AFL superstar Dustin Martin is captured in shocking video shaking a topless woman’s chest as she sits on another man’s lap.

Several men sitting around a table outside respond by laughing and singing as Martin smiles and walks away from the woman.

The footage, which was leaked on the eve of the AFL final, shows the Richmond star handing the woman a drink before stroking her chest from behind.

While it remains unclear when or where the incident took place, the video appears to have been shot at a strip bar or club.

An AFL spokesperson said Wednesday evening: “We are aware of a video that has been posted on social media. We are looking for more information.’

Tigers coach Damien Hardwick said he was not aware of the video on Wednesday night, ahead of his team’s clash with the Brisbane Lions on Thursday night.

“There’s just an old video of Dusty online on Twitter this afternoon of what it looks like from 2017 on Twitter, I think at an event in Richmond. You know that, have you seen that video?’ 7 News reporter Tom Browne asked.

‘No. “I’m not so sure,” Hardwick replied.

Martin, who is notoriously private in the media, has been recovering from a hamstring injury since Round 16 and is due to play in Brisbane on Thursday.

In July, the star player launched the fitness and wellness app DRIP, along with friends from his close inner circle, with workouts and training plans.

The 31-year-old superstar has had a tough 12 months in which he tragically lost his father, suffered a serious kidney injury and was away from the Tigers for personal reasons, much of which was in New South Wales.

Many pundits and fans believe this is exactly where he will live next year, with the Swans’ overwhelming favorites landing him.

“Since we’re here now, there’s a good chance Dustin Martin won’t be playing in Richmond next year,” journalist Sam McClure said last month.

‘Sydney keeps getting mentioned. He loved Sydney… so if he wanted to go to Sydney, Sydney would move heaven and earth to make it happen.”

Veteran reporter Caroline Wilson went one step further, stating ‘it’s on’; with a peaceful split between club and player a viable option as the midfielder has to pay $2.6 million over the remaining two years of his contract.

“It’s (the move to Sydney) definitely something to be considered,” she said on Channel 9’s show Footy Classified.

“He started the year with a broken heart, it was a shock late last year … and for the first time I think there are people in Richmond looking at life outside Dustin Martin.”

Hardwick said that given everything the midfielder has accomplished at the club, he deserved the chance to be in his chosen spot on and off the pitch.

“Whatever Dustin’s decision is, it’s up to Dustin and to be honest, he has my blessing. What he has given me, us and our fans has been incredible,” the Tigers coach said at a press conference last month.

Martin had a tough 2021, missing several matches after rupturing a kidney during a match with Brisbane in July before losing 10kg and having a tough off season.

Dusty and his father Shane were kept apart for several years due to Covid-19 restrictions, with the couple reuniting for what would be the last time in April 2021

Dusty and his father Shane were kept apart for several years due to Covid-19 restrictions, with the couple reuniting for what would be the last time in April 2021

Then his father Shane – who had ties to the infamous Rebel biker gang – died suddenly in New Zealand in December 2021, aged just 54.

The pair were kept apart, with Shane living in New Zealand since 2016 after being kicked out of Australia when his visa was canceled due to his connections to the gangland.

Martin Jr was unable to visit his father in New Zealand due to Covid-19 restrictions and the father and son were not reunited until April 2021.

“It was a huge challenge, but it is what it is,” Dustin said in March, just months before his father was found dead on his kitchen floor.

“I love my father and he made me the man I am today.”

Martin spent his final years running a local trucking business before being found dead in December 2021 at his home in Mount Maunganui, 200km south-east of Auckland, from natural causes.

The Richmond superstar is the middle child of three boys and, in the eyes of his father, the one who was most connected to him.

Even from a young age he was footy mad, as his father remembered the many nights Dusty would put himself in bed with his soccer ball.

“I used to sleep with all my kids, but if I did with Dusty, he would sleep clinging to me and between us would be a soccer ball,” Martin said.
