How Pip Edwards and Michael Clarke got back together and started a cheating scandal

Pip Edwards and Michael Clarke attended an exclusive New Year’s party at Bondi’s famous Icebergs in Sydney – just days after the cricketer was accused of cheating on his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough with the fashion designer.

Extraordinary footage emerged on Wednesday night of the former Australia cricket captain and Karl Stefanovic engaged in a heated exchange the night before shocked spectators at a public park about the incident.

The Today show host and the Australian cricketer clashed while holidaying with their respective partners, sisters Jasmine and Jade Yarbrough, on January 10 on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

All hell broke loose when the couples had dinner with fellow famous accountant Anthony Bell at a beachfront restaurant in Noosa.

The melee is understood to have been about Clarke’s ex-girlfriend Pip and recent text messages between the two.

Clarke and Edwards, who officially split in December 2021, were spotted at the same New Year’s celebration at Icebergs in Bondi Beach just days before.

The former Flames partied with friends at the iconic event, including businessman John Ibrahim, designer Henry Holland and restaurateur Maurice Terzini.

Pip shared a series of photos on Instagram on the day in a green mini dress.

Elsewhere, Clarke was spotted in a black t-shirt and designer sunglasses as he posed alongside revelers.

At the time, rumors were swirling that Clarke and Jade had split, with the socialite canceling her appearance at the party to instead vacation in Aspen with her sister Jasmine and brother-in-law, Today Show host Karl.

Sources claimed Pip and Clarke didn’t speak to each other at the New Year’s party and kept their distance.

But just 10 days later, a wild fight broke out between Clarke and girlfriend Jade and Stefanovic in front of shocked onlookers.

The Daily Telegraph’s dramatic footage shows a shirtless Clarke being yelled at and slapped by his hysterical girlfriend Jade while others in the group try to defuse the commotion.

During the angry exchange, Jade accused Clarke of sleeping with his ex-girlfriend Pip on December 17 and telling her she was the “love of his life”.

The video begins with Jade yelling at Clarke before slapping him in the face and pushing him away after the cricket legend claimed he didn’t cheat on her.

‘Am I wrong? I’m damn wrong! You are a fucking liar. i can see everything You called her,” Jade yells, apparently referring to messages between Clark and Pip.

Clarke then attempted to reassure Jade that he had not slept with Pip on December 17, claiming he had been with his pal Bell that night.

“Baby, you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” Clarke insists. ‘Baby, baby, Belly was in the house. I swear on my life, I swear on my life… That’s not true, that’s not true.’

He then swore on his daughter Kelsey’s life that he hadn’t cheated on her. “I swear on my daughter’s life, on my daughter’s life,” Clarke says.

But Jade doesn’t believe his desperate protests and claims she spoke to Pip.

‘You’re fucking lying to me. You are a piece of shit. I just spoke to her. What’s wrong with you?’

Clarke again denied sleeping with Pip, replying: “No, I didn’t. you can hit me That’s not true, that’s not true.’

Clarke appeared to have injured his hamstring in the melee after being knocked to the ground by Jade when he was seen limping through the public park.

Stefanovic’s wife Jasmine eventually intervenes, grabbing her distraught sister’s arm and pulling Jade away. You can hear Jasmin say: “Go away with Karl, go away with Karl.”

As she is led away, Jade can be heard crying as she turns to Clarke and says, “I fucking hate you.”

Clarke then tries to follow Jade before unleashing a wave of anger at Stefanovic, presumably for walking away with the two sisters.

“Karlos, I can tell you now, shit, don’t go the fuck away. She can, she can hit me, but you, you shit,” says Clarke.

The comment sparks anger in Jade, who defends her brother-in-law before repeatedly punching Clarke in the face.

“You piece of shit, don’t fucking talk to him,” she yelled.

Stefanovic and fellow celebrity accountant Anthony Bell tell the couple to stop, which falls on deaf ears.

“Go hit me, hit me… do it again, you’re wrong, you’re bloody wrong,” Clarke tells his girlfriend.

Jade yells, “Oh, am I wrong? You fucked her (Pip) December 17th, you fucked her…you’re a fucking dog…I’ll show her every fucking message you ever fucking sent me.’

She is referring to a text she saw on Clarke’s phone inviting Pip to come to India with him.

“Oh yes you are the love of my life Pip come to India” Jade said.

Clarke replied, “Don’t ever talk to me again.”

The two-minute clip ends with her sister Jasmine and Bell breaking up the feuding couple.

“Stop it, Jade, stop it,” Jasmine pleads. Bell adds, “Let it go, Jade.”

The ugly altercation happened in front of young children nearby, according to stunned witnesses.

A remorseful Clarke has taken full responsibility for what happened.

“I am absolutely disappointed that I have brought into this position people I value most in this position. My actions leading up to this altercation were nothing short of shameful and regrettable,” he told the publication Wednesday night.

“I’m devastated that my actions have drawn women of class and integrity and my buddies into this situation.”

His former partner Pip distanced herself from the “debacle” as she delivered a brutal punch to Clarke.

“It’s not my circus. Once again, Michael in his true nature took no responsibility for his actions and I was blatantly lied to,” Pip said in a statement.

Chron Australia has reached out to everyone involved for comment.

The altercation came just a day after Clarke and Jade silenced recent breakup rumors as they packed their PDA while on holiday on Noosa’s main beach.

Clarke’s relationship with his former partner Pip began in June 2020 after he split from his wife Kyly, whom they announced four months earlier.

He and Pip had been friends for more than a decade before that, but became closer when they worked on a fashion project together.

The couple called it quits in December 2021.

A source close to the couple confirmed the split, saying: “The decision was mutual. They are two best friends who decided to break up as a couple earlier this month but to continue their friendship.

After their split, Pip had an affair with Bondi restaurateur Cameron Northway for around four months, but that fizzled out and she reunited with Michael.

The hitter was married to former model Kyly Clarke (née Boldy), 40, from 2012 to 2019, but the couple didn’t announce their split until February 2020.

The Clarkes had kept their split a secret for several months before releasing a statement on Instagram saying their daughter was their priority.

In a statement at the time, the couple said the “amicable” decision to separate was “the best way forward” for their daughter.
