Jackie O finally speaks out about 'boy toy' dating rumours

Jackie O has addressed the rumours she's dating 29-year-old male model Jack Tyerman.

Radio host Jackie O, 48, created a stir earlier this month when she was snapped looking cosy with younger man, Jack Tyerman.

The Kyle & Jackie O host had previously hinted at the Logies that there was a new man in her life and was later papped at her Eastern Suburbs home sharing a wine with 29-year-old Jack, a male model and construction worker.

Jackie kept pretty quiet on the rumours when the news first broke, but has now finally addressed them, saying she was 'to blame' for the rumours in the first place.

"No, Jack is not my boyfriend," she told her co-host Kyle Sandilands. "We're not in a relationship, he is not my boy toy."

She stressed she did not meet the male model on a dating app.

"Jack is a good friend of mine. I know him through a friend of ours. I didn't meet him on a dating app or anything like that," she said.

Jackie then spoke about telling outlets she was dating while on the red carpet at the Logies.

"In my mind, I'm dating and I've been on a few dates, so I said 'maybe' [I'm dating], but I probably should have said, 'Maybe, we'll see what happens,'" she said.


Jackie's social media interactions hinted towards a possible romance with Jack, after she had commented and liked recent posts, as well as following his sister's account.

Jackie split from her partner Lee Henderson in 2018 after 15 years together. She's previously talked in interviews about being on dating apps, saying that she had downloaded Hinge once she found herself ready to date again.
