They had one of the nastiest breakups in Married At First Sight history.
But despite endless arguments and allegations of cheating on the show, it looks like Stacey Hampton and Michael Goonan are now good friends.
The exes, who were paired up in the seventh season of Nine’s Social Experience, enjoyed a relaxed outing to the Burleigh Pavilion bar on the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Stacey, 26, a single mother of two, looked very glamorous for the occasion in an alluring white skirt with a matching swimsuit.
She completed her outfit with chic sunglasses and a Louis Vuitton handbag, and styled her blonde hair in loose waves.
Meanwhile, 28-year-old businessman Michael flaunted his wealth by rocking a gold wristwatch and designer glasses.
Separately, he kept things relatively casual in a black shirt with rolled up sleeves, tight white pants, and tan moccasins.
Given the circumstances of their breakup with MAFS, Michael and Stacey’s friendship surprised many fans.
The couple ended things on bad terms during the cast reunion, which was filmed in January, when Stacey was accused of sleeping with another groom, Mikey Pembroke, which she vigorously denied.
Even before these allegations surfaced, the TV newlyweds had faced a series of setbacks – including Michael’s drunken kiss with his co-star Hayley Vernon (whom he denied) and their bitter argument over Michael’s alcohol consumption during their honeymoon.
Their closeness sparked rumors that they are dating again, but Stacey insisted they are not.
“ No, we’re just friends and we’re civilians, ” the blonde bombshell told the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday.
She added that she was Michael’s “wingwoman” on their trip to the Gold Coast.
“He had fun. He was dating several girls, ” she said, before adding that she was not one of them.
Michael also told the radio show: ‘We’re just good friends. She ain’t that stupid [to get back with me]”.
