Natalie Bassingthwaighte has revealed her new romance with a woman following her recent separation from husband Cameron McGlinchey after 13 years of marriage.
The Rogue Traders singer, 47, said the woman she has started dating following her breakup ‘makes my heart smile’.
She went on to reveal Cameron, 48, already knew about her new relationship before the actor made the announcement on the Stellar Podcast on Sunday.
‘I’m in a beautiful relationship with a woman who makes my heart smile and makes me really happy,’ she said.
When media interest intensified about her split from her ex partner, Natalie said she immediately rang Cameron in ‘hysterics’ out of fear she might be outed.
‘He said, ‘It’s OK. This is your truth and you now have to sit in it and stand in it and own it,’ she revealed.
She added: ‘So to have that support from him has been nothing short of beautiful, and I’m very grateful for it.’
‘Now I can speak from my own mouth, on my own truth, and that feels rewarding. I’m OK. Everything is OK, and everyone is OK.’
It was reported that Natalie and Cameron had ‘quietly ended their marriage’ after 13 years in August.
The Neighbours star and her drummer husband, reportedly parted ways late last year and are ‘working amicably to co-parent their two children’.
The pair, who married in 2011, share daughter Harper, 13, and son Hendrix, 10.
In 2020, the family relocated from Melbourne to the NSW town of Byron Bay before lockdown began.
A representative of Natalie confirmed to Daily Mail Australia the singer had sold her Melbourne home to relocate to Byron Bay.
According to The Daily Telegraph, Natalie chose to rent in the coastal town.
While it’s not known how much their Melbourne property sold for, the couple had originally bought it for a little more than $2.5million at auction ten years ago.
