Dave Hughes hits back at Vanessa Sierra amid Bernard Tomic split drama

Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes has returned serve in his war of words with tennis WAG Vanessa Sierra.

The radio host, 50, insists he never betrayed the OnlyFans star’s confidence when he claimed she had ‘broken up’ with former world No. 17 Bernard Tomic.

He had announced their ‘split’ on 2Day FM on Monday, only for her to accuse him of spreading ‘fake news’ and using ‘off-the-record’ quotes.

And in the latest chapter of the saga on Tuesday, Hughesy told Fifi, Fev and Nick he hadn’t repeated anything on air that Vanessa, 25, said was ‘off the record’.

‘I didn’t break her confidence,’ he said, defending his journalistic integrity.

‘When you’ve got [an] Instagram [post] with a broken heart emoji, people are going to think you’re broken up, aren’t they?’ he added.

Hughesy did confirm he and the Love Island star had exchanged messages on Instagram about her ‘split’ with Tomic.

‘She said “can we keep this private?” but I’d already teased on air that I was messaging her,’ he added.

‘As soon as she said “off the record” I did not say what she told me, and I won’t tell you either. I’m a great guy,’ said Hughesy. 

The 2Day FM host then claimed Vanessa had doctored screenshots of their DMs which she said disputed his initial report she’d split from Tomic

‘You know what, she’s edited the screenshots online as well,’ he said.

Hughes did not disclose the original contents of the pair’s private conversation.

Sierra initially lashed out at Hughesy after he claimed she told him she’d quietly split with her boyfriend of eight months Tomic.

Dave made the comments on 2Day FM’s The Morning Crew radio show, saying Vanessa had confirmed the break-up to him ‘off the record’.   

‘It’s fair to say they’ve broken up,’ Hughes told his co-hosts Erin Molan and Ed Kavalee, adding that he did not know the reason for the split.

Dave added: ‘This is as much as I can share, Erin. I’ve already said too much.’

Vanessa later denied confirming the split, posting on Instagram Stories: ‘For anyone who listened to Hughesy on the radio I never confirmed a break-up. 

‘My initial response saying “I don’t talk to media” does not count as a reply to his DM. Clearly off the record means nothing these days.’
