(fashion) For weeks, Nadia and Jimmy Bartel's marriage split has dominated headlines.
But fresh claims show a different side to the couple's separation, with New Idea reporting that Jimmy and his wife grew apart due to her lofty social ambitions.
According to the magazine, the 34-year-old fashion blogger was determined to maintain her status as a 'WAG socialite', but this conflicted with Jimmy's values.

Nadia reportedly wanted to project an image of herself and Jimmy, 35, as a 'power couple', while her husband preferred a more laid-back lifestyle.
A source told the publication: 'She just became this full-on socialite and in many ways that's what pushed them apart... [Jimmy] never wanted any of that.
'Jimmy came from a really tough upbringing. He just wanted a happy, grounded home.'
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Nadia Bartel for comment.
