Married At First Sight’s Nasser Sultan visited women’s shelter Sanctuary Housing in Sydney on Monday, after being accused of collecting fake donations for domestic violence charities.

The 52-year-old visited their Camperdown refuge to help shine a light on the work the organisation do and to ask fans to show some support.

Earlier this month, Nasser revealed he was donating all proceeds from his Cameo sales to support domestic violence victims, but found himself in hot water when asked specifically which organisation he was giving the money to.

Speaking to The Wash, Nasser said of the mishap: ‘I’ve been asked for years to join Cameo so I signed up and set my video price at $5. When people started to request me I posted on Instagram that I would give everything to support domestic violence victims because I don’t need the money. Someone asked who I was going to give the money to and I said White Ribbon because I thought all I would have to do would be transfer it to them once Cameo sent the funds to me.’

When White Ribbon then responded to Nasser’s comment stating he was not an ‘authorised supporter’ of the charity and he would need to register before being able to donate, many started to accuse him of trying to scam fans.

Nasser then stated he would donate to 1800RESPECT instead, who responded saying they ‘do not accept donations or fundraising on behalf of third parties’, causing even more suspicion.

‘I never knew you had to be registered with charities and there was so much to it,’ Nasser continued, explaining he is sorry for any confusion and has since donated the $135 he collected to a local women’s refuge.

  1. I messaged Nasser on Jessika Powers Instagram because he was saying really really nasty things to her.
    I replied to his message on Jessika’s Instagram and said, ‘Nasser that’s not very professional of you considering you have all gone through similar experiences’.
    It was very disappointing to see Nasser kick Jessika down when she was at lowest point. She was bullied, trolled and went through severe depression. She didn’t deserve a colleague joining the horrid trolls and adding to it. He immediately removed his messages.
    Now he’s saying he’s doing something for domestic violence, or 1800RESPECT, but couldn’t give them the $135.00 because he isn’t registered? ? ? Everyone knows you HAVE to do the ground work, or at least research your cause/charity and make initial contact via their website or by ringing them before getting started. Is Nasser simply trying to look good????? He belongs in the same shameful box as Bella Varelis and Chappelle Corby, who try to look good by using the pitty card often.

    1. Just to clarify my comment above:
      This happened late last year and truth is in Nasser’s memory. (If he’s man enough to admit it).
      I went all out, along with many, many, Australians and replied to the trolls who were going on about Jessika’s full lips and her time on MAFS.
      She is totally adored by the larger percentage of Australians and should be back on TV. She has so much to offer. She’s professional, she’s admitted to her mistakes and works hard earning her income from sponsors promoting products.
