Kyly Clarke’s top priority after split from husband Michael

Kyly Clarke has given her first major interview since splitting from husband Michael Clarke in February, after seven years of marriage.

Gracing the pages of The Daily Telegraph’s Stellar magazine on Sunday, the 38-year-old said the couple’s daughter Kelsey Lee, four, is ‘100 per cent’ her ‘priority’.

Kyly and retired Australian cricketer Michael Clarke, 38, had been separated for five months prior to making the announcement.

Having commenced filming for her new role as interiors judge on House Rules: High Stakes, set to premiere on Seven next month, Kyly said the schedule has allowed her to make motherhood top priority.

She explained: ‘And, I guess, why that’s so important to me is that Kelsey Lee is 100 per cent my priority. 

‘She’s this beautiful human being that I love being super-adventurous with. I will exhaust myself to give her everything I can.’

And while she kept tight-lipped about her marriage breakdown, the lifestyle entrepreneur did reveal that she is ‘pretty much a private person in general’. 

The interview comes just a month after Kyly and Michael announced their $40million divorce after seven years of marriage.

It is understood there was no third party involved in their shock split.   

Kyly and Michael had been separated for five months, but only revealed their split in a surprise announcement on February 12.  

Divorce terms: Michael and Kyly have reportedly already agreed terms on their divorce - as well as arrangements to co-parent their daughter - without going through the courts

Meanwhile, Pip Edwards, 40, was forced to deny romance rumours with Michael, after he was seen leaving her home in Sydney’s Bondi late last month.

Michael left the luxury apartment block in his $54,000 BMW just before 9am, with Pip leaving moments later in her $73,000 black Mercedes.

Michael had parked his SUV in Pip’s underground garage during the visit to her coastal home.  

The 40-year-old, who shares a son with ex-partner Dan Single, told The Sunday Telegraph’s Confidential that she has been supporting her friend and business associate ‘through a rough time’.  

‘Michael and I over the past month have spent more personal time together. I have been supporting Michael through what has been a rough time with the public view on his divorce.

‘As I have been through this before, I understand what a stressful situation this can be when you are in the media storm of a break-up and feel you have no privacy.’
