Rachael Taylor granted two-year apprehended violence order against Matthew Newton in Sydney court today

Rachael Taylor Granted Two-Year AVO Against Matthew Newton


Matthew Newton and Rachael Taylor faced off in court today for the first time since their dramatic split in August. In a brief court appearance at Sydney’s Downing Centre Court, Matt agreed not to stalk, intimidate or harass his former fiancée as part of a two-year apprehended violence order. According to his lawyer, Chris Murphy, Matthew signed a “consent order” and cannot have any contact with Rachael unless it is through her lawyers and he also can’t destroy or deliberately damage her property or he will be in breach of the order and may face up to two years in jail. Rachael sat visibly shaking when Matthew entered the courtroom. Outside court, Rachael was flanked by bodyguards and her entourage and thanked the public and her friends for their support. Rachael alleged that Matt abused her during their eight-month relationship, which ended after a violent outburst in Rome.
