'MAFS' star Bryce Ruthven has found himself at the center of a controversy yet again, and this time it involves the star's alleged 'sex tape'. Ruthven, who is a 31-year-old radio announcer and a member of Season 8 of 'Married at First Sight' Australia, has called out a gossip magazine for publishing an article with fake text messages by him.

In an article published by Women's Day on April 5, the website obtained a text message sent by Ruthven five years ago, where he addressees his alleged sex tapes and suggests that they should be leaked, so that he can get his own reality TV show.

The message, which was made public by the website, was allegedly shared via Facebook. It reads: "I don't care what (redacted) says about these 'apparent videos' - if they exist she should release them cause it could propel me into a reality tv series like the Kardashians." The redacted name he is referring to is a former ex. However, as reported by Daily Mail, Ruthven claims that the texts are not real. ''Someone has clearly sent them a photoshopped picture. You think it looks genuine?" He said when approached by Daily Mail for a statement.

"I know my Messenger set up doesn’t look like that, I’m sure yours doesn’t either. If it was real, where is the name of the person, their profile image, etc?" he added, questioning the legitimacy of the leaked messages. "I find it funny there's never any names attached to these things, just 'an ex' or 'a source'. All these claims seem as genuine as a leather handbag from Bali," he added.

This isn't the first time Ruthven has found himself in the limelight. In March, it was reported that he was flirting with former 'MAFS' bride Connie Crayden via text, while still engaged to his ex-fiancée Lana Bongioletti. Ruthven has come clean about the fact that by then, his relationship with Bongioletti was 'on and off'.

However, that was not the extent of his infidelity, seeing that a former one-night stand called him out publicly as well. In February, one of Ruthven's one-night stands confronted him while on air during The Kyle And Jackie O Show. The woman in question, Star 106.3 host Crystal Vas, called in to the show and revealed that she had slept with him while he was still with Bongioletti. She detailed how the night transpired on live radio.

"So 2017 at the Commercial Radio Awards - you guys know what the radio awards are all about. Boozy, people get a bit excited... I had sex with Bryce from Married At First Sight," Vas said.

Apart from his failed engagement, Ruthven's marriage to Melissa Rawson on the show hasn't been smooth either, seeing that Jason Roses, a radio presenter who attended the couple's wedding, revealed that Ruthven had a 'secret girlfriend' at the time of filming, a statement he made while on 'MAFS', unaware that the cameras were rolling. Roses admitted to it later on 'The Anj, Rob and Robbo Show'.

Ruthven and Rawson have had their fair share of issues as a couple, seeing that he's criticized her appearance, been known to gaslight her and even isolated her from the other cast members to a point where Ruthven's own mother questioned her as to why she was still with him.

However, it seems as though the couple has braved it all, seeing that they are still together.
