Phoebe Burgess misses Tahlia Giumelli’s baby shower amid feud rumours

It’s long been rumoured that Phoebe Burgess and her sister-in-law Joanna Burgess aren’t the best of friends.

Earlier this month, the ‘feud’ between the women appeared to continue, with Joanna holding a baby shower from which Phoebe was seemingly absent.

And on Saturday, it appeared tension was still rife, with Phoebe vacationing in Queensland, while Tom Burgess’ girlfriend Tahlia Giumelli celebrated her baby shower.

Tahlia, 26, shared a series of photos from her baby shower to Instagram Stories. 

The heavily-pregnant brunette stunned in a figure-hugging white dress, with the bash being nothing short of lavish.

The event was held at the upmarket 1908 restaurant in Sydney’s Cronulla, with guests including Phoebe’s sister-in-law, Joanna, 29.

Rumours of a feud began when Joanna shared an Instagram post about the Burgess family’s annual Christmas lunches, leading to speculation that she had taken a ‘swipe’ at Phoebe.

In a post shared to Instagram late last year, Joanna had claimed the most recent get-together, which took place at a restaurant in Watson’s Bay, ‘was the best one yet’. 

Phoebe wasn’t pictured in the family photo, leading fans to wonder whether Joanna’s post was a thinly-veiled swipe at her sister-in-law.

But Joanna clarified in another Instagram post earlier this year: ‘It is not in my nature to take a dig at someone.

‘Phoebe has never joined the Burgess side for previous Christmas festivities. Therefore it couldn’t possibly be aimed at her!’

She continued: ‘My last year’s Christmas upload I used a similar caption as it was our son’s first Christmas. This year we had our daughter join the three of us, hence it being the “best one yet”‘. 

Joanna later deleted the post.

In January, Daily Mail Australia revealed that Phoebe had unfollowed Joanna and George Burgess on Instagram. 

Shortly afterwards, Joanna likewise unfollowed Phoebe. 

That same month, Phoebe ‘liked’ an Instagram post from her manager Sharon Finnigan, which read: ‘It’s funny how you’re nice to my face. It’s hilarious how you talk s**t behind my back. And it’s downright comical that you think I’m unaware.’  

The feud came after a brief split between Phoebe and husband Sam Burgess, just three weeks after the birth of their second child, Billy Mark, in December.
