Karl Stefanovic’s shock spilt from his wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn is said to have taken friends and family by surprise.
It’s understood the 42 year old Today show host has moved out of the family home he shares with wife Cassandra and their three children- Jackson, River and Ava- and is said to be staying at friend James Packer’s Bondi apartment.
Karl had recently spoken about his wife, praising her for giving up her own career as a journalist to support his television career.
“She gave up a promising career at the ABC and I’m forever thankful and tremendously appreciative of that,” he told the Herald Sun late last year.
“Cass wanted to be at home, and wants to be there now, and we’re very lucky to be in a financial position where we can do that. But should she ever want to go back to work, then of course she can.”
Friends of the couple have been left shocked by the separation although it’s understood the pair are trying to work their marriage out.
