Lisa Curry’s model son Jett Kenny, 28, has ‘NEVER read a book’ – and he hasn’t even looked at his mother’s memoirs
Lisa Curry has garnered widespread praise for her new autobiography, Lisa: A Memoir – 60 Years of Life, Love and Loss.
But there’s one person who won’t be flipping through its pages – Lisa’s model son Jet Kenny.
Speaking to The Australian Women’s Weekly, the Olympic swimmer, 60, admitted her influencer son, 28, hasn’t read her book yet, and likely never will.

When asked whether Jett had read her autobiography yet, she replied: ‘I don’t know Jett’s ever read a book!’
‘I know that [my daughter] Morgan will read it and that her husband [Ryan Gruell] will read it,’ she added.
Lisa’s confession comes after Jett tried a banana for the very first time during his appearance on SAS Australia last year.

‘I ate a banana for the first time on the show,’ he told the Daily Telegraph in September.
‘The selection of food I eat isn’t great at the best of times,’ he conceded.
Elsewhere in her interview with AWW, Lisa admitted her Ironman ex-husband Grant Kenny may also never read her memoir due to its raw subject matter.

‘I don’t know if Grant will read it. I know there are parts he can’t read because I sent those chapters [about our late daughter Jaimi] to him to read and he couldn’t even look at them,’ she admitted.
Jaimi died at Sunshine Coast University Hospital in September 2020 at the age of 33.
She had been battling alcoholism and an eating disorder for years before her death.

In her book, Lisa also shares harrowing details about her Jaimi private struggles prior to her death, including an incident when she was ‘taken advantage of’ by a male friend while she was drunk.
Lisa and Grant, once considered a golden couple of Australian sport, married in 1984, welcomed three children together – son Jett and daughters Jaimi and Morgan – and separated in 2009.
Almost a decade after her divorce from the Ironman champion, Lisa married Elvis impersonator Mark Tabone in 2018.
