Crashed: Jimmy Bartel was seen at Sydney Airport on Thursday after his divorce with wife Nadia
While the photographer questioned Jimmy about the failure of his marriage to socialite Nadia, the father of two ignored the questions and kept walking.
& # 39; How long have you known Lauren Mand? & # 39; the photographer asked. & # 39; Are there other women involved in this scandal, Jimmy? & # 39;
According to the Herald Sun., British Australian socialite Lauren has long referred to Jimmy as her boyfriend, despite the fact that he is married and has two children.

Lauren would also have wanted their relationship & # 39; to make headlines & # 39 ;.
Nadia, who shares two sons with the former Geelong Cats player, is now reportedly & # 39; bracing & # 39; for more details about her husband's private life to be made public.
It comes after Sharyn Hart, a Melbourne-based TV producer working on The Project, denied being one of many women in a & # 39; close friendship & # 39; with Jimmy after his marriage split.

Sharyn told Daily Mail Australia that she claims she had a relationship with Jimmy & # 39; factually incorrect & # 39; used to be.
When asked if she and Jimmy & # 39; just friends & # 39; Sharyn did not respond.
The friendship of the couple is supposed to have started on Before the Game, an now defunct AFL talk show broadcast on Channel 10.

At the time of the show, Jimmy was still in the middle of his successful AFL career, including three premierships, a Brownlow medal and a Norm Smith medal.
Considered for a long time as one of the glamorous couples in the competition, the end of Bartels' marriage has sparked rumors in recent weeks.
Since his split, Jimmy would have a & # 39; long-term relationship & # 39; with Lauren, who recently moved from Melbourne to London.

The footy legend had flown to London in June for what was apparently a vacation to watch the Wimbledon tennis tournament.
Nadia, 34, seemed to confirm rumors last week about her husband's overseas trip when she broke her silence at the fork.
& # 39; It was a very difficult month for me and the boys, & # 39; Nadia told the Herald Sun.

& # 39; Although I am deeply sad, I do not want to comment specifically on what has been reported about Jim & # 39; s trip to the UK, because I believe that this is not in the interest of anyone.
& # 39; My only focus now is to continue to protect, care and care for my two beautiful boys, as this is a personal matter. & # 39;
According to the couple's friends, the breakup had fallen from the sky and Nadia was & # 39; blind & # 39; toward the end of her marriage.
& # 39; My only focus now is to continue to protect, care and care for my two beautiful boys, as this is a personal matter, & # 39; said Nadia recently
