Kings Cross cops question The X Factor host Matthew Newton after receiving reports of a man shouting

Kings Cross Cops Question a "Dishevelled" Matt Newton

Hmmmm. Matthew Newton has reportedly turned over a new leaf—he completed a stint in rehab, got engaged to Rachael Taylor and landed a job as host of The X Factor. But The Sun-Herald says Kings Cross police were called to his inner-city house after receiving reports of a male shouting. According to the police report, a dishevelled Newton answered the door and officers saw blood on his hands. Dun dun dun. Newton claimed he’d been on the phone having a “passionate argument” with a friend. When he heard the officers knock on the door, he turned and tripped over a heater, grazing the skin on his hand. He was not charged with any offence. Newton planned to join fiancée Rachael Taylor in Russia where she’s working on a new movie, but instead decided to stay in Sydney for his X Factor duties.
