Ricky Nixon is a 59 years old former Australian rules footballer in the VFL/AFL and a former sports agent born on the 3rd of April 1963.
Likewise, Kim Duthie is the St Kilda schoolgirl who ruined Nixon’s career at its peak as they got into a heated controversy around 2011; Duthie was only 17 at that time.
Did Ricky Nixon And Kim Duthie Have An Affair?
Kim Duthie’s affair with Ricky Nixon began in 2011 when they were messaging one another back and forth. However, Kim filmed him while they had private time in a hotel room, and it was all over newspapers and television screens.
There were also allegations about the pair having physical intercourse and having substances while in the hotel. Although Ricky denied the allegations, the then-teenager said it was true. However, Nixon claimed she drugged him with GHB, while Kim claimed he paid her $500 to go on The Project to deny the allegations.
Wife-To-Be Melissa Huynh Denies Allegations
Amid the drama between Ricky and Kim, which ruined his career, the former sports agent got into another accusation of being a racist when he got filmed arguing with other passengers in a confrontation on a Melbourne tram.
However, his wife-to-be, Melissa Huynh, denied the allegations and shared he just wanted not to get filmed. She further shared that her fiance has a big heart and works to raise money for people with cancer.
The footage also captured how Nixon suggested a woman of Asian appearance had brought COVID-19 into Australia, which was inappropriate. Although he apologized, his actions were unacceptable; he also got filmed threatening to smash another woman’s phone when he spotted her filming him.
Former manager Ricky Nixon’s Family And Kids
Nixon appears to be engaged to the beautiful Melissa Huynh of Asian descent, and she seems much younger than him; however, he appears to have been previously married and shares two sons named Lewis and Mitchell with his ex-wife.
The lovely pair has been dating since 2017 and has been together for five years. Furthermore, they make a toast to commemorate their love anniversary on the 13th of September every year. However, neither Ricky nor Melissa has revealed if they have walked down the aisle or shared their wedding photos with the media, so we presume they aren’t married yet.
Moreover, the former manager doesn’t seem to share any kids with his partner yet, but they might have plans to have babies in the future. Both have shared many precious moments on their social networking sites to keep their admirers updated on their lifestyles. They are available on Instagram under the handles @rickynixontoot and @i_am_melissa_huynh.
How Much Is Ricky Nixon’s Net Worth In 2022?
Ricky was one of the most high-profile sports agents and an influential figure in the AFL at his peak in Australia; thus, he might have a net worth of at least $1 million to $5 million.
The athlete played as a half-back flanker for the Carlton Football Club, St Kilda, and Hawthorn Football Club before he retired in 1993 and began his journey as the most high-profile sports agent in Australia.
Furthermore, he taught physical education at Carey Grammar for eight years and established his sports management company Flying Start in 1994. Nixon also started Docklands Stadium and co-owned the Locker Room Bar and Cougars Sports Bar with Michael Gudinski.
However, his career went downhill when he got caught in a controversy with a 17-year-old girl. Yet, he bounced back and relaunched Flying Start International in 2014, started a charity, Kicking for Cancer, in 2019, and started a new business Vital Health Checks in July.
