Suzi Taylor fight filmed by news crew

 

CONFRONTING vision has emerged of an alleged physical altercation between former reality TV star Suzi Taylor and a Gold Coast woman at a Brisbane hotel.

The vision, filmed by 9 News on January 23, appears to show Taylor pulling a phone from the hands of a woman, before pushing her.

Ms Taylor was charged with assault and stealing in relation to the incident.

The woman, Thelma Anderson, is a Gold Coast removalist who moved Taylor's belongings out of her New Farm rental property and into storage in November last year.

Police will allege Ms Anderson was paid $1200 out of Taylor's rental bond by the real estate but has received hostile calls from the former The Block contestant demanding the money.

The meeting in the inner-city hotel was reportedly to resolve the issue but it quickly soured when Taylor realised she was being filmed by Ms Anderson, as well as a Channel 9 cameraman.

Ms Taylor appears very distressed throughout the entire video.

"Can I get these people out, they're filming me," she says in the video.

Ms Anderson then retaliates, pushing Ms Taylor twice before saying "You hit me first".
