Bride and Prejudice star Seyat Abazovski has sparked concerns for his welfare after a series of worrying social media posts on Thursday night.
The 20-year-old, who separated from his wife Jessica Jones, 22, in February, shared two Instagram posts in which he revealed his private struggle with depression.
Seyat also claimed he was living as a recluse and had stopped speaking to friends.

He wrote: ‘For months I’ve been depressed and everyone body needs to know the truth about me, therefore I recently stopped going out and talking to a lot of people, but hopefully one day I’ll be myself again.
In a separate post, Seyat continued: ‘So as much s**t I spoken about Jess, I’m currently apologise for it and I’m going to have to be the strong one and leave it in the past and focus on better and bigger things.
‘I would love to be mutual with you so just leave it as that and also congrats on passing your exams you’ve always been a smart girl and amazing in your own ways and wish you all the best in life.
‘I hope one day you will find someone, as they will be lucky! Good luck in the future @jessicajones.’

In February, Jessica announced that she and Seyat had decided to separate.
‘Seyat and I are still married but we are no longer together,’ she told her Instagram followers. ‘We have separated… because we are just too different and want different things out of life.’
But earlier this month, Jessica claimed there was more to the story.

She told Daily Mail Australia that Seyat had been unfaithful and wanted her to live with him and his mother on a full-time basis, which she was was not prepared to do.
‘[Seyat] cheated on me with his ex… two weeks after the show ended,’ Jessica said. ‘I haven’t seen or spoken to Seyat in months and I really don’t plan on it.’
She added: ‘He also didn’t want to support me studying in Townsville.
‘He wanted me to stay living at his house with his mum [in Melbourne] and wasn’t willing to grow up and be mature the way I was.’
After swapping Melbourne for Townsville following their split, Jessica has been focusing on her career and education.

Seyat and Jessica rose to fame last year on Bride and Prejudice, a Channel Seven reality show that followed couples getting married despite their parents’ disapproval.
Seyat’s mother, Fatima Abazovski, was famously nicknamed ‘the mother-in-law from hell’ because of her vocal dislike of Jessica.
In the first episode, Fatima said Jessica ‘dressed like a prostitute’, was a ‘s**tty party girl’, ‘w***e’ and ‘smelled like cats’.

Later in the season, she memorably offered her son’s then-fiancée $10,000 to end the engagement and get out of their lives.
Despite Fatima’s meddling, Jessica and Seyat ended up tying the knot in the finale, but their relationship fell apart shortly after the show aired on TV.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Seven for comment.
