Photos emerge of Calum von Moger’s home after Australia’s Mr Universe ‘jumped’ out the window

Photos have been released of the damage at Calum von Moger’s home after the Australian bodybuilder jumped through a second-storey window.

The three-time Mr Universe winner is in a stable condition in hospital after he underwent surgery following the serious spinal injuries he sustained from the fall on May 6. 

Three windows have been damaged at the 31-year-old’s Geelong home, which have been boarded up in a series of images released after the incident.

Windows were broken on both levels of the two-storey property.

Glass shards have fallen underneath the boarded windows at the property and onto the driveway. 

Large shards were also scattered on the ground in Moger’s yard. 

An item that appeared to be a torn-up pet bed was left near a broken window on the first level of the property. 

The famous bodybuilder reportedly jumped out of the second-storey window at his home almost two weeks ago.

Emergency services including police vehicles and ambulances eventually arrived at the residence.

The reason for the incident has not been released. However, it was just the latest in a string of misfortunes to arise in Moger’s life.

Over the past five years, the gym junkie – once dubbed Arnold Schwarzenegger 2.0 – suffered a knee and bicep injury that left him incapacitated for a year, found out he was the father of a little boy named Kairos, and his house in California burnt down.

Earlier this year, he appeared in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court after he allegedly rammed another car and chased the driver with a machete, before police allegedly found cannabis, ice and testosterone in his possession.

He was charged with criminal affray and drug possession, was on bail and reportedly living with his brother in Melbourne while awaiting his next court mention on May 26.

Moger was reportedly kicked of his family’s home before he jumped out the window. But those who follow him closely online say he hasn’t been the same since his bull terrier, Rex, choked to death on a chip last year.

The strongman explained in a YouTube video that tragedy struck when he briefly left the house after moving to Texas in early 2021.

‘I left the house for 20 minutes to go to the store and I guess he got into one of the rooms and there was a bag of chips and he choked on a chip,’ Moger said. 

‘I came back, looked for him and found him on the floor with his head in the chip bag – I thought it was a bad joke, and then I went down and I couldn’t do anything.’

Moger tried giving Rex CPR, doing compressions, and raced him to the vet – but there was nothing anyone could do.

He described the situation as the worst thing that has ever happened to him – including the moment he was involved in an abseiling incident and spent a year trying to recover in 2019.

Just weeks earlier, his rescue dragon lizard, Baz, tragically died during a three-day power outage following heavy snowfall.

Moger doesn’t know why the lizard passed away because they’re supposed to live for at least a decade, but he only had Baz for four years.

A year prior, the gym junkie announced that he had learned he was the father of a little boy, Kairos, following a paternity test.

Moger said he was excited to be part of Kairos’ life, but wanted nothing to do with the boy’s mother. He frequently posts pictures of the toddler on Instagram.

The bodybuilder grew up in a large family with his parents and five siblings near Geelong in regional Victoria. 

In the documentary Calum von Moger: Unbroken, he described himself as a daredevil who was always trying to keep up with his brothers.

The film detailed Moger’s rise through the bodybuilding ranks to a point where he was dubbed ‘Arnold 2.0’ and how that came crashing down following a significant knee and bicep injury while abseiling.

‘I was pretty broken – pretty heartbroken,’ he recalled.

In the same year he nearly lost his home due to devastating fires in California.

‘This year was the most challenging, I had these terrible injuries, the house, the fires, so many things that are trying to knock me off my feet – it’s either going to make ya or break ya,’ he said. 

He started lifting weights at 14 and began entering competitions, but his big break came in 2017 when he was cast as young Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 2018 movie Bigger.

Moger quickly rose to fame after uploading videos of his physique and training online, amassing a following of more than 3 million on Instagram.

He tried a range of professions before pursuing bodybuilding full time, such as lifesaving, landscaping, touring adventure groups, skippering yachts and the army.

Just days before he jumped out the window, Moger posted a bizarre social media post saying he ‘messed up bad many times’.

‘But I don’t care about dwelling on negative thoughts of the past. All I care about is that I learn from my mistakes and become a better person.

‘I’m trying my hardest to stay strong but I have my days too.’

Another Instagram post featured a bizarre clip of him behind the wheel of his car with a parrot Ronnie on his shoulder, saying ‘catch ya later… alligator’ – in a hi-vis singlet.

Fellow bodybuilder and Youtuber Nick Trigilli said Moger was in a ‘rough spot’ at the time of the incident. 

Moger had reportedly been kicked out of his family’s home in Australia in recent times. 

‘I hope this is rock bottom for him and he can get his life back,’ Trigilli said.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Moger’s family for comment.
