    Default MATTHEW NEWTON

    Matthew Newton back in rehab



    Controversial TV personality Matthew Newton has been forced to quit his hosting role on The X Factor days before the show goes to air to look after his health.

    In April, Newton - son of showbiz couple Bert and Patti Newton - spent 28 days in Melbourne's Malvern Private Hospital, which specialises in drug and alcohol issues.

    On Monday the Seven Network issued a statement saying his health is the reason Newton has been forced to withdraw from the much-heralded show, which is due to go to air on Monday, August 30.

    "Matthew had a strong commitment to the program - he has tried his utmost to make it work," the statement read.

    "He has the support of his family and close circle of friends as he works his way back to full health."

    The The X Factor's high-profile judges are singers Ronan Keating, Natalie Imbruglia and Guy Sebastian and controversial radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands.

    News Ltd says Newton was escorted back to Australia by one of the show's producers after getting into a fight with girlfriend Rachael Taylor in a Rome hotel.

    After his stint in rehab earlier this year, Newton told New Idea magazine he was a "work in progress".


    "I don't think there comes a time where you go: 'Great, now I'm fine. Now I'm sorted'," he said.

    "It's a constantly evolving process. For me, it's about working towards being a happier, better person."

    He added: "One of the things I learnt [in rehab] was that I am just like everyone else - I am flawed."

    Default Low actor Matthew Newton needs some of his own medicine

    Low actor Matthew Newton needs some of his own medicine
    *
    MATTHEW Newton doesn't need to go back to rehab. Matthew Newton needs a good hiding. A smack in the mouth.

    No doubt this piece of outstanding commentary, said without fear or prejudice, will send the sob sisters into a flap this morning as they stand appalled at the sheer brutishness of it.

    No, they will sob, Newton has an illness and he needs our support.

    Heavens no, they'll weep, condemning him is the last thing we should be doing.

    For goodness sake, they'll bleat, his behaviour is a result of his addictions.

    Until we get to the doozy of all doozies: He can't help it.

    But beating up a woman is not the action of an addict. It is a sign of poor character. The action of a weak man. A dog.

    If Newton's alleged behaviour is beyond his control, as this reliance on an "addiction" seems to suggest, how come it never happens in a pub full of Botany Bay wharfies?

    Why is it the thin little girlfriend who apparently copped it? Why her and hotel rooms? Oh, that's right, he denied trashing the room himself, although he did foot the bill.

    In the AVO Rachael Taylor is believed to be applying for today, she detailed how Newton had allegedly assaulted her on two nights.

    According to her, it was no one-off.

    And, she claims, while Newton was giving her the business he was not affected by drugs or alcohol. Apparently he was sober.

    Yet the minute the story broke Newton was quickly rushed off to rehab.

    If drugs or alcohol weren't involved why is Newton going back to rehab?

    What is he seeking treatment for?

    Being a dog?

    Plenty of people, even in rehab, have problems, yet they don't beat up a woman.

    It makes you wonder if the whole rehab experience is nothing more than a nice little public relations exercise to repair what is left of his reputation.

    It gives Newton a crutch. Rehab makes it look like he has gone off for treatment so when he returns, no doubt amid great fanfare, we will have to stand and cheer his courage to beat the demons that nearly destroyed him.

    I would rather vomit.

    If Taylor is to be believed, then Newton is a serial offender, having pleaded to a charge of common assault against former girlfriend Brooke Satchwell in 2006. He was finally let off on a good behaviour bond with no conviction recorded.

    But that does not change his original plea: He pleaded guilty.

    A neighbour at the time spoke of regularly hearing Newton going off at night.

    "Generally speaking he was just a bad neighbour. It would be screaming at night," the neighbour said.

    Yesterday Newton's sister Lauren said he was working through his "issues".

    Is that what they call it these days?

    How about some accountability?

    Some responsibility?

    If somebody had grabbed him by the collar back when this first started and given him a little some of what he was allegedly giving her, things might have panned out differently.

