Kyle Sandilands reveals his ex-wife Tamara Jaber tried to call off their wedding a day before the ceremony
It’s been over a decade since Kyle Sandilands married Tamara Jaber before splitting with the former pop star just two years later.
And on Tuesday, the radio host admitted that that his red-headed bride told him they were ‘making a huge mistake’ getting married – one day before their wedding.
The 50-year-old recalled how Tamara was furious he was giving away tickets to their nuptials on his radio show.
Destined to fail? Kyle Sandilands has revealed that his ex-wife Tamara Jaber tried to call off their 2008 wedding a day before the ceremony
‘When I was married my wife told me the morning before we got married – she was only my girlfriend then – “I think we’re making the biggest mistake of our life getting married tomorrow,”‘ he said on The Kyle and Jackie O show.
‘And I was like, “no, don’t be silly. Everyone’s here.” And I thought these were just pre-wedding jitters, but no she really didn’t want to,’ he added with a laugh.
Jackie, who was a bridesmaid at the wedding, said of the ceremony: ‘Oh my god, and it had been such a public display. Everything had been on air about it, listeners were coming, it was expensive… we were broadcasting live.’
Kyle explained: ‘I had given away listener tickets… she was not happy about that. Let me tell you she was very upset that I gave away tickets.’

He said that Tamara had told him he was ‘making a mockery’ of their wedding by giving the tickets away.
The shock jock then lamented over spending a million dollars on their wedding reception, saying he truly believed he would only be married once.
Jackie noted that he ‘may only be married once’, to which Kyle said ‘No, no I’ll get married again for sure.’

He jokingly adding: ‘Someone’s got to be in control of this… it’s easy when the beast is really old and lame, just laying around.’
