Daily Mail Australia has contacted Ruby and her manager Roxy Jacenko for comment.

Ruby is a doting mother to two sons –  Rocket, four, and Mars, three – with pro surf photographer ex Ryan Heywood.

While Ruby has been a social media influencer for years, she made headlines in October 2020 for holding up a Jetstar flight to eat a plate of oysters.

She was due to fly from Byron Bay to Sydney on Thursday at 5pm but a technical issue caused the flight to be delayed.

The budget airline asked travellers to stay put while waiting for an engineer, and told passengers the new departure time would likely be about 7.30pm.

But Ruby and her travel companion left the airport to grab a bite to eat at a beachside restaurant, holding up the plane an extra 30 minutes as it waited on the tarmac for the pair to return.

In videos exclusively taken by Daily Mail Australia of the flight, frustrated passengers could be heard heckling the single mother-of-two as she boarded half an hour after the plane was due to take off.

Footage showed passengers shouting ‘how were the oysters’ and ‘what a day to be pretty’ as she entered the aircraft.

When the plane touched down in Sydney, Ruby wasted no time in calling out Jetstar on her Instagram page, slamming the airline for their handling of the incident.

'Flight delayed f**k my life': While most other travellers remained at the terminal and purchased food from the cafe at the airport, Ruby and her travel companion decided to leave the airport to grab a bite to eat instead

She blamed Jetstar for what had happened and told the other passengers to ‘grow up’. 

She also claimed she was met with ‘very personal comments’ when she got on the plane.

‘I was basically bullied by about seven to 10 to 14 people at different times, then they made comments about my children. No Jetstar staff stopped this at any time. I copped it hard for about 15 minutes.

‘I was scared for myself because number one, I was by myself…number two, no one else who was later than me copped any abuse, it was just me alone.

In January 2019, she sparked controversy when she admitted to relying on a combination of cigarettes, black coffee and cocaine to maintain her 54kg frame prior to giving birth.

The then 25-year-old also claimed drug use was rife in the glamorous social media industry, revealing that most influencers take cocaine to stay thin.

‘I need to be careful what I’m saying here, but in the influencer industry, everyone loves the baggie,’ she wrote.

‘That is how most physiques are maintained.’

‘A lot of people never really understood how I could eat and still be so thin, but I guess it’s pretty easy to hide an addiction,’ Ruby added.
