While Bassingthwaighte has found love again, she’s choosing to keep the identity of her new love private at this stage – an understandable move from someone who’s lived in the spotlight for so long.
After realising her true feelings for her new partner, Bassingthwaighte says she was “terrified” to share news of her new relationship with the world – and turned to her ex-husband for guidance.
He was nothing but supportive.
“I rang Cam and I was hysterical. And he said, ‘It’s okay. This is your truth and you now have to sit in it and stand in it and own it.’ So to have that support from him has been nothing short of beautiful, and I’m very grateful for it,” she said.
“Now I can speak from my own mouth, on my own truth, and that feels rewarding. I’m okay. Everything is okay, and everyone is okay. We’re in a good space. It feels liberating.”
