Jodi Gordon’s friends are ‘shocked’ to hear about her AVO drama with boyfriend

Jodi Gordon’s friends are ‘shocked’ to hear her new boyfriend Sebastian Blackler has been slapped with an AVO by police to protect the Neighbours star… as he returns to court this week

Friends of former Neighbours star Jodi Gordon are reportedly ‘shocked’ to hear that her new boyfriend, Sebastian Blackler, faces court after being handed an AVO by police.

Police took out the interim AVO – allegedly to protect Jodi from Sebastian – following an incident at her eastern suburbs home on November 27, just one week after she went Instagram official with the British investment portfolio manager.

According to Woman’s Day, the news surprised those close to the actress, 35, as she had been ‘head over heels’ and ‘beaming with joy’ over her new relationship just days before the incident.

On the day of the incident, police were called to Jodi’s house in Double Bay shortly after midnight after reports of a disturbance.

‘Around 12.30am on Friday, November 27, 2020, officers were called to a unit at Wiston Gardens at Double Bay,’ a NSW Police spokesman said.

‘Following inquiries, officers from Eastern Suburbs suspended the investigation at the request of the victim. No further action is expected at this time.’ 

Police subsequently took out an interim AVO to prevent Sebastian, 30, from assaulting, threatening, stalking, harassing or intimidating Jodi.

He also must not approach her after drinking alcohol or taking illicit drugs.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Sebastian is alleged to have done any of those things, and police have laid no charges against him.

The incident came a week after Gordon had boasted about her fledgling relationship with Sebastian on Instagram, where she shared photographs of the couple cuddling up together.

‘When life gets wonderful…’ she captioned the post on November 21.

It is understood Jodi had been dating Blackler for several weeks before making their romance ‘Instagram official’.

Gordon portrayed English teacher Elly Conway on Neighbours from 2015 until January this year. She apparently quit the show due to exhaustion.
