Ever since Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough’s extravagant Mexico wedding earlier this month, tabloid headlines about Karl’s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn, and her reported strong opinion on the “over-the-top” celebrations, have been rife.
Last week, New Idea reported that Cassandra, who split with the Today host in September 2016, made an “extraordinary outburst” following the wedding, in which she reportedly said that their children – Jackson, 19, Ava, 13, and River, 12 – travelled with their father to Mexico, but did not attend the wedding ceremony.

“They were told they never had to go [to the actual wedding]. My 19-year-old has assured me they did not attend,” she is quoted in New Idea as saying.
“They [had] to go [to Mexico] and my eldest son went to protect them because at the commitment ceremony they tried to force my children, remember.”
There have been mixed reports on whether the kids attended any of the celebrations at One&Only Palmilla resort, but the magazine reports the 47-year-old said they did not.
Now, in an exclusive interview with Daily Mail, Cassandra and Karl’s eldest son Jackson has confirmed his mother’s comments.
