Michael Clarke fight: Cricketing legend slapped by girlfriend over cheating scandal

Karl Stefanovic was noticeably silent about one of Australia’s biggest story hours after a video of a public spat between Michael Clarke and his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough emerged.

A video, filmed by a bystander and obtained by The Daily Telegraph, exposed a dramatic family feud in a Queensland park involving Jade Yarbrough and her boyfriend, Australian cricketing great Michael Clarke, as her sister, Jasmine and her Today show host husband watched on.

The video showed Jade Yarbrough slapping a shirtless Clarke as she accused him of cheating on her with his ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards.

While Stefanovic is not visible in the frame, at one point Clarke can be seen yelling in his direction: “Karlos, I can tell you now c**t, don’t you f**king look away.”

“She can, she can punch me, but you, you c**t.”

“You piece of sh*t, don’t you f**king speak to him,” Ms Yarborough said coming to Stefanovic’s aid.

The 48-year-old remained noticeably quiet on the matter during Thursday morning’s program.

Channel 7’s morning show Sunrise, on the other hand, had the video on rotation throughout their morning broadcast.

“You f**ked her on December 17 … you f**ked her, you’re a f**king dog,” Ms Yarborough screamed at Clarke in the clip.

“Baby you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” Clarke replied.

The four had reportedly been holidaying in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast and had just returned from dinner with friend and celebrity accountant Anthony Bell when the fight broke out.

“Oh yeah, you’re the love of my life Pip, come to India,” Ms Yarborough can be heard yelling, reading aloud snippets from what appears to be a text chain between Clarke and Ms Edwards.

In a statement issued to The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday night, Clarke said he accepted “full” responsibility for the altercation and was “shattered” by his actions.

“I’m absolutely gutted I’ve put people I hold in the highest regard in this position. My actions in the lead-up to this altercation were nothing short of shameful and regrettable,” he said.

“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.”
