The former player, turned controversial media personality, married partner Amanda Brown in their apartment in the Docklands, according to The Herald Sun.

It marks the fourth time Newman, 74, has been married.

The ceremony took plays just days after Brown’s 50th birthday and was officiated by The Perfect Match host

Newman had a child with his former wife, Leonie Jones, before their marriage fell apart.

While Newman is often in the public spotlight due to his comments on social media or his podcast You Cannot be Serious, Brown has remained out of the public’s attentions.

Newman in the public spotlight

Newman has been very vocal about Melbourne’s strict lockdown laws during the coronavirus pandemic.

In August, Newman was savaged for urging Victorians to gather and protest on the streets in a bid to ‘take the city back’.

More recently, he was widely condemned after allegedly referring to US President-elect Joe Biden as “mentally retarded”.

In a since-deleted tweet, the 74-year-old former AFL player reportedly took aim at Biden.

“Great day for inclusion and diversity,” the former AFL Footy Show panelist reportedly wrote.

“Shows someone who is mentally retarded and has special needs, can attain high office.

“Congratulations, Joe Biden.”
