal unfolded on TV.

She was pictured with her lawyer arriving at Newtown police station where it was believed she spent nearly three hours speaking to officers about her leaked nudes.

A NSW Police spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia on Thursday the investigation into the distribution of the intimate image was ongoing.

Radio host Kyle Sandilands has previously cast doubt on claims the ‘nude photo scandal’ was somehow a criminal act.

He said in March that Channel Nine ‘has a team of lawyers’ who ensure everything that goes to air is legally sound, making the police complaint a waste of time.
