Nine sports commentator Grant Hackett was back in the spotlight on the weekend after newspapers published photographs from a domestic incident last October.
The showed the aftermath of what Hackett later described as “a few private issues that we needed to deal with,” and showed an upturned grand piano and further disarray.
Police cars were called to his apartment at the time, but no charges were laid.
Hackett later said, “A lot of it has been speculation and unfortunately we have to deal with the consequences now. But everything is ok, our relationship is great and everything in our apartment is ok as well.”
But since then he has split with wife, singer Candice Alley.
Yesterday The Alannah and Madeline Foundation severed ties with Hackett as a charity ambassador.
“Grant was very committed to his role with us and we thank him for the work that he has done,” said Chairman, John Bertrand.
Nine has declined to comment on the pictures published at the weekend, with Hackett remaining as an Olympic commentator.
