AFL 2022: Jimmy Bartel does not follow ex-girlfriend Lauren Mand on Instagram

AFL champion Jimmy Bartel has ‘unfollowed former flame Lauren Mand on Instagram’ after going public with his new girlfriend Amelia Shepperd










Retired AFL champion Jimmy Bartel appears to have ditched his old flame Lauren Mand just weeks after making his debut with new girlfriend Amelia Shepperd.

The notoriously private Lauren, who was in a relationship with the Brownlow Medal winner from 2019 to 2021, is no longer on the list of accounts followed by Jimmy.

It’s unclear when the former Geelong player, 38, dumped Lauren, but they were connected on the social media app when they were dating.

Jimmy has yet to comment on his split from the glamorous office worker.

The exes never even announced their split, and many fans assumed they were still together until Jimmy confirmed his new relationship last month.

The footie star revealed he was dating Amelia, a saleswoman from Melbourne who also goes by the name of Milly, in an Instagram post on December 2.

He shared a photo of the couple kissing in front of the iconic Sydney Harbor skyline and captioned it “Happy”, adding a red love heart emoji.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Amelia worked as Executive Assistant to the Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of Queensland Rugby League from July 2019 to March 2021.

She recently returned to her hometown of Melbourne after spending several years in Brisbane for work.

According to a well-placed source, Amelia met Jimmy after they started following each other on Instagram.

They have reportedly been together since splitting from Lauren, 32, who he started dating after his split from ex-wife Nadia Bartel in 2019.

Jimmy and Lauren were the subject of breakup rumors in December 2020 after fans noticed it had been months since the sportsman had shared a photo with his then-girlfriend on social media.
