Anthony Albanese has denied rumors that he will be DJing at Kyle Sandilands’ upcoming wedding.
The Prime Minister and New South Wales Premier Chris Minns have both secured invitations to the lavish nuptials of the radio host and his longtime partner Tegan Kynaston.
The highly anticipated wedding, which is believed to cost over $1 million, will take place at the Swifts’ extravagant mansion at Sydney’s Darling Point.

Last year, Mr Albanese said he would perform a DJ set if the radio king spat out an invite.
Although he has remained tight-lipped on previous matters, in an appearance in Hobart on Saturday morning Mr Albanese put the rumors to rest for good.
When asked if he wanted to be a DJ, he simply replied, “No”.
‘Yes I was invited to the wedding, yes I was invited in the context of Kyle saying how happy he was with Tegan, with this relationship, his and with baby Otto coming and I looking forward to witnessing their expression of love between two people this afternoon,” Mr. Albanese said.
When asked on Friday if he was going to release his alter ego, DJ Albo, the Prime Minister remained curiously silent.
Instead, he noted Sandilands’ rags-to-riches success story.
“One of the things about Kyle Sandilands – I’ll say this – a guy who at one point was homeless, lived on the streets of Sydney and became a major public figure, is part of what is an Australian success story,” he said.
I can’t wait to witness their expression of love between two people this afternoon,’ Mr Albanese said of his attendance at the wedding of Kyle Sandilands and Tegan Kynaston (pictured) on Saturday.
Asked why he was there, given that the best man in Sandilands is convicted drug dealer Simon Main, Mr Albanese remarked that he was not ‘in charge of the guest list’ .
Deputy Leader of the Opposition Sussan Ley was quick to criticize Mr Albanese for ‘turning bridges at a million dollar wedding when people can’t pay their rent’.
“There’s nothing wrong with going to a friend’s wedding, but it’s curious that the prime minister thinks he can take a day off a few days before his first real budget,” she said. declared.
“The test of this budget will be whether (Mr) Albanese gives Australians a start date for the $275 reduction in electricity prices, a start date for the cheaper mortgages promised by Labor and a start date for actual wage increases.
“It’s hard to see how the prime minister can justify being here tomorrow when there are still no answers to those promises.”
In an interview between Sandilands and Mr Albanese earlier this week, he revealed the Prime Minister would be responsible for keeping his mother company at the wedding.
“She’s a fan of yours, so she’s going to lose her mind,” the shock sportsman told him live.
