FORMER Charlie Newling, the Australian Bachelorette, died in a vehicle accident in September 2023 at the age of 36.
His partner, Kristal Taylor, and his two children survived him.
Who was Charlie Newling?
Charlie Newling was an Australian reality television star.
He rocketed to prominence after appearing on The Bachelorette Australia, but he kept a low profile after the show.
Little is known about his personal life at this period, however he was supposed to have worked as a builder.
According to the Daily Mail, Newling led a turbulent life after leaving television, and he died on September 9, 2023, when his car plunged 230 feet from a cliff near Dover Heights.
At this time, details on the crash are unclear, but police said his death is not being treated as suspicious.
Who is Charlie Newling’s partner, Kristal Taylor?
Newling was in a relationship with Kristal Taylor at the time of his death.
The couple have been linked since early 2021, although it’s unclear how they met.
Taylor’s personal life is also unknown because she is generally out of the spotlight, however she reportedly had a kid with Newling just eight weeks before his death.
According to the Daily Mail, the former reality star also has a 13-year-old son from a prior relationship.
Prior to his connection with Taylor, Newling was linked to Honey Badger’s season of The Bachelor’s Dasha Gaivoronski and influencer Esme DeWitt.
On The Bachelorette Australia in 2018, Newling was one of the men fighting for Ali Oetjen’s heart.
During his time on the show, he was considered one of the frontrunners, but he faced backlash from viewers for refusing to present her to his family until they were “exclusive,” according to The Independent.
Finally, she handed her final rose to Taite Radley, and they dated for two years before splitting up in July 2020.
