      I'm not a fan of Boyd at all, but it wouldn't have been easy doing that TV story.

      I saw most of it on Monday night. It was very good. However I missed out on what had caused the rift with his mother?

      Perhaps he could'nt forgive her for calling him Darius.

        He has shown great courage telling his story. He is a complex character and is ridiculed for following Bennett. Fact is that Bennett is his dad in so many ways and that support has helped him. I hope he can find some solutions to tackle the depression demons cause so many people suffer from this.

          His mother had her own battle with mental health and that's what led to him being raised by his grandmother.

            I felt sorry for his Mrs, going thru that with him & not knowing what to do.
            Good to see they're expecting a youngen.

              Everyone has a story.

              His has been a real battle.

              Still doesn't excuse him being a dickhead, but he might now realise the error of his way.

              Realising the errors of our ways is all we expect of most people as they grow up. I'm sure Boyd is at that point and can now manage his situation better than he did in the past. I can only imagine the difficulty in facing the media/fans constantly while being in such a messed up headspace. He probably still is a bit of a wanker, but at least he's working on a path forward.

                spelt his surname wrong in the title,
                should be spelt bennett@:)

                Thank you @wombatgc for sharing this link, of which I'd otherwise be unaware (have no ABC reception). It gives a great insight into him and explains his strange past behaviour. Hopefully the errors of his ways are behind him now.
