Reports of Karl Stefanovic’s split from his wife Cassandra Thorburn came as a shock to Australia last month.

But apparently not to anybody at Channel Nine.

A source had told New Idea that ‘’They have been having issues for ages, and no-one at Nine was surprised when they heard they had split,’

The insider carried on to say ‘’He had been fed-up with being married to her. She was constantly fed-up and nagging him.’

It is claimed that their relationship hit a tipping point at the Logie Awards in May, when Karl was ‘’off getting drunk’’ instead of looking after his wife.

The star of the Today show has been known to have big nights at the annual awards ceremony for the TV industry.

This year, he admitted to turning up to work on just three hours sleep after pulling an all-nighter at the ceremony.


According to new Idea, former journalist Cassandra is planning to keep the family’s $7million home they recently purchased.

The mother of three put her career on old to raise their children and Karl has previously said how grateful he is for her doing that, saying ‘’’She gave up a promising career at the ABC and I’m forever thankful and tremendously appreciative of that.
