Gareth explained his absence from the Sydney social circuit, telling The Daily Telegraph that he ‘needed a little hiatus’ from the limelight. 

‘I think I was too much in the public eye with certain things going on,’ he said.

He added that he’s a ‘guy that lives in the shadows a bit too.’

Gareth famously dated former socialite and model Lara Bingle, now 33, for about a year in 2012 to 2013.

Lara once credited Gareth for helping her lose weight and being a motivator. At the time, she lost an incredible 12kg.

She told Who magazine at the time that he helped influence her new healthy lifestyle. 

‘(I) got rid of everything that was weighing me down,’ she told the publication.

‘I’ve learnt you’ve got to be consistent in your eating and training. Gareth’s taught me that.’

Lara, who is currently based in Sydney with her husband Sam and their family, has had a number of high-profile romances over the years.

She was once engaged to former Australian cricketer Michael Clarke from 2008 to 2010, dated Jason Derulo and once had a controversial affair with former AFL star Brendan Fevola, which was outed by a nude shower photo.

Lara is now happily married to Australian actor Sam, who she wed in 2014, and they share three young sons together.
