AVO court papers reveal Rachael Taylor feared Matthew Newton would kill her during their abusive relationship

Court Documents Reveal Rachael Feared Matt Might Kill Her

Court documents filed yesterday reveal explosive new claims regarding physical attacks Rachael Taylor allegedly suffered during her relationship with Matt Newton. Rachael feared Matt would kill her and she reportedly suffered a “concussion, bruising and a sprained jaw” after an assault at a Rome hotel. She filed for an apprehended violence order yesterday and says she suffered serious injury in three states during the last eight months. Rachael has photographic evidence of her injuries in Rome including “scarring to her top lip, arm and knee” as well as “neck injuries” and “bruising” consistent with having her head “bashed against the floor and walls.” Rachael filed the AVO because she is returning to Australia next month and fears for her safety. The papers are expected to be served directly to Matt in a Sydney psychiatric hospital.
