It’s not often that Justin Bieber inspires violence, but eyewitnesses have reported seeing Danny Dyer get kicked in the head in front of his daughter at V fest this weekend, by none other than Mark Wright’s friends.
The scruff left the Eastenders star lying on the floor with a black eye at the festival in Essex, after watching Justin Bieber. He was with his fiancé Jo Mas and Eastenders co-star Danny Boy Hatchard as well as his daughter Dani.
Danny, who’s getting married in two weeks, told a friend, “They all just came at me and jumped me. There was a lot of them. And it was in front of my kid. That’s not right. This eye just needs to heal before the wedding.”
The attack followed events on Saturday night where, according to witnesses, Danny had been calling Mark a c*nt and tw*t in the Mahiki backstage area.
Danny’s fiancé Jo was appalled, adding, “How could Mark Wright’s friends do that to my Danny in front of my little girl. We are here on a family trip and this happens.Danny is not an aggressive person, he wouldn’t have wanted to fight anyone. They’ve ganged up on him. I can’t believe they’ve done this.”
Another source close to Danny said, “Mark was no way involved in the fight, he was shocked by what happened and was telling them to stop fighting.”
At the end of the fight, Mark apparently ran over to the scene while one of Danny’s mates shouted, “Please, please can you get them to stop.” Mark then asked his friends to stop, as Danny’s daughter cried and was also yelling at the men to stop.
Danny’s friend then urged the arguing pair to talk, and Mark is said to have told Danny, “I’ve got a lot of respect for you, I grew up watching The Business. I don’t know how it’s got to this.”
The beef started three years ago when Mark insulted Danny at a charity event, and then was re-visited when Danny took shots at Mark on Twitter, writing, “My worst nightmare would be listening to Heart FM while eating an Oykos yoghurt. It would be like p***ing razorblades.” Peaaaaaak.
