Michael Clarke‘s latest relationship controversy has ended in flames after wild footage surfaced of his partner Jade Yarbrough accusing him of cheating with his ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards.
The former Australian cricket captain’s lusty antics have been the talk of Sydney‘s eastern suburbs social scene for some time.
From an on-and-off lover to a New Year’s Eve fling, Clarke has weaved a tangled web of romances.
Clarke, 41, started dating P.E. Nation activewear designer Pip, 42, in June 2020 after his split from wife Kyly Clarke, which they had announced four months earlier.

Clarke and Edwards denied they were dating for several weeks, but it became apparent by June 2020 that they were an item.
The pair had been friends for more than a decade before romance blossomed, but reportedly grew close while working on a fashion project together.
The couple split in February 2021, less than a year into their high-profile relationship.

Sources close to the pair said while they had gone their separate ways, they remained good friends and the split was ‘amicable’.
The pair sparked reconciliation rumours less than two months later when they spent a sun-soaked day on the water together after dining at a lavish restaurant.
However things turned ugly not long after when they conspicuously unfollowed each other on Instagram.
In September 2021, just seven months after their split, rumours began circling that Pip and Michael were back together

It was around this time that Edwards begun a short-lived fling with Bondi restaurateur Cameron Northway.
The pair dated for about four months before things fizzled out.

Two days later, the couple uploaded very similar Instagram photos of themselves relaxing next to Clarke’s backyard pool – clear sign things were back on.
The pair were also following each other on Instagram again after previously deleting each other’s account in the wake of their February break-up.
Sadly, Clarke and Edwards split again for good in December 2021.

A source close to the pair confirmed the break-up, saying: ‘The decision was mutual. They’re two best friends who decided to part ways as a couple earlier this month, but continue their friendship.’
The couple would cross paths on several occasions over the next year.
In February 2022, they were pictured at Darren McMullen’s 40th birthday party in Rose Bay, Sydney.
In a twist, Clarke’s soon-to-be girlfriend Jade Yabrough, 30, also attended the outdoor soiree, and was even spotted rubbing shoulders with Edwards.

In contrast, Clarke and Edwards kept their distance.
‘They were actively avoiding each other,’ an attendee said.
‘There’s nothing to report.’
They also crossed paths at the New Year’s Day bash at Sydney’s iconic Icebergs on January 1, 2023.
The exes were pictured partying with their own friends and leaving separately.
Just weeks after splitting from Edwards in December 2021, Clarke reportedly hooked up with eastern suburbs eyebrow queen Kristin Fisher, 36, at a New Year’s Eve bash.

Fisher and Clarke are said to have got together on December 31, 2021, at a party in Vaucluse hosted by their mutual friends Dina Broadhurst and Max Shepherd.
At the time, it was reported that Edwards ‘wasn’t happy’ about what happened.
Edwards had been good mates with Broadhurst prior to her hosting the infamous New Year’s Eve bash – however, both unfollowed each other on Instagram following the incident.

Broadhurst and mother-of-two Fisher appeared to be the best friends while at the party, posing for happy snaps to show off their matching black outfits on Instagram, with Kristin commenting: ‘Twinny! Love you’.
They also cosied up for a bikini selfie at the beach on January 1, 2022.
While neither Fisher or Edwards publicly commented on the rumours both shared plenty of thirst-trap selfies on Instagram in the weeks after the New Year’s bash.
The photos were perhaps in a thinly veiled bid to grab Clarke’s attention.

Clarke flexed his biceps and six-pack for the thirsty shot, which he simply captioned ‘Sunday’ alongside a sweat emoji.
Following the New Year’s Eve party, Clarke remained single for some time before sparking up a romance with Jasmine Yarbrough’s little sister, Jade.
Rumours began swirling that Clarke and Jade Yarbrough were dating in July 2022 when they were spotted checking in at Sydney Airport for a business class flight.
The couple went Instagram official a few weeks later when Yarbrough shared a photo of Clarke wrapping his arms around her shoulder as they explored the streets of Italy during a European vacation.
Yarbrough, an interior designer and socialite, looked stylish in a see-through fishnet dress and an orange Bottega Veneta handbag, while Clarke wore shorts and a black T-shirt.

