NRL star Braith Anasta and his fiancee Rachael Lee are still working things out despite speculation they have split.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the couple “have been trying to put things right and live separately for a few months” but have not yet officially split.
It comes after Braith confirmed he and Rachael are going through a “rough time”.
The former Roosters player, 40, posted a statement to his Instagram page on Wednesday, writing: “Like many couples we are going through a difficult time.”
He insisted the couple didn’t get separated but was “trying to work through this for us and more importantly for our beautiful family and amazing kids.”
“We have always been private and ask for privacy at this time,” he added.
The statement comes as Rachael was again spotted without her engagement ring while running errands in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
She was dressed in a black hoodie and sunglasses when she was seen getting out of her car.
Rachael, who shares four-year-old daughter Gigi with the NRL star, had given several hints that the couple had parted ways.
The personal trainer unfollowed her boyfriend on Instagram and removed any mention of his name in her account bio.
She has also been spotted several times without her engagement ring and spent most of her free time partying with her friends and sister Bridgette.
Braith and Rachael haven’t shared photos on Instagram for a while either.
While Footy star Braith is still following Rachael’s account, he hasn’t shared a photo of the couple together since December last year.
In August, Rachael was seen at a charity event for the Australian Skin Cancer Foundation with Braith wearing her ring.
However, the couple didn’t pose side by side for a photo, instead Rachael opted to share photos of herself posing arm in arm with other guests.
Rachael has become heavily involved with the charity after being diagnosed with melanoma in 2020.
Daily Mail Australia reached out to both Rachael and Braith for comment at the time.
The genetically blessed couple began dating in 2016 and welcomed their first child together, daughter Gigi, in January 2018.
Braith also has an eight-year-old daughter, Aleeia, with ex-wife Jodi Gordon, while Rachael has a son, Addison, 11, from a previous relationship.
Rachael and Braith got engaged in 2019 but had to put their wedding plans on hold due to the pandemic.
Back in January 2020, Rachael documented her trip to a bridal shop on Instagram.
At the time, she shared snaps of herself trying on a glamorous dress by Sydney-based designer J.Andreatta.
The bride-to-be also revealed that she and Braith are considering hosting their wedding on a “Greek island.”
