Babylon star Margot Robbie and her father Doug are in a relationship, her uncle says

EXCLUSIVE: Margot Robbie’s uncle sets the record straight about Hollywood star’s alleged split with father: ‘They have an affair’

Owen Robbie, the brother of Margot’s father Doug Gold, a Coast-based realtor, said the pair had been in regular contact since Doug and Margot’s mother split when Margot was a young child. The Robbie family are ‘extremely proud of the actress’

Hollywood superstar Margot Robbie’s uncle has set the record straight about the actress’ relationship with her alleged father.

Wayne Robbie, who runs a major real estate firm on the Gold Coast, has denied recent reports that his brother, Doug, has never had a relationship with Margot and that they are on bad terms.

‘It never happened,’ Owen told Daily Mail Australia.

‘He must have had an affair with her. She is very proud of him.’

Wayne also confirmed that his brother – a retired sugarcane farmer and now property developer based in Airlie Beach – recently traveled to Sydney to see Margot while she was in town for the premiere of her new film Babylon.

It comes several years after reports first circulated that Wall Street star Wolff – born and raised on the Gold Coast by mother Sari Kessler – had cut off all contact with his father.

Speaking to The Sun UK in 2016, Margot admitted that her contact with her father was limited, adding ‘I’m not like him at all’.

At the time it was revealed that her younger brother Lachlan – or Lockie – was close to her father but two other siblings – Anya and Cameron – were said to share a similar relationship with Margot.

It is understood that Doug separated from Surrey when the children were young, leaving the single mother to raise the four children alone on the Gold Coast.

All four attended the exclusive private school Somerset College before Margot found fame and fortune in Hollywood where she is now on track to snag her second Academy Award nomination for Babylon.

Wayne said his niece’s career was a huge source of pride for the Robbie clan – most of whom live on the Gold Coast.

‘It’s Margot’s life and we’re not involved in commenting. But we’re very proud of Margot and what she’s achieved,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.

‘We have a bit of a policy about talking to the media – it’s something that’s really up to him if he wants to say anything publicly.

‘But we are proud of him. And Doug is exactly the same. He was there with the beginning of the movie and I know they have a relationship.

‘Doug is retired now he has been for a long time. But he’s been communicating with Margot and all the kids.’

Fiercely loyal to her mother, 32-year-old Margot regularly talks about their close relationship and said any of her children would grow up on the Gold Coast to be close to their grandmother.

The pair recently walked the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of Babylon where Sari – a retired physiotherapist – was compared by reporters to Margot’s sister thanks to her striking youthful looks.

Margot, who missed out on an Oscar nomination this year for her work in Babylon, famously gave her first big pay check back to the money she gave her mother to help build her career when she was starting out.

‘I spent it paying you back, mother. Don’t remember? By the end of 12th grade I was in a lot of debt,’ she said in a 2019 Vogue interview.

‘I had everything I owed you on a piece of paper, and I paid my debt every time I got a paycheck, but then I put the piece of paper away because it was satisfying to know that I had finally paid it off. Everyone is back.’
