Alleged victim of AFL player bashing's gushing post

THE woman allegedly bashed by former Brisbane Lion Albert Proud had only recently wrote a gushing post about how lucky she was to have a new man in her life.

News Corp reported that Proud allegedly bashed 35-year-old Richelle Kadadi so severely that she suffered a brain haemorrhage, after they returned from a friend's wedding.

Proud, 27, has been charged with attempted murder, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and wilful damage.

Ms Kadadi is in a coma and fighting for life.

She was reportedly rescued by the newlyweds from the wedding she had attended and taken to hospital.

It is understood that Mr Proud and Ms Kadadi had only been together for a few months.

On October 26, Ms Kadadi wrote on Facebook: "Not only has he nursed me through a really rough two weeks health-wise, looked after my little boy and kept the smile on my face … I've just woken up this morning to a note from Albert Proud that he's booked me into a day spa today to give me some rest.''

"My mind is absolutely blown and I'm so blessed to have this selfless, loving man in my world.

"I'm so in love Proudy."

The 35-year-old has a young son from a previous relationship.

Proud had also looked after her while she had tonsillitis and a toothache.

"He came back from the chemist one day with a bag full of stuff saying he pretty much bought everything to try and make the pain go away," she wrote.

He replied with: "Baby, just don't make me out to be a big softie. I still gotta hold down the badass reputation here on FB - jokes. Enjoy it my Queen."

Proud's charges were heard briefly in court yesterday morning. He did not apply for bail.

He is expected to appear again on November 19.
