Lauren Phillips ‘had nervous breakdown’ after Lachlan Spark marriage split


‘It didn’t end well’: Emotional Lauren Phillips reveals she ‘almost had a nervous breakdown’ following split from husband Lachlan Spark after just one year of marriage

Lauren Phillips has revealed she almost had a ‘nervous breakdown’ following her split from ex-husband Lachlan Spark in 2018, after just one year of marriage.

She admitted on KIIS 101.1’s Jase & Lauren in the Morning the relationship ended badly after she ‘sacrificed her own health’ trying to make things work.

‘It didn’t end well. When you’re an adult it’s not a hard exit, it was a really slow, drawn breakdown process. We were together for seven years,’ Lauren said on Monday.

‘We decided to buy a house, renovate a house, start a new business and get married at the same time, so there was this extensive pressure bubble we had put ourselves in, and there was a myriad of other issues playing along with that,’ she added.

Lauren continued: ‘That made me break down very quickly, but I was determined to try everything I possibly could and that meant sacrificing my own health in the end, and that is why I almost had a nervous breakdown.’ 

She went on to say she was ‘proud’ of how she handled the break-up – in what was perhaps a subtle swipe at Lachlan for criticising her publicly after their split.

‘I’m very confident that I’m in a position where I can hold my head high from that relationship. It wasn’t great, but I’m proud of the way that I handled it,’ she said. 

Lauren then became emotional as she admitted it took her ‘a really long time to talk about’ her marriage breakdown.

‘I had a really tough eight months that took a lot of support from people around me to get through… I’m just so grateful I’ve come out of the other side,’ she said.

The Weekend Today presenter was married to Lachlan, a TV producer who now runs his own creative agency, for just one year before calling it quits in December 2018.

The pair had dated for six years before tying the knot on the Mornington Peninsula in 2017.

Following their break-up, Lachlan accused Lauren of ‘caring more about herself’ during their relationship and said he’d wasted years of his life with the wrong person.

‘A while ago, I married a girl who cared much more about herself and how she was perceived than she did about me,’ he wrote on Instagram last November.

‘It was a lot… too much, actually. I left and despite losing almost every friend I’d found over seven years (and a few other “best mates” for good measure) in the blink of an eye, it was the best thing I’ve ever done.

‘Approaching 40, I was more than a bit nervous I’d wasted a big chunk of my life with the wrong person, and that I was long odds to find anyone who was willing (or able) to give me the love I knew I deserved.

‘I truly believed there was more to a relationship (and life) than skin-deep friends, free holidays and Instagram followers – I just needed to find it.’ 

Lauren began dating aviation tycoon Paul O’Brien last year while she was living in Melbourne.

The Nine personality recently sparked rumours they were secretly engaged after she was spotted sporting a ring at Sydney Airport.
