In February, Carey sensationally opened up about his ‘abusive’ past and addressed his infamous affair with his best mate’s wife.  

The North Melbourne legend said ‘you don’t actually have to hit someone to be abusive’, and admitted to mental intimidation in his past relationships during a bombshell interview on an episode of SAS Australia.  

Wayne detailed his 2002 affair with Kelli Stevens, the wife of his then-teammate Anthony Stevens. 

He said: ‘It’s haunted me for over 20 years. I was in self-destruction mode. You know, I guess my life started to unravel.’

The sports star was married to Sally McMahon at the time, and Anthony had even acted as a groomsman at their wedding just a year earlier. 

Wayne later issued a public apology to his former best friend in 2016, insisting the affair had been a one-night only event.   

Following the highly publicised affair, he left his football club and struck up a relationship with model Kate Neilson, who he later proposed to, and things turned from bad to worse. 

He was arrested and charged by Miami police during a holiday with Kate after she alleged that Wayne had smashed a wine glass on her face during dinner, cutting her mouth and neck.

Police were called to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel at around midnight on October 27, 2007, where they found Wayne asleep.

According to the police report, Wayne appeared drunk when they woke him, and he lashed out, kicking one officer in the mouth and elbowing another in the face.   

He was then taken to Miami-Dade County jail and charged with assaulting a public servant, resisting an officer with violence and aggravated battery. 

Wayne later pleaded guilty to two counts of battery of a law enforcement officer and one count of resisting arrest with violence. 

He agreed to make a $US500 (AUD$694) donation to the Miami police benevolent fund, attend classes on alcohol abuse and anger management, and has written letters of apology to the police officers involved. 

'In America, I've been charged with assaulting police. I got accused of glassing my girlfriend,' he said. 'I went over to throw wine on her in a restaurant, which clearly is wrong. The glass touched her lip, the headlines were that I glassed her'

‘I went over to throw wine on her in a restaurant, which clearly is wrong. The glass touched her lip, the headlines were that I glassed her.’ 

Wayne said that the incident was ‘one of the biggest regrets of my life’, but insisted the glass had only ‘touched her lip’. 

‘[It] didn’t break. I wasn’t trying to glass her,’ he said. 

‘All my partners will say I’ve never been physically abusive, but have I been abusive mentally and also, I guess, intimidating? Absolutely,’ Wayne said. 

‘Actually being physically violent to someone, I saw that everyday growing up… Horrific stuff,’ he said.

‘And that’s why when people close to me said, ‘That is unacceptable,’ I’d say, ‘What do you mean? I raised my voice, I stood up. You know, I put my arm on her.”

He added: ‘I now know how warped my thinking was. You don’t actually have to hit someone to be abusive.’ 

Wayne said ‘the penny dropped’ and he eventually changed his problematic behaviour.

‘I spoke to the right people, and that’s not to say that I’m a perfect human now either. I’m still a work in progress,’ he said. 

He added: ‘I’m not proud of some of the things that I’ve done. But I’ve done a lot of work on myself over the last 10 years and I take ownership of it.’
