In the past number of weeks he has been making headlines with reports of trouble brewing brewing between him and fiancée Marnie Simpson.
Now former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment has gotten himself into some bother of a different kind.
The 25-year old former reality TV star was making a nightclub appearance in Brighton over the weekend when her was attacked on the street outside the club by five men.
In the middle of the chaos Ricky himself was arrested by police for suspected bodily harm. However, he was quickly released.
Friends of the star, who was said to be badly shaken following the incident, have reportedly said that he believes he was attacked because of his public profile.
A spokesperson for Ricky confirmed the incident with the Mail Online and said that it occurred following an appearance as Shoosh nightclub.
A spokesperson for the Sussex Police said about the incident:
“Police officers on patrol in East Street were alerted to the fight near to the junction with Kings Road around 2.25am. As the situation calmed, the victim of the assault declined to provide a statement and the man was de-arrested. He left the area immediately.”
Ricky was not charged in relation to the incident. However, in recent days Ricky has been at the centre of much controversy over his relationship with Marnie.
Earlier this week reports were claiming the pair had split after Marnie’s tweets about feeling heartbroken had people feeling curious.
She later came back to deny the claims she and Ricky had split, instead explaining her beloved dog Smith had passed away. Ricky also took to social media to deny the claims saying:
“Until you get a quote from me personally, don’t believe what you read.”
