Simon Baker dumped his crazy anti-vaxxer girlfriend a few months ago


In January of this year, we learned that Simon Baker and his wife Rebecca Rigg had separated after 29 years of marriage. I was shocked by both the length of their marriage and the fact that they were splitting. In the months since then, we haven’t heard much about Simon, even though he’s a legit star in his home country (Australia) and here in America, where he’s starred on several network TV shows and been in many Hollywood movies. As it turns out, he quickly rebounded with a 30-something activewear designer named Laura May Gibbs. He was with her for a big chunk of 2021, and they were last seen together in August. And now Simon wants everyone to know that they’ve broken up. The split has a modern flavor, because I think he dumped her because she’s an anti-vaxx nutjob.

Simon Baker has split from his activewear designer girlfriend Laura May Gibbs. A spokesperson for The Mentalist actor, 52, confirmed the news on Tuesday, telling Daily Mail Australia that he and Laura, 36, quietly parted ways several months ago. The couple were last pictured together in August, laughing and joking during a trip to the beach in Byron Bay.

Laura made headlines in October after her activewear brand Nagnata announced on Instagram it would not re-open its Byron Bay store until unvaccinated customers were legally allowed to shop there. Posting to its official page at the time, Nagnata uploaded a photo of three models of different ethnicities, alongside a declaration that the brand would ‘reopen when ALL are welcome without fear of judgement’. The lengthy caption spoke about the importance of ‘inclusivity’ and opposing ‘discrimination’ when it comes to the Covid-19 vaccine.

On Sunday, the designer attended a rally at the NSW-Queensland border protesting vaccine mandates. The demonstration was part of a series of rallies across the country against mandatory Covid jabs for certain industries and occupations. Laura made sure to post an Instagram photo of herself looking glamorous as she stood in the heaving crowd, writing: ‘I’m already receiving messages from sharing these stories from people that have lost jobs, hang in there, you’re not alone.’

I think Simon Baker is a hot piece and I want to believe that he’s smart too, smart enough to dump a woman for being this kind of ignorant, deranged anti-vaxxer. It’s not only bad for his image, it’s just bad for humanity. It’s a reminder that America isn’t the only country with these kinds of whackjobs either – there are Europeans “protesting” vaccine mandates, there are crazy Aussies like Laura too. Insane. Anyway, Simon Baker is single! Only vaccinated candidates need to apply (hopefully).

    Maybe girlfriend is free to date Info Rademacher

  3. WithTheAmerican says:

    Yes delicious. I am trying so hard not to get angry when these absolute losers act like they’re oppressed.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ WithTheAmerican, the utter stupidity of these nut jobs using this rallying cry that was intended for people that were actually being discriminated against solely for their skin color, sexual orientation or other suppression tactics of racists white men and women, is an insult not only to those who have suffered and continue to suffer, but that their “cause” should be categorized as the same suffering that those who suffered their entire lives. From owning a home, gaining a loan, pay rates and living each and every day fearful of losing their lives.
      They can ALL go to hell!! FFS!!! 🤬

  4. Natters says:

    You would think after dating this nut job he would go running back to his ex and the mother of his children. He always has the nicest things to say about her, you would think he would have realized how good he had it. Lol!

  5. BethAnne says:

    It would be interesting to look at the stats of other countries. I am sure there are European ones that are lower than the US, and the demonstrations in Italy have been super intense.

  6. MissMarirose says:

    Yeah, if you’re pro-vax & 20-30 years younger than him, he’s available!

  7. lucy2 says:

    I’m so disgusted by her comparing this to actual discrimination. Get your damn vaccine.

    • Yup, Me says:

      Came through to say just that. She was comparing vaccination to racism and she is contemptible.

    • Cee says:

      Some influencers are comparing it to SEGGREGATION!
      Like being born anything but White is the same as having the autonomy to choose not to vaccinate yourself. As if Black people had a choice in being seggregated, discriminated and killed. The sheer stupidity and caucasity.

  8. Sequinedheart says:

    As an Aussie here in the USA, I can confirm there are PLENTY of wackjob anti accents in Australia. And they also have very strong opinions on America / American politics of which they know little about.
    Sadly, it makes them sound very uninformed and dare I say stupid.

  9. molly says:

    He’s sexy AF in Devil Wears Prada, and I don’t care what anyone says.

  10. Cee says:

    Anti-vaxxers, and Convid-19 anti-vaxxers especifically, are everywhere too.
    My SIL will not get vaccinated nor will her boyfriend. She’s very accomplished academically and professionally, Head Nurse for one of the world’s most acclaimed hospitals especialysed in NEO and she won’t get the vaccine. She demands more scientific data. The boyfriend is a personal trainer who believes in superfoods.

    So you can be very smart and exceptionally stupid at the same time.

    • North of Boston says:

      It seems often like a toxic combination of fear, self-centeredness, and giant egos :

      THEY know better than epidemiologists and other trained scientists, only THEY and the ‘influencers’ THEY’VE chosen have the real scoop and THEY are one of the precious few who are ‘smarter than the average bear’ as opposed to us peon sheeple. And adding fear, laziness, self-centeredness to that ego let’s them stick their heads in the sand about a deadly disease and their responsibility… as part of a society, community… to do their part to keep everyone safe.

      Meanwhile they are just giant selfish dangerous losers.

  11. Kate says:

    What a weird take to keep your small business closed until vaccine mandates are lifted. It’s not like that’s adding pressure to any politician. What do they care if your leggings store stays closed? Super gross to frame it as being similar to race, ethnicity, body shape, and other physical characteristics that people cannot change. God some people are dumb.

    • Marietta2381 says:

      LOL to the “What do they care if your leggings store stays closed?”

      And yes, some people are sooo dumb.

  12. Laura Weldon says:

    She’s 30-something? I’ll buy that if “something” is 20 years.

  13. Andrea says:

    I am 40 Simon, vaxxed, and ready for some fun. Lol

  14. BothSidesNow says:

    I wonder what the IG post was from and who it referenced as it has already been removed…..🤷🏻‍♀️

  15. Bobbie says:

    “As it turns out, he quickly rebounded with a 30-something”
    Do any of them ever do anything different?

  16. jferber says:

    I don’t know who he is, but I want him anyway.

  17. Cg2495 says:

    He is so handsome! I remember dating someone who looked like him years ago… should had picked him and married him instead of my soon to be ex.

    Simón I am vaccinated 😆!
