Erika and Stephanie’s relationship

Owens and Matto had a pretty volatile relationship. From the moment Matto arrived in Australia, it was clear that the two had different expectations of what their relationship would be like. Matto was uncomfortable touching or being intimate with Owens. She was also extremely jealous of Owens’ past relationships and friendships. Things eventually came to a head when Matto began breaking things during one of their fights and Owens decided that it was all too much for her.

“If I had known that a lot of the aspects of my lifestyle were dealbreakers for Stephanie, I would have said, ‘Don’t worry about coming,’” Owens told Entertainment Tonight. “This is who I am, and I’m not going to change that. Like, this is how I live my life. … I travel a lot and I do a lot of things I guess regular people wouldn’t do …. but Steph wasn’t OK with a lot of parts of my life. And I probably would have just gone, ‘Well OK, that’s fine. I wish you would’ve told me that before you came here because I wouldn’t have entered into it, you know?’”

Erika Owens’ new boyfriend

During the tell-all reunion special, Owens said that she had been single since her split from Matto. But all of that has changed. On July 20, she debuted her new beau.

“You make me feel every single color of the rainbow,” she captioned a picture of the two of them. “I can’t wait to see the world together and make every minute a grand adventure. So thankful and so so happy.”

She also addressed haters who might have thoughts about her being with a man after dating Matto.

“P.s leave any bi-phobic comments at the door,” she continued. “I’m still here, still queer and being with this amazing human now doesn’t mean I’m not bisexual and it does NOT invalidate my sexuality. Much love x.” ⠀

Does Stephanie have a new partner?

Though Matto hasn’t made any posts announcing a new relationship, she did reveal that she’s in a new stage in her life.

“When a girl dyes her hair it signals a new era,” she captioned a recent picture of herself. “This is my brown hair era. Welcome b*tches. Buckle up!!”

Hopefully, this era will be filled with a healthier relationship.
