Jodi Gordon, the unlucky-in-love actress, will face the courts after police issued an interim apprehended domestic violence order against her.
Since November 2020, the 37-year-old star of Home and Away and Neighbours has been in a ‘tumultuous on-off relationship’ with 31-year-old financier Sebastian Blackler.
On Sunday, the two were issued AVOs on behalf of one another, warning them not to stalk, harass, or threaten one another.
Friends have tried to shield Blackler and Gordon from the pain of the ‘toxic’ relationship, but they now fear they will have to let it ‘run its course naturally.’
Gordon has had a long history of high-profile romances, the most recent of which was her tumultuous connection with Blackler.
At the age of 21, she had her first heartbreak when her boyfriend at the time, Christopher Burkhardt, died of leukaemia at the age of 23. They had been sweethearts since high school.
Gordon fell in love with Ryan Stokes, the son of millionaire businessman Kerry Stokes, of Channel Seven in 2007.
Gordon’s fame was increasing at the moment, thanks to her successful stint on Home and Away, for which she won the 2006 Logie Award for Most Popular New Female Talent.
On red carpets, the couple appeared to be the image of contentment after dating for roughly two years. They got married in 2009.
Gordon was involved in a weird drug controversy with bikie associate and Kings Cross personality Mark Judge, and the relationship ended soon after.
Gordon dialled 911 from Judge’s Bellevue Hill house, believing armed intruders had broken in and were posing a threat to her life.
Gordon and Judge were discovered huddled together in the corner of a bedroom in the property during an emergency operation.
Police combed through CCTV footage and found no evidence of intruders. Gordon allegedly afterwards admitted to authorities that he had ingested cocaine earlier in the night.
Gordon’s new fiancé had called Kings Cross police to report her missing after a night out, it was later revealed.
Within weeks of the incident, they secretly split up.
Gordon went on to date rugby league player Braith Anasta after her breakup with Stokes.
By July of that year, the couple had been engaged. In October of the following year, they married in Bali.
Gordon and Anasta announced they were expecting their first child together just ten months after the wedding.
The couple divorced in 2015, but Aleeia, their eight-year-old daughter, continues to live with them.
Gordon identified ‘differing priorities’ as the key reason for their breakup a year later.
‘There were a lot of people astonished, but not us or our immediate family,’ she explained.
Jodi said she was seeing British financier Sebastian Blackler after a number of past short-lived relationships.
Gordon and Blackler made headlines for all the wrong reasons just days after officially revealing their relationship when police issued an apprehended violence order for the soap star’s safety.
After responding to complaints of a disturbance between the two at Gordon’s Double Bay house in November 2020, police filed for the AVO.
Blackler was prohibited from attacking, threatening, stalking, harassing, or intimidating Gordon under the AVO.
When Blackler appeared in Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court on December 9 of that year, he agreed to a one-year term without admitting any wrongdoing.
Despite this, the couple appeared to be in love as they walked out of court that same day.
It’s been reported that the couple split up in May 2021, but resumed their romance in February 2022.
Police issued AVOs against both Blackler and Gordon on Sunday in order to protect them from each other.
Gordon’s order further states that she must not be in Blackler’s company for at least 12 hours after using alcohol or illegal drugs.
On April 21, the two will appear in Windsor Local Court.
Gordon dated entrepreneur Aidan Walsh for a short time before rekindling her love with Blackler.
During a romantic vacation in the Hunter Valley in June 2021, the Neighbours star was first seen packing on the PDA with Walsh.
The couple made their red carpet debut at a GQ event in Sydney a week later.
Following that, the couple flew to Western Australia for what appeared to be their second romantic getaway in as many weeks.
However, in December 2021, they silently unfollowed each other on social media and deleted all traces of each other from the internet.
While neither has spoken about their romance, it is believed they are no longer in touch.
Gordon had a brief romance with Warren Ginsberg, an eastern suburbs socialite and real estate agent, in 2016.
The couple dated for about four months before calling it quits due to ‘too much friction,’ according to sources.
In April 2017, a source told Woman’s Day, ‘The relationship is over.’
‘Warren has revealed to his buddies that he and Jodi are no longer dating. They looked good on each other’s arms, but there was a lot of friction,’ they added.
Ginsberg was arrested in August 2021 as part of a drug crackdown by the police. He was charged with cocaine possession and appeared in Waverley Local Court before a magistrate.
On September 14, he pled guilty to narcotics possession and was fined $500.
He had been accused with narcotics possession three times since 2007, but this was the first time he had been convicted of the crime.
Ginsberg was reportedly planning to appeal his conviction.
