For years, Ricki-Lee has been classed as ‘Australia’s Golden Girl’, after finding fame in Aus, everyone was sad to see her first marriage fail and witness Ricki’s obvious struggle with her weight.

Then all of a sudden, something magical seemed to happen. She met someone – and Ricki-Lee started to smile again.

Suddenly, Ricki-Lee was shrinking in size, and it was reportedly all due to her new beau, who at the time the whole country believed was her personal trainer-turned lover. This certainly explained Ricki-Lee’s sudden interest in fitness – if I was involved with my personal trainer like that, I’d probably be really fit, too.


But just after the couple’s recent secret nuptials in Paris, Ricki-Lee has taken to Instagram to set something straight – something no-one knew was wrong in the first place, for reasons that are unknown.

I’m pretty sure I could take him in an arm wrestle…………….. 💪🏼😜

So WHY did EVERYONE seem to think he was her personal trainer?

There is a common misconception that has been going on for 6 years now…and I feel like if I don’t say something, it will continue forever. My husband Rich, is not a Personal Trainer – he is my manager. And he has been since 2010. In almost every article I have seen written about me…Rich is referred to as a Personal Trainer, which he isn’t. And that we met at his personal training studio. Which we didn’t. We met in 2009 in a bar in Melbourne at 1am & I was standing on a table skulling a jug of beer… cos that’s the kind of classy girl I am! Haha I’m not sure if people know what a manager actually does – so I’ll try and put it in a nutshell for you. EVERYTHING I do – he sets up & makes it all happen. Whether it be a single or album release, a music video, a live show, a tour, a TV show, a photo shoot, TV & radio or magazine or press interviews, appearances & songwriting sessions. Everyday he’s dealing with the huge team of people we work with on so many different things. Whether it be my record label, the marketing & publicity teams, my co-writers & producers from all around the world, mixing engineers, my publisher, my booking agent, my band & dancers, sound & lighting techs, my tour manager, video directors, photographers, hair & make up artists & stylists. He’s the one pulling it all together. It’s a huge job with so many moving parts & everything he does behind the scenes makes it possible for me to have the freedom to do what I want as an artist and focus on being the best I can be. And on top of all that…I can’t even begin to explain how much he motivates and inspires me creatively very single day. So when I see him referred to as a personal trainer – it’s SO wrong it’s not even funny. It’s lazy journalism and it’s incorrect. And I feel like it discredits everything he has been a part of creating – & everything he does on a daily basis. So please – to the people who keep writing it, stop with the Personal Trainer tag. Rich is my manager. And a great manager at that with a great reputation in this business. I’d like him to get the credit he deserves. It’s been 5 years now, it had to be said. I hope you all understand. xxx @blacklabelentertainment
