Karl Stefanovic may have been dragged into the headlines this week thanks to former Today show co-host Lisa Wilkinson’s new memoir leaving nothing off the table. 

But the 47-year-old is gearing up to welcome back his wife Jasmine Yarbrough and daughter Harper back home, after they spent weeks in Queensland as the shoe designer mourned the death of her late grandmother. 

Brushing off Lisa’s claims, Karl shared his excitement at his girls coming home on Monday, underneath a sweet picture that Jasmine, 37, shared on Instagram on earlier this week.

Karl and Jasmine have spent weeks apart, after she obtained a special exemption from Queensland Health to travel from Sydney to Brisbane with her daughter in August.

Karl revealed on the Today show at the time that Jasmine’s 96-year-old grandmother was ‘really, really, really sick’.

Jasmine was fortunately able to spend time with her grandmother before she died.

She subsequently attended the funeral with her family in Brisbane. 

It comes after Karl’s former co-host Lisa Wilkinson lifted the lid on her final days working at the Today show in an excerpt from her new book, It Wasn’t Meant to Be Like This, published in The Sunday Telegraph.

She claimed Karl had given her the cold shoulder in the weeks prior to her sacking, which was prompted when she asked for a significant pay rise.

She alleged she and husband Peter FitzSimons had invited Karl and Jasmine to attend their 25th anniversary vow renewal ceremony in October 2017, but Karl was a no-show.  

Two days before the event, however, Karl supposedly contacted Peter to say they wouldn’t be attending because they’d extended their overseas holiday.

‘In the ten days since [the ceremony] Karl hadn’t contacted me, his co-host of almost eleven years, at all. No phone message, no text, no apology, not even a simple congrats. Just complete silence,’ Lisa alleged. 

Lisa claims in her new autobiography that Karl’s no-show was the final straw for their troubled relationship – even going so far as to imply he refused the invitation because he knew she was about to get sacked from Channel Nine.

But this narrative has been disputed by guests who attended the ceremony, many of whom told The Australian they didn’t know it was a wedding until they arrived.
