Glamour model attacked husband and hotel manager because she was ‘suffering from PMT’

A glamour model flew into a furious rage and assaulted her husband and a hotel manager – because she was suffering from PMT, a court has heard.

Katherine Nwaiwu, 28, lost her temper and violently grabbed husband Chukwudi before aiming kicks at him when he told her he was “leaving” during a row.

The commotion was so serious that fellow guests at the luxury hotel called 999 while manager Boris Vasques-Gallo tried to intervene.

But the model, from Malmesbury, Wilts., then pushed Mr Vasquez-Gallo in the corridor in an attempt to escape, causing him bruising to his shoulder.

Nwaiwu, who has posed for magazine including Fiesta, Knave and Escort under the name Katrina Wild, pleaded guilty to two charges of assault by beating after CCTV evidence was produced.

A charge of assaulting one of the police officers who arrived at the hotel was dropped.

She was conditionally discharged for 12 months and ordered to pay £400 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Sentencing her Timothy Godfrey, deputy district judge, said: “You behaved in a thoroughly anti-social way that was serious enough to upset other hotel guests who complained.

“This stemmed from you losing your temper with your husband in your room and you assaulted him and the manager who was only doing his job.”

Hammersmith Magistrates Court, London, heard that Nwaiwu flew into a rage following a domestic row with her husband while they were staying at the Kensington Close Hotel, Kensington, on January 24.

She began to lash out after Chukwudi threatened to leave.

Vijay Khuttan, prosecuting, told the court that CCTV showed Nwaiwu violently grabbing her husband and then aiming kicks at him.

“As the husband was leaving the hotel she assaulted him and pushed the manager in the process of trying to get to the fire escape,” he said.

“It is a push to the shoulder against the fire exit door, there is no great force as she was trying to push him out of the way, but he had some bruising, which was pointed out by someone else”

The court heard that first-time offender Nwaiwu, who makes £25,000 a year from her modelling work, blamed pre=menstrual syndrome for her behaviour.

But judge Mr Godfrey did not accept the excuse, telling her: “I take that into account, but it is no excuse”.
