Jimmy Bartel breaks his silence on shock split from wife Nadia
After a new report claims the AFL great has moved on.
Now the AFL star told 3AW's pre-game coverage that the situation is “not great”.
'I am probably not going to provide any commentary on it.’
'I know I am in the public eye and people are interested, but it is a private matter and I ask for a bit of respect because obviously Nadia and the boys [are] involved.'
The 35-year-old Geelong Cats great has been since been linked to Instagram model and Melbourne socialite Lauren Mand.
The Herald Sun reports the pair met recently, with Nadia “indignant” over the new coupling.
“They’re not talking,” a friend told the publication. “It’s definitely over. She (Nadia) is completely blindsided.”
Nadia and Jimmy share two sons, Aston, 4, and Henley, 1.
