Hack­ett on the mend

The Sunday Times - - NEWS - Amy Har­ris

GRANT Hack­ett has taken an­other big step in his re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion from ad­dic­tion and men­tal health is­sues with a move to Mel­bourne to be closer to his chil­dren and ex-wife Candice Al­ley.

The triple-Olympic cham­pion was snapped looking toned and healthy yes­ter­day for the first time since his re­cent move, emerg­ing from a work­out at his lo­cal gym in Prahran.

It’s un­der­stood Hack­ett re­lo­cated to Vic­to­ria from the Gold Coast late last month in an ef­fort to be closer to his chil­dren, twins Jag­ger and

Char­l­ize, aged seven, as he and Al­ley ne­go­ti­ate their cus­tody is­sues. The cou­ple, who mar­ried in 2007 and split five years later, share cus­tody of the twins. A close friend of Hack­ett con­firmed the ex-swim­mer was de­ter­mined to mend re­la­tion­ships with his fam­ily. “Grant’s de­ter­mined to work on that re­la­tion­ship,” a close friend said.
