Kyonne also expressed how proud he is of himself for having chosen the right path, saying that these experiences helped shape him into the man he is today.

Kyonne’s father Keith was handed a four year prison sentence after beating up a woman in her home in 2018. He was also separately accused of assaulting another woman by hitting her with a metal rod amongst other things.

Days after being sentenced for his first crime, Gravina harmed himself whilst in prison. Despite surviving the ordeal, he died last April after spending 5 months in hospital. A Times of Malta interview gave Kyonne the space to open up about the experience ahead of the release of the new season of Love Island Malta.
