Steve Jacobs and his ex-wife Rosie split after seven years of marriage at the end of last year, but now new reports suggest the former TODAY show weatherman has been hit with an AVO.
According to Daily Mail, Rosie put in an application for a "restraining ex parte temporary domestic protection order" at Port Vila Magistrates Court on January 21. The news site reports his estranged wife's request was granted immediately and remains in place.
A courthouse employee made an official statement to the publication which read: "The court received the application from the complainant and the application was assisted by the police."
"Police assisted Ms Jacobs in filing an application for a family protection order."
Steve is to stay up to 100 away from Rosie as per the legal agreement.
This comes after the two moved to Vanuatu mid-last year with their two children.
Friends of the pair revealed their union was in a rough place even before their move overseas.
"I think there were a few people who sensed something was up when they moved to Vanuatu," a friend said.
"The sea change was basically a last-ditch attempt to make things work, but it wasn't to be, unfortunately."
Steve and Rosie are yet to respond to these reports.
