It seems there is no love lost between Cassandra Thorburn and her former sister-in-law Sylvia Jeffreys.

On Friday, Cassandra shared a throwback photo from the 2015 Logie Awards – her last time attending the ceremony with her then-husband Karl Stefanovic before their separation in mid 2016.

But a closer examination of the image shows that Cassandra, 47, has conspicuously cropped out Sylvia, 33, from the left side of the photo.

It’s unclear if the cropping was a deliberate attempt to throw shade, but it was clearly done in such a manner to demonstrate that Sylvia was in the original photo. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Cassandra’s representatives at Channel 10 for comment and clarification.

Little is known about Cassandra’s relationship with Sylvia, who married Karl’s brother Peter Stefanovic in 2017, months after Cassandra and Karl’s marriage breakdown.

But in August last year, the mother-of-three claimed she was effectively estranged by Karl’s side of the family.

She told The Australian Women’s Weekly: ‘Last year, I declared that Karl really was dead to me, a man I no longer know, but the children still have their father.

‘The flip-side of that is I feel like we’re dead to his family and almost anyone from our old life.’

She added: ‘There has been practically no contact. I feel like we’ve been discarded and disposed of, replaced by a whole new line-up of starters.’

Meanwhile, Sylvia’s friendship with Karl’s second wife, shoe designer Jasmine Yarbrough, is understood to be very close indeed.

The two women, both glamorous blondes, describe themselves as ‘sisters’ and often pay gushing tributes to each other on Instagram.
