TV Host Karl Stefanovic Asks Nick Kyrgios About His Ex In On-Air Gaffe
Karl Stefanovic has brutally stitched up Nick Kyrgios up on live TV.
The Today Show host made things a little bit tense in the Channel 9 studio when he asked Nick Kyrgios about his ex-girlfriend rather than his current one.
The Aussie tennis star joined the morning breakfast show to discuss his recent withdrawal from the US Open due to COVID-19 fears, but things took an awkward turn when co-host Stefanovic asked Kyrgios about his life off the tennis court.
"Nick, you look incredibly happy, the happiest I've ever seen you and I do like looking at your Instagram. Seems like someone else is making you happy. How are things - can I ask how are things with Anna? Is it all cool?" Stefanovic said.
Looking away from the monitor in embarrassment, Kyrgios replied: "Oh, geez! No, I've actually got a new girlfriend, mate. You've just thrown me under the bus on live television."

The World No. 40 was left a little red-faced at first but the duo soon laughed it off and continued chatting.
When asked about his new relationship, Kyrgios said: "Her name is Chiara (Passari). You'd love her, mate. Don't get too jealous. Incredibly happy obviously this time. It has been awesome just actually spending time with my family. I haven't seen them in a while.
"It's all going on track and obviously lucky enough to have met her and she makes me incredibly happy. Moving forward, I'm happy with her."
The woman Stefanovic was originally referring to was Kyrgios' ex-girlfriend - Russian tennis star Anna Kalinskaya.
The pair parted ways in May and Kyrgios started seeing Italian badminton player Passari.
