Michael Clarke’s friends ‘strongly advising him to step away’ from the public eye to save his reputation after late-night row with girlfriend Jade Yarbrough

Michael Clarke is being advised to keep a low profile after his late-night brawl with girlfriend Jade Yarbrough, according to a new report. 

The cricketer’s mates, ‘are strongly advising him to step away for a bit. He has to salvage his career,’ an alleged source told Woman’s Day this week. 

The friends allegedly have concerns his ‘lucrative Indian TV commentary role could be up in the air’ as a result of the fracas and that he could ‘burn bridges’ with those in his life, including good friend Karl Stefanovic, who is embroiled in the scandal.

Extraordinary footage emerged last Wednesday of a heated exchange between Clarke and his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough while they were on holiday in Noosa. 

In the video, which was filmed by an onlooker on January 10 and later sold to The Daily Telegraph for a reported $10,000, Yarbrough accused Clarke of cheating on her with his ex, fashion designer Pip Edwards, on December 17. 

Others in the group, including Today host Stefanovic, his wife Jasmine – Yarbrough’s sister – and celebrity accountant Anthony Bell, tried to defuse the fracas.

Yarbrough and Clarke, who was limping in the footage after injuring his hamstring, have since been slapped with ‘public nuisance’ fines.

A remorseful Clarke has since taken full responsibility for what happened.

‘I’m absolutely gutted I’ve put people I hold in the highest regard in this position. My actions in the lead-up to this altercation were nothing short of shameful and regrettable,’ he said.

‘I am shattered that because of my actions I’ve drawn women of class and integrity, and my mates, into this situation.’

Edwards also issued a statement on the night the footage was released.

‘This is not my circus. Yet again, Michael in his true nature has not taken responsibility for his actions and I was blatantly lied to,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
