Rabbitohs’ star Sam Burgess splits from wife Phoebe

Three weeks after welcoming their second child, Rabbitohs' Sam Burgess and wife Phoebe are understood to have split, three years after their lavish Bowral wedding.

It is understood the league player, 29, ended the couple's five-year relationship shortly before Christmas with Phoebe and the couple's two children absent from the Burgess family Christmas festivities held at Watsons Bay Hotel.

A source confirmed Phoebe, also 29, is currently holed-up in the couple's $3.8 million eastern suburbs home with her mother Sarah Hooke, pregnant sister Jemima Fairbanks and Jemima's husband Gene.

“Phoebe isn't leaving the house anytime soon – she’s inside weathering the storm,” an insider said.

Yesterday, Burgess was seen arriving at the property in his Bentley before leaving a short time later carrying full overnight bags and sans wedding ring.
