The Hype

Sandilands's agent, Andrew Hawkins, told 7News the couple is now separated.

"Kyle Sandilands and Tamara Jaber wish to acknowledge the past few months have been challenging due to their individual work demands which have required extensive periods of time apart," he said. "The couple are now separated, but are committed to supporting one another and endeavouring to address their difficulties."

Speculation has been rife since Woman's Day reported that Sandilands told friends "I'm off with Tamara," at a private party in Sydney last week.

A friend of the couple reportedly told the magazine that "It's an open secret," that the couple are no longer together.

The magazine also reported that Sandilands had been living in a hotel room at Star City Casino in Sydney while Jaber has been staying at the couple's $1.9 million home in St Ives.

In early May rumours about the status of the relationship began. These rumours were quashed by the couple's manager, Andrew Hawkins.

"Kyle and Tamara have not split," Hawkins said.

The Herald Sun reported that the break up rumours began in Sandilands camp and it could be to drum up publicity. Tamara and former Australian Idol contestant Reigan Derry have formed girl group Scarlett Belle. The group has recently released their new single, Closure. Tamara is also currently competing on Dancing With The Stars.

Earlier this month Tamara showed Better Homes & Gardens through the couples lavish St. Ives home. Though Sandilands wasn't present the starlet had only kind words to say about Kyle and there was no indication that their were any issues with the relationship.
