Growing up in foster care, Max was returned to his mother when Kylie regained custody of him in 2011, after a period spent living at the Rovers with his aunt Becky McDonald when Kylie sold him to her and Steve for £20,000. Kylie managed to turn her life around and become a responsible parent, with her husband David Platt becoming the only dad Max knew.
Max's biological father Callum returned to the scene in 2014 and fought for custody of his son. Max was at first receptive, but became fearful of Callum after witnessing him and some heavies beating up Jason Grimshaw. Callum died shortly thereafter, but David has allowed Max's paternal grandmother Marion to see her grandson.
Kylie Turner gave birth to Max when she was nineteen on 5th September 2006. Max's father Callum Logan wasn't on the scene during her pregnancy and after Max was born, he ended up in prison for assaulting a judge, later losing touch with his partner and child.
The irresponsible Kylie's hedonistic lifestyle soon led to social services taking Max from her and placing him in foster care during which she was only allowed to see him twice a week for set periods and under strict supervision. When half-sister Becky McDonald tracked Kylie down and started to try and turn her life around, one of her aims was to get Max back for Kylie. Granting her a roof over her head at the Rovers and a job at Roy's Rolls fulfilled two of the court's conditions and at a hearing in September 2010, Kylie was given custody back. Her son came and lived at the Rovers thereafter.
In October 2010, Kylie decided to go on holiday to Cyprus and leave Max with Becky and her husband Steve. Becky soon remembered about the social worker visit and decided to pose as Kylie. Kylie later returned with a Greek boyfriend, Dimitri. Kylie announced she was moving to Cyprus permanently and taking Max. Steve and Becky decided to offer money to Kylie as an incentive for keeping Max. She agreed and demanded £20,000 for Max. After being paid, Kylie left Max at the Rovers and left for Cyprus. However, on the night of the tram crash, Max went missing and Kylie revealed to Steve and Becky that she had taken Max. Kylie demanded another £5,000 for them to keep him. Becky managed to find the money by looting the Corner Shop safe and after being paid once more, Kylie left again.
Upon her release from Redford Prison and return to Weatherfield, Tracy Barlow discovered that Steve and Becky had paid for Max and used it to gain custody of her and Steve's daughter Amy, blackmailing them. Kylie also returned again in March 2011, this time engaged to David Platt whom she met abroad. David was unaware that Kylie had sold Max and believed Steve and Becky had taken him from her. Kylie continuously fobbed him off saying she didn't want Max and that he was better off with Steve and Becky. Steve anonymously reported himself and Becky to social services and Max was taken into foster care in June 2011.
In August 2013 Max became a big brother after Kylie gave birth to his half-sister Lily Platt. In 2014, Max began suffering from hyperactivity and accidentally smashed the flat screen TV in the household. In July, David and Kylie took Max to Barbados to visit Becky.
In January 2015, Callum returned to street.
In March 2015, With Kylie gone, Callum told Max he was his real father and they started to bond. Callum and David started to battle for custody.
