Jett Kenny went through a years-long harrowing ordeal with a Tinder stalker, which ultimately forced him to ask out his now-girlfriend Lily Brown.
Jett, 29, claims he matched with a woman on the dating app ‘years ago’ and she started showing up at the same place as the Ironman.
Telling the story in detail with Lily on her podcast Red Hot The Pod last Monday, the son of Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny said his ‘stalker’ even turned up outside his Sunshine Coast home once.
Jett even spotted her sitting on a bench across from his riverfront home, until one day she handed him a letter and asked him out.
He called Lily, who was just his friend at the time, and read the letter to her, explaining all the details of his apparent stalker.
It was at this point Lily, 25, suggested the SAS Australia star tell his former Tinder flame he had a girlfriend.
‘I didn’t mean when I said tell her you have a girlfriend, I didn’t mean me. Obviously this f**king worked out. But I just meant for you to say it to throw her off,’ she said.
Jett responded: ‘At the same time, in that moment, I realised you were my girlfriend. Sorry not “were”, but like, this is someone I wanted to pursue something with.’
Jett went on to ask Lily out during that phone call and made things official.
After detailing the shocking tale to their listeners, Lily gloated over stealing Jett from the ‘stalker’, saying: ‘I hope she listens [to the podcast]. This is for you, you little creep. Little creeper. I win.’
Lily and Jett revealed their relationship last December after weeks of rumours.
The model and influencer both shared the same photo of them kissing to Instagram on New Year’s Eve.
Jett captioned his romantic post, ‘To the future,’ alongside a pair of love heart emojis.
Lily meanwhile wrote alongside her own re-post of the photograph: ‘You’d be a tough one to keep a secret.’
