Swans co-captain Kieren Jack has reportedly requested that his parents not attend his milestone 200th AFL match in a bizarre family feud that involves his brother and model girlfriend.
Jack, the son of rugby league great Garry and mother Donna, will run out for Sydney for the 200th time against Geelong on Friday.
But his mother publicly tweeted the star on Monday, revealing the split between the player and his parents.
Donna Jack, whose Twitter profile reads "everything starts & ends with family", posted on Monday:
"@kjack_15 so sad. Dad 200 RL you 200 AFL & you done want us there, your parents. No appreciation for all the yrs helping you get there."
Fairfax reports that Jack's younger brother Brandon, a junior Swans player, has also fallen out with the Jack parents.
Meanwhile the Daily Telegraph reports that Garry and Donna Jack "do not approve" of Jack's relationship with Perth model and Nine News producer Charlotte Goodlet.
Earlier this year Jack's mother revealed cracks in the son/parent relationship when she tweeted:
"@kjack_15 @sydneyswans isnt it time as Captain you practised what you preach. Family is what gets you there, done [sic] ever forget that."
