Former Test cricketer Stuart MacGill has accepted the terms of an apprehended violence order for his girlfriend, Julie Singleton, without accepting any fault on his behalf.
After a Boxing Day complaint, police sought the order for Ms Singleton, 50, a lawyer who was the fifth wife of advertising baron John Singleton.
Neither Ms Singleton nor MacGill appeared in Waverley Local Court in Sydney's east on Thursday morning. But barrister Callan O'Neill indicated MacGill would consent to the 12-month order, which forbids him from coming within 100 metres of Ms Singleton's Vaucluse home or her office.
The right-arm leg-spin bowler, who appeared for Australia in 44 Tests before retiring in 2008, must not approach or contact his girlfriend or four of her family members in any way, except through a lawyer.
MacGill separated from his wife, journalist Rachel Friend, in 2014. He and Ms Singleton made their first public appearance the same year. She and her businessman husband had divorced in 2007 after a decade together.
MacGill's case was heard in the same morning session of Waverley Local Court in which yachtsman and chief executive Anthony Bell accepted the terms of an interim AVO sought by his wife, Kelly Landry, also without admitting fault.
Through his lawyer, Chris Murphy, Mr Bell indicated he never wanted to see his wife again and implied she had a drinking problem.
