Josh Brooks' former girlfriend has reportedly accused him of physically assaulting her during their four-year relationship
Josh Brooks' former girlfriend has reportedly accused him of physically assaulting her.
The 17-year-old Brooks Way singer and his bandmate and twin Kyle were suspended from the first of the 'X Factor' live shows on Saturday (08.10.16), as programme bosses began to investigate the sensational claims against him.
Josh has previously denied attacking Amelia Clarke, 18, who he dated for four years, but admitted she was accidentally injured when she tried to stop a fight at a party between him and another male.
The Sun on Sunday reports that Amelia allegedly told a friend: "I was constantly lying about where my bruises had come from. The worst time was last year.
"He came to my house and because my parents had new white carpets fitted I told him not to walk on them.
"He said the way that I spoke to him wasn't acceptable, knocked me over and kicked me in the face so hard that my nose broke. I heard it click out."
On Saturday a show spokesperson revealed that Brooks Way would not be performing, explaining: "Due to the serious nature of the information which has come to light concerning one of Brooks Way, the group will not be performing in Saturday night's show pending further inquiries."
And during the 'X Factor', host Dermot told viewers: "Sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances, Brooks Way will not be performing tonight."
Speaking last week after a report emerged claiming he had been arrested after a fight broke out at a New Year's party, Josh said in a statement: "A fight broke out between me and another male at a party.
"Amelia, along with others, tried to break it up and she was accidentally knocked in the process. It was never my intention to hurt her or put her in danger and this situation is way out of my character."
