South Sydney Rabbitohs star Sam Burgess was last week cleared of any wrongdoing in NRL’s lewd sexting scandal.
And the 29-year-old appears to be moving on from the drama, after he was reportedly seen shopping at a swanky Sydney jeweller on Friday.
According to The Sunday Telegraph, the footballer popped into luxury store Levendi where he enquired about ‘some expensive baubles for his heavily pregnant wife Phoebe’.

The publication contacted store owner Panos Levendi, who refused to disclose what kind of jewellery Sam snapped up for his missus.
Phoebe is currently 27 weeks pregnant with her and Sam’s second child.
The couple are proud parents to a 20-month-old daughter named Poppy.

The Rabbitohs went down 12 – 4 to the Sydney Roosters during Saturday’s semi-final at Allianz Stadium on Saturday.

Afterward, Sam took to Twitter to say that he was exploring legal avenues over the saga.
‘I have not sexted anyone. I fully cooperated with the inquiry as I said I would. I have engaged lawyer Chris Murphy to pursue my remedies and he has retained defamation lawyers,’ he said.
‘I have given a full account to the Inquiry and answered every questioned asked. It’s now in Mr Murphy’s hands. The next move is up to him. I have nothing more to say at this stage.’
Cleared of wrongdoing: An emotional Sam fronted the media last week, where he thanked his wife and family for their support
It was widely reported that Sam’s social media account was used to communicate with a 23-year-old woman following a win over the Warriors back in May.
Two players – not Sam Burgess – were believed to have exposed themselves to the woman, who then complained to the club via an anonymous email over a period of three months.
The woman, who was believed to be on holiday in South Africa, was this week interviewed by NRL integrity unit investigator Karyn Murphy but declined to be quizzed by a five-person panel.
Moving forward: A spokesman for the NRL said based on the information available, the NRL was satisfied with the position the panel has reached with respect to the allegations against players
‘Based on a thorough review of the available evidence before it, the panel was not satisfied that any South Sydney player engaged in any actionable misconduct resulting in a breach of their NRL playing contract, the NRL rules or the SSFC code of conduct,’ the club said in a statement on Friday.
