AceShowbiz - Toni Collette's estranged husband Dave Galafassi is apparently tired of hiding out. The 44-year-old musician has been spotted picking up his new lover, "integrative chiropractor" Shannon Egan, two days after the "Hereditary" star announced their divorce.
Early on Friday morning, December 9, Dave was snapped parking his white 4WD outside Shannon's apartment. The drummer, who was previously reported hiding out at the now-estranged couple's $3 million home in Birchgrove, was seen out without his wedding ring in photos obtained by Daily Mail.
A few moments later, the blonde beauty stepped out the front door. She wore black drawstring pants, a tight off-the-shoulder white top with a beige knit jumper draped over her shoulders. She also held a reusable paper shopping bag and a bulging black leather handbag.
The outing came just two days after Toni confirmed that she and her now-estranged husband are going their separate ways. In a joint statement posted on her Instagram account, they said that their decision to legally end their 20-year marriage came "after a substantial period of separation."
Despite the split, the former couple explained that their kids, 14-year-old daughter Sage Florence and 11-year-old son Arlo Robert, are "of paramount importance to us and we will continue to thrive as a family, albeit a different shape."
Prior to releasing the divorce announcement, Dave and Shannon were caught hugging and kissing in the water and on the sand in front of other beachgoers at Manly Beach. One witness said the couple was "all over each other." When asked about the surfaced PDA-filled beach photos, Dave said he "[doesn't] want to talk about it."
A few days before Dave's alleged cheating behavior was exposed, Toni posted a message about "eternal" love, which many fans found ironic. Along with an infamous photo of the Hasanly Lovers, two human skeletons sharing a kiss, the "Pieces of Her" actress wrote, "Love is eternal."
"These two were found in Iran in 1972. They've been kissing and in this embrace for approximately 2800 years. At first they were thought to be two men but since discovered that she (left) was about 22 when she died. And he (right) was early 30s," Toni explained, before concluding her post, "I love them [heart emoji]."
