Earlier this week Karl Stefanovic suddenly vanished from the set of The Today Show, this is why.

We were all a little confused when Karl Stefanovic disappeared from the set of The Today Show earlier this week, but we now know the reason for his absence.

Apparently, it was all a ploy to dodge the paparazzi so he could indulge in yet another romantic getaway with girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, Karl and Jasmine are in Bora Bora on James Packer’s mega-yacht with a small group enjoying the sun for a few days. 

Only last month Karl took time off work to spend two weeks in Hawaii with his new love, and this time he was able to take off without the paps knowing.

Karl boarded a 9:40am flight to Auckland and then took another two flights to Bora Bora, all without any annoying photographers following him around.

Yarbrough arrived a few days earlier, taking to social media to hint at her location with a poolside snap alongside the caption, “Nope… not coming home.”

The pair will reportedly return home next Wednesday, with Karl expected to be back on the Today Show set on Thursday morning.
