Radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands has reportedly been involved in a very public spat with his rumoured new love interest, that resulted in the police being called.
According to The Sunday Telegraph, the incident occurred on Saturday morning on Beach Road, Bondi at about 7am, and is said to have involved his rumoured girlfriend Tegan Kynaston.
Onlookers called police after the woman, thought to be Tegan, allegedly caused damage to Kyle’s Bentley, before then also allegedly assaulting one of the police officers after they arrived on the scene.
“On arrival officers found a woman who was visibly distressed with a man who was driving a car,” New South Wales Police said in a statement.
“While speaking with the woman it will be alleged in court she assaulted one of the officers before being taken to hospital for a mental health assessment. The man was spoken to by police and left the area soon after. The woman will be issued a Future Court Attendance Notice for assaulting police.”
The talk of a workplace romance first cropped up when unnamed sources spoke to several news outlets, including Woman’s Day, suggesting a relationship was blooming between the pair.
But reps for Kyle quickly blasted the speculation as completely false.
“It’s utterly ridiculous,” Kyle’s manager told The Daily Mail, describing the story as “fabricated garbage”.
Kyle Sandilands split with his girlfriend of eight years, Imogen Anthony, in November, saying their relationship had ‘run its course’.
He confirmed the sad news on his KIIS FM radio show, choking up as he made the announcement to his fans.
“We haven’t been living with each other for quite a few months now, unfortunately, it’s run its course,” he started.
“Just when you start to think everything’s good...
“We won’t be going into any detail about anything,” he concluded.
