Married At the First Sight bride Melissa Lucarelli accused her TV husband Dino Hira of secretly tapping her while on phone call.
In an interview with Perth 96FM’s Paul & Lise, MAFS bride Melissa Lucarelli accused her TV husband Dino Hira of secretly recording her conversations in two different occasions in order to try and “Gaslight” her in front of the cameras.
Melissa caught her husband Dino secretly recording her conversations for the second time while the spiritual guru was reportedly trying to prompt her to answer different questions in order to gaslight her.
“He was secretly recording me, there’s just no excuse for that and it’s creepy AF."
“Now he was secretly recording my conversation, the only way I found out about it was when I then caught him at another time trying to record a conversation between us where he was trying to kind of gaslight me into saying different things."
“That’s when I found out about (the recordings) … and he was sending it to people, so what else was he doing?”
According to some reports, Mellissa dumped Dino after her discovery.
Dino, on the other hand, denied the accusation.
A per some sources, Hira didn’t record Lucarelli with malicious intent, as he simply wanted to play the recording back to her so they could address it.
