In what comes as a shocking development, former Australia captain Michael Clarke has been accused of cheating on his wife, Jade Yarbrough, with her ex, Pip Edwards. Jade confronted the former cricketer in the same regard and also slapped him multiple times in the face. The video of the incident has been doing the rounds on the internet wherein Clarke, his girlfriend, and Today Show host Karl Stefanovic are seen getting involved in an ugly spat.
As reported by The Daily Telegraph, the ugly incident took place on January 10 in Noosa when Clarke and Stefanovic were holidaying with partners Jade and Jasmine Yarbrough. It’s reported that the two couples were at dinner when Clarke was confronted by his girlfriend, Jade, who had reportedly been in contact with the former cricketer’s ex-partner Pip Edwards.
The fight led to a park, where Clarke was seen shirtless and limping as Jade screamed: “You f**ked her on December 17 … You f**ked her, you’re a f**king dog.”
Clarke, meanwhile, can be heard denying the accusations before he is slapped across the face multiple times. The situation continued to escalate with Clarke taking aim at Stefanovic. “Karlos, I can tell you now c**t, don’t you f***ing walk away. She can, she can punch me, but you, you c**t,” Clarke says.
Jade continues to scream at Clarke and hits him again. “You piece of s**t, don’t you f**king speak to him,” she says. After Clarke continues to insist that he did nothing wrong, she says: “Oh am I wrong? You f**ked her (Edwards) on December 17, you f***ed her … you’re a f***ing dog … I’m going to show her every f***ing message you ever f***ing sent me.”
I am the only one at fault: Clarke
The world cup-winning captain then took the responsibility for everything and also apologized to everyone. “I’m absolutely gutted I’ve put people I hold in the highest regard in this position,” he told the Daily Telegraph. “My actions in the lead-up to this altercation were nothing short of shameful and regrettable.
“I am shattered that because of my actions I’ve drawn women of class and integrity, and my mates, into this situation. I own this fully and am the only one at fault.”
