Former Big Brother housemate, Rex Newmark, was reportedly involved in a fist fight last weekend in a soho nightclub.
A fellow clubber named Kelly O’Brien told The Daily Star: “I was scared. He turned into ananimal,” she said. “There was a group of five nice guys nearby, who we had been enjoying afriendly conversation with before Rex came along.“Once Rex realised we weren’t interested in him, he just went over and started punching one of them.
“He flipped. I don’t know where Rex had been earlier, but he seemed pretty drunk… He caught one of the guys, whose name was John, between the eyes and blood started pouring out.”O’Brien described the executive chef as “arrogant and obnoxious”.“My top was a little low-cut and Rex said: ‘I see you have your t*ts out tonight’,” she commented.
“I was insulted and replied: ‘You’re gross.’“But that got his back up and it just made him more persistent.“He boasted that he drove a Range Rover Sport and that his sequined top was worth £7,000. He was so arrogant and obnoxious, I tried to pull one of the sequins off.”Photographer David Abiaw commented saw the fight outside the club, he commented:
“I didn’t see how it started, but I saw Rex arguing and screaming abuse, then throwing a punch.“They were all rolling around on the floor, wrestling and kicking. One guy’s friends, some bystanders and bouncers tried to pull him off and stop Rex fighting their friend.”
He continued: “It was a messy fight. One of the friends of the guy Rex appeared to be fighting with tried to stop him with a right hook.“It kept breaking up, then they’d start fighting again. Rex even took his belt off and threatened to hit anybody who came near him.”
