Italian DJ Accuses Conor McGregor Of Breaking Nose, Neck Vertebrae At Party In Italy
It’s been a month since Conor McGregor made headlines for trying to throw a punch at rapper Machine Gun Kelly at the VMAs. But he’s reportedly throwing punches again.
On Friday, McGregor was accused of breaking the nose of Francesco Facchinetti, an Italian television personality and DJ. The two crossed paths after McGregor and his fiancée, Dee Devlin, went partying after their son, Rían’s, baptism at the Vatican in Rome, Italy.
“At 2.30 this night I was attacked by Mr. McGregor,” Facchinetti said in an Instagram video (translated from Italian by SB Nation).
“The very famous McGregor, who punched me in the mouth, broke my nose in front of ten witnesses, his friends and his bodyguards. He attacked me without motivation as we talked for more than two hours and we also had fun together. I could have shut up and not say anything to anyone, but since I’m here to tell it, I must say that that person is really violent and dangerous.”
Facchinetti told Daily Mail that he has a broken nose and “squashed” vertebrae in his neck after an unprovoked attack by the UFC fighter.
They were reportedly at a party at the Regis Hotel with American actress Bella Thorne after McGregor and Devlin were attending her premiere of her new movie “Time Is Up.”
“It was all going great and we were having a brilliant time… He would pour me a whisky and I’d pour him a drink. It was a good atmosphere. The situation was very calm and friendly’,” the DJ said.
“Bella said she had to get an early train to go to Milan for a premiere and she needed to get some sleep. I said the party could continue and would stay with my wife. That’s when he flipped,” he added.
“He was completely out of control. He seemed like he wanted to kill me for absolutely no reason. Bella was stunned, she couldn’t believe what happened. Thank goodness his bodyguards were there to take him away.”
Earlier that day, McGregor and his family held Rian’s baptism, a religious ceremony, which is a rite of passage for Christians, in St. Peter’s Basilica. There are photos of McGregor carrying his daughter, Croia, in the Vatican. The couple also have a third child together, Conor Jr., who was in attendance.
Facchinetti said he is suing McGregor because he is “a violent and dangerous person.” The DJ’s wife also posted on her social media, warning her followers that the fighter is “an unstable and dangerous person.”
McGregor nor his team have commented on the alleged incident.
