The insider sources hinted that her busy work schedule might have been behind their separation. By the mid of the year, their amicable separation had descended into a bitter feud as they battled for the control of their assets and properties. In July 2009, Davies was even involved in a brawl with her then-boyfriend Craig McPherson.
  2. Jim Wilson (2008-2009) – Towards the end of 2008, Kruger was rumored to be going out with newsreader Jim Wilson. However, their relationship didn’t even go half a year.

In January 2015, she gave birth to their first daughter, Maggie, who was born via IVF treatment. Before Maggie’s birth, she had to endure a couple of miscarriages. In January 2017, she sparked speculation that she had got married to Craig after she was spotted wearing a ring on her left-hand ring finger while returning from holidays.
