FORMER Australian Test cricketer Stuart MacGill has agreed to a 12-month apprehended domestic violence order taken out by police on behalf of his girlfriend Julie Singleton.
The former leg spin bowler did not appear at Waverley Local Court today and was represented by his lawyer Callan O’Neill in relation to the temporary ADVO for Ms Singleton, a family lawyer and ex-wife of multi-millionaire advertising mogul John Singleton.
Ms Singleton was also not at Waverley Local Court, with Mr O’Neill saying she had gone to Melbourne.
Mr O’Neill said MacGill agreed to a 12-month ADVO without admitting any fault.
An interim ADVO had been taken out by police on behalf of Ms Singleton on Boxing Day after she made a complaint.
Those orders included Mr MacGill could not come within 100m of her Vaucluse home or place of work.
The interim order also prohibited Mr MacGill from approaching or contacting Ms Singleton, 50, or four of her family members, except through her lawyer.
The former cricketer and one-time TV presenter with his wine show Stuart MacGill Uncorked, on the Lifestyle Channel, split with his wife of 14 years Rachel Friend in 2014.
He met Ms Singleton the same year and the pair became quietly engaged in August of last year.
Ms Singleton was the sixth wife of John Singleton, who she was married to for 10 years and they had two daughters.
In 2014 Ms Singleton told The Sunday Telegraph “I had sworn off men then I stumbled across Stuart”.
“I didn’t even know who he was but we just started chatting away. I asked him what he did and I had no idea that he was an ex-cricketer or that he would be mobbed by fans of all ages wherever he went,” she said at the time.
MacGill played 44 Tests for Australia, taking 208 wickets.
