It’s over! Kyly Clarke (pictured) has broken her silence after announcing her split from her husband, former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke, on Wednesday

Kyly had just finished her morning workout when she spoke to Daily Mail Australia and was not wearing her wedding ring. 

She also said that the pair’s four-year-old daughter, Kelsey Lee, ‘is doing amazing’. 

But when asked if she and Michael, also 38, would be attending his personal assistant Sasha Armstrong’s upcoming wedding, Kyly shrugged before saying she ‘wanted privacy’. 

‘We said everything we wanted to say in our statement,’ she added firmly.

Sasha had made headlines in November 2018 when she was photographed in a bikini while sailing on a yacht with her employer. 

But it turned out to just be a work trip and nothing more, as she is set to marry her fiancé, Tyler Robinson, in six weeks’ time.
