Tony Armstrong is not secretly married despite rumors

Beloved ABC star Tony Armstrong is the star of Stellar magazine this week — and in the accompanying interview, the recent Logie winner for Most Popular New Talent talks about some of the more unusual attention he’s received during his rise to fame. .

The 32-year-old AFL player and ABC News Breakfast presenter addressed a surprising rumor that has arisen about his personal life. No, Tony Armstrong is not secretly married.

“If I had a secret wife I’d been hiding all this time, do you think I’d tell you?” he told Zodiac signwhile also opening up about whether he would consider getting married in the future.

“It has to be someone very special and I think I need to be in a space where I can also give them what they need… I don’t want anything. The only, you know, money worries I have are, “Can I pay off my mortgage and live the life I want?”

“I think anything other than that is superfluous. I’m just trying to remind myself to enjoy the ride and not believe in things when they’re going well. And don’t get too caught up in it if you don’t.”

Armstrong also downplayed his recent Logies win for the coveted Graham Kennedy Award for Best New Talent.

“Nowhere on the Logie does it say that you are really good at your job. It’s for the most popular new talent. What that means is fucking nothing, apart from a popular vote. I mean, it’s flattering… and I’m very smug about it to my friends – that’s how I end any argument. But that’s it.”

Armstrong’s performance at this year’s Logies made headlines for a different reason, after he hit back at a Twitter troll who accused him of “virtue signaling” for making an acknowledgment of the country while onstage.

The Twitter user – insisting it was time to “drop this crap” – got a surprising response from Armstrong, who quickly put him in his place: “Shut up, bro,” he replied. “I am a blackfula and I am obliged to respect the country where I am.”

Speak with Zodiac signArmstrong said it was a no-brainer for him to respond.

“To be honest, I don’t care what people think. I’m going to say what I think is right. I could never pretend to speak for all Indigenous people, but I can talk about what I know is right. I don’t always get it right…but I never try to be an accomplice.”

Armstrong brushed aside another rumor about himself in a recent interview with news.com.au, laughing at speculation that he might one day find love on TV on a show like The Bachelor.

“The more people are interested in talking to me, the less I want to do in a public place,” he said with a laugh when asked about persistent Bachelor education rumours, adding that his “frightening” red carpet debut at the Logies was enough to get him out of his comfort zone.

“I really didn’t enjoy the red carpet… going to events and stuff like that, I never will,” he said.

The Truth About Tony’s OnlyFans

A wild rumor about Armstrong that turned out to be true: Yes, he started an OnlyFans account last year (despite initially denying it was real).

Armstrong was spotted in a verified account on the raunchy subscription-only platform.

At the time he denied that he was, as news.com.au reported, but it has since become clear that it was actually set up as a ploy to get fans to donate to The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, conceived with the owners of lifestyle brand Skwosh Club, Jack Watts and Jack Turner.

“I’m actually still waiting to get paid for it,” he recently explained to news.com.au.

“I did it because I was sitting with some friends, Jack Watts and Jack Turner, and they had a charity show with shorts, and we thought, wouldn’t it be funny if we trolled something and trick people into donating? money’.

“As soon as they got into the OnlyFans, they’d realize that a subscription was for this good cause… It was just pictures of me having cups of tea or with a book or something. We ended up getting quite a few subscriptions.”

When asked if he had permission from the ABC to join the site for the three-week stint, he sheepishly replied that he “later found out it was meant to be”.

“I wouldn’t say I got into trouble … I had ‘a chat,'” he revealed.
