Jade Yarbrough has finally broken her silence on the wild car park fight in January with former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke.
Yarbrough has been nothing but class after the sensational video emerged at the start of this year.
Clarke sent shockwaves around Australia when he was filmed, shirtless, in a screaming match with Yarbrough in a Noosa car park, who accused him of cheating on her with his ex, fashion designer Pip Edwards.

In the video, Yarbrough slapped the cricket great on the face during an expletive-laden screaming match.
Clarke – who was infamously injury-prone during his decorated international cricket career and dogged by chronic back troubles – can be seen clearly limping, and even heard saying, “I’ve done my hammy”.
He tries to chase after Yarbrough, but appears to be considerably hampered by the hamstring injury.

Now Yarbrough has opened up on the impact of having her private life played out in public.
“There’s no rule book for navigating constant headlines, public life and heartbreak,” Yarbrough tells Stellar magazine.

Michael Clarke shares heartbreaking family news: ‘Extremely tough day’
“Relationships can be tough and complicated and most people don’t have theirs splashed on the front page of the paper or dissected on breakfast TV. I felt heartbroken and deeply embarrassed. I just wanted to hide forever. Eventually I made my peace with it.
“I had to find self-compassion and accept that I’m human, and I’m just doing my best. I can only stand up and own my share of responsibility for what I do and say. I can’t control what anyone else does or says.”
Not long after the video emerged, Clarke said he was “gutted” and took full responsibility.

“I accept full responsibility for this altercation and am shattered by my actions,” he said.
Edwards said in January that “it is definitely not my circus and I would like to say the carnival is over”.
But it is a different scenario for Yarbrough who says there has been an eerie side effect since the video was “sold” to News Corp.
She said the “constant commentary” meant people now felt like they knew her and now she had “this feeling like I’m being watched constantly”.
She said that had been “intense and isolating”.
But she said her family had been her “rock” and she also had great support from friends.
