After the latest episode of Channel Nine’s A Current Affair aired the interview with Michael Clarke, fans are surprisingly angry over the clarification by Clarke. Some even started trolling him. Although Michael Clarke tried his best to rectify the disastrous public brawl.
Speaking on the incident he said that it was like a lesson for him and he was hopeful not to repeat any such mistake in the future. “I call them lessons. I call so many things you know, you wish that … I think relationships are tough, a lot happens behind closed doors and a lot of things happen that we all deal with, I’ve dealt with a divorce, you know, man, I’ve been through and it’s so sad, so hard, Clarke tried to make amends with the clarification.
In the video, a shirtless Clarke is seen in a violent fight with his ex-girlfriend after she allegedly accused him of cheating with his former girlfriend Pip Edwards.