The couple are said to have met through Yarbrough’s brother-in-law Karl Stefanovic.
Clarke was also close friends with her business partner’s husband, Travy Bacon.
Coincidentally, Jade’s shoe designer sister Jasmine was previously good friends with Clarke’s ex-fiancée Lara Bingle.

It was reported at the time that Clarke had become ‘quite fond’ of Yarbrough in recent weeks.
On August 21, little more than a month into their relationship, Yarbrough was pictured meeting Clarke’s daughter for the first time.

Clarke finally discussed his relationship with Yarbrough in an interview with Stellar Magazine in September, 2022.
He was coy when asked about their time away on holiday together in Europe, saying: ‘I had two-and-a-half weeks away with some of my best friends [and] had such a great time. But I missed my little girl [Kelsey Lee].
‘I understand and respect that people are going to ask. I’ve never really cared too much about other people’s personal lives, but I understand if there’s interest.’

The couple’s romance quickly blossomed, and they were spotted enjoying a weekend away in Noosa in November with celebrity accountant Anthony Bell, Pip Edwards’ former friend Dina Broadhurst and her partner Max Shepherd.
The couple also enjoyed plenty of double dates with Jasmine and her husband Karl Stefanovic.
Sadly, things fell apart on January 10 while the sisters were holidaying together with their respective partners on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
Dramatic footage obtained by The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday showed a shirtless Clarke being slapped by his angry girlfriend during an outdoor scuffle, while her sister and Stefanovic attempted to stop the fracas.
All hell broke loose while the group was having dinner at a beachside restaurant in Noosa with Bell.

It’s understood the melee was over recent text messages between Clarke and Edwards.
Edwards has since distanced herself from the ‘debacle’ as she issued a brutal swipe at Clarke.
‘This is not my circus. Yet again, Michael in his true nature has not taken responsibility for his actions and I was blatantly lied to,’ she said in a statement.
Edwards’ former best pal Jaz Daly was spotted enjoying a night out with Clarke and friends in Vaucluse in June 2021.
To make matters worse, another former close mate Dina Broadhurst also attended the outing.
While Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting there was anything romantic going on between Clarke and Daly, their friendship might have hit a sore spot for Edwards.

Edwards and Daly seemingly confirmed their fallout at the time by unfollowing each other on Instagram.
The former besties had previously taken dozens of photos together and had been spotted at numerous events.
The pair have since made amends, and have begun following each other on Instagram.
They were most recently spotted together heading to a wild party on December 17 2022 – the same evening Clarke allegedly ‘cheated’ on Yarbrough with Edwards.

The batsman was married to former model Kyly Clarke (née Boldy), 40, from 2012 to 2019.
The couple went to school together at Sydney’s Westfields Sports High, but weren’t friends until after graduating.
In 2015 they welcomed their only child, Kelsey Lee.

The Clarkes had kept their separation quiet for several months before Kyly put out a statement on Instagram saying their priority was their daughter.
The pair said the ‘amicable’ decision to separate was ‘the best course’ for their daughter.
Michael recently praised his ex-wife as a ‘beautiful mother’, revealing the pair still have an ‘amazing friendship’ and are focused on raising Kelsey Lee.

Before dating Kyly, Clarke was engaged to former Bondi socialite Lara Bingle.
The pair began dating in 2007 after meeting on the set of Dancing on Ice, before getting engaged the following year in New York.

Clarke was so besotted by the model that he had her initials tattooed to his shoulder inside the image of an angel.
In March 2010, Clarke famously left his teammates midway through a New Zealand tour to return to Australia for ‘personal reasons.’ He announced two days later he had split with Bingle.
Their break-up came just months after a photo of Bingle in the shower taken by one-time lover, AFL star Brendan Fevola was leaked and went viral.
There were then highly-publicised rumours Bingle flushed her $200,000 engagement ring down the toilet at their Bondi beachside pad.
Clarke finally addressed the rumours six years later in a tell-all interview with 60 Minutes, describing them as ‘complete made-up 100 per cent bulls**t!’
‘I’d like to say I’m a very silly man. But I’m not that silly. I’m not throwing any diamond ring down a toilet,’ he said in 2016.
