Why did Imogen Anthony and Kyle Sandilands break up?

Speaking on Mammamia’s No Filter podcast with host Mia Freedman, Kyle revealed the 19-year age gap between him and Imogen led to the demise of their relationship.

In the candid discussion, he admitted: “It’s not as if we couldn’t get on. It’s just I was going into my twilight years, and she was just becoming a woman.

“It was just one of those things that it was fun while it lasted and it was great, we enjoyed a lot of things about each other, but some of these things they come to an end sometimes.”

Despite maintaining that they’re on good terms, Imogen made claims about experiencing a toxic relationship on her Instagram.

“I know about gaslighting,” she wrote.

“I’ve also never been the greatest judge when it comes to the quality of a man, have I? So we will let that one go.”

“After being with old mate for the last 10 years, you know you kind of learn things, and no one knew more about behind the scenes than Kyle did, and he told me everything.”

The couple were together for ten years.

Imogen gets candid about her tough past

In 2019, Imogen opened up about the traumatising bullying she faced as a teen that ultimately led her to leave school in year 11 and pursue modelling.

The reality TV star shared two lengthy posts to her Instagram detailing the abuse she faced, which caused her to struggle with depression and anxiety.

“I grew up with zero self-confidence and was far from ‘skinny’, some days I literally had no one to sit with or even talk to,” she wrote.

Imogen also recalled a story from her school days that triggered her body dysmorphia.

“He [Imogen’s classmate] teased me in front of everyone, saying that I ‘had a gut’ after I finally got to wear that Jay Jay’s denim pleated skirt I wanted sooo badly on a (free dress) day.

“I didn’t realise until later how much that f***ed up my reactive mind.

“I wasn’t even aware of body issues until that exact moment,” said Imogen.
