A frosty reunion: Michelle Bridges dotes over her son Axel, four, while ex-partner Steve Willis looks stern as they move the last of their belongings out of their $6million home in Potts Point
Michelle Bridges and her ex-partner Steve ‘Commando’ Willis moved the last of their belongings out of the Sydney unit they once shared on Saturday.
Despite the emotional circumstances, Michelle, 49, smiled as she doted over her four-year-old son, Axel, while a team of removalists got to work.
Steve, 44, looked far more serious, however, and kept to himself as he loaded his possessions into a trailer attached to his car.

The former couple spoke to the removalists separately and weren’t outside together at the same time, making it easy for them to avoid each other.
After approximately 30 minutes, Steve and a male friend left together with his stuff safely packed in the trailer.
Michelle was far more upbeat than her ex, and spent most of the time with a happy smile on her face.

At one point, she crouched down to give little Axel a kiss and a cuddle.
In February, the Daily Telegraph reported that Michelle had sold the unit in 2019 for about $6million, after purchasing it for $2.9million in 2013.
She had originally bought the three-bedroom unit in Sydney’s east with ex-husband Bill Moore in 2013, before their split in early 2015.

After being charged, she released a statement claiming she was going through a ‘very difficult time’ following her split from Steve.

‘I would like to apologise to my family, friends and community for this gross error in judgment and the consequences of these actions will haunt me forever.’
