MAFS villain Nasser Sultan has reportedly been left “confused” after Margot Robbie snubbed him at last night’s Babylon premiere in Sydney.
Margot Robbie, Diego Calva, Phoebe Tonkin and Samara Weaving all walked the red carpet at the event and stopped to sign autographs and chat with fans. However, it appears that MAFS’ Nasser didn’t get the one-on-one chat with Robbie that he was hoping for.
An onlooker told Yahoo Lifestyle Australia said that Nasser tried to get her attention, but Robbie simply walked past him and headed towards her fans who had been waiting for her.
“As soon as Nasser saw Margot he made a beeline for her with a big smile on his face and stopped and said hello. He then stood looking a bit confused as she failed to acknowledge him and kept walking towards her fans with her bodyguards,” the source said.
“It was awkward. Nasser then just stopped and watched her walk away.”
They added, “Margot spent as much time as she could signing autographs and taking selfies with the fans who had lined up for hours hoping to see her.”
And, it’s not the first time that Nasser, who appeared in season on season five of MAFS, has been snubbed on a red carpet. In November last year he was reportedly turned away when he tried to enter the ARIAs.

According to Yahoo Lifestyle, security checked the list of names of people who were invited, and Nasser’s wasn’t on them. Shortly after his snub, the reality star was seen making angry calls on his phone nearby.
“Nasser thought he was there as one of the big celebrity guests, had spent weeks planning his outfit and thought he’d be walking the carpet and interviewing all the big names inside. He got a reality check when he arrived and found out he was stuck behind a barrier,” a source told the publication.
However, despite the humiliation, Nasser manage to later sneak into the event and spent the evening avoiding security. The publication reported that he received media accreditation for the event, which means he was meant to stand in a small area with other journalists off the red carpet.
