The Voice – Luke Kennedy’s Back Story Is Unravelling
Runner up on The Voice Australia Luke Kennedy gained much sympathy because of his struggle of depression, however it appears he might not be quite the nice guy he was made out to be.
Luke’s back story was about suffering from depression and he spoke about his separation from his wife and his two year old daughter.
Early in the series I mused that it would be interesting to get his wife’s side of the story and it appears we now have it albeit through a close source. There is indeed two sides to every story.
The Daily Telegraph (via the Courier Mail) revealed he had an affair whilst his wife was pregnant.
The article says:
The source told The Sunday Mail Kennedy began an affair with his wife’s married friend, Naomi Price, a Brisbane-based performer, before Rebecca gave birth.
Kennedy moved out when the baby was just a few weeks old, the source claimed.
“Rebecca was devastated to find out Luke had been sleeping with her friend, but she agreed to stick it out because they are both Catholic,” said the source.
Also it would appear the depression was whether he should stay with his wife or be with his lover.
“After Olivia was born, she said having Luke at home was like looking after two babies because he was always curled up on the couch, going through an inner turmoil about what he should do.
“She told him if he didn’t want to be there then he should go. He looked at her and said he was leaving to be with (Price).”
Kennedy and Price are still in a relationship.

Also previously I have written about how back stories are massaged most recently was The X Factor finalist’s Samantha Jade and Jason Owen’s which appear to have been edited to convey a different impression then the reality was. Expect this not to be the first or last of these back stories to fall over once they are fully scrutinised.
