The footy commentator also donned a face mask and chatted on the phone. 

Jimmy’s outing comes after it emerged his former wife Nadia had likely attended an illegal gathering in Melbourne on the same day the exes finalised their divorce – meaning the event was possibly a celebration.

The Bartels, once considered a glamour couple of the AFL, separated in 2019 after five years of marriage.

The hosts of the Shameless podcast said in their latest episode that Nadia’s lockdown party appeared to coincide with the date of her divorce being settled.

‘She’s just gone through a highly publicised divorce – it was finalised last week, I’m pretty sure on the day that this video was taken,’ journalist Michelle Andrews said.

The latest developments come after the WAG, 36, and three other women were issued with Penalty Infringement Notices for breaching Covid lockdown last Thursday.

‘Four women have been issued with Penalty Infringement Notices following a gathering at a Richmond address in contravention of the Chief Health Officer’s restrictions,’ a Victoria Police spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia on Monday.

It comes after Nadia apologised for flouting Melbourne’s lockdown by hosting the illegal gathering at which she snorted a line of white powder. 

She was recorded snorting the powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate in a video mistakenly shared to Instagram by her friend and business partner Ellie Pearson.

Ellie had meant to send the video to her sister, but due to a cracked phone screen posted it on social media by accident and didn’t delete it until 10 minutes later.

Nadia wrote on Instagram on Friday evening: ‘Hi everyone, I have let you all down by my actions. I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future.

‘To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers trying to keep us all safe, I am embarrassed and remorseful.

‘I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust.’