    But no, excuses keep getting put up for him.

    The good news is if he is found to have acted out again he might still get his flogging, one way or another.

    Default Ice binges 'behind Matt Newton's downfall'

    Ice binges 'behind Matt Newton's downfall'

    Television veterans Bert and Patti Newton have described their son Matthew's fall from grace as a "train wreck" and revealed he is on watch at a mental health clinic amid fears he will harm himself.

    In an interview to air on A Current Affair tomorrow night, Newton's parents Bert and Patti tell Tracy Grimshaw their son "always had a bit of a problem with his temper".
    "There was a bomb about to go off somewhere, sometime ... we don't know how to handle it," Patti says.

    Newton who was last week sacked from The X-Factor amid allegations he attacked former fiance Rachael Taylor while in Rome is currently undergoing treatment at Sydney's Northside West Clinic, a mental health centre specialising in depression, anxiety and psychotic disorders.

    Bert admitted his son's latest troubles have been "a bit of a train wreck" and said the most important thing is that he "stays alive".

    The couple also reveal Newton is on watch at the clinic because of concerns he may harm himself.

    Friends of Newton have also described him as a "tortured artist" who is suffering schizophrenic-like behaviour because he reportedly uses the drug ice.

    The Sunday Telegraph reports Newton underwent an MRI scan at St Vincent's Hospital for "neurological diagnostic investigations".

    The report quoted various unnamed friends who said the 33-year-old battled a dependency not only to the powerful stimulant ice but also to marijuana, cocaine and alcohol.

    "He does have a turn in his personality, and it's often triggered by a chemical substance or something he's using. Otherwise, in general he's very charming, very creative, very talented," one friend said.

    The Telegraph reports Newton has also been dropped by leading acting agency RGM, which also represents other high-profile stars such as Cate Blanchett and Anthony LaPaglia.

    Default Matt was a ticking bomb: Patti Newton

    Matt was a ticking bomb: Patti Newton

    Matthew Newton's mother, Patti, says her son was a ticking time bomb and was always going to go off sometime.

    Speaking on Channel Nine's A Current Affair in an interview to air tonight, Patti says Matthew's biggest problem is not drugs or alcohol - it is his mental health.

    Matthew Newton lost his job as host of the X-Factor after it emerged last week he violently assaulted his girlfriend, Rachael Taylor, at a hotel in Rome, prompting her to take out an AVO against him.

    The Seven Network issued a statement saying his health was the reason Newton has been forced to withdraw from the show.

    Patti Newton says in the days leading up to the attack, he was calling her from all over the world, told her he had proposed and then everything went sour.

    His father, Bert Newton, has also admitted his son's life is a train wreck and says he has tried to help him for a long time.

    But he told the program he did not know how.

    The TV legend says he found out about many of Matthew's recent problems in the media and regrets publicly supporting him because it gave the impression he condoned his son's actions.

    Matthew is currently receiving treatment.

    It is not the first allegation of domestic violence Newton has faced.

    In 2007 he pleaded guilty to a "one-off" assault on actress girlfriend Brooke Satchwell during a break-up argument.

    Newton admitted to punching Satchwell and pushing her into a wall at his Sydney home while she begged him to stop.

    He was given a 12-month good behaviour bond for the assault but the conviction was later quashed after the judge heard of his history of mental health problems.

    In April, Newton spent 28 days in Melbourne's Malvern Private Hospital, which specialises in drug and alcohol issues.

    Default Bert and Patti Newton speak out about Matthew

    Bert and Patti Newton speak out about Matthew

    Show business veterans Bert and Patti Newton struggled with their son's erratic behaviour since he was a child and warned him about it while dating actors Rachael Taylor and Brooke Satchwell.

    "With both of them I said: 'Be careful, they are young beautiful girls and they won't put up with being shouted at'," Mrs Newton said in an exclusive interview with A Current Affair aired tonight.

