The former Geelong star and his new flame, whose last name has not yet been revealed, went public in November after they were seen attending Flemington Champions Stakes Day together.

Brownless first met Justine when he was introduced by fellow AFL great Leigh Montagna and his wife Erin in 2019 at the AFL Grand Final September Club following the AFL grand final.

The happy couple began dating six months later and recently joined Montagna and his wife on holiday in Fiji.

Brownless’ new relationship comes seven years after his split from ex-wife, Nicky Brownless after she famously ended their 18 yearlong marriage to date Brownless’ former best mate, Garry Lyon in 2016.

“I didn’t expect it. You think she’ll come back and all that, but she didn’t,” said Brownless in 2020.

“So that was a good kick in the guts.”

The betrayal sparked a feud with Lyon however Brownless said he has since worked to mend his relationship with his ex-wife and former friend.
