Bob Irwin Distanced From Steve's Family As He Reportedly Wanted Australian Zoo "To Remain Conservation First, Tourist Attraction Second"

Date September 27, 2019

The Irwin family have been rocked by persistent rumors of a bitter falling out between Terri, Bindi and Robert and other relatives, as they are no longer speaking, since the Crocodile Hunter's death.

Steve’s older sister Joy Muscillo said that Steve’s wife Terri and their children, Robert and Bindi alienated themselves after his death.

Bitter fallout of Irwin family

The family took charge of the Australian Zoo. Steve's wife Terry and father Bob Irwin took care of the conservation activities. His sister Joy and her husband Frank oversaw the food court business. Yet, something seemed to go wrong at that time, as Joy intimated that in 2008 Terri "walked her husband out" of the zoo. The offended woman decided to leave herself with her adult children and her father Bob quit too.

The sister of Steve Irwin confessed:

“I keep away from all that. It’s just very sad…family stuff.”

Mrs Muscillo, who now runs a restaurant with her husband, leads a quiet life a world away from the glitz and glamour of her sister-in-law, niece and nephew.

Steve's wife and children say that it was Bob Irwin who decided to "distance himself from everything" that his son loved the most.

Unfortunately, the fraud went even further when Bindi, 21, announced her engagement to boyfriend Chandler Powell in July. Bob said he didn't get an invite to her upcoming nuptials.

“No, I haven’t had an invite to the wedding and, to be perfectly honest, I wouldn’t expect to be invited to the wedding.”

The real reason for the family split

Yet, the main reason for their misunderstanding seems to be found! Bob, who had given Steve and Terri 50 per cent of the park when they married, "wanted it to remain conservation first, tourist attraction second". But after Steve's death his wife has changed her priorities.

Moreover, back to those days Terri did everything to exploit her husband's fame. She published the memoir, Steve And Me: My Life With The Crocodile Hunter, the woman pushed her daughter to have her own fitness DVD and her own action doll.

Well, now everything seems to be quite clear - the man who gave his life to animals conservation simply wanted his son's family to continue making the world a better place. Still, we do hope the family will eventually put their offenses aside and reunite for the sake of the memory of Steve!
