Jade Yarbrough’s world appeared to shatter Wednesday night when footage emerged of her slapping boyfriend Michael Clarke as she accused him of cheating on her with his ex Pip Edwards.
But just hours before the disaster, the 30-year-old interior designer was enjoying a relaxing morning of yoga during her summer holiday in Noosa, Queensland.
The blonde beauty took to Instagram on the morning the shocking incident came to light and posted a tranquil photo of her soothing ritual.

Lined up along the gorgeous view were almost a dozen yoga mats with exercise balls waiting to be used.
‘Best start to the day,’ Yarbrough captioned the photo, tagging the time as 6:56am.

The Today show host and Australian cricket great clashed while holidaying together with their respective partners, sisters Jasmine and Jade Yarbrough on Queensland‘s Sunshine Coast on January 10.
All hell broke loose while the couples were having dinner at a beachside restaurant in Noosa with celebrity accountant mate Anthony Bell.
It’s understood the melee was over Clarke’s ex-girlfriend, high profile fashion designer Edwards and recent text messages between the pair.
The dramatic footage obtained by the Daily Telegraph shows a shirtless Clarke being screamed at and slapped by his hysterical girlfriend as others in the group try to defuse the fracas.
Michael Clarke was involved in a late night altercation with his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough before turning his fury on good mate and Jade’s brother-in-law Karl Stefanovic
During the furious exchange, Jade accused Clarke of sleeping with his ex-girlfriend Pip on December 17 and messaging her to say she is the ‘love of his life’.
The video begins with Jade screaming at Clarke before she slaps him in the face and pushes him away after the cricket legend claimed he had not cheated on her.
‘I’m wrong? I’m f****ng wrong! You’re a f***ing liar. I can see everything. You called her,’ Jade screams, apparently referring to messages between Clark and Pip.
Clarke then tried to reassure Jade that he had not slept with Pip on December 17 and claimed he had been with his mate Bell that night.
‘Baby you’re wrong, you’re wrong,’ Clarke insists. ‘Baby, baby, Belly was at the house. I swear on my life, I swear on my life… That’s not true, it’s not true.’
He then swore on his daughter Kelsey’s life that he did not cheat on her. ‘I swear on my daughter’s life, on my daughter’s life,’ Clarke says.
But Jade doesn’t believe his desperate protests and claims she spoke to Pip.
‘You’re f******g lying to me. You are a piece of s**t. I just spoke to her. What is wrong with you?’
Clarke again denied sleeping with Pip and replied: ‘No I didn’t. You can hit me. That’s not true, that’s not true.’
Clarke appeared to have injured his hamstring in the melee after he was pushed to the ground by Jade as he was seen hobbling across the public park.
Stefanovic’s wife Jasmine eventually steps in and grabs her distressed sister by the arm and drags Jade away. Jasmine can be heard saying: ‘Get away with Karl, get away with Karl.’
As she is led away, Jade can be heard crying as she turns to Clarke and says: ‘I f***ing hate you.’
Clarke then tries to follow Jade before he unleashes a wave of fury at Stefanovic, presumably because he is walking away with the two sisters.
‘Karlos, I can tell you now c**t, don’t you f*****g walk away. She can, she can punch me, but you, you c**t,’ Clarke says.
The comment sparks fury from Jade who defends her brother-in-law before slapping Clarke repeatedly in the face.
‘You piece of s**t, don’t you f*****g speak to him,’ she yelled.

Stefanovic and his celebrity accountant mate Anthony Bell can be heard telling the couple to stop, which falls on deaf ears.
‘Go, hit me hit me … do it again, you’re wrong, you’re f**king wrong,’ Clarke tells his girlfriend.
Jade screams: ‘Oh am I wrong? You f**ked her (Pip) on December 17, you f**ked her… you’re a f**king dog … I’m going to show her every f**king message you ever f**king sent me.’
She makes reference to a text she saw on Clarke’s phone inviting Pip to come to India with him.
‘Oh yeah, you’re the love of my life Pip, come to India,’ Jade said.
Clarke replied: ‘Don’t ever talk to me again.’
The two minute clip ends with her sister Jasmine and Bell separating the feuding couple.
‘Stop Jade, stop,’ Jasmine pleads. Bell adds: ‘Let it go Jade.’
The ugly altercation unfolded in front of young children nearby, according to stunned witnesses.
A remorseful Clarke has taken full responsibility for what happened.
‘I’m absolutely gutted I’ve put people I hold in the highest regard in this position. My actions in the lead-up to this altercation were nothing short of shameful and regrettable,’ he told the publication on Wednesday night.
‘I am shattered that because of my actions I’ve drawn women of class and integrity, and my mates, into this situation.’
His former partner Pip distanced herself from the ‘debacle’ as she issued a brutal swipe at Clarke when contacted by Daily Mail Australia.
‘This is not my circus. Yet again, Michael in his true nature has not taken responsibility for his actions and I was blatantly lied to,’ she said.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted all other parties involved for comment.
The altercation took place just one day after Clarke and Jade silenced recent break-up rumours when they packed on the PDA at Noosa’s Main Beach while on holidays.
Michael Clarke dated Pip Edwards (pictured in happier times) on and off for 18 months before ending things for good a year ago
Clarke’s relationship with his former partner Edwards began in June 2020, following his split from wife Kyly, which they had announced four months earlier.
He and Pip had been friends for more than a decade before that, but grew close while working on a fashion project together.
The couple called it quits in December 2021.
A source close to the pair confirmed the split, saying: ‘The decision was mutual. They’re two best friends who decided to part ways as a couple earlier this month, but continue their friendship.’
After their break-up, Pip had a fling with Bondi restaurateur Cameron Northway for about four months, but that fizzled out and she got back with Michael.
Michael and Pip recently attended the New Year’s Day bash at Sydney’s iconic Icebergs.
The batsman was married to former model Kyly Clarke (née Boldy), 40, from 2012 until 2019, but the couple didn’t announce their separation until February 2020.
The Clarkes had kept their separation quiet for several months before she put out a statement on Instagram saying their priority was their daughter.
In a statement at the time, the pair said the ‘amicable’ decision to separate was ‘the best course’ for their daughter.
