Sylvia Jeffreys blasts magazine for “marriage woes” claim
Today show newsreader Sylvia Jeffreys has criticised an Australian magazine for publishing a fake story about her personal life.
Jeffreys slammed New Idea for an article which claims she and husband Peter Stefanovic are having marriage troubles.
"Today’s offering from the 'Fabricated Stories Based on Unflattering Papparazzi Photos' file. Why no byline?" Jeffreys wrote on Instagram.
The 32-year-old also included the ‘poo’ emoji with her comment.
Jeffreys also shared the paparazzi photo New Idea used in the article, which shows her and Stefanovic looking serious as they walk in public.
The magazine’s headline reads “New Relationship Hell”, adding that the couple is “far from the throes of newlywed bliss”.
Jeffrey’s post has received over 8,000 likes, with many fans and colleagues also poking fun at the article.
Channel Nine’s Leila McKinnon wrote, “Youse look fab to me, soz about the marriage though.”
Nine news presenter Wendy Kingston also used the poo emoji and wrote, “but the sunnies look fab xx”.
Karl Stefanovic’s girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough also commented on the post writing: “Hahaha it’s so bad!! Don’t worry love. Our marriage is apparently off as well. Maybe we should move in together?"
Jeffreys and Stefanovic wed last year in April during an intimate ceremony in the Kangaroo Valley in New South Wales.
