Former Bachelorette Becky Miles has hit back at a cruel Instagram troll who called her ‘painful’ after she was dumped by winning suitor Pete Mann.
The defence contracting specialist, 30, shared a direct message she’d received from the hater on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday.
‘No wonder your single, you are so painful,’ the hurtful message read.

‘Stop following me then. Simple,’ Becky replied, adding the middle finger emoji.
The reality star then shared the exchange on her main Instagram feed, and wrote: ‘Yeah cool, thanks’.
It comes after Pete confirmed his new relationship with Rachel Evans, just days after the pair were spotted canoodling at a Christmas party in Adelaide.
The café owner, 34, told Daily Mail Australia on Monday he’d fallen ‘head over heels’ for the blonde, who runs wedding planning agency Hygge Studio.

However, he denied reports Rachel was an ‘ex-girlfriend’, insisting they’d only dated casually before he filmed The Bachelorette earlier this year.
‘Rach and I are together now for the first time. We had been seeing each other only casually before the show,’ he said.
‘After filming concluded, we reconnected and I simply fell head over heels,’ he said, adding that he was ‘really happy’ with Rachel.
Last month, just hours after the season finale of The Bachelorette aired on TV, Becky confirmed her split from Pete, whom she’d chosen as her winning suitor on the show.

She announced on Instagram that things ‘didn’t work out’ for her and her man.
Becky then bravely fronted the media, breaking down in tears during back-to-back radio interviews as she revealed she was ‘angry’ at Pete for dumping her via FaceTime after only three days as a couple.
Pete also confirmed their split on Instagram at the time, writing: ‘The Bachelorette was such an amazing experience and one I’ll always remember.
‘I came on this show to follow my heart and find love but unfortunately in the end, true love was not meant to be.’
He then praised Becky as a ‘wonderful woman’ who deserved to find love and happiness.
