Vanessa Sierra has announced she’s flying home, days after her tennis pro boyfriend Bernard Tomic was filmed smashing up her $16,000 laptop during a tantrum.
On Sunday, the 26-year-old OnlyFans star announced she was set to fly back to Australia via Dubai just days after the blazing row, which took place in a penthouse apartment the pair were staying at in Croatia.
While Vanessa said nothing on whether or not the couple had called time on their relationship, she spoke in a video: ‘So I’ve made the decision that I am coming home.

‘I’ve booked my flight for tomorrow to go to Dubai, just because I have residency in Dubai and it’s like the half way before coming back to Australia.
‘I’m also putting off doing quarantine in the middle of winter. Just a little update for you guys.’
The Love Island Australia star later shared a video of her face looking downcast, which she tellingly captioned: ‘Home can’t come quick enough.’
It’s not clear what Tomic plans to do next, but he is not currently staying in the same apartment as Vanessa.

Shocking: The footage showed Tomic breaking the laptop with his knees, causing $16,000 in damage, claimed his girlfriend Vanessa
Her announcement comes just days after the shocking argument was shared on Vanessa’s Instagram page.
Footage showed Tomic in the midst of a tantrum, while a visibly-worried Vanessa watched as he used his knees to break the MacBook in half.
Despite the mammoth argument, on Friday night Vanessa claimed the pair had not ended the relationship, but had just ‘stopped talking to each other’.
‘It was pretty childish of me to post the video but in my head I thought ”OK well I’ve got to make the money back somehow”,’ she said.
‘Since then Bernard has actually paid me back and sent me an apology and we’re finally talking again.
Sorry: Tomic took to Instagram to apologise for his actions and plead with his girlfriend to make up. She has since confirmed the pair are ‘talking’
‘He has come to his senses and I also want to put it out there that Bernard is going through a lot of personal stuff at the moment, I’m being mindful of that so I’m trying not to create any more hate towards him which I already have created.’
Vanessa also confirmed then that she was planning to return home, but wasn’t sure where her relationship with Tomic stood.
She added that she was hit with a barrage of ‘hate’ online after revealing she’d spoken to the tennis star, adding she ‘doesn’t excuse’ his behaviour.
‘I haven’t made any decisions yet. I’ve simply said I’m talking to him and I’m not excusing any of the behaviour,’ she said.
‘I’m here to make my own decisions, I’m giving him a chance to explain himself and talk to me and I think that’s fair enough so I’d appreciate a little bit of kindness in the messages.’
Over: Two weeks ago, Tomic (pictured with Vanessa) found out he did not qualify for the French Open
‘I’m in my hotel and he’s in his.’
After footage of Tomic snapping the laptop surface, he issued a bizarre public apology.
‘Shouldn’t have broken her stuff I don’t know what came over me,’ he wrote on his Instagram story alongside a photo of himself and Vanessa.
‘My ego too big but I’m going to drop it for you. So sorry wife. Please let’s make things right. Love you.’
Police in Split, a coastal tourist town in Croatia, have since confirmed they are investigating the incident.
‘Don’t mess with a tennis player’s ego. To replace the 16k worth of damages from his little tantrum. I’m leaking a private tape to my OnlyFans. Not sorry,’ Vanessa captioned the laptop smashing footage originally.
