Clarke’s post comes as Edwards was ironically caught liking a series of cryptic quotes about relationships on Instagram at the time of the break up.
The P.E Nation founder liked two quotes from meme account F**kology Official about having a ‘big heart’ and finally getting over someone.
‘You’ll be sad for a while and then you’ll stop giving a f**k and it’s the best feeling ever,’ one quote read.

The other read: ‘Someone once said: “You know you have a big heart when you feel bad for doing what is best for you.” And I felt that.’
Michael and Pip were last pictured together on December 5 when they shared a selfie from The Boathouse restaurant in Sydney’s Rose Bay.
The batsman was married to former model Kyly Clarke (née Boldy) from 2012 until 2019, but the couple didn’t announce their separation until February 2020.
