It’s been two years since her split from Karl Stefanovic after 21 years of marriage.

And Cassandra Thorburn has opened up about the impact the breakup has had on her and the three children she shares with her ex, Jackson, 18, Ava, 12, and River, 10.

“Last year, I declared that Karl really was dead to me, a man I no longer know, but the children still have their father,” she told The Australian Women’s Weekly.

“The flip-side of that is I feel like we’re dead to his family and almost anyone from our old life.

“There has been practically no contact. I feel like we’ve been discarded and disposed of, replaced by a whole new line-up of starters.”

Last year Cassandra spoke about her struggles adjusting to life without Karl, as he moved on with shoe designer Jasmine Yarbrough.

“I was completely gazumped when I realised Karl had gone,” she told Woman’s Day in October.

“I questioned and doubted myself about everything.”

“The children still have a father but I don’t have a husband,” she also told the publication. “He really is dead to me and no, we won’t ever be friends again.”

Karl, 44, left Cassandra in October of last year and just months later, started a relationship with shoe designer, Jasmine Yarbrough.
