New light has been shed on the feud between Sydney Swans captain Kieren Jack and his mother Donna over the star's relationship with girlfriend Charlotte Goodlet.
According to showbusiness reporter Peter Ford, the blonde TV producer has been the recipient of a series of unpleasant text messages by Donna, who recently took her family feud public by tweeting her disappointment over the fact her son didn't get her and husband Garry tickets to his 200th AFL game.
'Donna has said, and texted, the most appalling things to Charlotte, she doesn't like her and there seems to be no basis for her not liking her,' Ford told radio station 6PR.
'I might add she didn't like Kieren's last girlfriend either, so there seems to be a recurring theme here. She needs to take a good hard look at herself.
'It's about free tickets to a game, it's about wanting to be in the Swans' enclosure and being wined and dined as the parents of a star player. It is absolutely pathetic.'
Donna has yet to comment on the allegations, and has recently expressed her regret at the way the family discord has gone public.
