Baker’s outing comes after his ex girlfriend Laura May Gibbs broke her silence on the couple’s split.
The Byron Bay activewear mogul categorically denied rumours the LA Confidential actor broke up with her because she attended an anti-vaccine mandate protest.
Laura slammed this ‘false narrative’ about their split in a lengthy Instagram post earlier this month, declaring it was ‘simply not true’.

Laura insisted their split was amicable, adding: ‘I never discuss my private life, but I will say this – the friendship and respect I share with [Simon] runs too deep for the media’s noise to have any true impact in our lives.’
The businesswoman also defended her decision to protest against vaccine mandates at the NSW-Queensland border last Sunday.
The demonstration was part of a series of rallies across the country against mandatory Covid jabs for certain industries and occupations.

Laura said she’d long been an advocate for ‘freedom of speech and choice’ – even before vaccine mandates were put in place.
She wrote: ‘I won’t apologise for voicing my concerns, when I see so many struggling, losing their livelihoods and being silenced, shamed and ridiculed for wanting to ask questions.’
‘Activism is important to me, I’ve attended numerous environmental rallies and Indigenous rights protests, and taken action in all of these areas. If the media is going to cover issues I make a stand on, then report the full scope of the matter – and while you’re at it, lead with my name,’ she added.
Her post came a week after Simon’s spokesperson confirmed he and Laura had quietly parted ways several months ago.
