The rumour mill was sent into overdrive last month after Today show host Karl Stefanovic split from his wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn.

And now, his co-host and good friend Lisa Wilkinson has slammed all the ‘lies’ that have been published in magazines about Karl’s split.

The 56-year-old said she is ‘angry’ and ‘disgusted’ about the reports as she is concerned for Karl, Cassandra and their three young children.

‘He’s good,’ Lisa said of Karl on Mammamia.

‘There’s a lot of rubbish out there, a lot of lies,’ she said.  

Lisa went onto say that she is disgusted by the media outlets who made up the stories and the comments people were leaving on them.

‘I am disgusted with some sections of the media at the moment and some of the comments sections, the fact they have no moderators at all and the complete, well again, lies that are published without any regards to the fact that there are human beings involved here and there are children involved.’  


She added: ‘My anger knows no bounds over that and I feel very protective towards the people involved. But you don’t want to give it oxygen.’

Karl and Cassandra’s 21-year marriage ended in September, and Karl has reportedly moved out of their family home. 

Recently, Channel Nine boss Darren Wick confirmed the morning TV host would be taking at least a month off work as he deals with family issues.
