Former partner of Nick Xenophon Jenny Low says she never wanted to speak out about the political heavyweight after she claimed the way he treated her in private was “unacceptable”.

“I want to make it very clear I never wanted to speak out about this,” Ms Low told FIVEaa on Friday.

“I was contacted by The Australian a couple of days ago who had heard a rumour of the relationship. They essentially said to me that they were going to run with a story whether I said something or not. I was forced into a position to say something because I knew this would blow up.”

Ms Low then went on to say Xenophon “broke” her as a person.

“His family never knew about me,” she said.

“It’s just not normal to have a seven-year relationship and for your family not to know.

“He broke me as a person. I had nobody to turn to and nobody to talk to. That was such an awful experience.”

Mr Xenophon has rejected “any suggestion my relationship with Jenny was abusive or predatory in any way, manipulative or controlling”.
