Sarah Harding claims ex-boyfriend Theo De Vries smeared blood all over her face and dragged her around the room during their holiday bust-up in Innsbruck, Austria, on New Year's Day (01.01.12).
Sarah Harding claims Theo De Vries smeared blood all over her face during their holiday bust-up.
The Girls Aloud singer has opened up about the violent argument with her Dutch ex-boyfriend, and claims he bit her ear and dragged her across the floor during a drunken rage on New Year's Day (01.01.12) during their getaway to Innsbruck, Austria, which left her with a bandaged arm and bruises.
Recalling the attack, she said: "I have a black eye and bruising. He had me by the neck, on the floor, and I kicked him to get him off me.
"He grabbed me by my hair - throwing my head on the floor. While he had me by The Hair, he was pulling me across the floor. He was dragging me around.
"He was smacking my head on the floor. He bit my ear. And when I kicked him to try and get him off me, I got his nose and he was bleeding. He smeared the blood all over my face so it was all over my clothes.
"I've got bruises on my bum. Bruises on my legs. The damage to my arm is probably the worst. This is where they bandaged me in hospital as they thought I might have fractured it."
Sarah - who ended her romance with DJ Tom Crane in November - met Theo in rehab in Cape Town, South Africa, where she was treated for alcoholism and depression.
Before things got physical, the 30-year-old pop star claims Theo - who was being treated for addictions to alcohol and crack cocaine - "goaded" her about being a "B-class singer" and a "f***ing alcoholic".
In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Sarah - who admits she'd had a gin and tonic but was not intoxicated - added: "We met in rehab and I was at a real low in my life. We got on really well and he was a completely different person when we were in rehab.
"We just decided to give it a go. When we came back to London, things just didn't seem to be the same ... During the row he said, 'You're nothing but a B-class singer. You are just a f***ing alcoholic. You have got no friends.
"He was really, really horrible. Any insecurities I had, he used them Against Me. He was goading me. The abuse carried on and on and on till I'd had enough. He got so horrible I threw a coffee cup at him. It missed."
