Karl Stefanovic and Cassandra Thorburn have been married for nearly 21 years and now rumours have emerged that they have called it quits.
The Today Show host, Karl Stefanovic appeared on the show Monday, but was absent Tuesday morning. This leaving Sylvia Jeffreys to step in to host with Lisa Wilkinson.
Sylvia was tight lipped about the issue on air when she said “[He] had a couple of loose ends on a story he’s finishing, so he’ll be back in the chair tomorrow.” Leading us to assume this is about the news articles that are being published about his personal life.
It was also reported that he was absent for a 60 Minutes segment, he was supposed to appear on this Sunday.
Following the split on Saturday, he has moved out of his own home with his wife and is now staying in a $20 million Bondi home owned by James Packer, his old pal.
A close friend reported they were ‘stunned by the separation’ and think it is important for the couple to work things out for their 3 children: Jackson, 16, Ava, 11, and 10-year-old River.
The couple met in the 90’s at the Melrose Party, when they were working for the Wollongong based television network, WIN. They were both employed by ABC in Rockhampton.
