Married At First Sight’s Duncan James stands up for ex-wife Alyssa following ‘horrible’ backlash – after he dumped her at final vows

Married At First Sight groom Duncan James came to the defense of his ex-wife Alyssa Barmonde on Monday – after brutally dumping her during Sunday’s episode.

The sales director, 36, told News.com.au that Alyssa, 35, did not deserve the negative reaction she was getting on social media from people calling her a ‘villain’.

‘The stuff that people are saying about her… I hate it. No one deserves some of those horrible comments,’ he said.

Duncan then said he had reached out to Alyssa since their break up and asked her what he could do to help.

‘If anybody asked me, in any interview, about Alyssa, you’ll always see I talk positively of her, because that’s what I genuinely think about her,’ he revealed.

‘It’s crazy how cruel some people can be behind a keyboard when they’ve seen one aspect of somebody’s life.’

It comes after MAFS fans slammed jilted bride Alyssa Barmonde over her criticism of husband Duncan James during Sunday night’s episode. 

Duncan brutally dumped Alyssa during their final vows after she blamed him for their marital issues and said he needed to ‘change’ to make things work.

Furious viewers called out the single mother from Utah for failing to take accountability for her controlling and ‘gaslighting’ behaviour.

‘Alyssa is completely delusional,’ one wrote.

'The stuff that people are saying about her… I hate it. No one deserves some of the horrible comments people have said,' he said

Another agreed: ‘Alyssa lives deep in her delusional victim narrative – completely ignorant of reality. She labels other people with her own character flaws and labels herself as a superior empath. She won’t learn from the series.’

Alyssa later admitted hearing Duncan say he didn’t want to be with her was soul-crushing.

‘Walking away absolutely devastated me. I feel sick and betrayed,’ she said. 

Daily Mail Australia understands the pair have only exchanged texts ‘once or twice’ since filming wrapped. 

‘They’re not even on speaking terms at the moment,’ a source revealed.
