MARRIED AT First Sight Australia’s Jessika Power has lashed out at Brits after receiving backlash for saying she’s “dying” from a “bad kidney infection”.
The 29-year-old reality star claimed that UK followers “don’t get her sarcasm” after her hospital dash on Friday.
Taking to her Instagram Story, revealing that she’d been discharged, Jessika said: “The UK trolls hit differently, I woke up this morning to a few messages from people in the UK because obviously I was in the hospital over the weekend.
“I was really sick with a kidney infection. It was really bad. Really bad – I thought I had the flu, I honestly thought I had the flu.
“In one of my videos, I said: ‘I’m in the hospital and I’m basically dying’… And when my voice goes like that, how do you know I’m not being sarcastic?
“It’s called sarcasm. I know you Brits are a little bit dry, I had some messages from people saying: ‘Oh my god, did you know my wife, my this and that, had kidney failure’ and I’m so sorry.
“I’m sorry to hear if anybody has gone through that in their life or lost anybody like that due to any serious illness, but me saying ‘I’m basically dying’ doesn’t mean I’m a bad person.”
Jessika continued: “It doesn’t mean I’m looking for attention and it doesn’t mean I need to learn common decency for other people that are actually sick.
“This is my platform and if you don’t like it, b***h, there is an unfollow button and you can go press it an stay the f**k off my Instagram.”
The blonde beauty worried fans on Friday [26 February] when she revealed she’d been rushed to hospital in agony.
The next day, the controversial TV personality shared a video of herself looking uncomfortable while new boyfriend Filip Poznanovic styled her hair.
She said at the time: “I’m dying, basically. Filip’s doing my hair, good work bubby. I have a kidney infection for everyone asking as well.”

Jessika rose to fame on the 2019 series of Married At First Sight Australia, which has only just aired in the UK.
Brits were left shocked as they watched her scandalous affair with fellow contestant Dan unfold – behind both of their spouses’ backs.
She forced husband Mick to remain in the show so that she coul keep seeing Dan, and eventually they were allowed to continue on the series as a couple.
However, things did not work out in the long run, and Jessika went public with new boyfriend Filip last month.
