The former couple called it quits in December 2018, just weeks after the birth of their son, Billy. 

They reunited in January 2019 but called time on their marriage again in October last year.

Sam was allegedly involved in an incident with his father-in-law, Mitchell Hooke, at Phoebe’s family home near Bowral, in the NSW Southern Highlands, on October 19.

Sam had visited the property to spend time with his children when Phoebe was not present, but was asked to leave by Mr Hooke following an alleged altercation which resulted in police being called.

At the time, police took out a temporary AVO on behalf of Mr Hooke, which was upheld by a court the following month.

While the AVO is in place, Sam is not able to go within one kilometre of Mr Hooke nor any place he works.

Following the October 19 incident, Sam was also charged with intimidation. Sam has denied threatening the 63-year-old businessman.
