Married At First Sight star Hayley Vernon has furiously shut down claims by a tabloid magazine that she’d admitted to being a teenage heroin user.
The recovered drug addict, 32, told Daily Mail Australia that she had only ever used meth and cannabis and did not appreciate having her troubled past misrepresented.
‘The [NW] magazine article claims I have been using meth and heroin since the age of 16 which is an absolute crock of s**t,’ she said.

‘I have been nothing but honest about my past and they are taking my honesty for a spin,’ she raged.
