Sophie Monk denies reports of family rift

Sophie Monk has hit back at recent reports of the painful family rift that has emerged following her guestless marriage to partner Joshua Gross.

Sophie Monk has dismissed recent reports of a painful family rift that has emerged following her guestless marriage to partner Joshua Gross.

The Daily Telegraph last week reported that Sophie’s mother Sandi, father Andrew and sister Lucy were “unable to mend their relationship” with the former Bardot singer after breaking up several years ago.

But Monk denied the reports in an interview with Kyle and Jackie O this morning.

‘I actually don’t even know where they got it from. We always plan [getting married] myself,” he told the presenter.

“I don’t think you’re going to change your wedding plans for anyone, do you? So there is no truth to the story,” he added.

But Monk publicly acknowledged the family rift in 2020 when it was revealed he had blocked his mother and sister on social media.

“Like all families, there are differences of opinion … I’m sure everything will work out in time,” he said at the time.

The monk’s new rejection came after Daily Telegraph reported a family rift had formed shortly after Monk began dating Gross in 2018. Tensions were allegedly at one stage so high, Monk’s parents moved out of the Gold Coast home they had lived with for four years.

The outlet reports that while Monk and his parents are talking, the relationship between them is still “very strained.” Sophie and sister Lucy have “partially repaired” their relationship, but not enough for Lucy to get an invitation to the wedding.

Speaking to news.com.au in July last year, Monk appeared to be subtly teasing his plans for a guest-less wedding, saying he wanted “no drama” on the big day.

“I thought we were just going to stay calm, humble, and no drama for anyone. I just want it to be a great day between us,” he said.

In an interview about marriage with star Last month, Sophie insisted that the decision to keep the relationship intimate was the right one.

“We always thought we were going to elope.

“So many people say to me, ‘I don’t even see my husband at night; if my marriage is over, we will elope’. So we thought, why not just get married at home? I’ve seen people get really stressed about their marriage and our marriage is very stress free.”
