Danniella Westbrook's former fiancé has denied beating her up.
The former 'EastEnders' actress' ex-fiance Tom Richards has taken to Twitter to defend himself over claims he physically assaulted her after she posted photographs of bruises he allegedly inflicted on her online to her 127,000 followers.
He wrote yesterday (05.03.15): "There is no truth that I hit daniella , I restrained her from hurting herself and getting in trouble,cuz its over dont mean u need 2b cruel (sic)."
Shortly afterwards Danniella responded to his tweet saying she had been in contact with the police.
She wrote: "Resting up with my family right now . metpoliceuk and doctors have been amazing . OfficialTomRich needs banging up CanOnlyFightWomen."
"So Tom Richards blocks me after beating me up and covering me in bruises. That boy needs arresting and sending back to wales. #PoliceAware"
Danniella first made the claim she had been beaten up by Tom when she posted an image of a dark purple bruise on the palm of her hand along with the caption: "Back to bed back up sleep for a while. Body bruised and hurting."
She also hinted at further injuries: "You think that bruise is bad there's more #KeepYaHands2 Yourself #keepItIntheCage".
"Broken sleep tonight when all I wanted was rest after the most horrid day ever #Its9verNow."
