According to the report by The Daily Telegraph, a personal email penned by Rosie Jacobs, the recently estranged wife of Australian TV reporter Steve Jacobs, has come to light revealing the travel reporter’s struggle to detox her life after the couple were welcomed into a “boozy expat community” in Vanuatu.

“Especially among our friends here in Vanuatu, plenty of my fellow mums … let’s face it, most people we know are dependent on alcohol,” says Rosie in the email, according to The Daily Telegraph.

“Steve and Rosie, who lived in Coogee before moving overseas, split late last year – though their separation only became public information last month. The pair had moved to Vanuatu in late 2016 for what friends say was a last-ditch attempt to mend their eight-year marriage, but it was too late.”

“In January, months after the pair separated, Rosie applied for a ‘restraining ex parte temporary domestic protection order’ at Port Vila Magistrates Court. It was granted immediately but no longer remains in place. New details of the relationship between the Today Show weatherman and wife Rosie have continued to emerge since the couple’s split became public.”
