Jodi Gordon has reportedly split with banker boyfriend Sebastian Blackler just five months after a police court order was put in place to protect the former Neighbours actress.  

Gordon, 36, and Blackler, 30, parted ways after their six-month relationship ‘fizzled out’, The Daily Telegraph reports.  

Gordon confirmed her relationship with the British-born investment portfolio manager last year, going official on Instagram on November 21, 2020.

‘When life gets wonderful…’ she captioned the post.

It is understood Gordon had been dating Blackler for several weeks before making their romance ‘Instagram official’.

But within a week, police took out an interim AVO to prevent Blackler from assaulting, threatening, stalking, harassing or intimidating Gordon following an incident at her Double Bay home on November 27.

Police were called to Gordon’s eastern suburbs home shortly after midnight after reports of a disturbance. 

Blackler was not charged but was prohibited from damaging Gordon’s property, and cannot physically approach her for at least 12 hours after drinking alcohol or taking illicit drugs.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Blackler is alleged to have done any of those things.

Gordon’s six-year-old daughter from her marriage to retired NRL star Braith Anasta, was not believed to have been present at the time of the disturbance at her home.

The former couple are also understood to have recently unfollowed each other on Instagram

‘Around 12.30am on Friday, November 27, 2020, officers were called to a unit at Winston Gardens at Double Bay,’ a NSW Police spokesman said.

‘Following inquiries, officers from Eastern Suburbs suspended the investigation at the request of the victim. No further action is expected at this time.’     

The former couple have also recently unfollowed each other on Instagram. 

According to Woman’s Day, the news surprised those close to the actress as she had been ‘head over heels’ and ‘beaming with joy’ over her new relationship just days before the incident. 

Blackler appeared briefly in Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court without Gordon, but accompanied by a lawyer. 

He consented to a one-year order when he appeared in Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court without making any admissions of wrongdoing.

He told Daily Mail Australia outside court the pair was still together and ‘moving forward’ at the time.      

Gordon, who won a modelling competition aged 13, married Anasta in October 2012 and the couple announced their separation in December 2015.

From 2005 to 2010 the actor played Martha MacKenzie in Home and Away. She won a Logie for most popular new female talent in 2006.

Gordon portrayed English teacher Elly Conway on Neighbours from 2015 until announcing she had quit the show in January last year.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Gordon for comment.
