Geelong great Billy Brownless has opened up about his new relationship after attending the Australian Open with his girlfriend.

The 55-year-old told the Herald Sun on Wednesday, he is ‘very happy’ with his new girlfriend Justine.

‘Everything is going well. Taking it one week at a time as they say. We’re very happy and it’s nice to be out,’ he said.

The couple met at the AFL Grand Final September Club in 2019 and began dating almost six months later.

Justine works in customer relations and is a mother of two children.

She recently joined Billy as well as their friends Erinn Montagna and Leigh Montagna for a holiday in Fiji.

Footy fans will no doubt be happy to see Billy open to love again after his 18-year marriage to wife Nicky sensationally ended in 2016 after she started dating his best mate, fellow AFL star Garry Lyon.

Both men’s marriages had ended before Nicky and Lyon announced they were a couple, but Billy still felt betrayed because they had assured him they were nothing more than ‘just good friends’.

After five years of bad blood, Billy and Garry began steps toward reconciliation in 2021 when Brownless said they were in a ‘good spot’, before spending Christmas Day together.

Billy’s daughter Lucy described the lunch between the blended families as ‘really special’.

‘It worked really well and was all very positive. We’re all happy and happy to be all together. It was a great day. We were all really excited about that,’ she told the Herald Sun at the time.

Billy addressed the issue with fellow AFL greats Sam Newman and Don Scott on an episode of the pair’s You Cannot Be Serious podcast in September.

He admitted though he had not fully repaired his friendship with Lyon, he said the pair ‘might’ be able to be mates like before at some point.
