A source close to the couple confirmed the news to Daily Mail Australia, saying: ‘The decision was mutual. They are two best friends who decided to separate as a couple at the beginning of the month, but continue their friendship.

Michael, 41, and Pip were last pictured together on December 5 when they shared a selfie from The Boathouse restaurant in Sydney’s Rose Bay.

“It’s the weekend,” the former Australian cricket captain wrote alongside the photo, which showed him getting closer to the PE Nation founder over a glass of rosé.

Pip shared the same photo on his own account and also posted several snaps of their meals, including fresh seafood and pasta.

A few days earlier, Pip had insisted the pair were still doing well as they attended the Moët & Chandon Effervescence event in Sydney.

Asked about Michael, she told Daily Mail Australia: “Yeah he’s not here tonight.” He’s at an event sponsored by a third party and that’s all I’m going to say about it.
