Karl Stefanovic has reportedly hired the lawyers.
News Corp reports he has hired employment lawyers to examine the circumstances of his “departure.”
While the former Today host remains under network contract, it is unclear whether he will remain at the network after This Time Next Year concludes filming in February.
Nine backflipped on keeping him at Today after continued media coverage of his wedding, much of it negative, including insider access to Seven West Media publication Who magazine.
Reports also suggest he has hired additional lawyers following ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn’s comments published in New Idea, amid suggestions they may have breached an agreement.
Thorburn, who told Studio 10 she gave no interview, is also reportedly engaging lawyers to prevent the magazine publishing an audio recording.
Stefanovic has remained upbeat in the face of upheaval and intense media attention saying, “I suppose, as they say, a change is as good as a holiday, I’m looking forward to getting back to work. I’m moving forward with a sense of excitement about what’s to come.”
