Shocking footage has emerged of Karl Stefanovic embroiled with a late night heated exchange with good friend Michael Clarke in front of shocked onlookers in a public park.
The Today show host and Australian cricket great clashed while holidaying together with their respective partners, sisters Jasmine and Jade Yarbrough on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast on January 10.
All hell broke loose while the couples were having dinner at a beachside restaurant in Noosa with celebrity accountant mate Anthony Bell were at dinner at a beachside restaurant.
It’s understood the melee was over Clarke’s ex-girlfriend, high profile fashion designer Pip Edwards over recent text messages between the pair.
The dramatic footage obtained by the Daily Telegraph show a shirtless Clarke being slapped by his furious girlfriend as others in the group try to defuse the situation.
‘You f**ked her on December 17 … You f**ked her, you’re a f**king dog,’ Jade is heard screaming.
Clarke is is heard telling Jade he didn’t cheat on her and was with Bell on the night in question.
‘Baby you’re wrong, you’re wrong,’ he’s heard saying.
‘Baby, baby, Belly was at the house. I swear on my life, I swear at my life … That’s not true, it’s not true.
Stefanovic’s wife Jasmine steps in to grab her distressed Jade by the arm and walk her away as Clarke turns his fury on
Clarke, limping after tearing his hamstring earlier in the fracas when Jade dragged him to the ground, then turns his fury towards Stefanovic.
“Karlos, I can tell you now c**t, don’t you f**king look away. She can, she can punch me, but you, you c**t,” Clarke says.
Jade flares up again, defending Stefanovic, and slapping Clarke in the face.
“You piece of shit, don’t you f**king speak to him,” she says.
An onlooker was heard yelling “there’s children over there” and told the group to take their fight elsewhere.
Clarke has taken full responsibility for what happened.
‘I accept full responsibility for this altercation and am shattered by my actions,’ he told the Daily Telegraph on Wednesday night.
