In the last 12 months Karl Stefanovic has been one of the most talked about people in the country.
Speaking exclusively to Stellar this weekend, Stefanovic said he couldn’t believe the breakdown of his marriage to his wife of 22 years, Cassandra Thorburn, and his new relationship with Jasmine Yarbrough, was such big news.
The Today show host said his new-found infamy wasn’t something he expected, it’s taken some time for him to accept it, and he’s learnt a lot from the experience.
“I don’t know where it comes from, I don’t know what drives it; I guess as a public figure you’ve got to roll with it and I’m not as hard done by as many other people out there,” he said.
“I’ve gone through some personal stuff that’s been difficult on everyone in my family. That has been the hardest aspect: the increased public interest, or coverage, makes it more intense to navigate through. But it isn’t a world event, it’s not a national event, it’s not a community event. I don’t know where to place it. It confuses the hell out of me.”
