Michael and Kyly Clarke ‘are back together’ as they holiday in Palm Beach


Former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke appears to have reunited with his estranged wife Kyly, almost two years after they separated in September 2019.

The former couple – who were married for seven years before calling it quits – enjoyed a romantic getaway in Sydney’s Palm Beach over the weekend, joined by their five-year-old daughter, Kelsey Lee.

The family spent two nights at a $13million mansion owned by former Crown Resorts chairman Rob Rankin, which costs $2,400 per night to rent.

The Clarkes went on several outings to the local shopping precinct, and according to an onlooker seemed to be ‘very much an item, not just friendly exes’.

Their cosy weekend away comes after they both dated other people while separated: Michael had a high-profile romance with fashion designer Pip Edwards, while Kyly enjoyed a brief fling with V8 Supercars driver James Courtney.
