Michael Clarke, Karl Stefanovic and Jade Yarbrough had no idea the Noosa fight was being filmed

It’s the stunning footage that has turned the lives of his high-profile subjects upside down.

And according to a source close to the group at the center of the scandal, both Michael Clarke and his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough and Karl Stefanovic and his wife Jasmine had no idea their blazing row outside a Noosa restaurant was being filmed by a random bystander 10. January.

The footage was obtained by The Daily Telegraph and it was not until a week later that Clarke was made aware of the video by a reporter from the publication.

According to a source close to the retired cricketer, the news “had exploded like a bomb” as the famous group began to realize the seriousness of what was about to be broadcast publicly.

The now infamous footage shows Clarke and Yarbrough – as well as Stefanovic – after dinner at Noosa Waterfront restaurant in Noosaville.

The fight was sparked by Yarbrough accusing Clarke of cheating with ex Pip Edwards.

In the clip, a shirtless Clarke was yelled at and punched by his angry girlfriend while others tried to defuse the commotion.

Anthony Bell, whose $10 million home in Noosa served as the group’s base during the holidays, is also seen calmly trying to calm the situation.

It is understood that Clarke, Yarbrough and the Stefanovics returned to Sydney in the days that followed and a full week passed quietly before Clarke was told the incident was being taped shortly before it was made public on January 18.

“It was like a bomb went off… they all had to relive it,” said a friend close to the tight-knit group.

“Michael was devastated.

“His first thought was his family. And then the families of everyone else involved.

“It wasn’t just about him. This was about parents, children, partners, everything.”

Clarke was contacted for comment.

Clarke is understood to have alerted Jade and the Stefanovics that their violent showdown – which also included plenty of swearing – had been filmed by a viewer who later sold the footage for an alleged $10,000.

“They don’t know who it was … they have no idea,” the insider said.

“Everyone had actually started to move on. And then the video comes out and it (must) be relived.’

Clarke risks losing sponsors after the scuffle as the Sydney Morning Herald’s coverage of the incident has already cost him a deal with a skincare brand.

A handful of other deals are said to be “in limbo” as well, including his role as commentator for Australia’s test tour of India.

However, he will keep his radio job at Sky Sports Breakfast, station owner TabCorp confirmed to AAP on Thursday. He is expected to address the Stoush when he returns to the airwaves on Monday.

The vision shows a shirtless Clarke being verbally abused by his angry girlfriend, who yells at him and then slaps him in the face.

“You shagged her on December 17th…You shagged her you damn dog,” Jade yells.

Clarke replies, ‘Baby you’re wrong, you’re wrong.’

Dozens of people – including some children – can witness the incident.

At one point, a woman points out to the quarreling group that “there are kids over there” as they shout at each other.

Clarke, who tore his hamstring in the melee, told The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday night: “I take full responsibility for this altercation and I am appalled by my actions.”

The man who shot the footage later said he knew something dramatic was about to happen when he spotted Clarke and Stefanovic engaged in a heated exchange.

“We were in the park and we saw something erupt and lo and behold it was one of the most famous cricketers in the country and one of Australia’s most famous TV identities fighting each other,” the man told the publication.
