Jodi Gordon, 32, called time on their relationship in December 2015 after three years of marriage.
And on Thursday’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, ex-husband Braith Anasta, 35, appeared to make jokes about what the actress may have done with their engagement ring: ‘[She] probably hocked it, bought a few bags or something with it…Handbags.’
Just hours later, Jodi appeared to hit back at the sports star with a cryptic Instagram post that read in part: ‘You don’t stoop to their level.’
Referencing a Michelle Obama quote, Jodi’s Instagram post on Thursday read: ‘When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level.
‘No, our motto is, when they go low, we go high.’The Neighbours star captioned the post with the hash-tag #shinebrightlikeadiamond.The Instagram post comes just hours after ex-husband Braith Anasta admitted on the Kyle and Jackie O Show, that the engagement ring he used to propose was ‘a bad investment.’Appearing to make jokes about what Jodi may have done with her ‘very expensive’ piece of jewellery, Braith told co-hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson: ‘[She] probably hocked it, bought a few bags or something with it… Handbags.’
Jackie ‘O’ thought the former rugby league star was alluding to something more sinister before he said ‘handbags.’
‘Oh my God! I thought you meant something else,’ Jackie screamed while Kyle burst out laughing.
Jodi allegedly told police that cocaine had been consumed during an interview following a bizarre episode in 2009.
Braith – who is now dating personal trainer Rachael Lee – also told the KIIS FM hosts ‘I wish’ when asked if he got the ring back from his ex.
The ex-NRL star’s digs at Jodi came after he asked Kyle and Jackie for their suggestions about what he could buy his girlfriend Rachael for her upcoming 30th birthday.
‘Buy her an engagement ring,’ Kyle advised.
But the ex-sportsman shut down the suggestion, saying: ‘Don’t go there. Please don’t say that. I’m sweating already.’
‘Why not?’ Kyle asked, adding: ‘Are you divorced? … Did you get the ring back?’
Braith and Jodi announced their split at the end of 2015, stating that the would ‘remain best of friends’ for the sake of their three-year-old daughter Aleeia.
Last year, Braith revealed the pair’s relationship ‘wasn’t to be.’
‘Our break-up did not come out of the blue. We had both seen it coming for a while, we’d grown apart over the last little while and the reality was that it wasn’t working. We tried very hard but it wasn’t to be,’ he told The Daily Telegraph.
The former Wests Tigers player tied the knot with the New Zealand-Australian actress in October 2012 in a lavish Bali ceremony.
Prior to dating Braith, Jodi had a high-profile relationship with Channel Seven heir Ryan Stokes.
The former couple split almost immediately following her alleged drug scandal in 2009, when she was found by police cowering in the home of suspected Rebels bikie Mark Judge.
Officers responded to a call at Mark’s Bellevue Hill home after he reported that armed men were in his backyard and trying to scale his balcony.
CCTV footage reviewed by police found no sign of the men, only Jodi and Mark hiding in a bedroom.
Jodi, who rose to fame in Home And Away, allegedly told police that cocaine had been consumed that day.
Meanwhile, days before the episode, Ryan had called Kings Cross police to report his then-girlfriend missing after a night out.
