Rolf Harris' daughter Bindi allegedly banged her head against a wall and smashed some of his paintings upon discovering her friend had accused him of sexual abuse
Rolf Harris' daughter banged her head against a wall upon discovering her father had been accused of sexual assault.
Bindi Harris was "beside herself" when a childhood friend claimed the 84-year-old TV presenter had molested her and confronted him in an angry phone call in 1997, a court has heard today (29.05.14).
Rolf has denied 12 counts of indecent assault against four underage girls, including Bindi's friend, between 1968 and 1986. The star has previously confessed to having a consensual relationship with the woman when she was 18.
Prosecuting barrister Sasha Wass QC quizzed Rolf about his daughter's reaction to the allegations, saying: "Bindi was beside herself?"
The star responded: "I suppose so, yes."
He added that in her anger, Bindi had smashed some paintings had gifted her, while Ms. Wass claimed Bindi had also banged her head against a wall.
Rolf said: "I don't recall her being angry with me in person but I recall her breaking some paintings I had given her so I assumed she was very angry."
The 'Animal Hospital' presenter, who has been supported in court by Bindi and his wife Alwen Hughes, continued to deny any wrongdoing and says his accusers are "lying".
