Tulisa Contostavlos's boyfriend Danny Simpson was reportedly knocked out cold after an early morning fight in Manchester.

The Newcastle United footballer was seen unconscious outside a takeaway at around 4am yesterday (February 3).

He is said to have been punched in the face during an early morning brawl, according to The Sun.



Tulisa reportedly discovered news of her boyfriend's injury while on holiday in Spain.

A source said: "Tulisa was shocked and upset when she heard what happened. She was worried that Danny might have been badly hurt, but she's been reassured he'll be fine."

The fight allegedly started after Simpson got into a scuffle with another customer queueing at the Rice Flamebar and Grill.

Witnesses have said that the footballer hit another man - said to be in his 40s or 50s - knocking him to the ground.

Simpson soon left the scene and got into a taxi, but was then reportedly dragged out of the vehicle and punched by a different man. He then lay bleeding unconscious on the road for around 15 minutes before an ambulance drove him to hospital.

A witness said: "He was definitely drunk. Then him and this guy started getting aggressive with each other. They started scuffling. The man was pushing and shoving Danny and he just lost it. He punched him and he dropped to the ground.

"Someone pulled him off the man. Everyone in the takeaway was saying, 'Danny, you can't do that - you've got to leave'."

The witness, who claimed the men involved in the altercation were off-duty bouncers, said: "Danny got in a taxi outside, but the two bouncers rushed over and opened the door.

"There was a girl there trying to calm the situation and telling the taxi to take Danny home - but one of the bouncers dragged him out, then punched him in the face."

Simpson's spokesman said: "Danny's fine and will be back training tomorrow."
