Reports: Conor McGregor Accused of Assaulting Woman on Yacht Last July
Conor McGregor has been accused of attacking a woman on his yacht in Ibiza, Spain, last July.
According to a report from Spanish outlet Ultima Hora, a 42-year-old woman was partying at the Ocean Club in Ibiza on July 16 with mutual friends when she was invited back to McGregor’s yacht. The alleged victim said she knew McGregor because they’re from the same neighborhood in Dublin.
The alleged incident occurred the following morning when the woman claimed that McGregor began to insult her appearance and then kicked her in the midsection, punched her and threatened to drown her. The woman told Irish police that she “feared for her life,” and she jumped in the water to flee from the attack, where she was eventually rescued by a Red Cross boat.
“His whole behavior changed and he became very aggressive,” the woman told police.
According to the report, the alleged victim did not initially indentify McGregor as her attacker to Spain’s Civil Guard police because her she initially just wanted to return home. She filed a formal police complaint upon return to Ireland. Irish privacy laws will likely prevent McGregor from being named in the investigation. Karen Kessler, a spokesperson for McGregor, has denied the allegations, in a statement to the Majorca Daily Bulletin.
“Mr. McGregor is steadfast in his denial of all the accusations made by a guest on his boat,” the statement read.
A former two-division UFC champion, McGregor has not competed for the Las Vegas-based promotion since July 2021, when he broke his leg in a loss to Dustin Poirier. More recently, the Irish star was involved in filming for a role in the “Roadhouse” remake.
