Controversies

Tahan Lew - Justin Bieber

The former Big Brother Australia contestant made headlines in December 2013 when she allegedly made Justin 70 minutes late for his Melbourne concert. According to reports, their Facetime call took place at the same time as the concert, but Tahan denied the claims. 'I spoke to him earlier in the day, prior to the show,' she told NT News at the time. 'I don't know why he was late.' said Tahan. Their call came about after Justin apparently asked a mutual friend to connect them. 'I'm friends with his official DJ Tay (James), I met him in New York last year,' she said. 'Tay was like "oh yeah Justin wants to talk to you,"' she said.

Tahan Lew - Victim of domestic violence

Former Big Brother star Tahan Lew-Fatt has revealed to Daily Mail Australia she was previously involved in an abusive relationship. Tahan, who is now dating racing driver David Reynolds, opened up about her experience after Mark Latham's appearance on Weekend Sunrise, in which he reiterated his opinion that domestic violence can be a coping mechanism for men.

'[A] previous relationship [of mine] was abusive so I have first hand knowledge of what it's like to be in that kind of relationship,' Lew-Fatt told DMA before revealing she agreed with some of the points Latham made on air. 'Even though I did not condone what happened during that part of my life... after counselling sessions there are bigger issues and I understood it more,' she explained. 'Lucky I got out when I did, but even though it wasn't healthy, there was still love and respect, just underlying issues that needed to be dealt with.' 'So what Mark Latham said [regarding] coping mechanism, I kind of understand where he is coming from. Like whether we [like] it or not [it] has some fact behind it,' she added. Lew-Fatt's statement comes after she took to Twitter to support Latham after he said on air: 'You can only go by the official statistics rather than left wing feminist hysteria.'

Tahan Lew - David Reynolds - Pu**y Wagon

Reynolds made headlines around the country when he used the derogatory term towards the all-women pairing of Renee Gracie and Simona de Silvestro in the Great Race. The 30-year-old was fined $25,000 for the inappropriate remark, and Tahan has spoken out in defence of her beau. “Ok so whoever has seen the news re my gorgeous ‘apparently sexist’ boyfriend David Reynolds he made an off handed comment that wasn’t even mean!!” Lew-Fatt claimed on Facebook. Lew-Fatt went as far as to suggest people should donate money to help Reynolds pay off his hefty debt, and that he had requested the money be donated to a women’s empowerment charity.
