Kyle Sandilands told the world he had “no friends left” following the extraordinary raids last month that ensnared his good mates, the Ibrahims, along with former real estate high-flyer Ryan Watsford.
Now his BFF John Ibrahim has flown the coop, reportedly leaving Sydney for an overseas sojourn on Tuesday as his brothers Fadi and Michael arrived back in Australia, in handcuffs, after their high-profile extradition from Dubai.

And while Sandilands’ girlfriend Imogen Anthony remains by his side, on Monday night it was another bromance that appeared to be blossoming for Sandilands when the radio star arrived with another buddy of note: convicted drug smuggler and brothel operator Simon Main.
Sandilands and Main, along with Anthony, were guests at the Double Bay launch of the new House of K’Dor jewellery boutique, with a swanky party thrown around the swimming pool of the flash Intercontinental Hotel.
Sandilands’ gleaming black Bentley was conspicuously parked at the front door of the hotel, while shy, retiring Anthony was dressed demurely in a flaming red intergalactic cowgirl get-up with sequined stars on her pants and a novel, decorative crotch detail.
The party posse was a far cry from Main’s front-page making days in Italy in 2000 when he was nabbed by Italian police attempting to traffic 333,000 ecstasy tablets with a street value of $10 million – the word’s then-biggest haul.
