Rachael Taylor files an AVO against ex-boyfriend Matthew Newton in Sydney Australia

Rachael Taylor Files AVO Against Matt Newton

Rachael Taylor isn’t backing down when it comes to distancing herself from ex-fiance Matt Newton. A lawyer for the actress filed an application for an apprehended domestic violence order in court today. The papers will be served directly to Matt, who is at a Sydney psychiatric hospital, in the next few days. Rachael allegedly suffered serious injuries during “two unprovoked assaults” in Rome. She is believed to be back in Moscow filming The Darkest Hour and filed the AVO because she is returning to Australia next month and fears for her safety. Matthew is expected to use mental health issues as his defence when further court submissions are heard on October 22.
