In a passionate Instagram postLaura May Gibbs set the record straight on the 52-year-old’s suggestions The mentalist The star ended their relationship because she attended a protest against the anti-vaccine warrant.
The sportswear designer, 36, said the rumor was a “false story” about their secret split, saying it was “just not true”.
“To the gossip columnists, who have slandered my name on their platforms and used a false narrative around the relationship I’ve been in this year – that’s just not true,” she wrote.
“I never talk about my private life, but I will say this: the friendship and respect I share with this person runs too deep for media noise to have any real impact on our lives.”
Gibbs also defended his presence at the vaccine warrant protests on the NSW-Queensland border last week.
“I care about these people. I care about my staff and my community, without divisions or prejudices,” she wrote in her article. “Regardless of our differences, we are going through this time together. Decisions made by those in power affect us all, including our children and their future freedoms.
The Byron Bay creator was first linked with the Hollywood star in March this year when they were seen together looking beloved at a local cafe.
The exit came just two months after Baker publicly announced his split from Australian actress Rebecca Rigg. The couple had been together for 29 years, married for 23 years.
