Michael Clarke speaks out for the first time since splitting with bikini model Lara Bingle

Michael Clarke Speaks for First Time Since Split

Michael Clarke broke his silence today and spoke to the media in Wellington, New Zealand. The cricket star credited his BFF Shane Warne for helping him through his high-profile break-up with Lara Bingle. When asked if he had spoken to her since the split, he said he wasn’t going to comment on his personal life. He did admit that he never expected the intense media scrutiny in the wake of the separation, but had no regrets about leaving the team last week to fly home to her side. Michael added, “It's been a very interesting couple of weeks but it's great to be back here with my teammates. I went home, did what I had to do. It was something I thought was important and needed to be done. Cricket Australia, the ACA (Australian Cricketers Association), my friends and family have been wonderful.” Meanwhile, Lara is back to doing what she does best—chillaxing with her peeps and being papped.
