Despite vowing to seek help again to “get off the booze”, Grant Hackett’s best intentions looked as if they might have fallen by the wayside when he was pictured hitting the bottle with a blonde friend at Palazzo Versace last weekend.
In April the swimming legend was questioned by police in Melbourne following an on-flight altercation.
The 35-year-old was on a Virgin Australia flight from Adelaide to Melbourne on Sunday morning when he allegedly grabbed a passenger by the nipple "quite forcefully" after a passenger reclined their seat backwards.
His recent outing suggests the incident was far from his mind.
According to sources, Grant and his friend knocked back more than a few drinks over dinner at the Gold Coast hotel’s waterside eatery Vie last weekend.
“They’d both had quite a bit to drink and got quite loud – she was hard to ignore," an onlooker noted.
