Karl’s pain Jas­mine’s younger man

The To­day co-host is left reel­ing as girl­friend Jas­mine st steps out with a yo younger man in LA

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

Karl Stefanovic was on top of the world last month af­ter his ro­man­tic dis­play with younger gi girl­friend Jas­mine Yar­brough hit he head­lines around the coun­try. The loved-up cou­ple’s very pu pub­lic dec­la­ra­tion of af­fec­tion ca came as the 33-year-old model an and shoe de­signer picked up the 42 42-year old fa­ther of three from LA Air­port in her sil­ver SUV. Re­ports fol­lowed soon af­ter th that Karl had dis­cussed the idea o of mar­riage with Jas­mine’s fa fa­ther dur­ing his time in the US. But it was a very dif­fer­ent s scene at the same air­port last w week. In­stead, it was an­other m man ac­com­pa­ny­ing Jas­mine as she made the jour­ney to LAX to board a flight bound for Sydney. Not only that, but Woman’s Day can ex­clu­sively re­veal the pair spent time alone to­gether at Jas­mine’s Hol­ly­wood home.

Jas­mine and Jack Bed­wani, the CEO of in­ter­na­tional brand con­sul­tancy firm The Projects, were spot­ted look­ing happy and care­free on mul­ti­ple oc­ca­sions in the week be­fore she left to re­turn to Karl’s side in Aus­tralia.

In ad­di­tion to 35-year-old Jack ac­com­pa­ny­ing Jas­mine to the air­port last Mon­day night, he was also spot­ted leav­ing her house in the early hours of the morn­ing just days be­fore. The duo are ap­par­ently so close that Jas­mine lent him her car – the same one she and Karl were fa­mously pic­tured em­brac­ing in last month. He used it to run some per­sonal er­rands af­ter leav­ing her home, but then Jas­mine and Jack have a long his­tory. With mu­tual friends in the US and Aus­tralia, and a love of fash­ion, they of­ten post pic­tures look­ing cosy on In­sta­gram. The cool young bach­e­lor’s flir­ta­tion with Jas­mine must be driv­ing Karl wild with envy.

These lat­est out­ings and pri­vate hang-outs at Jas­mine’s place will no doubt come as a crush­ing blow to “daggy dad” Karl’s ego, given he’s said to be so head over heels in love he’s on an all-out cam­paign to win over her par­ents.

“Karl was des­per­ate to prove to her fam­ily that he’s re­ally se­ri­ous about her,” a source close to the cou­ple re­vealed to

Woman’s Day just weeks ago. “He made a point of tak­ing her dad to one side and telling him he’s gen­uinely in love and this is in no way a re­bound or a fling.”

Still, for many scep­tics of the ro­mance – which came soon af­ter Karl’s sud­den split from his wife of 21 years, Cas­san­dra Thor­burn – this hu­mil­i­at­ing twist may come as a form of just desserts.

Sydney ra­dio star Jackie O went on the record last week to ex­plain why she thinks women are an­gry with Karl in the wake of his split. “Do you re­ally need an ex­pla­na­tion for that?” she asked co-host Kyle Sandi­lands on their KIIS FM morn­ing show. “They see a mother who stood by him for all those years… This is what a lot of women would think: This is a lovely lady that stood by him for years, they have a fam­ily and they see him leave her.

“Again, this is what they think: He’s just left her for some young 20-year-old and he’s ca­vort­ing around, kiss­ing her, cud­dling her, for ev­ery­one to see. What do his chil­dren think? This is what women think. They also be­lieve ‘that could hap­pen to me’. ”
