Australian Fashion Week: Phoebe Burgess is harassed by MAFS ‘troll’ Nasser Sultan


Mortified Phoebe Burgess is harassed by Married At First Sight ‘troll’ Nasser Sultan in the front row at Australian Fashion Week as he grabs the WAG’s jacket and desperately tries to speak to her

Phoebe Burgess had a prized front-row seat at the Oroton runway show at Australian Fashion Week in Sydney on Tuesday.

But the former rugby league WAG, 33, attracted an unwanted neighbour when ex-Married At First Sight star Nasser Sultan pinched a recently vacated seat next to her.

Sultan, 55, who has been described by former MAFS cast members as a ‘fame-seeking troll’, slipped into racing royalty Kate Waterhouse’s seat when she moved away and tugged on Burgess’ designer coat to try to get her attention.

However, the ex-wife of retired NRL star Sam Burgess turned her back on Sultan as he repeatedly asked for a photo and tried to start a conversation.

A snubbed Sultan ‘eventually gave up and walked off,’ an onlooker told Daily Mail Australia.

But he buttonholed Burgess once again after the Oroton show when he walked up to her outside the Carriageworks venue in Eveleigh.

Since starring in the fifth season of MAFS, Sultan has become a divisive figure and has been called a ‘troll’ and a ‘narcissist’ by former co-star Michael Brunelli.
