Karl’s ex spills on ‘challenging’ divorce
CASSANDRA Thorburn has opened up about the struggles of co-parenting three kids with ex-husband Karl Stefanovic.
The ex-Today host split with his wife of 21 years in late 2016, sparking a bitter and public divorce.
The former couple have three children together - Jackson, 20, Ava, 14, and River, 12.
Speaking on this week's The Juggling Act podcast, Thorburn admitted that sharing them with her ex-husband was a "massive challenge".
"Co-parenting I think is a massive challenge. Even if there's an amicable agreement between the parties, it still becomes hard," she told co-hosts Sarah Harris and Melissa Wilson.
"You're leading separate lives, you're no longer in a co-environment. So co-parenting … that's a big word."
However, Thorburn also explained that working through it was possible.
"There obviously is a way to navigate it," she said. "I don't think there's a textbook of instructions in point form (where) you can guarantee you're going to get that end result."
Months after splitting from Thorburn, Stefanovic met shoe designer Jasmine Yarbrough at a yacht party in Sydney and sparked up a relationship.
The couple went on to marry in a lavish ceremony in Mexico last December.
