The Veronicas Singer Jess Claims Ex Ruby Rose Is ‘Harassing’ Her
Ruby Rose's ex-girlfriend, Jess Origliasso, claims she's the victim of "continued harassment" by the actress.
The Veronicas singer made the claim on Instagram in response to a comment from The Meg star. Rose, 32, commented on a photo of Origliasso and new boyfriend Kai Carlton that she was "so happy" for the couple."
"@rubyrose I have requested you not contact me for over 4 months now. You have been given my grace of being ignored on every other private platform, so the fact you continue to ignore this to contact me here publicly under the guise of wishing me well is continued harassment," the 33-year-old replied.
The Australian star claimed she was unaware of Origliasso's desire to be left alone. She appeared to take the harassment allegation in stride, however.
"That is news to me. Copy that. Good vibes only," she said.
Rose and Origliasso dated for two years. Billboard reported that they started dating after Rose directed, wrote and starred in a music video The Veronicas were shooting in 2016 after years of friendship, and split early this year. The breakup appeared to be amicable, at least until their comment section quarrel.
In April, Rose confirmed the end of her relationship with Origliasso, claiming they "still love each other very much." At the time, she vowed to "always support her and be her biggest advocate." Origliasso didn't publicly comment.
That rhetoric changed a bit when Rose went after her ex-girlfriend's twin sister, Lisa Origliasso, on Twitter. In a since-deleted message sent after same-sex marriage legislation was passed in Australia, Rose made some lofty claims about Lisa's stance on the matter.
"So glad to see Lisa Origliasso screaming in excitement about the yes vote after telling us she thinks we should feel 'lucky' we don't get stoned to death like they do in other countries and to get over it a few months ago. Really warms my heart," she said.
Lisa denied ever saying that in a statement released shortly after Rose's tweet was sent.
"I did not make those statements and I do not hold those views," she said.
It's unclear what role, if any, the spat played in the recent Instagram drama between Rose and her ex. Neither Rose nor Origliasso has commented any further.
