It came as a blow to the AFL community when the news about Garry affair with his friend’s ex-wife hit the limelight. In March 2016, Billy appeared on The Footy Show where he opened up about his falling out with close mate Garry. He revealed that he was hurt and shocked by their relationship.
“Initial feelings? I couldn’t believe it. I found out three or four months ago that something was going on. I had a hunch. I did some investigation myself, sat Nicky down and we had a chat and she told me. My initial feelings were, like anyone — you get angry. You’re headless, you’re angry. I shot of a couple of texts to Garry and to Nicky which you wouldn’t want to repeat on this show. And then after a couple of days, you get embarrassed. Now, I’m just disappointed.”
Billy, who has four children with his ex-wife; Lucy, Ruby, Oscar, and Max also said that a best friend would never do something like what Garry did. He added-
“I had asked Gary and Nicky earlier on what is going on and they said they were just good friends. That’s what hurts the most. You don’t touch a man’s wallet, you don’t touch his wife. Let me tell you, by law it’s legal to do what they’re doing, but morally it’s wrong in all aspects.”
Billy had a belief that his ex-wife Nicky and close friend Garry’s relationship had been going on for four years. He had been telling this to his friends.
Not only Garry and Billy but their ex-wives were also assumed to be good friends. Both of the family has also been on family holidays together. Garry and his ex-wife Melissa together have three children; Benjamin Lyon, Joshua Lyon, and Thomas Lyon whereas Billy and Nicky have four children; Lucy, Ruby, Oscar, and Max.
Post his divorce with Melissa, and with the end to Nicky and Billy's relationship, both Garry and Nicky have made their relationship official. After being spotted together at the Cafe Brass launch in Richmond on March 2018, the duo admitted themselves to be in a relationship.
Nicky talked to the Herald Sun and mentioned how happy they were to be together.
"We're really happy to be out. It's nice to be together."
However, Garry's relationship with his best friend remains broken after his affair with Billy'swifee. In an interview, Garry mentioned how the two are still not on talking terms.
"I haven't spoken to (Billy) since before Christmas previously, I spoke to Bill before this became public and beyond that, it's something for he and I to work through and we'll do it."
With the friendship admired by many now hanging on the balance, fans of both the stars hope that they reconcile their differences soon.
