Ryan Giggs denies headbutting and assaulting Ms Greville’s sister
Ryan Giggs has denied assaulting his sister and headbutting her during a domestic dispute in 2011. Emma Greville, the sister of the soccer player, called 911 to report the incident. Giggs was heard telling the operator, “You f*****ked this up!” Giggs has denied the accusations, claiming it was an accident. The Welsh footballer also denies elbowing his sister in the jaw.
Giggs denies the charges, saying that the incident was a “misunderstanding” and “a misunderstanding”. He has also denied any sexual harassment or headbutting. The former Manchester United player and Liverpool footballer was on a leave of absence since November 2020. He is a co-owner of the Salford City football club. In 2013, he met Ms Greville while promoting his Hotel Football venue in Worsley, Greater Manchester. In December 2017, he separated from his wife, Stacey, and married lingerie model Zara Charles.
Giggs’ legal counsel told the court that the incident occurred in the rain while the pair were away from home. Ms Greville’s sister was at a hotel when Giggs allegedly headbutted her. A neighbour, Linda Cheung, offered to call the police but the pair declined. Giggs then walked back to his home.
Ryan Giggs denies headbutting Kate Greville and assaulting Ms Greville’s younger sister. Ms Greville claims Giggs threatened her sister with headbutts and attacked her after she retrieved her phone from her. She told the court that she was “hounded” and tried to make it stop.
The trial began on Monday, and Giggs denied the allegations. He also denied threatening to release intimate pictures. In the courtroom, Giggs’ lawyer, David Daw, told the jury that any contact between Giggs and his sister was accidental and not deliberate. During the trial, Giggs’ next-door neighbour, Linda Cheung, gave evidence. She said Giggs acted erratically before and after the police arrived.
After the incident, Ms Greville was upset and tearful. She had bruises on her arm, which she claimed were caused by ‘rough sex’ with Mr Giggs. In February 2020, Ms Greville was seen by Ms Roodt. She told the court that she and Mr Giggs had ‘rough sex’ the night before and it ended in a fight.
After Kate Greville’s fall, Ryan Giggs was shouting and crying in the background of the phone call. Her sister’s phone rang and Emma Greville came to the house first. A few minutes later, Mr Giggs appeared. She was reportedly drinking. In the process, she was confronted by Mr Giggs and told to call the police. Mr Giggs later accused Kate of stealing his phone.
Mr Giggs has denied the allegations. He has denied attacking Kate Greville and displaying controlling behaviour. He denies the charges of assault by beating her sister.
He denies controlling or coercive behaviour over a three-year period
Footballer Ryan Giggs has entered a not guilty plea to the charges of assault and abuse against his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville. He denies head-butting Greville and elbowing her in the jaw. The former Liverpool player also denies abusing Greville.
A jury for the case began deliberations on 23 August. On 22 August, lawyers for both sides gave closing arguments. Giggs is accused of assaulting Kate Greville and using coercive behaviour in a three-year relationship with her. However, the jury was unable to reach a verdict and was discharged. The case will now proceed to a mention hearing in September.
The court heard that both Mr Giggs and Kate Greville became distressed when giving their evidence. Judge Manley said witnesses must put aside any personal feelings and focus on the evidence. The judge also reminded jurors of her instructions at the beginning of the trial.
He denies assaulting her younger sister by elbowing her in the jaw
Kate Greville, the younger sister of Ryan Giggs, has accused her footballer boyfriend of controlling her and assaulting her in a recent incident. She is accused of having been unfaithful in several relationships, but Giggs denies any physical abuse.
The footballer is on trial at Manchester Crown Court and denies the allegations. He is accused of assaulting the younger Greville in a heated argument, during which he allegedly elbowed her in the jaw. The footballer denies all charges, including common assault causing actual bodily harm.
Greville and Giggs had an argument when Giggs returned home earlier than planned. The argument escalated into a physical altercation after Greville grabbed Giggs’ mobile phone. She attempted to intervene, but was elbowed in the jaw. She then head-butted her, causing swelling to her lips.
After the incident, Emma Greville calls the police, and a recording of the call was played to the jury. In the background, you can hear her crying and the operator asks whether she wants an ambulance. After the call, the operator confirms that Kate is in pain and has been headbutted by Giggs.
Emma Greville testified that she was not drinking or drunk at the time of the incident, but the incident took place when the pair were home from an outing. She said that Mr Giggs had threatened her, making her feel scared. She told her sister to call the police. The footballer had also asked her to take his phone, and she was afraid to do so.
The case will be heard in a few days. The jury will determine whether Giggs is guilty of the charge. If found guilty, the footballer will face a lengthy prison sentence. A jury will decide on whether or not Giggs was guilty of assault.
The trial of Ryan Giggs will be heard in Manchester. The case is still ongoing, but he will need to appear in court if he is found guilty of assaulting his sister. The trial will be heard on the basis of the evidence presented in the trial.
