Karl Stefanovic has had his fair share of totally bogus stories written about him in recent years.
The story about the 43-year-old “seeking comfort” from fiancée Jasmine Yarbrough after learning he’d missed on a Logies nomination was accompanied by photos of Karl looking distraught. Except that’s not what happened, at all.
On Kyle and Jackie O's breakfast radio show on Thursday, he explained the real story behind the photos.
"That was funny," he told the KIIS FM hosts.
"Someone sent me this New Idea thing and it's got me, I'm just absolutely shattered. And so they got a shot of me in Jas's 'embrace' and she's consoling me because I'd just found out about the Logies nominations."
"What had actually happened was we were getting our car washed at Mosman... [Jasmine] said I've got to 'shred for the wed' lose a few kilos. I said to her, 'babe, can I have a muffin?' and she said 'you're not having any muffins, shred for the wed, babe'."
And, as a "joke" he played as if he was over-the-top upset about not having a muffin and went in for a hug.
So what does Karl really think about missing out on a shot at a Gold Logie?
"I haven't been nominated for ten years. Who cares?" he said. (Although actually he was nominated for Popular Presenter in 2015.)
