Lara Worthington smiles after ex Michael Clarke’s Noosa brawl video

Her face says it all: Lara Worthington grins like a Cheshire cat as her ex-boyfriend Michael Clarke makes headlines over Noosa brawl video

Lara Worthington appeared to flash a knowing smile on Friday as she stepped out in Sydney – two days after a video leaked of her ex-fiancé Michael Clarke getting into a blazing row with his new girlfriend Jade Yarbrough.

The model and beauty entrepreneur, 35, who now lives in America with her Hollywood actor husband Sam Worthington, was pictured making a low-key exit from her hotel and being ushered into a waiting car.

She kept her head down but could briefly be seen grinning as she ducked into the car while a hotel staff member opened the door for her.

She effortlessly stylish in a vintage leather jacket and accessorised with a pair of futuristic black sunglasses.

Her short blonde hair was styled in a wet look, and her makeup palette was minimal.

Clarke’s engagement to Worthington – then known by her maiden name Lara Bingle – came crashing down in 2010 amid rumours her $200,000 diamond ring ended up flushed down the toilet of their Bondi home.

While she has rarely spoken of their relationship since the split, it’s possible she was quietly enjoying some of the scandalous headlines about her ex, as she was the subject of many salacious tabloid articles herself in the 2000s.

The former couple began dating in 2007, after meeting on the set of Channel Nine’s now-defunct reality TV show Torvill and Dean’s Dancing on Ice.

In March the next year, they became engaged during a romantic trip to New York.

But in a late-night press conference in March 2010, Clarke confirmed his two-year engagement to the former Tourism Australia spokesmodel was over.

Their split came just months after a photo of Worthington in the shower – taken years earlier by AFL star Brendan Fevola during their brief relationship – was published by a magazine.

Following their split, there were rumours Worthington’s $200,000 engagement ring was flushed down the toilet in their $6million Bondi beachside pad. 

Her sighting in Sydney comes less than 48 hours after extraordinary footage emerged of her Clarke and his current girlfriend Jade Yarbrough getting involved in a stunning confrontation in a public park.

The shirtless former Test cricket captain was slapped during the blazing row and accused of infidelity by his tearful partner.

In the footage, filmed by an onlooker on January 10 and released by The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday, Yarbrough claims she has proof Clarke, 41, slept with his ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards behind her back on December 17.

Queensland Police has since confirmed it is investigating the confrontation.

‘Queensland Police are investigating an incident between a 30-year-old woman and 41-year-old man depicted in footage at Lions Park on Gympie Terrace in Noosaville earlier this month,’ a spokesperson said.

‘As this matter on January 10, 2023 is under investigation the Queensland Police Service is unable to provide any further comment.’

The video shows Clarke being screamed at and slapped by his furious girlfriend as others in the group, including his good mate Karl Stefanovic and celebrity accountant Anthony Bell, try to defuse the fracas.

At one stage, Clarke swears on his daughter Kelsey Lee’s life he did not cheat, but Yarbrough refuses to believe Clarke’s protests and claims she spoke to Edwards, who allegedly showed her text messages confirming the tryst.

Clarke, who is limping after injuring his hamstring in the melee, goads Yarbrough to hit him several times, and she eventually does.

After Yarbrough is led away by her sister Jasmine – Stefanovic’s wife – Clarke then tries to follow Yarbrough before he unleashes a wave of fury at the Today show host, seemingly because he is following the two sisters.

‘Karlos, I can tell you now c**t, don’t you f**king walk away. She can, she can punch me, but you, you c**t,’ Clarke says.

This comment sparks fury from Yarbrough, who defends her brother-in-law before slapping Clarke repeatedly in the face.

‘You piece of s**t, don’t you f**king speak to him,’ she yells.

A remorseful Clarke has since 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 Daily Telegraph on Wednesday.

‘I am shattered that because of my actions I’ve drawn women of class and integrity, and my mates, into this situation.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted all other parties involved for comment.
