Olivia Molly Rogers’ admission after split from Justin McKeone

Olivia Molly Rogers has opened up about the breakdown of her marriage from Justin McKeone, four months after announcing their split.

The former Miss Universe Australia confirmed in an Instagram Story last October that “after four and a half years together, Justin and I have come to the difficult decision to separate as a couple”.

The news – just eight months after the couple’s lavish wedding on Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula – came as a shock to Rogers’ thousands of followers.

In a recent interview with Mamamia’sFill My Cup podcast, the 30-year-old admitted to host Allira Potter that she hasn’t “been that good at choosing partners”.

“It’s funny, I feel like I’ve always been quite good at choosing friends,” Rogers said.

“I just haven’t been that good at choosing partners. We’re working on that.”

Rogers said she’d “definitely” been putting herself out there more since her break-up from McKeone.

“You can get so comfortable in certain situations – whether that is a relationship with a partner or with certain friends that you’ve had for years – but they might not actually be serving you,” she said.

“I think it is important to always re-evaluate your relationships and see if they are bringing what you need. And if they’re not, then end it. I think there’s no shame in getting out of something that isn’t serving you anymore.”

While she hasn’t shared much of what led to the split, Rogers has been open in interviews and on her own social media about the steps she’s taken to healing.

“It’s a tricky thing to navigate because, obviously, there are two people in a relationship,” Rogers told Potter.

“Like, I’m such an open person and I want to share more, but I do also need to set boundaries and protect my ex in a way, I suppose.”

Having recently sold the couple’s home, celebrated her first Christmas and moved into her own apartment, Rogers said it had been “a bit scary” to “put myself out there a bit more”.

“You have to renavigate the world on your own and figure things out moving forward.”

The model told The Advertiser earlier this week she’s slowly but surely getting back into the dating scene.

“I don’t know if I’m ready for a proper relationship, but what I’ve learned in the past five months, [is] when I do end up in another relationship, I’m going to take it in [self love],” Rogers said.

“A big part of that is setting boundaries, learning not to lose yourself in a relationship and making sure you maintain your independence.

“I think in my previous relationships, I’ve had a tendency to sort of put someone else’s needs before my own, and push my own feelings aside to make sure that the other person is okay.”

She said that “once you really know yourself, respect yourself and love yourself, then you’re not going to take sh*t from anyone”.
