Karl Stefanovic Speaks Out About Paparazzi Pressure

Karl Stefanovic has spoken out about his struggles with the paparazzi after his high-profile split from wife Cassandra Thorburn. The 42-year-old has been the topic of tabloid fodder for the last three months and says it's taking a toll on his health.

Speaking to the Private Sydney, the journalist spoke for the first time about all the unwanted attention he and rumoured new girlfriend, model and designer Jasmine Yarbrough are receiving.  

“Having 20 paps on your ass [sic] for three months is not good for your health. Or anyone you are associated with. They are dangerous on the roads as well. Goes with the territory I know but it makes living hard,” he said.

Since news broke of the Today Show host's split from his wife of over 20 years, Karl has been linked to a number of women. His rumoured romance with Yarbrough first hit the headlines late last year, when Karl was spotted lying on the deck of a luxury yacht alongside the model.

Karl recently spoke out to the Herald Sun about the emotional toll all the attention has had on his young family. 

“For me personally I would definitely have failures in a husband sense and hope that I can rectify my failures as a dad,” Karl told the publication.

“I hope I can try and rebuild whatever has happened in the past and try and make the most of what I can do with them in the future.”
