Karl Stefanovic's Divorce Has Just Become Difficult
Channel 9 has reported issued a ‘media ban’ on its major presenters so they are not able to answer questions about Karl Stefanovic’s personal life.
Photo shoots and interviews that have been arranged by the network have been cancelled, according to The Courier Mail.
The blackout its help keep Karl out of the headlines amid his separation from wife Cassandra Thorburn.
Sylvia Jeffreys, Karl’s colleague on Today and soon-to-be sister-in-law, cancelled a press trip for a local business last week and it was allegedly cancelled by Nine, but the organisers have blamed time constraints.
Sonia Kruger is also said to be part of the media ban.
The claims, which Nine has denied to The Courier Mail, follow a difficult few weeks of Karl who has split from his wife after 21 years of marriage.
The 42-year-old moved out of the family home to stay at his friend James Packer's $20million Bondi apartment; it was claimed.
Karl and Cassandra share three children - Jackson, 16, Ava, 11, and 10-year-old River.
