SAM Burgess might have the break­down of his mar­riage, re­cent AVO con­tro­versy and ca­reerthreat­en­ing in­jury on his mind — but yes­ter­day he just had a bikini-clad girl on his shoul­ders.

While his es­tranged wife re­mained at her par­ents’ Bowral home with the cou­ple’s two young chil­dren, Burgess, 30, jet­ted off to Mex­ico to cel­e­brate for­mer Rab­bitohs player Sean Gar­lick’s 50th birth­day.

Also cel­e­brat­ing the mile­stone birth­day of the mil­lion­aire Garlo’s Pies co­founder were Sam’s brother Luke and Sean’s son,

The Bach­e­lorette con­tes­tant Jack­son Gar­lick.

The trio wore leop­ard-print outfits as they par­tied with scant­ily clad ladies.

In videos posted to so­cial me­dia, Burgess can be seen we wear­ing a tribal style neck­lace and a mini leop­ard print sarong while par­ty­ing.

There was no sign of Burgess’s re­ported shoul­der in­jury as the strap­ping foot­baller hoisted a fe­male guest onto his shoul­ders to danc dance.

The wild party p comes just j one week after it was re­vealed N NSW po­lice h had taken ou out a tem­po­rary ap­pre­hended vi­o­lence or­der aga against the star South Syd­ney foot­baller after an in­ci­dent with his es­tranged wife’s fa­ther-in-law Mitch Hooke in Bowral.

The Sun­day Tele­graph can re­veal Burgess went to his fa­ther-in-law’s home at Glen­quarry on Sat­ur­day Oc­to­ber 19 for his ap­proved two-hour weekly visit with his chil­dren. Ac­cord­ing to doc­u­ments filed at court, when Mr Hooke told him it was time to go, Burgess went face-to-face with him, yelling that it wasn’t “fair”.

The ver­bal al­ter­ca­tion was re­port­edly wit­nessed by Phoebe’s older sis­ter Jemima and prompted her fa­ther to call the po­lice re­sult­ing in Burgess — who re­port­edly de­nied any con­fronta­tion — at­tend­ing Maroubra Po­lice Sta­tion to pick up the AVO the fol­low­ing day.

Mean­while, de­tails of the tem­po­rary AVO stip­u­late Burgess is banned from go­ing within 1km of his fa­ther-in-law’s home and as­sault­ing, stalk­ing, ha­rass­ing or in­tim­i­dat­ing any­one in a do­mes­tic re­la­tion­ship with him.

The Rab­bitohs player boarded a Vir­gin Aus­tralia flight to LA on Thurs­day.

Also on the same flight was Pen­rith Pan­thers coach Ivan Cleary. How­ever, it is not known if that was sim­ply a co­in­ci­dence.

Burgess will re­port­edly at­tend Moss Vale Lo­cal Court on Novem­ber 6 to re­spond to the AVO.
