Mitchell Pearce has been working hard to win back his fiancee two months after he was accused of sending flirtatious text messages to a club staffer.

The NRL star’s wedding to pilates instructor Kristin Scott was called off just days before they were set to tie the knot in Byron Bay on December 29, and the couple have not been spotted together since.

But Ms Scott was last week seen at Newcastle Knights coach Adam O’Brien’s home alongside fellow club wives and girlfriends, Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The sighting is believed to be a ‘good sign’ her relationship with the former club captain is on the mend two months after his alleged indiscretion with a young female staffer.

Pearce initially denied there were any issues in his relationship – instead citing Covid as the reason for the shock postponement of his wedding.

But within days, rumours surfaced that he had in fact been caught sending texts to a woman behind Ms Scott’s back.

As a result, he stepped down as club captain and the wedding was indefinitely called off.

Pearce was scrubbed from Ms Scott’s social media accounts and she refused to comment on the state of her relationship. 

Pearce is understood to have been hard at work making amends for his mistake and rebuilding their relationship behind closed doors.

The couple were due to marry in front of 150 of their nearest and dearest in Byron Bay, including several big name NRL stars.

But the event was suddenly cancelled, despite some of the guests having already arrived in the coastal holiday town.

In the days to follow, there were reports Pearce had been caught sending intimate text messages to a Knights employee.

The messages were reportedly discovered by the woman’s long term boyfriend – who is close friends with several of the Knights’ star players.

He said in a public statement he and Ms Scott were ‘sorting things out’.   

‘For me it’s been a traumatic few weeks for my personal life and those I love,’ Pearce said.

‘Unfortunately my actions have impacted the team and more importantly the people I have closest to me, Kristin and my family. 

‘I love this club and I love my family and I’m committed to working as hard as I can to be the best man I can be both on and off the field.’
