Lyon quited The Footy Show with depression due to the relationship, leading to a bitter falling-out between Brownless and him.
Before Nicky and Lyon came out as a couple, both men’s marriages had broken down, but Billy still felt betrayed because they had told him they were nothing more than “just good friends.”

The Former Geelong player’s daughter Lucy considered the meal between the two blended families lovely and that it went exceptionally well, where everyone was delighted to be there, in her statement to the Herald Sun.
Although he acknowledged that he had not quite restored his friendship with Lyon, he suggested that eventually, the two “may” be able to get along again.
