Police are investigating Karl Stefanovic after a male waiter claimed he was assaulted by the Today show presenter at a cancer benefit.
The waiter allegedly was groped by Stefanovic, 48, during the Mercedes-Benz melanoma charity event in Newstead, Brisbane, on August 20 evening, according to the Courier Mail.
The host of the six-hour event, Stefanovic, was accompanied by his wife, Jasmine Yarbrough.
Police are investigating Karl Stefanovic for an alleged assault at a Brisbane fundraiser. He is spotted at the event with his wife Jasmine Yarbrough last month.
The media figure posted a touching message to melanoma patient Gina (pictured next to each other at the event)
The representative stated, “As investigations are underway, it would be improper to speak further.”
It is believed that the parties have addressed the issue in secret to seek a resolution.
The Six Hour Project attracted approximately 350 attendees and raised $290,000 for melanoma research.
Last month, Stefanovic and his wife posted images of themselves in formal clothes while mingling with attendees at the benefit on Instagram.
In one photograph, the media celebrity appeared alongside Gina Savage, a melanoma patient and event organizer.
Stefanovic is spotted at Sydney Airport upon his return from England, where he covered the funeral of the Queen.
He put in the caption, “Gina, courage, resiliency, and beauty.”
“We have just raised the roof for you, your fights, your charity, and everyone else battling melanoma.”
The proceeds of the fundraiser, which aimed to enhance cancer awareness, detection, and treatment, were donated to The Mater Foundation and Melanoma Institute of Australia.
Melanoma claims the life of one Australian every six hours, according to the fundraising website.
The Six Hour Project is determined to alter this tragic statistic.
The television host was dispatched to London on September 13 to cover the death and funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
Channel Nine has been approached by Daily Mail Australia for comment.
