Today show weatherman Steve Jacobs was reportedly involved in an ‘altercation’ at a Vanuatu gym with his estranged wife Rosie’s new lover, it can be revealed.
The incident is said to have happened at the Ultimate Fitness gym in Port Vila in front of multiple people on February 24 this year.
A witness claimed Dylan Nash, a Canadian ex-commando, was working out at the gym with a mate when Steve arrived and an altercation ensued.
‘The gym was pretty busy and Dylan was standing there talking to someone when all of a sudden Stevie came up to him,’ the witness told Daily Mail Australia.

‘Dylan’s well over six-foot and Stevie’s obviously much smaller, but he went up to him and shouted something about moving in on his wife.
‘I think Dylan just replied saying he’d lost his wife long before he came on the scene.’
An Ultimate Fitness employee confirmed the incident occurred at the gym but would not be drawn on further details.
‘They are two good members, one happened to be doing his thing and the other was there as well and I can’t really say more than that,’ the employee told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday.
‘If you need to know more you’ll have to talk to those guys. I can’t really comment.’
Police are reportedly aware of the confrontation, but no official complaint was filed by either party.
The gym incident also cryptically made its way into a gossip column of the local Port Vila newspaper, The Daily Post.
‘There’s a huge expat contingent over here and a lot of them were in the gym, so it really was just the talk of town,’ the friend said.
Neither Steve or Mr Nash responded to attempts for comment in recent days.
The incident came just weeks after Rosie went to Vanuatu police and took out an AVO against Stevie. The order has since expired.

The downfall of the TV couple’s eight-year marriage was revealed on the weekend, a number of months after they official called it quits in late-2017.
A TIMELINE OF THE JACOBS’ MARRIAGE:

2007: Rosie meets Steve while working on the Today show
2009: Steve separates from first wife Alison
2010: Steve and Rosie marry in Bali
2011: The couple welcome their first daughter Isabella in May
2013: Francesca, Steve and Rosie’s second daughter, is born in April
2016: The couple move to Vanuatu in a ‘last ditch effort to save their marriage’
2018: Steve and Rosie separate after eight years of marriage
The Jacobs’, who have two young girls, moved to Vanuatu in 2016 in what their friends described as a last ditch attempt to save their marriage.
Rosie and Steve’s move to the Pacific Island nation came in a bid to increase the time spent with their two young daughters.
But the two have continued to regularly travel overseas, with Steve working in a part-time role with Weekend Today and Rosie for Channel 7 program Sydney Weekender.
Leaving his full-time role with the Today show after 12 years, Steve continued on in a position with Weekend Today after he moved to Port Vila.
At the time, he tearfully told his long-time friend Karl Stefanovic the move was what he and his family needed.
‘For the past 12 years, I haven’t been able to wake up once with my wife, haven’t been able to get the kids to daycare,’ Steve said.

The pair met on Today in 2007, where Steve was a star weatherman and Rosie one of the breakfast show’s producers.
In 2010, after Steve finalised his divorce to wife of two decades Alison, he and Rosie tied the knot in Bali.
The pair welcomed their first daughter Isabella in 2011 and their second Francesca in April 2013.
The couple’s family home in Coogee, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, was recently put up for sale. It is set to fetch north of $4million when it goes under the hammer.
The couple purchased the four-bedroom home in 2011 for $2.55million and had been renting it since moving to Vanuatu.
Ballard Property Group Double Bay has listed the property for auction on April 7.
