Nixon takes health break
Kim Duthie AFL player manager Ricky Nixon will check into a rehabilitation clinic to have treatment for a ‘‘ substance problem’’. It is the latest development in the drama surrounding Melbourne 17-year-old Kim Duthie, with one of the AFL industry’s most prominent men saying he would take an indefinite break from his work. Nixon returned to Australia on Sunday. He’d left two weeks ago, within days of admitting having ‘‘ inappropriate dealings’’ with Duthie. But he continues to deny her allegation that they had a sexual relationship. In a statement he said he was taking an indefinate break.
