PopSugar’s Biggest Celebrity Meltdown 2010: Matthew Newton

Matthew Newton started circling the drain back in March when he was thrown out of a Melbourne hotel after causing $4000 worth of damage. During a trip to Rome in August, he proposed to girlfriend Rachael Taylor but then allegedly chased her through a hotel lobby, punching her in the face and causing her to hit her head on the marble floor. He was soon sacked as host of The X Factor and checked himself into a Sydney clinic. Matt’s distraught parents, Bert and Patti Newton, appeared on A Current Affair, while Rachael took out an AVO and scored a guest role on Grey’s Anatomy. Meanwhile, Matt is still receiving treatment and is expected to be released before Christmas.
