Bernard Tomic’s girlfriend Vanessa Sierra has confirmed the pair haven’t broken up despite posting a video of the tennis star smashing up her laptop during a tantrum.
On Sunday, the 26-year-old OnlyFans star said the pair are ‘still together but taking time apart’ after the blazing row, which took place in a penthouse apartment the pair were staying at in Croatia.
‘Bernard and I never broke up, we took a break from each other. Obviously the laptop breaking thing really affected me because not only did I lose a lot of my stuff but I lost $200,000 in a trade,’ she explained on Instagram.

‘Even though it was out first fight it was pretty massive so obviously I’m going to go and step away for a little bit to figure out what I want. That’s why I got my own place in Croatia.’
Vanessa continued: ‘I’m really patient in relationships. If something like this happens, I don’t think straight away if I want to be with someone or I don’t. I just take time for myself to think.’
She went on to say this is the ‘most intense relationship I’ve ever had’ and the most ‘I’ve ever been in love’.
‘I’ve never been this in love before so I’m not going to throw away a relationship like that in a heartbeat,’ she said.
‘There is a lot of stuff that hasn’t been posted on social media. There is other stuff in our lives that influence the shit that has happened so we are just being patient with everything.’

Earlier this month, Vanessa’s tennis pro boyfriend Bernard was filmed smashing up her $16,000 laptop during a tantrum.
Footage showed Tomic in the midst of a tantrum, while a visibly-worried Vanessa watched as he used his knees to break the MacBook in half.
Despite the mammoth argument, Vanessa claimed that the pair had not ended their relationship, but had just ‘stopped talking to each other’.
‘It was pretty childish of me to post the video but in my head I thought ”OK well I’ve got to make the money back somehow”,’ she said.

‘Since then Bernard has actually paid me back and sent me an apology and we’re finally talking again.
‘He has come to his senses and I also want to put it out there that Bernard is going through a lot of personal stuff at the moment, I’m being mindful of that so I’m trying not to create any more hate towards him which I already have created.’
Vanessa also confirmed then that she was planning to return home, but wasn’t sure where her relationship with Tomic stood.

She added that she was hit with a barrage of ‘hate’ online after revealing she’d spoken to the tennis star, adding she ‘doesn’t excuse’ his behaviour.
‘I haven’t made any decisions yet. I’ve simply said I’m talking to him and I’m not excusing any of the behaviour,’ she said.
‘I’m here to make my own decisions, I’m giving him a chance to explain himself and talk to me and I think that’s fair enough so I’d appreciate a little bit of kindness in the messages.’
‘I’m in my hotel and he’s in his.’

After footage of Tomic snapping the laptop surfaced, he issued a bizarre public apology.
‘Shouldn’t have broken her stuff I don’t know what came over me,’ he wrote on his Instagram story alongside a photo of himself and Vanessa.
‘My ego too big but I’m going to drop it for you. So sorry wife. Please let’s make things right. Love you.’
Police in Split, a coastal tourist town in Croatia, have since confirmed they are investigating the incident.
