Queensland police have revealed that they will investigate the public argument between Michael Clarke and Jade Yarbrough after it made national headlines on January 19.
In footage obtained by The Daily Telegraph, the former Aussie cricket captain and the homeware designer engaged in a screaming match, showing Jade accusing her boyfriend of cheating with P.E Nation’s Pip Edwards.
Karl Stefanovic — who is married to Jade’s sister Jasmine — was also involved, filmed trying to break up the argument.
“Queensland Police are investigating an incident between a 30-year-old woman and 41-year-old man depicted in footage at Lions Park on Gympie Terrace in Noosaville earlier this month,” QLD police said.
“As this matter on January 10, 2023 is under investigation, the Queensland Police Service is unable to provide any further comment.”
What happened between Michael Clarke and Jade Yarbrough?
According to The Daily Mail, all parties involved did not know they were being filmed by a bystander, who was paid $10,000 for the video.
A source close to the “close-knit” group said that after it was revealed, it was like a “bomb went off” as they realised the gravity of the situation.
On January 19, Michael spoke out about his actions, saying he “accept[s] “full responsibility”.
“I accept full responsibility for this altercation and am shattered by my actions,” the former Australian captain told The Daily Telegraph.
“I’m absolutely gutted I’ve put people I hold in the highest regard in this position. My actions in the lead-up to this altercation were nothing short of shameful and regrettable.”
According to the same publication, the fight broke out when the two “high-profile couples” were dining with a friend, Anthony Bell, in Noosa on January 10.
It is understood that Michael had been in contact with his former partner, Pip, with Jade accusing him of sleeping with her.
