In 2002, during the run of “Chicago” in Perth, Bassingthwaighte and some cast and crew members encountered an adventure when they got lost on their way to visit The Pinnacles, a limestone formation northwest of Perth. Their 4WD broke down, and they were eventually rescued by a Navy helicopter.

Nat Bass finds love with woman post-divorce

Beloved Australian entertainer Natalie Bassingthwaighte has recently shared her thoughts for the first time on her recent separation from her husband of 12 years and her newfound romantic involvement with a woman.

In an extensive and often deeply emotional interview with Stellar magazine and its podcast, Something To Talk About, Bassingthwaighte candidly discusses the significant life changes she has experienced lately, commencing with her recent separation from her second husband and longtime Rogue Traders bandmate, Cameron McGlinchey.

Rumors about the couple parting ways emerged in August, causing heightened media attention. While the 48-year-old artist remained silent initially, she now describes the media scrutiny of their separation as “challenging” and “overwhelming.”

She recalls receiving a phone call about the media’s awareness of their split, expressing the difficulty of protecting their private life while navigating the grieving process. Bassingthwaighte admits feeling terrified about the public interest, emphasizing her unpreparedness at the time. She describes the hardest part as receiving a call notifying her that the media was aware and seeking a comment, leading to a feeling of overwhelming pressure.

Bassingthwaighte emphasizes that she does not want the public to perceive her separation from McGlinchey as a failure, asserting that their marriage was successful and beautiful. Despite the split, she highlights their achievements together, the admiration and respect they still share, and their two incredible children. According to her, their relationship has evolved, but love and respect endure.

Additionally, Bassingthwaighte speaks warmly about her new romantic involvement with a woman, a person she finds beautiful and who brings joy to her heart. Despite her initial fear about publicly acknowledging the same-sex relationship, she sought advice from her ex-husband on how to navigate and share this aspect of her life with the world.

“I rang Cam and I was hysterical. And he said, ‘It’s OK. This is your truth and you now have to sit in it and stand in it and own it.’ So to have that support from him has been nothing short of beautiful, and I’m very grateful for it,” she says.

“Now I can speak from my own mouth, on my own truth, and that feels rewarding. I’m OK. Everything is OK, and everyone is OK. We’re in a good space. It feels liberating. But before? It’s terrifying and it’s debilitating because you’re waiting for someone to snap a picture of you and make it salacious. To live like that is … oh, it’s not fun. And I’ve been doing that for a little while now. So it’s nice to say it.”

Now, Bassingthwaighte and her ex are “co-parenting beautifully, and I’m proud of us for that.”
