Sarah Harding Speaks Out Over Boyfriend Bust-Up

Sarah Harding has opened up about her New Year's bust-up with her former boyfriend Theo De Vries.

The Girls Aloud star was taken to an Innsbruck hospital in Austria in the early hours of New Year's Day after becoming embroiled in a violent argument with Dutchman Theo.

The blonde beauty, who was staying at the Hotel Schloss Matzen near Innsbruck, revealed how she was dragged around the hotel room by her hair.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: "He grabbed me by my hair - throwing my head on the floor. We were struggling.

"While he had me by the hair, he was pulling me across the floor. He was dragging me around.

"He was smacking my head on the floor. He bit my ear. And when I kicked him to try and get him off me, I got his nose and he was bleeding. He smeared the blood all over my face so it was all over my clothes.

"Look at me, look what he has done to me. That doesn't come from just holding me back. I've got bruises on my bum. Bruises on my legs.

"The damage to my arm is probably the worst. This is where they bandaged me in hospital as they thought I might have fractured it."

Sarah arrived back at her Buckinghamshire mansion after complaining to Austrian police over the incident.

The singer met Theo whilst in rehab where she was treated for alcohol addiction and depression, but sparked an argument after mentioning ex-fiance Tom Crane, who she split from last year.

She said: "I think he knew I missed Tom, because I do - desperately. I think in a way I was on a rebound. I think that p**sed him off. I called him Tom a few times by mistake. He hated that. Probably when we were rowing - probably because I used to shout at Tom.

"I have spoken to Tom... We still have a lot of love for each other, but we know we are just not right for each other at this point in time. I think that's what p**sed Theo off. He knew that I still had a lot of love for Tom."

Theo has defended himself, saying: "I've never hit anyone in my life. I did restrain her but nothing more."
