Swimming legend Grant Hackett has this morning confirmed that he and wife Candice Alley have separated, with him wishing her “every success”.
“I can confirm media speculation this morning that Candice and I have separated,” Hackett said in a statement.
“I want to be dignified in my approach to everything and ensure the children’s needs are paramount and put first.
“I wish Candice every success. It is my hope that everybody can respect the process and be kind to all parties involved as it is a very difficult time.”
It is believed that Hackett and his singer-songwriter wife separated following the Logies incident in which Hackett was asked to leave the official after-party, and the other incident from six months ago probably didn’t help either.
