    Nadia Bartel has been at the centre of a scandal after she was filmed snorting white powder, believed to be cocaine, at an illegal gathering in Melbourne on Thursday. 

    And on Tuesday, former Bachelor star Rachael Arahill weighed in on the debate surrounding whether or not Nadia should end her friendship with the mate who leaked the footage by accident, Ellie Pearson.

    In a video on Instagram, the 26-year-old said that if she were in Nadia’s situation she would be annoyed at her friends for filming her in such a compromising position.

    ‘My thoughts on the Nadia Bartel thing. Hypothetically, if I were her in this situation, I would be annoyed at my friend for filming,’ she said.

    ‘We’re clearly doing some stuff that’s illegal and we’re all just trying to have fun.

    ‘I would be like, “What were you thinking? Obviously I wouldn’t be filming you, so I don’t appreciate you filming me.”‘

    Rachael, who starred on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor in 2019, said that despite being angry at her friend, she would take responsibility for her actions in such a situation.

    The Sydney-based personal trainer went on say that she doesn’t think the scandal is going to die down anytime soon.

    Victorians living under lockdown are prohibited from holding private gatherings.

    The mother of two issued a public apology on Friday afternoon, a day after the video was accidently uploaded to Instagram by her friend Ellie Pearson.

    The footage was published for about 10 minutes before being deleted.

    ‘Hi everyone, I have let you all down by my actions. I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future,’ Nadia wrote.

    ‘To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers trying to keep us all safe, I am embarrassed and remorseful.

    ‘I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust.’

    Nadia’s apology – which included an appeal for forgiveness from health workers – confirmed the gathering was held on Thursday evening.

    Daily Mail Australia understands the video was posted to Instagram by Ellie entirely by mistake, but that another member of Nadia’s social group quickly downloaded it and sent the damning footage to media outlets in an attempt to ‘destroy’ the WAG.

    ‘The cocaine video was deliberately leaked by someone within Nadia’s elite Melbourne social circle,’ a source said.

    ‘This is someone who for all intents and purposes seems to be Nadia’s friend on Instagram but they are secretly jealous.

    ‘They pounced on it and immediately sent it to people they knew could get it to the press quickly. This was part of a campaign of revenge… someone wants to shut her down.’

    Nadia and three other women in their thirties have since been fined $5,452 each for breaching public health orders.
