According to sad reports this morning, The Today Show’s Karl Stefanovic is said to have split from his wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn.
The shock split is said to have happened in recent weeks, with friends telling The Sunday Telegraph they were “stunned by the separation”.
He has reportedly moved out of the family home they share with their three children and into his friend James Packer’s Bondi apartment.
Karl spoke last year about his admiration for his wife and the way she raised their three children, Jackson, 16, Ava, 11 and River, 10.
"She gave up a promising career at the ABC and I'm forever thankful and tremendously appreciative of that," Karl told the Sunday Herald Sun in 2015.
"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."
Karl, 42, and Cassandra, 44, said to be trying to work through their marriage troubles.
