Karl Stefanovic says "breakups are no-one’s business".

Karl Stefanovic is no stranger to having his relationship scrutinised by the public.

Over the weekend, it was reported that the Today Show co-host had split with his wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn, and was staying at business mogul James Packer’s Bondi apartment.

After his noticeable absence from the show yesterday, Karl returned to our screens this morning and wasted no time sharing his thoughts on the gossip surrounding celebrity couples.

While discussing news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were headed for divorce, Stefanovic said, "you can obviously argue it is no one’s business what is going on inside there".

He did agree that because the relationship is so high profile, it's a "tough situation" to talk about.

“She gave up a promising career at the ABC and I’m forever thankful and tremendously appreciative of that,” he says.

“Cass wanted to be at home, and wants to be there now, and we’re very lucky to be in a financial position where we can do that."

“But should she ever want to go back to work, then of course she can."
