Phoebe Burgess reveals she’s changing her name following her divorce from NRL star Sam Burgess

Phoebe Burgess has revealed she’s changing her name following her split from ex-husband Sam Burgess.

The 32-year-old former football WAG made the revelation when she responded to an Instagram follower, asking why she hasn’t changed her name from ‘Mrs’ to ‘Ms’ on social media.

‘Just curious: I get the desire to keep the same surname as your kids but have you thought about changing your Insta handle to MSphoebeburgess?’ the fan asked.

Moving on: On Thursday, Phoebe Burgess revealed she’s changing her name following her divorce from NRL star Sam Burgess

‘Just because your nobodies MRS, and you are a kick a** independent woman??? This post is meant with support and kindness.’

Phoebe responded: ‘Thank you for asking and thank you for your candour/ honesty and support.’

‘Legally, I am Ms everywhere – On my IG it says “please contact support to change username”. So, yes it’s a process which I am well and truly in.’

Phoebe shares her son Billy, two, and daughter Poppy, four, with her ex-husband, NRL star Sam Burgess, who she split with for the second time in October 2019, just months after they had rekindled their marriage.

Phoebe partly blamed their marriage breakdown on the NRL claiming the clubs did little to help her then-husband Sam Burgess.

‘He wasn’t looked after,’ Phoebe told The Weekend Australian.

‘He wasn’t protected in the right way, in the way that may have – not saved our marriage, but it might have led to a true rehabilitation, a true sense of responsibility, owning behaviour, wanting to change that behaviour.’

Phoebe said she tried to put on a brave face throughout the difficult times but revealed she was the victim of taunts and jeers while pregnant with her second child Billy and watching Sam play at Stadium Australia.

‘I was heckled by the crowd, drunk people asking me if I wanted to FaceTime, and asking me where my husband was and, you know, was it his baby? It was demeaning and humiliating,’ she said. 

Sam later admitted to infidelity, which occurred while he was away captaining England in the Rugby League World Cup, during a confessional on the latest season of the reality show, SAS Australia.

‘I don’t think I was the greatest husband at times. I embarrassed my wife. I had an affair with a girl, a woman in Melbourne. That’s true,’ he said tearfully. 

‘I was away on tour, and regretfully that happened. Which would have been… it would have been a tough place for Phoebe to be.’  

While pregnant with their son Billy in late 2018, Phoebe said she underwent multiple tests for sexually transmitted infections as a result of Sam’s cheating.

She claimed that during the pregnancy, she also suffered through Sam’s ‘substance- induced screaming rages’.
