A mortified Jade Yarbrough is holed up with her sister Jasmine Stefanovic after her angry argument with boyfriend Michael Clarke made headlines.
The 30-year-old interior designer is staying at Jasmine’s house, where she has spent the past two days on the phone with a “desperate” Clarke, who is begging her to take him back after he allegedly cheated on her with his ex Pip Edwards last month.
Yarbrough has not been seen since footage of the ugly Stoush was leaked to the press on Wednesday, but friends say she is “disturbed and embarrassed” by the video.

Queensland Police said overnight they were investigating the riot that took place at a public park in Noosa on January 10. No charges were brought.
“Queensland Police are investigating an incident between a 30-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man pictured at Lions Park on Gympie Terrace in Noosaville earlier this month,” a police spokesman said.
“As this matter is under investigation on January 10, 2023, the Queensland Police Service is unable to comment further.”
Clarke reportedly “spent Wednesday and Thursday calling Yarbrough and asking for forgiveness,” reports The Daily Telegraph.
Extraordinary footage of the couple’s heated exchange while on holiday in Noosa emerged on Wednesday, with Yarbrough accusing Clarke, 41, of sleeping with his Edwards behind her back on December 17.
Clarke and Edwards were on and off from June 2020 to December 2021. The former Australia cricket captain started dating Yarbrough last year.
Yarbrough hasn’t been seen since footage (above) of the ugly Stoush leaked to the press on Wednesday, but friends said she was “distraught and embarrassed” by the video
The video, which was filmed by a viewer and was purchased by The Daily Telegraph for an alleged $10,000, featured other members of the group including Today presenter Karl Stefanovic, his wife Jasmine – Jade’s older sister – and celebrity accountant Anthony Bell , who tried to defuse the commotion.
Yarbrough has accused Clarke of sleeping with Edwards on December 17 and telling her she was the “love of his life”.
The video begins with Yarbrough yelling at Clarke before slapping him in the face and pushing him away after the cricketer insists he hasn’t cheated on her.
‘Am I wrong? I’m damn wrong! You are a fucking liar. i can see everything You called her,” she yells, apparently referring to messages between Clarke and Edwards.
Clarke then tries to reassure Yarbrough that he didn’t leak with Edwards on December 17, saying he was with 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 the life of his daughter Kelsey Lee that he hadn’t cheated on her – but Yarbrough refuses to believe his desperate protests, claiming she spoke to Edwards.

“You’re damn king to lie to me. You are a piece of shit. I just spoke to her. What’s wrong with you?’ She says.
Clarke again denies sleeping with Edwards and replies, “No, I didn’t. you can hit me That’s not true, that’s not true.’
He appeared to have injured his hamstring in the melee after being knocked to the ground by Yarbrough when he was seen limping through the public park.
Stefanovic’s wife Jasmine finally intervenes, grabs her desperate sister’s arm and drags her away.
You can hear Jasmin say: “Go away with Karl, go away with Karl.”
As she is led away, Jade is heard crying as she turns to Clarke and howls, “I f**king hate you.”

Clarke then attempts to follow Jade before unleashing a wave of anger at Stefanovic, seemingly for walking away with the two sisters.
“Karlos, I can tell you now, c**t, don’t the fuck go away. She can, she can hit me, but you, you shit,” says Clarke.
This 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 yells.
Stefanovic and 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.
Clarke has taken responsibility for the drama and said he was “absolutely disappointed”.
Yarbrough yells, “Oh, am I wrong? You fucked her on December 17th, you fucked her…you’re a fucking dog…I’ll show her every fucking message you’ve ever fucking sent me.
She is referring to a text she claims to have seen on Clarke’s phone, inviting Edwards to come to India with him.
“Oh yeah, ‘You’re the love of my life, Pip, come to India,'” Yarbrough says, to which Clark replies, “Don’t ever talk to me again.”
The two-minute clip ends with 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 since accepted 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 Daily Telegraph on Wednesday.
“I’m devastated that my actions have drawn women of class and integrity and my buddies into this situation.”
Chron Australia has reached out to all other stakeholders for comment.
Meanwhile, Edwards had none of the drama as she returned to her home in the eastern suburbs late Wednesday night after attending Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road concert at Allianz Stadium in Moore Park.
“It’s not my circus. Once again, Michael in his true nature has taken no responsibility for his actions and I have been openly lied to,” she said in a statement to Chron Australia.

It has since been revealed that Clarke hopes to win Yarbrough back.
A friend of the retired cricketer said a “broken” Clarke is already talking about reconciling with his partner, despite almost admitting to cheating on her.
He is said to be planning a “big gesture” to show how much he loves her.
“He jammed and he knows he jammed and broke, it’s that simple,” the source told Chron Australia.
“But he wants Jade back. She is the one. But he knows it takes something big to make it happen.”
His friend added that Clarke is “in an emotionally dark place” and is in close contact with his “best friend” Anthony Bell, who was also involved in the Noosa melee.
“He’s a mess…a complete mess,” they said.
