Patrick Keating Leaves Wife For Stylist
Patrick Keating, the only son of Prime Minister Paul Keating, is splitting from his wife Amber after a 10-year marriage.
This is not a simple break-up of a marriage, however. Keating has left his wife for Sydney stylist Penny Hunt. When pressed for a statement, Hunt said she’d prefer not to give any comment.
Hunt, however, has changed her relationship status on Facebook from ‘single’ to ‘in a relationship.’ She listed a ‘patricia’ as her partner in the social networking site.
Patrick is the son of Paul Keating, the 24th Prime Minister of the country. Patrick has three other sisters.
Patrick married his wife Amber in April 2002 at St. Mary’s Cathedral. The wedding created quite a stir because Keating was once touted as one of the most eligible bachelors in Australia. Amber was a model and property agent before meeting Keating.
The two were also regularly seen in many Sydney social functions. They were last seen publicly together in August 2011.
Penny Hunt, meanwhile, is a celebrity stylist in Sydney. She is currently a fashion and beauty editor at Mindfood, a lifestyle magazine and website.
This is not the first time that Keating made the rounds of media. In 2006, Queensland solicitor Robert Herd accused Keating of assaulting him.
Keating plead guilty to the change but magistrate Terrance Forbes did not enter a conviction. Keating was instead given a one-year good behavior bond.
Both Amber and Patrick declined to comment on the separation. The couple has two children.
