Michael Clarke reveals the TRUTH about his ‘reunion’ with ex-wife Kyly: Cricketer sets record straight after former couple were spotted on ‘romantic’ getaway in Palm Beach

Michael Clarke has downplayed rumors that he’s reunited with ex-wife Kyly, saying the pair are just friendly co-parents and not a couple.

The former Australian cricket captain, 40, stopped speculation during an interview The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Friday.

He said the exes’ apparently romantic getaway last weekend in Palm Beach was really just a family outing, and his sister and brother-in-law were also in attendance.

“Kyly and I have said it from day one, we have such a wonderful friendship, and the fact that we can do that for our daughter, I don’t think there is an ex-husband and wife who are not together that don’t do that for their kid,’ said Michael.

He added: “Kyly is such a natural parent. She’s a great mother. For me I’m learning [fatherhood] when I go; I have 50 percent custody of my daughter so I love seeing her [and] Kyly and I talk almost every day because I ask her for advice.’

The Sky Sports Radio presenter went on to say that he and Kyly, 39, “unfortunately” did not have sex during their trip to Palm Beach, while laughing down the reconciliation rumours.

Interestingly enough, KIIS FM presenter Kyle Sandilands hinted that he didn’t believe Michael’s denial, telling listeners after the interview, “We know what’s going on… We know…”

Michael’s comments come after his ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards seemingly confirmed the Clarkes were back together on Wednesday.

Pip, who dated the retired sportsman for about seven months while the Clarkes were apart, spoke briefly about the couple’s weekend getaway at Australian Fashion Week.

When the conversation turned to Michael and Pip, the 41-year-old PE Nation founder smiled and said, “I wish them the best” before rushing out the door with her entourage.

Michael and Kyly split in September 2019 after seven years of marriage, but did not announce their breakup until February 12, 2020.

In a statement at the time, the Clarkes said the “amicable” decision to break up was “the best choice” for their five-year-old daughter, Kelsey Lee.

Shortly after the end of his marriage, 40-year-old Michael began dating Pip, whom he had been friends with for over a decade.

Meanwhile, Kyly was enjoying an affair with V8 Supercars champion James Courtney.

However, these relationships didn’t last: Michael and Pip broke up in February after dating for about seven months, while Kyly and James broke up in December.
