It’s Official Kyle and Tamara Have Split

Last night Kyle Sandiland’s and Tamara Jaber put out an official announcement to say the are indeed separated.

The Daily Telegraph says:

Kyle Sandilands and Tamara Jaber wish to acknowledge that the past few months have been challenging due to their individual work demands which have required extended periods of time apart,” a statement released from Sandilands’ management King Kyle Group said last night.

The also say that the divorce may not be all that lucrative for Tamara.

Most of the couple’s major assets are in Sandilands’ companies and divorce experts said she would not receive anything like a 50/50 split.

And despite his huge earnings – which include $4 million a year from major employer 2DayFM and an estimated $1 million a year from the Seven Network – records show many of Sandilands’ major assets have large levels of debt registered against them.

Family law expert Glenda Laurence of Argyle Lawyers said the courts would likely allow Sandilands to keep most of the assets he had not given to Jaber: particularly as there were no kids. “She’s probably not going to get an awful lot, given that it’s a short relationship,” she said.

But Sandilands showered plenty on his soon-to-be ex-wife, including an estimated $100,000-plus platinum and diamond engagement ring.

Estimates also put his spending on Jaber’s career at more than $500,000, including upwards of $300,000 to record her latest album.

It will be interesting to see if this effects Tamara’s performance on Dancing With The Stars as at this stage she must be favourite to win. Tamara denies being involved with her Dancing With The Stars partner.

Andrew Hornery of the SMH did mention on Twitter that he thought the timing of their separation was interesting considering it was the week that his radio partner Jackie O announced her pregnancy.

Did anyone else see her performance on Better Homes And Gardens? A more gaudy show of wealth I never seen. Bragging about sending over drivers to pick up friends and their two TVs in front of their enormous custom made leather couch. Making sure she’s wearing Chanel clearly marked so all could see how much she’s worth. Made me want to throw up. This split, apparently based on her spending, doesn’t surprise me at all.

Maybe Tamara can shack up with Fadi Ibrahim? He’d keep in the gangsta style she’s accustomed to.

I saw the ep Smauge. What’s with meeting up with ex-idol Reigan Derry who was living on the street or some crap, and getting her to move into their house and make a single together and live happily ever after! And yes the 2 TV’s were a joke….

by “meeting up with” I presume you mean “sent a car around for”

Indeed Smauge!

smauge – I missed Better Homes and Gardens due to a recording clash. I hope for both their sakes they have not blown all their cash.

Izobel2 – I cannot understand how you can actually watch two tv’s at once.

CB – Well there is an opening for little while with Fadi, since his fiance is locked up.

I wonder if his BFF Brian McFadden will break up with his missus now so they can be single together?
