Kyle Sandilands speaks out about Jackie O marriage split


Kyle Sandilands has revealed his shock over Jackie ‘O’ Henderson’s separation from her husband Lee after 15 years of marriage.  

Her KIIS FM co-host told The Daily Mail Australia the pair were ‘the perfect couple’.

‘I don’t know a lot about it,’ he added ‘I just want to be there for my friend. I was really sad when I heard about it.’


The 47-year-old also said that Jackie has assured him that her and Lee are in a ‘better place’ after the split.

‘You’re sad for your friends but she assures me that they’re both in a better place now, and they’re both better friends then they were together.’

‘I just wanted her to know I am there for her as a friend, I have known her for 20 years for god’s sake. I hope she is happy, I hope the whole family is happy.’


Kyle also said their main focus is their 7-year-old daughter, Kitty.

‘Obviously Lee and I have decided to separate, which you know already Kyle,’ Henderson said on Friday’s show.

‘It’s not a decision we took lightly. I think Lee and I have been so lucky that our separation has been extremely amicable.’


Jackie went onto explain that she has remained ‘really good friends’ with Lee throughout their split, talking on the phone everyday and hanging out as a family.

Although the announcement of their split came as a shock to fans, it is something that has been a long time coming.

‘It’s not something that happened overnight for us,’ she said. ‘It’s been a long time. We’ve been separated for a long time. We’re just lucky that we were able to do it in private.’
