Exclusive: Karl Stefanovic’s ex Cass called the cops on his big day

Only in New Idea.
Karl's split from Cass has been devastating for his family and his image.

In a sensational new bombshell, New Idea can reveal that Karl Stefanovic’s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn called the police on the day of his extravagant commitment ceremony.

Police sources confirm that Cass phoned the cops after becoming concerned about their children. The call coincided with the estranged couple’s two youngest children, Ava and River, attending his big day with girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough – but it’s not clear what sparked Cass’ concerned call to police.

It’s the latest chapter in a high-profile split that has seen Cass publicly blast her ex-husband.

In a recent interview, the mother-of-three revealed: ‘The children still have a father but I don’t have a husband. He really is dead to me and no, we won’t ever be friends again.’


It comes in a week where Karl has found himself in hot water after making a series of explosive claims during a car trip in Sydney.
