Tulisa's Boyfriend 'Left Unconscious After Brawl'
Danny Simpson was knocked out cold after being punched in Manchester...
A source told the tabloid: "Tulisa was shocked and upset when she heard what happened. She was worried that Danny might have been badly hurt, but she's been reassured he'll be fine."
The newspaper claims the clash started after Simpson got into a dispute with another man queuing at the Rice Flamebar and Grill, with a witness noting that the footballer had "had a few" drinks.
They said: "He was definitely drunk. Then him and this guy started getting aggressive with each other. They started scuffling. The man was pushing and shoving Danny and he just lost it. He punched him and he dropped to the ground.
"Someone pulled him off the man. Everyone in the takeaway was saying, ‘Danny, you can’t do that — you’ve got to leave’.
"Danny got in a taxi outside but the two bouncers rushed over and opened the door. There was a girl there trying to calm the situation and telling the taxi to take Danny home — but one of the bouncers dragged him out then punched him in the face.
"He dropped to the floor and was half on the pavement, half on the road with blood pouring from his mouth."
The onlooker continued: “He was in a bad way. It looked like he’d been knocked out. Everyone crowded round him. He was still breathing but not responsive.
“Luckily he’d landed in the recovery position so we didn’t move him. We didn’t know how badly injured he was at this point so didn’t want to risk it.”
Police have revealed that they paid a visit to the takeaway eatery after reports of an assault, but a man with minor injuries refused to file a complaint.
Tulisa is yet to comment on the episode, but a spokesperson for Simpson - who was apparently taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary hospital - has since stated: "Danny’s fine and will be back training tomorrow.”
