EXCLUSIVE: Mia Fevola says her relationship with new boyfriend Bass Miller is ‘going great’ as she hits back at trolls for criticizing her for only dating footy stars
Mia Fevola has opened up about her new relationship with her boyfriend Bass Miller.
The daughter of AFL legend Brendan Fevola, 23, told Ny Breaking Australia during the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday that the couple are doing ‘great’.
‘It was amazing. “We went to school together, so we’ve known each other for over a decade, so it’s really nice to have him here,” she said.
“(He’s) someone I have a lot of trust with and can have fun with.”
She added: ‘My parents love Bass and he is very good with my sisters. It’s really nice to see the relationship he has with my family.’

Mia also revealed how she deals with trolls who criticize her for dating football stars.
‘I’m trying to take a step back. It was overwhelming, but I really leaned on my family and friends and kept quiet for a while,” she said.
‘You shouldn’t let that control your social life. I have no control over it, but I can control how I let it affect me. I still go out with my friends and family and don’t think about it.’
She went on to say that women should be able to date whoever they want without being criticized for it.
“You can date whoever you want and you don’t have to be ashamed of it,” Mia said.
‘You don’t have to worry about what people will say about it. If you’re happy and that person makes you happy, that’s all that matters.”

Mia’s dating history in the AFL world has been well documented in recent years.
She enjoyed a trip to Bali with Daniel Grant, who played for division club Sorrento Sharks, in July last year.
A photo was uploaded at the time of her sitting next to Daniel and some other friends as they enjoyed pre-dinner drinks.
She had since denied that their relationship was romantic and insisted they shared a close friendship.
‘It was amazing. We went to school together, so we’ve known each other for over 10 years, so it’s really nice to have him here. (He is) someone I feel very confident with and can have fun with,” she said
Mia previously dated Western Bulldogs forward Jamarra Ugle-Hagan.
Their relationship dissolved in 2021, just after his team’s defeat to Melbourne Demons in the grand final.
Her high-profile relationship with Daniel Rioli of the Richmond Tigers in 2020 also did not work out, but they have remained close friends.
Mia became part of a football family at a young age when her mother Alex married then Carlton striker Brendan Fevola in 2005.
