Karl Stefanovic admits he’s ‘glad those years of headlines are behind him’ after his much-discussed marriage and departure from Today

Karl Stefanovic has spoken out about being in the limelight during his much-discussed divorce from his first wife Cassandra Thorburn and departure from Today in 2016.

The TV host, 47, told TV tonight on Friday he experiences ‘those years’ behind him.

“I think if you’re in the spotlight and you’re a public person, things will be written. It just amazes me that there was so much, but it is what it is,” said Karl.

At the time, Karl was also criticized for traveling to Bora Bora on vacation without saying goodbye to his Today audience.

‘I had organized that months before. In the heat of whatever’s going on, it’s going to be something big if it wasn’t. I always left at that moment,’ he said.

“Mate, I’m glad those years are behind me.”

In the two years prior to Karl's marriage to Jasmine Yarbrough (pictured), Karl had tarnished his public image through his divorce from his first wife Cassandra Thorburn, his subsequent relationship with Jasmine and his perceived negative attitude towards his colleagues.
