Matt Newton Back In Court- And Patti Finally Turns Up
This is when you have to be a mother and Patti Newton thankfully turned up in court to provide some support to her son Matthew Newton.
Matthew was in Downing St today to respond to breaching his AVO against former girlfriend Rachael Taylor.
He rang her and then texted her to apologise for phoning her.
Interestingly enough his lawyer said he will be applying under the section 32 of the Mental Health Act in his next court appearance.
It has been reported previously that his mental illness does not have a diagnosis.
Anyway it was good to see Patti Newton finally give some unconditional love to her son and be there with him. Instead of telling the world about their family troubles on national TV. Quite frankly I would like to know where Bert was.
Matt Newton has booked himself back into a private hospital where hopefully he is getting the treatment he requires.
UPDATE: The Daily Telegraph reports that Patti wants him to move back to Melbourne, but he is refusing to do so. The article also states that Matthew was looking medicated in the court room. Ok that is how I am interpreting the dazed and confused phrase.
