Although there isn’t a sexual assault accusation against Conor on the matter just yet, The Notorious One allegedly assaulted the woman physically. But why did Conor feel the need to allegedly attack the woman? TMZ elaborated on the initial report from Majorca Daily Bulletin. Apparently, the female victim was fearful about her life and was ready to even jump off the boat to save herself from Conor.
The woman apparently made a statement upon her return to Ireland. It has resulted in a court case in Ibiza. Although the 34-year-old himself has not commented on it, Karen Kessler has come out with a statement. Karen, who serves as McGregor’s mouthpiece, claimed his innocence. She said, “Mr. McGregor is steadfast in his denial of all the accusations made by a guest on his boat,”
