Emma Watkins’ ‘painful’ reason for leaving The Wiggles
Emma Watkins will say goodbye to the Wiggles at the end of this year, after the performer announced that she would hand the famous yellow skivvy to Tsehay Hawkins, one of four new cast members who recently joined the group.
Emma said she wanted to devote more time and energy to her other passions and complete her PhD, but some insiders believe she is leaving because she “just got too big for the group” and what to continue working with her ex-husband was “painful”.
“This clean break also gives him the opportunity to create his own brand, distinct from the Wiggles,” an insider reportedly said. Woman’s day magazine.
The source claimed it would help Emma put more distance between herself and ex-compatriot Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie.
Emma and Lachlan’s relationship and the separation that followed made headlines in August 2018, but the two maintained that they remained very close friends.
“She and Lachy have a great relationship with exes, but it’s hard to move on completely when you’re spending so much time with your ex,” the source said.
“She’s really glad he found someone else and became a dad, but of course it’s a bit painful as well.”
Emma announced her engagement to her bandmate Oliver Brian in April, three years after her marriage to Purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie ended.
