Dawn Ward & Sinitta


Real Housewives Of Cheshire
star Dawn Ward, was convicted of assaulting singer Sinitta.

The 43-year-old, who is married to former footballer Ashley Ward, was found guilty of one count of common assault following a two-day hearing in London.

In April 2015, Sinitta and Dawn had arranged a lunch meet at a Belgravia restaurant to try to clear the air between them following gossip about a friend’s affair.

During the meeting, Dawn shoved and threw a napkin at a “shocked” and “humiliated” Sinitta, Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard.

Dawn was warned by District Judge Elizabeth Roscoe that she would be bound over in the sum of £500 for three months and ordered to keep the peace and be of good behaviour.

No costs were awarded.

The judge said: “I am going to deal with it quite unusually because I think this quite frankly is, to use an old-fashioned phrase, ‘a storm in a teacup’”. The court has had to spend two days (hearing this case) and have a (police) officer here for two days is a nonsense”.

This is what Dawn says about the outcome: “I am disappointed the court has found a prod to Sinitta’s shoulder to amount to the lowest form of common assault. I am however delighted that the court found me to be a truthful witness and rejected Sinitta’s complaint that I punched her and tried to glass her. They were disgraceful allegations which were untrue and the court did not accept her evidence.”
