Karl Stefanovic reveals incident with a creepy fan in a public bathroom


Karl Stefanovic has opened up about his celebrity and recalled the horrific moment a creepy fan took a ‘d**k pic’ of him while in a bathroom at a venue on the Gold Coast. 

The Today show host, 47, appeared on Gus Worland’s Not an Overnight Success podcast and said that while he doesn’t want to complain about being a high-profile TV personality, there are some downsides to fame – including this one. 

Karl said that he was going to the bathroom during a night out, when a member of the public recognised him and tried to snap a picture of him with his pants down without him knowing.

Karl said that afterwards, he suffered weeks of paranoia fearing that a ‘d**k pic’ would soon surface in the media, admitting: ‘My ability to have a grandiose time out and about is limited’.

‘I have been very disappointed with some of the stuff the public has done, like in the mens’ toilets, [someone] taking shots of my willy… and I’m completely oblivious to it,’ Karl said. 

Despite the intrusive incident Karl managed to laugh it off, saying he ‘wasn’t at his best’ for the photo when it was taken.

He added that straight after the incident took place, when another patron told him about the snap, he immediately asked a police officer outside the venue to try and help him find the creepy man. 

Karl said he tried to describe the man who took the shot of him and said it was useless as almost every patron on the Gold Coast looked the same, and was wearing a singlet with an arm full of tattoos. 

‘I went, “Mr Police officer, this guy got a shot of my d**k,” Karl said with a chuckle, saying the police officer had little to go off.

‘I had this paranoia for weeks that Karl’s little d**k pic would come out… but I guess he never got the shot,’ Karl added. 

Karl also spoke about the idea of fame and celebrity and said while he once had ‘tremendous anxiety’ about his life being played out in tabloids and constant attention from the press, he realises how lucky he is with his career. 

‘No one is going to feel sorry for you… you have a camera in your face at the airport? Boo hoo! It can be intrusive to have a camera on you… although they aren’t there very much anymore but it produces anxiety, tremendous anxiety but you can’t let that on with the public,’ Karl said.

‘It’s like dude, first world problems. The benefits out way the negatives and I’m the luckiest guy in the world and if you go outside and believe it, you won’t have a problem with the cameras.’

Karl, who began his career as a cadet reporter for WIN Television in Cairns and Rockhampton, has since gone on to become one of Australia’s biggest TV personalities. 

He began working for Nine in 2000 as a news presenter and started working at the Today show back in 2005. 

Despite being dumped from the Today show back in 2018 amid turmoil in his personal life, he now co-hosts Today with Ally Langdon.
