Lachlan Spark has left social media after posting several personal messages criticizing his ex-wife Lauren Phillips for being selfish during their short marriage.
The despised ex lashed out at Phillips, a respected Channel Nine TV reporter, on several occasions over the past week, exploding his lifestyle and revealing that he suggested he ‘lose weight ” to help the marriage function.
He last commented on the pitfalls of their marriage just two days ago – but Sunday admitted he regretted talking about Phillips and ‘letting his ego get in the way’.
“ It was incredibly naive and stupid of me to say anything about my experience, ” he told the Herald Sun.
Lachlan Spark has left social media after posting several personal messages criticizing his ex-wife TV reporter Lauren Phillips for her selfishness during their short marriage.
He’s in love: Lachlan said he met his new girlfriend Courtney out of ‘pure and stupid luck’, adding: ‘She knows how to love me like I’ve never been loved before … ‘love ”
“ I deserve all the criticism I have received and I regret the injury I caused. Return to anonymity for this fool.
Following this statement, Spark deactivated his Instagram page and did not indicate when he would return to social media.
In a shocked Instagram post making his debut with new girlfriend Courtney Wynbergen last week, Spark said he has sought more substance from a partner since his split from Phillips.
In the scathing assessment of his marriage, he accused Lauren of “ caring more about herself ” during their relationship.
“ A while ago I married a girl who cared a lot more about herself and how she was seen than about me.

“ I really believed there was more to a relationship (and life) than deep friends, free vacations, and Instagram followers – I just needed to find it.
“ As I approached my forties, I was more than a little nervous that I wasted so much of my life on the wrong person and that I had a good chance of finding someone who was ready ( or able) to give me the love I knew I deserved. ‘
But Spark has since changed her mind.
On Sunday, he said: ‘I’ve been very careful not to speak badly about Lauren since our separation because despite what we’ve been through, she’s a good person.
‘I stupidly let my emotions and my ego get in the way of my better judgment.’
Spark, who runs his own creative agency, then admitted that he suggested that Phillips “ lose weight ” in a follow-up interview.
He said it was not so much a list of requests as a “ framework for changes ” where he asked his then-39-year-old partner to be more active.
On Sunday he said: ‘I’ve been very careful not to speak badly about Lauren since we went our separate ways because despite what we’ve been through she’s a good person.
“ I said for this to work certain changes had to be made, ” the Antarctic marathoner told the publication, before slamming claims he had previously asked him to “ lose weight. ”.
“ Help me around the house, lift a bit, I told him, and I regret framing it like I did, but I said I’m more drawn to people when they’re active because i am an active person.
“ I could have stayed 20 years, but everything would have been on Lauren’s terms. Its conditions are good if you are satisfied with this lifestyle, ”he added.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Phillips for further comment.
The Weekend Today anchor has kept a dignified silence since her wedding was honored this week.
