A video of Married At First Sight star Nic Jovanovic, 28, engaged in a sex act is being circulated online, but he claims he has no idea how it was leaked.
And on Tuesday, the TV groom expressed regret over making an ‘unfortunate’ comment about marriage in the intimate video.
Speaking to Western Australia’s Hit Network’s Heidi, Xavier & Ryan, Nic said: ‘We don’t know how it got out. It’s not a nice situation.’

Firstly, Nic cleared up the buzz around the clip to the radio hosts: ‘It’s not a sex tape, that’s for sure! And I want to make it clear it was from a few years ago.’
The electrician went on to say: ‘There was a comment made in it that was said, but it was referring to the other party that was going through a divorce and it was a really really unfortunate thing to say.’
He said the clip was with someone who had recently been divorced, adding: ‘I made a comment saying it was tough being married. It was not a sort of joking thing and the other party that’s involved is pretty upset about things and I’m pretty upset too.’

Nic’s TV ‘wife’ Cyrell Paule, 29, told Woman’s Day’s MAFS Confessional podcast last week that people had sent her the explicit footage via social media.
‘I’m getting DM’d [direct messaged] right now a sex video of his,’ she claimed.
Cyrell alleged that the video was not ‘from the show’ and originally ‘came from someone in Perth’.

When asked if the man in the video was ‘definitely Nic’, Cyrell asked her interviewer: ‘Do you wanna watch it with me right now?’
Interestingly, when Cyrell began talking about Nic’s tape in the podcast, another voice (not Nic’s) could be heard interrupting in the background.
She hesitated at that moment, perhaps after being told by someone to stop talking.
Channel Nine declined to comment on Thursday, saying it was a ‘private matter’.
