"This is what happens, (a) similar thing happened to me," Kyle said. "When you don't keep your eyes on your finances, people get a hold of your money."

"And if you don't keep an eye on it, other people start running around and thinking it's their money to spend," he added.

Kyle, who is in a relationship with model Imogen Anthony, went on to reveal that he knew who had stolen from his mate, Sophie, 37.

"I know exactly who it is, who has taken (it) upon themselves to think they can take what they like," he said, live on air. "Hers would have been into the hundreds of thousands for someone like her - mine ran into the millions. I was so spewing."
