Kyly Clarke looks agitated as she gossips to a friend in Bondi Beach


Her ex-husband’s new girlfriend, Pip Edwards, issued an apology on Wednesday after attending an Australia Day party hours after saying the day should not be celebrated.

And just as Pip’s grovelling message came to light, Kyly Clarke was spotted gossiping with a female pal as the pair took a morning stroll through Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

The former cricket WAG, 39 – who remains amicable with her ex Michael following their split in February 2020 – appeared agitated as she raised her hands in the air in disbelief, while her friend looked ahead solemnly.

Her facial expression seemed to hint she was annoyed, as she scowled while twisting her water bottle in front of her body.

Kyly, who is the mother of Kelsey-Lee, five, showed off her epic abs in a black sports bra for the outing, which she teamed with a pair of tight leggings. 

While it’s not known exactly what Kyly was discussing, her heated chat came hours after Pip was blasted by critics for seemingly backflipping on her anti-Australia Day message.

In a post on Instagram Stories, Pip Edwards shared a letter to a publication which argued that Australia Day shouldn’t be celebrated on January 26.

The 40-year-old fashion designer endorsed the letter’s message by captioning her post: ‘IN BLACK AND WHITE.’

But just hours later, the P.E Nation co-founder shared photos from an Australia Day party she attended, and wrote: ‘A day to celebrate the land that we live and thrive on. I love you, Australia.’ 

Pip also shared a video of a man raising both the Australian and Aboriginal flags, but the Aboriginal flag was flown upside down by mistake.

After facing mass backlash online, Pip issued a grovelling apology online for her actions on Wednesday morning. She wrote: ‘I want to express my sincere apologies to those that I have offended.’

‘My intentions were always from a good place, in support of all people, wanting unity and community in this country and globally,’ the mother of one continued.

Pip insisted she had ‘no idea’ the Aboriginal flag was upside down in the photos she uploaded from Tuesday’s backyard party.

‘I innocently did not realise that the Aboriginal flag was upside down and was more focused on the idea of raising both flags together on the one pole, flying as one. I understand it was a huge mistake to not know at the time but my intention was never to cause disrespect,’ she wrote.

Sorrow: 'I want to express my sincere apologies to those that I have offended,' the mother of one wrote on Instagram next to a photo of the beach on Wednesday morning

She also expressed regret over sharing another Australia Day post on Tuesday that read: ‘A day to celebrate the land that we live and thrive on. I love you, Australia.’

Apologising for her choice of words, Pip said she’d made the error of incorrectly using the phrase ‘celebrate the land’ when she should have said ‘acknowledge the land’.

‘Again, a big mistake on my part and for that I deeply apologise,’ she concluded.
