Conor McGregor set to face police investigation over alleged assault on DJ

Conor McGregor is set to face a police investigation after an official complaint was filed by Italian musician Francesco Facchinetti.

The Irishman is currently on holiday in Rome with his fiancee Dee Devlin and three children to collect his new £2.6 million Lamborghini yacht.

But he has been accused of breaking the nose of Mr. Fachinetti in an alleged assault after a party in the Italian capital last weekend.

Now the Italian has filed an official complaint, which he posted on Instagram, with the national police on Tuesday.

He has since insisted that he won't drop his complaint against McGregor even if he was offered €10million.

Mr. Facchinetti claimed: “I could have shut up and not said anything to anyone, but since I’m here to tell it… if McGregor’s lawyer were to call me tomorrow and offer me €10m to withdraw the complaint and to withdraw everything, I would say no.”

The Daily Mirror has contacted McGregor's representatives and the Rome police for comment.

According to the DJ, the pair spent over two hours together before the alleged incident took place including exchanging phone numbers.

Mr. Fachinetti alleges that McGregor then proceeded to punch him in the face causing him to suffer a broken nose and split lip.

As a result the Italian called the police to the palatial five-star St. Regis Hotel, and has since recalled his account of the alleged incident.

"I just wanted to make it clear that I am – or actually I was at this point – a great fan of McGregor, so when I was told I could go and see him I thought it would be nice to be there with him and for two-and-a-half hours it seemed like I was in a movie," he said on his YouTube channel.

"Being able to talk to McGregor… My Brazilian wife spoke to him, they spoke about Brazil, we spoke about Jose Aldo and he told us he had to fight in Brazil but then he lost against Khabib [Nurmagomedov] and no longer went there.

"He told us many cool things, it was nice, we spoke about Rome, the Colosseum… I told him he should go to Paestum, Pompeii, then he told me he would go and get his Lamborghini boat. It was a nice chat.

"After that… obviously my words are one version, then we also have to listen to his version if he wants, but I had about 10 witnesses with me, of which four were Italian."

McGregor's latest alleged incident joins a series of heated encounters including with musician Machine Gun Kelly at the VMAs.

And Mr. Fachinetti went on to explain further his version of the alleged incident: "Suddenly, in front of the 10 people who were there with me, in front of his bodyguards who in the meantime had also become my friends (we had also exchanged phone numbers, with his bodyguards and his Irish friends), his brain went off, he saw black and [the DJ claims] punched me."

The DJ claims: "So he didn’t slap me, he punched me. Luckily he was very close to me, about 20-30cm, with his right hand, so not his nasty left (hand), he hit me exactly here [points to upper lip and his nose] so he didn’t hit my jaw or my cheekbone, but he hit this part… So you can see here, the lip and the nose are a bit swollen.<< END LEG MARK

"I didn’t fall down, I’m not sure thanks to which strange miracle of the world I managed to remain standing."
