Karl Stefanovic says there will be details about him in Lisa Wilkinson’s book that ‘won’t read well’ as he admits their relationship wasn’t always smooth sailing

Karl Stefanovic has spoken out about his former Today show co-host Lisa Wilkinson’s new tell-all book.

Lisa, 61, is expected to address her sometimes icy relationship with Karl, 47, in her upcoming autobiography, It Wasn’t Meant to Be Like This, including the events leading up to her exit from Nine in 2017 over a reported gender pay gap dispute.

Karl told KIIS FM’s The Kyle and Jackie O show on Monday, there will be details about him in the book that ‘won’t read well’.

‘Lisa and I had 10 years together and in any kind of working relationship there are going to be ups and downs and those things are heightened with breakfast TV,’ he said.

‘I think there are probably things that happened over 10 years that aren’t going to read well… but I wish her all the best.’

Karl added: ‘It’s not easy, so I wish her all the very best and I think she has every right to go, say and do whatever she wants.’

During the interview, Karl also rubbished a report claiming he’s plotting a ‘revenge memoir’.

After Woman’s Day reported on Monday that Karl was planning to write his own book if Lisa paints him as a villain in hers, the TV presenter said this couldn’t be further from the truth.

‘I’ll never write a book because I’m too bloody lazy!’ the Nine personality told radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson when asked about the rumours.

Hours earlier, Woman’s Day had published a report claiming Karl had re-signed with his former manager Sharon Finnigan and was ‘in talks’ to secure a book deal with Hachette.

‘He will go warts and all if Lisa’s book is as racy as everyone is expecting and he’s ready with a back-up plan, and with Sharon in his corner, he’s giving himself his best chance,’ a source told the magazine.

It follows reports Lisa is ‘worried’ about how Karl might react to his portrayal in her upcoming autobiography, It Wasn’t Meant to Be Like This.

She has told friends she’s ‘concerned’ about how Karl will view the memoir, with suggestions he may not like how he is depicted, according to The Australian.

Lisa knows that Karl is a big part of the story and that he will be a drawcard for the book,’ one source told the newspaper.

‘She has also agonised over how he is portrayed, because he’s a complex character to get down in writing.’

Lisa apparently told friends the book had left her feeling ‘stressed’ and that she was worried about the media focusing on her chapters about Karl.
