It comes after Lisa addressed Karl’s split from his ex-wife Cassandra in her new book.

In an excerpt from the autobiography, the 61-year-old admitted she was ‘shocked’ when Thorburn – a former producer on the Today show – sent her a text message informing her Stefanovic had moved out of the family home in 2016.

‘They had just bought a waterfront property a month or two before and he had just signed a massive deal with the network. I presumed everything was great,’ Wilkinson wrote.

Wilkinson said she ‘gasped’ when she received the text from Thorburn telling her the couple had separated after 21 years of marriage.

‘Cass wanted to let me know that Karl had moved out a few weeks before,’ she wrote.

‘She was worried he hadn’t yet told me and didn’t want me mentioning anything on air about them that might make things uncomfortable.’

Stefanovic and Thorburn, who share three children, Jackson, 20, Ava, 15, and River, 13, separated in 2016 and divorced a year later.

The former journalist is rumoured to have walked away with about $6million in assets and cash.
