Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic has apologised for a recent video shared on his girlfriend and Love Island Australia star Vanessa Sierra’s Instagram that appeared to depict him snapping her laptop in half with his knee. Y’know, after his absolutely fucked first response to the video going viral.
On Thursday, the 28-year-old German-born Australian sportsman shared a photo of him and Sierra by the beach during their current holiday in Croatia on his Instagram Story. Captioning the post, he responded to the distressing way he appeared to treat her in the video shared on Sierra’s socials last Monday.
“Shouldn’t have broken her stuff[,] I don’t know what came over me,” he wrote.
“My ego too big but I’m going to drop it for you. So sorry wife, please let’s make things right, love you.”
The post comes after The Herald Sun reports that Sierra called the Croatian police on Tomic and as an investigation into his behaviour is underway.
“We can confirm that police are investigating the case after we received a report from the woman who claimed her belongings had been destroyed,” police spokesman Jerko Kurevija told News Corp Australia.
In case you missed it, on Monday, Vanessa Sierra shared a video on TikTok and Instagram of Bernard Tomic breaking her laptop in the middle of what appeared to be a heated argument.
“Don’t mess with a tennis player’s ego,” she captioned the clip.
“$16,000 worth of damage, currently can’t work and half a mil in crypto is locked. I’ll give $100 for the first person who can guess what happened.”
When the video began to go viral, Bernard alleged that the Aussie reality TV star “leaked [their] tapes on her OnlyFans” but did not comment on the nature of his behaviour towards her presented in the clip.
This incident followed previous cryptic messages from Sierra alluding to the pair’s alleged split. But, when comedian Dave Hughes suggested that the two broke up on his radio show, Hughesy, Ed and Erin Catch Up, Sierra took to Instagram to call it “fake news”.
