TENNIS star Nick Kyrgios has been accused of assault by his ex-girlfriend Chiara Passari.
The Wimbledon finalist Kyrgios is due to appear in court next month over an alleged incident involving his former partner.
Who is Chiara Passari?
Chiara Passari is known for being the ex-partner of Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios.
She is Australian and is understood to be from Brisbane.
Passari seems to have an interest in art as her Instagram biography also reads ‘Comparison is the thief of joy’ followed by a linked account named @coldworld.art.
When did Chiara Passari and Nick Kyrgios date?
Kyrgios first introduced the world to Chiara Passari in 2020 via Instagram.
The couple were cosied up in the photo which was captioned: “Happiness is found”.
However, this caused controversy as the picture was uploaded only three months after the conclusion of Kyrigos’ relationship with Russian tennis player Anna Kalinskaya.
Despite their relationship going on for several months, the pair broke things off in 2021 and Passari has since accused the tennis bad-boy of cheating on her with a model and claimed she had photographic evidence.
By December 2021, Kyrgios was pictured with influencer Costeen Hatzi at a basketball game which suggests that his relationship with Passari ended in Autumn.
This has been confirmed as Kyrgios has moved on and is now dating blogger and influencer Hatzi.
What has Chiara Passari accused Nick Kyrgios of?
Kyrgios is accused of assault and is alleged to have grabbed his former partner Passari last year, according to The Canberra Times.
It quoted police in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) in a statement released Tuesday afternoon.
Police said: “ACT Policing can confirm a 27-year-old Watson man is scheduled to face the ACT Magistrates Court on the 2nd of August in relation to one charge of common assault following an incident in December 2021.”
Barrister Jason Moffett, who represents Kyrgios, confirmed his client was aware of the summons.
“It’s in the context of a domestic relationship,” he told The Canberra Times.
“The nature of the allegation is serious, and Mr Kyrgios takes the allegation very seriously.
“Given the matter is before the court… he doesn’t have a comment at this stage, but in the fullness of time we’ll issue a media release.”
