Nadia Bartel is iced out of event in Melbourne as her WAG friends including Rebecca Judd attend


Nadia Bartel has kept a low profile ever since a video of her ‘snorting white powder’ and breaking Melbourne’s strict lockdown on September 2 went viral.

And on Thursday, the Henne creator was noticeably absent from Bar Bambi’s launch night in Melbourne.

Nadia’s best pals WAGs Bec Judd, 38, Kylie Brown, 40, and Jessie Murphy, 30, sipped cocktails at the restaurant opening.

At the event, Rebecca channelled the days of disco in an attention-grabbing sparkly jumpsuit as she partied with her friends and husband Chris Judd.

Jessie Murphy also looked elegant in a long black dress and was accompanied by her husband, Marc Murphy.

Bec and Jessie were joined by Jaggad co-founder Michelle Greene and Kylie Brown at the star-studded event.

Comedian Andy Lee was also on hand for the opening, stepping out with longtime girlfriend, Rebecca Harding.

Love Island star Tayla Damir, 24, was accompanied by her fiancé Nathan Broad at the event.

In 2019, Nadia was front and centre as she enjoyed a trip to Coachella with her fellow WAGs Rebecca, Jessie and Kylie.

The group had a ball as they lapped up cocktails in the sunshine, pool parties and musical performances.

Nadia only recently returned to Instagram to spruik her fashion label, after keeping an incredibly low profile since her ‘snorting scandal’ came to light.

She was filmed by her business partner Ellie Pearson breaking Melbourne’s lockdown and snorting white powder at an illegal gathering at a friends house back in September.

Ellie accidentally uploaded the footage on her Instagram page, with Nadia breaking her silence with a public apology one day later.

‘Hi everyone, I have let you all down by my actions. I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future,’ Nadia wrote in a post.

‘To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers trying to keep us all safe, I am embarrassed and remorseful.

‘I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust.’

At the time private and public gatherings were not permitted in Melbourne, where Bartel lives, under Victoria’s Covid restrictions.

Nadia’s apology – which included an appeal for forgiveness from health workers – appeared to confirm the gathering was held on Thursday, September 2.

A later report claimed the video first found its way online due to Ellie having a cracked phone screen.

It’s alleged she was attempting to send the video to her sister; however, because her phone screen was damaged, she hit the wrong buttons.

As a result, the clip was posted to both Instagram and Facebook, and was online for about 10 minutes before being deleted, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

But it was quickly copied by others and shared around.

Nadia and three other women were each fined $5,452 after damning footage of the party was posted on Instagram.

Nadia wasn’t charged with drug offences, because police couldn’t prove what she was snorting.

The influencer is a mother of two and the ex-wife of retired AFL star Jimmy Bartel, a Brownlow Medallist who spent his career with the Geelong Cats.

The couple split in 2019 after five years of marriage.
