“Have you taken another lover?” Gladys Berejiklian Shuts Down Question About Her Dating Life On Kyle And Jackie O… After Her Split From Daryl Maguire
New South Wales Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian closed a question about her personal life during an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Friday.
After discussing vaccine hesitation, Victoria’s response to the Covid pandemic and the NSW paramedics strike, radio host Kyle Sandilands couldn’t resist asking Ms Berejiklian if she had recently “taken another lover”.
The 50-year-old politician is said to be single after her split with disgraced former MP Daryl Maguire, who was the subject of a corruption investigation last year.
‘By the way, have you taken another lover yet? What’s happening in that department?’ said Sandilands.
Mrs. Berejiklian roared at the question and said, “Oh, please…”
She then asked Sandilands’ co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, “Is he always like that with all the guests? Or just with me?’
“Can we just turn to affairs of state now?” she added. “We only have a third of the nation living in New South Wales.”
Ms Berejiklian, who has a reputation for ‘being married’, has not dated anyone in public since breaking up with former Wagga Wagga MP Maguire.
Their romantic histories were revealed in October when Gladys admitted during an ICAC investigation that she had had a secret relationship with Maguire while he was in office.
At the time, Maguire was at the center of a corruption investigation amid allegations that he had used his position for personal gain.
While some feared her five-year involvement with the shamed ex-MP would derail her political career, Gladys emerged relatively unscathed from the scandal.
Indeed, many women took pity on her and argued that she should not have been held responsible for her ex-partner’s misdeeds.
