New details are coming to light about Matthew Newton’s spectacular Italian meltdown and it ain’t pretty. The former X Factor host had to be sedated and treated by paramedics after allegedly attacking girlfriend Rachael Taylor in the lobby of a five-star hotel in Rome. Rachael is believed to have screamed for help at the Westin Excelsior, where she suffered serious bruising and a head injury after allegedly striking her head on the marble floor. She is now seeking a restraining order against Matthew. A source close to Rachael said she was adamant that he wasn’t affected by drugs or alcohol when the incident occurred. Details of another alleged incident between the pair was reported by Today Tonight which reveal that Rachael was found cowering in tears in Matthew’s trashed dressing room on the set of The X Factor earlier this month. Rachael is now back at her LA home while Matt is back in rehab.
