Kyle Sandilands' rumoured relationship with his personal assistant, Tegan Kynaston, has apparently been going on 'for months'.
At least that's according to friends of the radio star, who told The Daily Telegraph that Kyle wanted to keep his new romance 'under wraps' until after he'd publicly confirmed his break-up with longtime girlfriend Imogen Anthony.
Kyle's manager, Bruno Bouchet, declined to comment about the latest claims but has previously described the rumours surrounding Tegan and his client as 'garbage'.

Kyle himself briefly addressed the allegations on Tuesday, describing them on his KIIS FM breakfast show as false and 'hurtful' to everybody involved.
It comes after Kyle flew to Los Angeles over the weekend accompanied by Tegan.
The 48-year-old was pictured arriving at LAX on Sunday morning, with a source telling Daily Mail Australia he was joined by Tegan on the flight, but the pair left the terminal separately.

Kyle, who is broadcasting live from a home studio in LA this week, looked rather downcast after landing and raced outside for a cigarette following the 16-hour flight from Sydney.
Tegan was nowhere to be seen, and appeared to be keeping her distance from Kyle.
Meanwhile, the shock jock didn't look happy as he noticed paparazzi taking photos of him while he waited for his rental car.

As Kyle landed in Los Angeles, Woman's Day hit newsstands in Australia with a bombshell report claiming that he and Tegan, 33, are 'in a relationship'.
The Daily Telegraph published similar claims just hours later. Both articles included quotes by anonymous sources.
However, Kyle's manager furiously denied the allegations, describing them as 'garbage', 'hurtful' and 'fabricated'.

'It's utterly ridiculous that Woman's Day would fabricate this report,' said Mr Bouchet.
'By now, I doubt most Australians are gullible enough to believe anything Woman's Day publishes, especially stories based on unnamed "insiders". As well as the claims being wrong, they're also incredibly hurtful to everyone involved.
'If you'd like further proof that this story is garbage - which is highly insulting to garbage - I'd point out that Woman's Day didn't reach out to us for comment. I presume this is because they knew they were making things up and didn't want to the truth to contradict them.'

Kyle last returned from LA on October 7, after spending several weeks there with Tegan amid the controversy surrounding his Virgin Mary 'joke'. During that trip, the pair were pictured together having breakfast at a café in West Hollywood.
Meanwhile, New Idea reported on Monday that Kyle and Imogen's split was due to his 'reluctance to make a commitment' to his girlfriend of eight years.
'Imogen has desperately wanted to get married and have kids for quite some time now, but unfortunately Kyle wasn't ready,' a source told the publication.
On September 18, Kyle offended thousands of listeners - and attracted 150 formal complaints to media watchdog ACMA - by saying the Virgin Mary wasn't actually a virgin at all.
'I thought Mary was his [Jesus Christ's] girlfriend but apparently it was the mother,' he said.
'And the mother lied obviously and told everyone, "Nah I got pregnant by a magical ghost." Bulls**t.
'Someone chock-a-blocked her behind the camel shed... You might believe everything that's written down 2,000 years ago to be absolutely accurate and good on you, you're dumb. Dumb as dog s**t.'
The segment went unnoticed at the time, but went viral days later when it was shared to KIIS FM's social media channels.
Kyle unexpectedly announced his split from Imogen, 28, live on The Kyle and Jackie O Show last Tuesday.
'A lot of people have been hitting us up on social media, a few phone calls, some media inquiries about my relationship status,' Kyle told listeners.
'We [Imogen and I] haven't been living with each other for quite a few months now. Unfortunately it's just run its course.'

On Friday, Imogen broke her silence on their split in an emotional video shared to Instagram from the former couple's $2.9million farm in the Southern Highlands.
'We have a lot to deal with separately,' Imogen said. 'It's probably been one of the hardest years of our lives, separately.
'I've got so much family stuff, and there's so much health stuff involved between us.
'We just kind of want to... get each other, get ourselves into the best form of ourselves we can be, without kind of just p**ing in each other's pockets.
'We still love each other very much, we speak every day. We still see each other, we deal with things
