Police take out AVO for Jodi Gordon against new boyfriend Sebastian Blackler

Jodi Gordon’s new romance with British investment portfolio manager Sebastian Blackler has taken a turn for the worse.

Just a week after the former Neighbours star, 35, publicly declared her love for Sebastian on November 21, police took out an interim apprehended violence order (AVO) against him on her behalf.

The AVO was issued last week after a disturbance involving the couple at Jodi’s Double Bay home.

Neighbours had reported screaming at the home, before police rushed to the scene where they interviewed a man believed to be Sebastian.

Reports confirm police stayed at Jodi’s property for several hours, then issued Sebastian with an AVO preventing him from stalking, harassing or intimidating Jodi. 

Sebastian is also prohibited from damaging Jodi’s property, and cannot physically approach Jodi for at least 12 hours after drinking alcohol or taking illicit drugs.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Mr Blackler is alleged to have done any of that, and police have laid no charges against him.

Aleeia, Jodi’s daughter from her marriage to retired NRL star Braith Anasta, is not believed to have been present at the time of the disturbance. 

The matter between the couple will be heard at Sydney’s Downing Centre Court on Thursday, December 3.

What is an AVO? 

An AVO is an Apprehended Violence Order.

It is an order to protect victims of domestic violence when they are fearful of future violence or threats to their safety. 

They are sometimes called restraining orders or protection orders.

On Sunday, Jodi was spotted for the first time since her AVO drama unfolded as she took her six-year-old daughter, Aleeia, for ice cream. 

She looked glamorous in a black off-the-shoulder crop top and matching wrap skirt. 

The TV star swept her brunette hair into a low chignon and completed her look with a pair of flat sandals.

Despite her rocky love life, Jodi looked upbeat as she helped her daughter climb out of their luxury car and cross the street towards a convenience store.

Aleeia, who wore a pale yellow sundress and matching scrunchie, was later seen leaving the store with an ice cream in hand, while Jodi clutched an energy drink. 

The AVO matter is worlds away from the loved-up relationship Jodi was portraying on social media just a week earlier.