    She said her 33-year-old actor son is currently on suicide watch while seeking help at a mental health clinic in Sydney.

    The Underbelly star and former X-Factor judge has been embroiled in allegations he attacked former fiancee Rachael Taylor while in Rome.

    Three-and-a-half years ago he was charged with assaulting former Neighbours star Brooke Satchwell after a bitter end to their relationship. The charges were later dropped.

    When asked tonight if her son had said he wanted to self-harm, Mrs Newton said: "Many times."

    "He's the saddest I've ever seen anyone," she said in the ACA interview.

    "He's lost the girl of his dreams that is the toughest thing." She and husband Bert said their son was now taking medication to curb his outbursts, which began when he was a child.

    "Years ago bipolar was mentioned [by doctors] but he wouldn't take [medication], he would never want his creativity to leave him," Mrs Newton said.

    Both parents said the latest drama had "exhausted" their patience.

    "Bert and I don't know where to turn or what to do", Mrs Newton said.

    Bert Newton added: "Matthew has to get back to being healthy again There's one lesson to be learned and there's one person to learn it, and if that can be done, hopefully he can be okay," he said.

    Default Rachael Taylor applies for AVO

    Rachael Taylor applies for AVO

    Actor Rachael Taylor has applied for an apprehended violence order (AVO) against former fiance Matthew Newton because she fears for her safety, her lawyer says.

    The Transformers star will return to Australia next month and wants to prevent fellow actor Newton coming into contact with her, lawyer Christine Nash told reporters.

    Ms Nash on Wednesday lodged the AVO application on Taylor's behalf at the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney.

    "She's very distressed about the events and it takes a while to get over what just happened so I don't think you could say that she'd be feeling particularly happy at the moment," Ms Nash said outside the court.

    Newton allegedly assaulted Taylor twice in Rome where the pair were holidaying two weeks ago.

    The assaults allegedly took place on August 13 and 14, a few days after Newton proposed to Taylor.

    Taylor has been in the US and Europe since leaving Rome but will return to Australia in October, Ms Nash confirmed.

    "She's coming back to Australia so she has fears for her safety so she wanted to make sure that she took out an order that prevented him from approaching her," she added.

    "She's got everybody's support.

    "She's the victim here. She's a lovely girl and she's not done anything wrong."

    The matter was held over to September 22 in Downing Centre Local Court.

    Newton, the son of showbiz couple Patti and Bert Newton, is currently in a Sydney psychiatric clinic where he remains on suicide watch.

    The Newtons told the Nine Network's A Current Affair program on Monday their son has suffered episodes in the past.

    "I told (Taylor) many times that she had to be really careful and I worried about her," Patti Newton said.

    Newton withdrew as host of Seven Network show The X Factor.

    He had a month-long stay in a rehabilitation clinic in Melbourne earlier this year.

    In 2006 he pleaded guilty to assaulting then girlfriend Brooke Satchwell in their home in the Sydney suburb of Balmain.

    His conviction was quashed on appeal.

    Newton's girlfriend applies for AVO

    The girlfriend of television personality Matthew Newton has formally applied for an apprehended violence order (AVO) against him.

    Rachael Taylor's barrister Christine Nash filed papers at Sydney's Downing Centre Local Court today.

    Ms Taylor alleges she was the victim of two unprovoked, violent assaults in Rome last month.

    Outside court Ms Nash said her client was planning to return to Australia and feared for her safety.

    "I've just lodged the AVO on behalf of Rachael Taylor. Obviously she's very distressed about the events, and it takes a while to get over what just happened," she said.

    "So I don't think you could imagine that she'd be feeling very happy at the moment."

    The parents of Rachael Taylor say they are "angry" and "bitter" at Matthew Newton after dramatic allegations he assaulted their daughter at least five times during their troubled relationship.

    The actress is even considering laying criminal charges against Newton, Sydney's Sunday Telegraph newspaper reports.

    "We didn't know everything at first then more and more came out and it just got worse and worse."
