The Bartels, who have long been one of the & # 39; glamor pairs & # 39; of the AFL were silently divorced months ago, but their split was not announced until 15 August.
Meanwhile, Nadia would brace & # 39; & # 39; to reveal more details about her husband's private life in the coming weeks.

Nadia announced her divorce earlier this month and said: & # 39; It was a very difficult month for me and the boys.
& # 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;
In happier times: the Bartels, who have long been one of the & # 39; glamor pairs & # 39; from the AFL were quietly separated months ago, but their split was not announced until 15 August
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.
It comes after the Bartels were pictured with a tense reunion outside the home of Nadia's mother in Middle Park, Melbourne last Thursday.
The WAG looked angry at the meeting and looked angry at her estranged husband as he handed the Henley couple's son to a parking lot.

According to one spectator, the pair had & # 39; hardly any interaction or spoke & # 39; during the transfer and wasted Nadia & # 39; no time & # 39; to get Henley and run back inside.
The reunification of Bartels – the first time they were seen together since they announced their divorce earlier this month – was apparently & # 39; in a minute & # 39 ;.
The mother of two left her shared home with Jimmy in mid-June and drew & # 39; permanently & # 39; at her parents in July.

It is believed that the split had been going on for a long time, with a neighbor who said that the Bartels had rarely been seen together in the past year.
& # 39; Last year we often saw Nadia in cafes nearby with her parents and children, but Jimmy was never with her & # 39 ;, the source claimed.
The split of Bartels was first announced on August 15, just days after fans noticed that the couple no longer followed each other on Instagram.
Jimmy and Nadia married in February 2014 during a lavish ceremony near Melbourne and his parents of sons Aston and Henley.
