It was one of 2019's most bizarre celebrity feuds which started when Sunrise co-host David Koch accused MAFS' Martha Kalifatidis of elbowing him at the Logies.

And now, the reality TV star's manager Kat Moses has revealed what really happened the day the story broke. 

Speaking on the Rogue podcast, she explained: 'Martha called me and we were talking about it and she was like "I want to do a video. I want to come out and say what really happened".'

'And I was like "no no no just shut up for a second", but it wasn't until I had received an email from a media outlet and they wanted to get her comment on the story.'

Kat continued: 'I called Martha and just said drop the video. She was like "omg I just filmed it" and when she came out with that, that was the comment.'

She explained that the video gave Martha the opportunity to share her side of the story and also surprisingly increased her social media following. 

'It was actually really nice for the public who didn't know her before to see that side of her,' she said. 

The whole saga started after David 'Kochie' Koch told his Sunrise co-stars that he was 'bruised' after being 'elbowed' by Martha on the red carpet at the Logies.

Newsreader Natalie Barr then branded Martha 'fierce', with Sam Armytage mocking her dwindling '15 minutes of fame'.

'Do not get between Martha and the camera,' sports reader Mark Beretta joked.

Hitting back, Martha took to YouTube to deny the claims, accusing the Sunrise team of 'bullying' her and 'inciting hatred'.

The saga continued for a week, with David than poking fun at Martha's video during a segment about the horror film It Chapter Two.
