South Australian police have been forced to separate tennis player Nick Kyrgios and his model girlfriend, Chiara Passari, into various premises after a heated altercation during their hotel quarantine stay in Adelaide.
- SA police were called after an altercation between the couple was heated yesterday afternoon
- The couple was quarantined at a media hotel in Adelaide
- They had to be separated in different rooms for the rest of their stay
The couple isolates themselves at a media hotel in Adelaide after spending time abroad.
A spokesman for SA Police said officers were notified of a verbal altercation between two residents at a media hotel yesterday afternoon.
“An investigation was conducted that did not reveal any offenses and both parties will now spend the rest of their quarantine in separate rooms,” the spokesman said.
Passari later invited his Instagram followers to ask his questions online.
In response to a question asking, “What happened that fateful night at 161 Nightclub?”, Passari shared a photo that appears to show Kyrgio sleeping in a bed with the caption, “The girl naked in bed with him is not me by the way “.
She also posted what appeared to be screenshots of private messages sent from Kyrgio’s Instagram account to her account.
South Australia’s Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier declined to comment on the matter during a COVID-19 press conference this afternoon.
“You know, I could be considered a profiled person if I was in quarantine, and I’m not sure I should need the public to know all my entrances and exits.
“I have not had a briefing on it and I have no more to say.”
Kyrgio’s return to Australia follows his first round loss at the US Open in August and represented Team World at the Laver Cup in Boston last month.
The former world number 13 has previously said he intends to keep the rest of the year free.
“As long as I’m on the field, I’ll try to give my best, but I will not lie and say I plan to play for four or five more years on tour. It’s just not me,” he said in September.
“I’m going home. I’ve been traveling for four and a half months now. My mother is not feeling so well with her health. I want to go back and see her. I want to spend time with my family.”
ABC has contacted Kyrgios’ management and Tennis Australia for a comment.
