Pup’s shock injury: Michael Clarke seen with huge bruise after brawl


Michael Clarke has been spotted for the first time following a blazing row with his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough and her brother-in-law Karl Stefanovic in a public park in Noosa.

Wild footage leaked last week between Clarke and Yarbrough saw the interior designer accuse the 41-year-old of sleeping with his ex girlfriend Pip Edwards behind her back on December 17.

On Wednesday, Clarke was seen with a huge bruise on his calf while getting into his car after a shopping trip in Sydney.

This is the first time Clarke has been seen since dramatic footage obtained by The Daily Telegraph showed him involved in a wild park brawl.

During the confrontation, Yarbrough slapped her boyfriend’s face and accused him of cheating on her with his ex Pip Edwards on December 17.

Yarbrough is now staying at her sister Jasmine’s house in Sydney where she has spent the last few days on the phone to a ‘desperate’ Clarke, who is begging her to take him back.

She has not been seen since footage of the ugly stoush was leaked to the press, but friends say she is ‘distraught and embarrassed’ by the video.

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

The dramatic footage shows a shirtless Clarke being screamed at as others in the group – including Karl’s wife Jasmine, who happens to be Jade’s sister – try to defuse the fracas.

‘I’m wrong?  I’m f**king wrong! You’re a f**king liar. I can see everything. You called her,’ Yarbrough screams.

Clarke tries to reassure Yarbrough he didn’t cheat on her and swears on his young daughter Kelsey Lee’s life he was with celebrity accountant Anthony Bell on the night in question last month.

‘Baby you’re wrong, you’re wrong,’ he insists.

‘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.’

But Yarbrough doesn’t believe his protests and claims she spoke to Edwards.

‘You’re f**king lying to me. You are a piece of s**t. I just spoke to her. What is wrong with you?’ she screams.

Clarke replies: ‘It’s not true, it’s not true.’

Stefanovic’s wife Jasmine eventually steps in, grabs her distressed sister by the arm and walks her away.

‘Get away with Karl, go with Karl,’ Jasmine tells Clarke as he unleashes his fury on Stefanovic.

‘Karlos, I can tell you now c**t, don’t you f**king walk away. She can, she can punch me, but you, you c**t,’ Clarke says.

This comment sparks fury from Jade, who defends her brother-in-law before slapping Clarke in the face.

‘You piece of s**t, don’t you f**king speak to him,’ she yells.

Bell is heard telling the couple to stop, which falls on deaf ears.

‘Go, hit me hit me… do it again, you’re wrong, you’re f**king wrong,’ Clarke tells his girlfriend.

Yarbrough screams: ‘Oh am I wrong? You f**ked her [Edwards] on December 17, you f**ked her… you’re a f**king dog… I’m going to show her every f**king message you ever f**king sent me.’

She then makes reference to a text she saw on Clarke’s phone inviting Edwards to come to India with him.

‘Oh yeah, ‘You’re the love of my life Pip, come to India,” Yarbrough snarls.

Clarke responds: ‘Don’t ever talk to me again.’

The two-minute clip ends with Jasmine and Bell separating the feuding couple.

‘Stop, Jade, stop,’ Jasmine pleads, to which Bell adds: ‘Let it go Jade.’

The ugly altercation unfolded in front of young children nearby, according to witnesses.

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

‘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,’ Edwards said in a statement.

The couple's separate plans over Christmas and New Year's sparked speculation the pair had called it quits following a short-lived romance

A week earlier, Clarke had attended a New Year’s Day bash at Sydney’s Bondi Icebergs alone while Jade was on the other side of the world in Aspen, Colorado, with Jasmine and Karl.

The couple’s separate plans over Christmas and New Year’s sparked speculation the pair had called it quits following a short-lived romance.

Clarke’s relationship with his former partner Edwards began in June 2020, following his split from wife Kyly, which they had announced four months earlier.

He and Edwards had been friends for more than a decade before that, but grew close while working on a fashion project together.

The couple called it quits in December 2021.

A source close to the pair confirmed the split, saying: ‘The decision was mutual. They’re two best friends who decided to part ways as a couple earlier this month, but continue their friendship.’

After their break-up, Edwards had a fling with Bondi restaurateur Cameron Northway for about four months, but that fizzled out and she got back with Michael.

Clarke and Edwards recently attended the New Year’s Day bash at Sydney’s iconic Icebergs.

The batsman was married to former model Kyly Clarke (née Boldy), 40, from 2012 until 2019, but the couple didn’t announce their separation until February 2020.

The Clarkes had kept their separation quiet for several months before she put out a statement on Instagram saying their priority was their daughter.

In a statement at the time, the pair said the ‘amicable’ decision to separate was ‘the best course’ for their daughter.
