The Today presenter burst into tears during a tragic interview with a Queensland man whose mother died in quarantine while he waited by her side in the hotel. An old school friend Karl Stefanovic told the news on-air how his mother died after being trapped in a hotel quarantine after the Queensland government refused to see him one last time. Stefanovic had travelled from Canada to Australia to be with his mother after being diagnosed with cancer three weeks ago.
Karl Stefanovic’s old friend from St Augustines College in Cairns with him attended with him on Thursday morning when he told an emotional host he had been refused permission to come out of the hotel’s quarantine to say goodbye to his mother. Something extraordinary happened to Today Presenter Karl late 2016, five months after he left his wife of 21 years and the mother of his children Cassandra and Thorburn. After the split, he spent a glorious afternoon in Sydney on a partner boat and met Australian shoe designer Jasmine Yarbrough, the woman who would become his second wife and mother of his fourth child.
