Warne’s alleged complainant, Valerie Fox, took to Twitter over the weekend to post a photo of herself with a black eye.
“Proud of yourself? Hitting a woman? Vile creature,” she wrote under the photograph.
“No, I am not lying. Just because you’re famous doesn’t mean you can hit women and get away with it.”
