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.

Rumours have been circulating for awhile but the Daily Telegraph (lifted from Woman’s Day) are today reporting that judge on The X Factor, Kyle Sandilands, and Dancing With The Stars contestant Tamara Jaber have split. If this is true this will mean Kyle will become one of Sydney’s most eligible bachelors.
The article states:
An urgent meeting of Sandilands’ and Jaber’s management teams was taking place this afternoon to devise a PR strategy to handle their apparent split.
A source said a statement was being prepared and would be released this afternoon.
Previous stories and speculation the couple had split were denied by spokespeople in recent weeks.
However, a story published in Woman’s Day today reported Sandliands had begun telling friends of the split in Sydney last week.
“It’s an open secret,” a friend of the couple reportedly told the magazine.
“They’ve been on the rocks for months.”
Kyle and Tamara appeared together at the radio host’s 39th birthday party at the Piano Room at Kings Cross but left separately.
Sandilands has been reportedly living in city hotels including Blue at Woolloomoloo and Star City casino for the last couple of months while Jaber has been staying at the family home at St Ives.
Also the magazine has photos of both parties not wearing their wedding rings.
Tamara is denying she is on with her dance partner Carmelo Pizzino.
The Woman’s Day article also gives further evidence of their split. It states:
Last week Kyle and Tamara flew to Melbourne separately, arriving within hours of each other. They then checked into different hotels and flew home to Sydney separately.
“They tried to work at the marriage,” says the friend. “Tamara was trying to get back with him as recently as a week or so ago, but Kyle was the one who wasn’t showing a lot of interest.”
Also Tamara recently showed off the couple’s $1.9 million Sydney home on TV’s Better Homes and Gardens. But there was no sign of Kyle, who later admitted the first he knew of the segment was when he saw it advertised on TV.
Last week Tamara addressed their relationship with Woman’s Day. She said
“Our relationship is unusual”.
“We do our own thing and that’s the way it works. People notice things I don’t really notice because we do things the way we want to. We spend a lot of time apart because of work, probably more time than other couples.”
Well we will have to wait and see how true all this is. I suspect Tamara will fade into obscurity once Kyle is no longer on her arm.

In a non-surprising move NRL footy player, and former sex abstainer was the first person eliminated from Dancing With Stars last night.
The combination of having no rhythm and not being known outside NSW did not make it easy for him. But on the plus side he did seem like a nice bloke.
Tamara Jaber again showed she could dance, and The Sunday Telegraph pointed out that fans on the official forums thought her previous dance training was unfair.
The article quotes her Take 40 bio where it state:
“I danced and sung constantly in competitions … and managed to collect 400 trophies,” she says in her biography on the Take 40 website.
“It was my life. I completed all my dancing exams and would compete in competitions all over Australia every week. I’d devote six hours to ballet, three hours to tap and eight hours to jazz … believe it or not, singing was what I did in my spare time.”
Personally I would like to know what her fellow competitors think about her dance training. And Esther Anderson please put on some weight you are gorgeous but far too skinny.

In more publicity for their reality TV shows on Seven, Kyle Sandilands and Tamara Jaber’s St Ives house is on Better Homes and Gardens tonight. I don’t usually watch the show, but if the pictures on the Daily Telegraph website and in the paper are anything to go by I am checking it out.
The shoe closest alone is mind blowing, how does anyone find the time to shop for so many? If you are expecting to see Kyle on the show you will be disappointed it will be Tamara only.
Tamara who is clearly the best dancer on Dancing On The Stars. In an interview with the Daily Tele this week, she said she has never danced professionally. She does have extensive dance training. I would love to know what the other contestants think of that.
On the US version of the show this year, the Pussycat Doll’s singer Nicole Scherzinger won with some rumblings about the fact she was a professional performer. The Pussycat Doll’s do some pretty rigorous dance routines as well as sing.
Maybe if they are going to have people who can dance, which is a good thing, they should make sure there is a few of them to make it competitive.
