Nathan and Mel recently sold their shared $3.8 million home in Sydney following a very public split in 2017. 

The four-bedroom mansion, which overlooked the Royal National Park in the south Sydney suburb of Port Hacking, was sold in April 2019 for an undisclosed price, The Sunday Telegraph reported.  

The off-spinner, 31, bought the Sutherland Shire property for $3.8million in 2016, and had lived there with Mel and their two daughters before their relationship fell apart.

The couple, who share custody of their children, broke up about one year later when Nathan began dating glamorous blonde Emma McCarthy.

His decade-long relationship with Mel came crashing down when Daily Mail Australia photographed him passionately kissing Emma in Perth, at the end of 2017.

Mel said at the time she was left ‘devastated’ by seeing photos of her partner of ten years with the glamorous blonde.

She later spoke candidly about her struggles to cope with the relationship breakdown in a series of posts on her blog, Life of Lyons.

‘We have lived a life where he has constantly travelled, cricket was life and touring was a given… it’s easy to forget,’ she wrote in March 2018.

‘Today has been different. I have been strong, I have been brave, but today I feel weak, I feel small and I feel alone.’

Nathan’s new relationship has appeared to go from strength-to-strength, with Emma heading on overseas holidays with the cricketer and joining the bowler in England for the World Cup and the Ashes.
