Natalie Bassingthwaighte, the renowned Australian singer and actress, has recently announced her new relationship with a woman following her separation from her husband of 13 years, Cameron McGlinchey. The 47-year-old Rogue Traders singer expressed her happiness and revealed that her new partner "makes my heart smile."
In an interview on the Stellar Podcast, Bassingthwaighte disclosed that Cameron was already aware of her new relationship before she made the public announcement. She described his response as supportive, sharing his advice to own and embrace her truth.
Natalie Bassingthwaighte expressed her gratitude for Cameron's understanding and support during this transitional phase of her life. She also explained that she contacted him in a state of concern when media interest began to escalate about their separation, fearing an unwanted disclosure.
The couple reportedly quietly finalized their divorce in August. They had been co-parenting their two children, Harper and Hendrix, amicably after parting ways late last year. The family had relocated from Melbourne to Byron Bay in 2020, with Natalie recently selling her Melbourne home to establish a new life in the coastal town.
Although the specifics of their property sale remain undisclosed, the couple had initially purchased the Melbourne house for over $2.5 million at an auction a decade ago. Despite the separation, Natalie Bassingthwaighte remains positive about her future and feels empowered to speak her own truth.
Natalie's honesty and openness regarding her new relationship and the support she received from her ex-husband demonstrate a refreshing approach to handling personal matters in the public eye. As she embarks on this fresh chapter of her life, she aims to embrace her truth and find contentment in her newfound happiness.
