Karl Stefanovic’s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn takes swipe at Jasmine Yarbrough

Just days before the couple's lavish Mexico wedding.

Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough are set to wed in a lavish ceremony in Mexico later this week and it seems Karl’s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn has taken a dig at the bride-to-be. 

Speaking at an event in Sydney on Tuesday, the journalist claimed she “couldn’t relate” to women whose main priority is to appear stylish. 

[Life] is not a fashion show, it’s not a competition…It is not a competition on going out and dressing up,” the mother-of-three said, The Daily Telegraph has reported.

“I have been judged on my appearance…I don’t agree with it,” she continued.

“How I turn up to pick up my kids from school that day depends on what I have been doing. I might have been cleaning toilets, we all do it,” Cassandra candidly added. 

However, since the Daily Telegraph’s report Cassandra has slammed the publication for making her seem like a “bitter ex-wife.”

The bullying campaign by the media to make me out as a bitter ex-wife is disgraceful,” she told the Daily Mail

Cassandra claims she was instead referring to how women, in particular mothers, shouldn’t worry about their looks while trying to juggle their responsibilities.

“Anyone who knows knows me at all knows I have never believed following fashion is a good thing,” she continued.

“Women should dress in what makes them feel good. It is not a competition. That’s what I said on the panel. They have been my views forever. Individuality and accepting ourselves for who we each are is what we should strive for.” 

Karl and Jasmine are just days away from getting married at the One&Only Palmilla Resort in San Jòse del Cabo on December 8. 

The soon-to-be newlyweds initially began dating in late 2016, months after the Today host separated from his ex-wife Cassandra.
