Journalist who exposed Joyce's affair speaks out

Barnaby Joyce faces monumental risk after baby news

Joyce's wife Natalie told media, "The situation is devastating, for my girls who are affected by the family breakdown and for me as a wife of 24 years who placed my own career on hold to support Barnaby through his political life".

News broke this week that Nationals leader and Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce's new partner, a former staffer in his office, was pregnant.

"I am not going to say therefore just because I failed I'm going to completely change my views and definition", he said.

"It's taken a long time to get that father-daughter rapport", she said in 2017.

Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce.

She added: 'Naturally we feel deceived and hurt by the actions of Barnaby and the staff member involved'.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the couple had moved in together and Mr Joyce was "madly in love" but the 50-year-old is concerned about the welfare of his daughters, who are in their late teens and early 20s.

LeBron James reportedly cursed at Cavaliers' Executives in team meeting
When he re-entered the game with 10:10 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Magic ran off 14 straight points to lead 108-92. James finished with just 11 points and didn't play in the fourth quarter as the Rockets were too far ahead.

The deputy prime minister has so far refused to comment on the alleged affair, and Sky News host Samantha Maiden said on Wednesday that Champion - a former News Corp journalist - had repeatedly denied the affair when asked by her former colleagues.

Defence industry minister Christopher Pyne told 5AA it was Australia was engaging in "Fleet Street" journalism.

Ms Joyce said she was particularly hurt after inviting Ms Campion into her home and her life throughout the months she was employed by her husband, only to have the media adviser strike up the relationship behind her back.

"That must be very traumatising to everyone, made much worse by being publicised on the front page of newspapers".

In an interview with Leigh Sales, Joyce defended his right to have a private life, and looked visibly uncomfortable as he was challenged on the issues surrounding his marriage breakdown and new relationship.

The appointment of the ex-Netherlands global was announced by the country's football association (KNVB) on Tuesday. We don't have the best players, but that does not mean you can not have the best team".

Who is Barnaby Joyce's ex-wife?

I think he's a very poor Deputy Prime Minister. But my criticisms of him are of his job.

"Frankly, his personal situation is none of my business, and with respect it is none of anybody else's business".

Rumours of the affair and baby surfaced during the New England by-election in October but they have not been confirmed.

Joyce revealed in December that he had separated from his wife, saying at the time that he didn't pretend "to be any saint or anything like that".

"I'll acknowledge. I'm now separated so that's on the record".

Campion left Joyce's office in April a year ago and went to work for resources minister Matt Canavan.

When the citizenship fiasco entangled that minister, fellow National Matt Canavan, Ms Campion was moved again, before leaving the Government after an end of year reshuffle. Above all as this story circulates it's important to remember there are several innocent parties in all this, including Mr Joyce's children, who don't deserve to be the subject of water cooler gossip.
