Retired Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke and wife Kyly announce shock split

Michael Clarke and wife Kyly have announced they’re seperating after seven years of marriage.

The former Australian cricket captain and TV presenter revealed their shock split in a joint statement to The Australian’s Media Diary tonight.

“After living apart for some time, we have made the difficult decision to separate as a couple, amicably,” the statement read.

“With the greatest of respect for each other, we’ve come to the mutual conclusion that this is the best course for us to take while committed to the co-parenting of our daughter.”

Their divorce is reportedly estimated to be worth $40 million.

The couple are believed to have separated five months ago and have reportedly already agreed on arrangements to co-parent their four-year-old daughter Kelsey Lee.
