‘Kate and John haven’t seen each other since January, even though borders to Victoria opened a few weeks ago. She hasn’t mentioned wanting to go visit him once’.

Kate has been enjoying life again after her tumultuous relationship with her ex-husband, footy star Stuart Webb in 2019.

On Monday, Woman’s Day published photos of the former Home and Away actress leaving Sydney hotspot Bondi Icebergs with a mystery man.

Kate’s radio co-star Tim Blackwell seemed to hint that a new romance might be afoot, noting that Kate looked particularly glam for just a ‘work’ day.

Kate and John reportedly stayed at an Airbnb and spent most of their time relaxing by their private mineral salt pool and visiting Byron Bay’s top restaurants.

While little is known about John, resurfaced court records show he has had a minor brush with the law.

Court extracts reveal John was charged with careless driving in March 2015, but was not convicted.

John started security solutions business VIREOSS in September 2019.

He runs the company from the small town of Seymour, an hour and a half from Melbourne.

Meanwhile, Kate has been keeping a low profile since splitting from her husband, retired NRL player Stuart Webb, after 10 years of marriage.

While it’s unclear when exactly Kate and Stuart split, she hasn’t worn her wedding ring in more than a year and moved out of their marital home in Sydney’s Randwick in late 2019.

Kate moved out after police took out an interim AVO on her behalf against the former rugby league star following an incident at the property.

In December 2019, Stuart’s five-time drink driving history was revealed in a police fact sheet as he faced court for blowing 0.083 when he was pulled over by highway patrolmen in the city’s east in March of that year.
