Ex-wife breaks silence on Clarke rumours
Kyly Clarke has explained why she was spotted on Sydney's northern beaches with ex-husband Michael last weekend.
"I wish them well," Edwards said, speaking at Australian Fashion Week.
Pictures also emerged of Michael and Kyly spending time with daughter Kelsey-Lee last weekend. The former power couple were spotted at an Avalon cafe and were later seen getting groceries together.

But Michael put an end to the speculation on Friday morning, defiantly telling The Kyle and Jackie O Show he and Kyly were not back together.
Kyly, 39, was also asked about the rumours on Channel 7's The Morning Show, denying there was any romance with Michael on the family holiday.
"A family holiday, it's a great opportunity to get everyone together," she said on Monday morning.
"Kelsey-Lee's aunty, uncle and cousins were there, and I think like anything, you're trying your best to put your daughter first and prioritise her and she really had a ball.
"It's fantastic, it's what anyone would want to achieve or try to achieve if you're in this position, and I think her smile on her face says everything."
In February last year, Michael and Kyly confirmed they were separating after seven years of marriage.
The couple went to school together at Sydney's Westfields Sports High, but didn't start dating until many years later, after Michael's engagement with Lara Worthington (nee Bingle) was broken off in 2010.
Last week, Michael said he and Kyly maintained a healthy relationship since their separation and they were regularly in contact.
"Kyly and I have said it from day one - we have such a great friendship, and the fact we can do that for our daughter, I don't think there'd be a husband and a wife, or an ex-husband and wife that are not together, that wouldn't want that for their child," he told The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
"Kyly's such a natural parent, she's an amazing mum. For me, I'm learning as I go. I got 50 per cent custody of my daughter, so I love seeing her.
"Kyly and I are speaking nearly every day, because I'm asking for advice … even down to food. If Kyly's making her something when she's with her, I'm saying, 'Kyly, why does she love your lamb but she doesn't love mine?'
"I need the help as well … our friendship is so important for our daughter."
Clarke and Edwards, the founder of P.E. Nation, confirmed their relationship in June last year and regularly posted a string of happy snaps to their respective social media pages.
In December 2020, they held a lavish party on board a $15 million superyacht to celebrate Clarke being appointed an officer in the general division of the Order of Australia as part of the Queen's Birthday Honours List.
But all good things must come to an end, with the pair splitting in February.

Meanwhile, in October last year, Kyly sparked up a relationship with V8 Supercars driver James Courtney after the pair were spotted "kissing passionately" trackside at Bathurst.
However, their fling only lasted two months.
