1. “I just hope that his kids are all right…” Why Peter Stefanovic feels so sorry for his brother, Karl.
The Stefanovics are no strangers to controversy, but recent headlines and constant media attention may finally be taking a toll on brothers Peter and Karl.
In a new interview with News.com.au, Peter admitted he’s worried about his 43-year-old brother.
“He’s a good man, I love him,” Peter, 36, said.
“If someone is hurting, you hurt with them.”
It’s been a rough couple of years for the older Stefanovic brother, who controversially left his wife, Cassandra Thorburn, with who he has three children, in September 2016, after 21 years of marriage.
He then began dating 34-year-old Jasmine Yarbrough, and the couple are now engaged.
Both brothers were also faced with a phone recording scandal, after their private phone conversation in the back of an Uber was made public.
But as hard as it’s been on his brother, Peter said Karl’s kids have also been caught up in the crossfire.
“I just hope that his kids are all right,” he said.
Peter also discussed the media attention that now follows him and his wife, journalist and television host Sylvia Jefferies.
“Sylvia doesn’t like going to the beach anymore,” he said, due to being stalked by paparazzi. “I don’t like going because she’s not there…
“I have great sympathy for what Karl is going through with all of that, because it can be unrelenting.”
