Rachael Taylor is reportedly unhappy with Bert and Patti Newton for airing ex-fiance Matt Newton’s dirty laundry on A Current Affair. The distraught couple appeared on the show last Monday to talk about their troubled son and their fears for his safety. According to Woman’s Day, Rachael was astounded that they would go on TV to tell the world about his mental instability without his knowledge or permission. One of Rachael’s closest friends spoke to the magazine saying, “She feels Matthew’s very public family life—from birth and not of his choosing—is the key to his anger issues.” Rachael’s parents have also spoken out, telling the Sunday Telegraph that they are “angry” and “bitter” at Matthew and were shattered by revelations that he allegedly assaulted their daughter at least five times during their turbulent relationship. Friends say Rachael will not be pressing criminal charges regarding the incident in Rome, which allegedly left her with a sprained jaw, concussion and bruising, but will seek legal action for incidents that happened in Australia. According to Rachael’s father, Nigel, the actress is back in Los Angeles, adding, “She’s doing auditions because there’s no point moping around. She’s too strong for that.”
