Steve Irwin’s “hot cousin” Rebecca Lobie has broken her silence on the highly publicized Irwin family feud that has been making headlines in recent months.
On Sunday, the 33-year-old told Daily Mail Australia she “don’t believe in airing our family business” as she focuses on launching her highly anticipated new subscription website later this week.
“There’s enough pain and emotion for everyone involved that it doesn’t need to be repeated again,” said the mother of two.

Rebecca went on to discuss her new site, which will be similar to the subscription site OnlyFans, but will use her own branding so she has “more control.”
“Having another platform to be able to share my content is something I’ve wanted to do for a while and it’s always been a big request from people,” she said.
“I love creating content and interacting with my fans and this is another way I can do that.”
About her decision to shun OnlyFans, Rebecca added: “It has the same characteristics, if not more. I will be posting exclusive content, chatting with fans and going live.”

Coming soon: Rebecca went on to discuss her upcoming website, which will be similar to subscription site OnlyFans, but will use her own branding so she has “more control”
She added that the price of her monthly subscription fee had not yet been confirmed, but will start this Monday.
While Rebecca is a fan of sharing snappy images on social media, the website itself could just be an extension of this and there’s no hint that she’ll do anything X-rated.
Rebecca – Bindi Irwin’s estranged cousin – often shares bikini-clad photos on Instagram and has amassed more than 115,000 followers since its launch.
Rift: The Irwin family feud went wide last month, after Bindi spoke about her strained relationship with grandfather Bob, 82, (pictured) in a scathing Facebook post
The model is the daughter of Steve Irwin’s sister Joy and her husband Frank Muscillo.
She was previously the general manager of the Irwin family’s Australia Zoo, but left in December 2015.
The Irwin family feud was broken up last month after Bindi spoke about her strained relationship with her grandfather Bob, 82, in a scathing Facebook post.
She sensationally claimed that Bob – who is Steve’s father – “has shown no interest in spending time with me or my family.”
“I really wish my whole family could spend time with Grace. Unfortunately, my grandfather Bob has shown no interest in spending time with me or my family,” said the new mother, 22.
Bindi went on to claim that Bob “returned gifts that I sent after he opened them” and ignored all letters sent from her.
“Since I was a little girl, he’s ignored me, preferring to spend time doing something else than being with me,” she continued.
Claims: When a fan asked why she didn’t include her grandfather Bob, Bindi gave an unusually raw account of their relationship (pictured)
“He never said a kind word to me personally. It breaks my heart.’
She went on to say that her mother Terri Irwin still writes to him and sends birthday cards and Christmas gifts, but claims they have not received a reply.
“We have also been his financial support since 1992 when he returned from Australia Zoo, sending him money every week,” she added.
‘We have built a house for him on a beautiful estate and we will always do our best to ensure his well-being.
‘I hope everyone remembers to be kind to each other, but above all to take care of your own mental health. I’ve struggled with this relationship all my life and it hurts me a lot,” Bindi concluded.
Since the post, Bindi took a short break from social media, but quickly returned weeks later.
