Lesbian love triangle sparks karaoke bar brawl
A karaoke bar, a lesbian love triangle and some bitchy comments turned into a fur flying cat fight on St Stephen’s day last year.
The trouble started with lovers Samantha Hedges and Gillian Christie went to the pub for a drink and a sing, only to find Tammy Murdoch and Hedges’ ex-girlfriend, Kelsea Duffy, inside the venue.

An eyewitness said the women had come to blows after "bitchy comments" had been exchanged between them.
All four girls were involved in the melee, which resembled a rolling maul, outside the Burns Tavern in Ayr, Scotland on December 26th.
Today Ayr Sheriff Court found that 28-year-old Hedges and Christie (26) were guilty of attacking Miss Murdoch.
They pulled her to the ground by her hair and then started to punching and kicking her in the face and body, leaving her with a black eye and suspected broken ribs, the court heard.
They had also been charged with attacking Kelsea Duffy, the 21-year-old former partner of Hedges, but Ayr Sheriff John Montgomery found it not proven.
Duffy, who is now pregnant, said she was left with a bleeding head, bruises and damage to her elbows.
The judge remarked he was “truly aghast at young ladies engaging in this sort of unseemly cat fight with each other outside a public bar."
The court heard that Hedges and Duffy had only broken up six months prior to the incident.
Christie and Hedges will be sentenced later this month.
