Rugby wag Olivia 'assaulted 6ft 2in ex-Ulster star hubby Danielli', court told

By Tony Allen

This is the glamorous society blonde accused of assaulting her ex-Ulster rugby star husband and damaging his luxury Jaguar car.

Stunning Olivia Jane Danielli is charged with unlawfully assaulting her 6ft 2in former rugby international hubby Simon Danielli on August 9 last year.

Newtownards Magistrates’ Court heard last Wednesday that the 28-year-old, whose address was given as the upmarket Marino Station Road in Holywood, is also accused of destroying or damaging a top of the range  2012 Jaguar XF car belonging to Mr Danielli on the same date.

The plush automatic Jag retailed at around £38,000.

The case was adjourned until March, and Ms Danielli has yet to enter a plea to either charge.

The Daniellis, who share three children, are regular fixtures on the local social scene.

The couple are pictured here in 2012 when they took part in a local Celebrity Come Dancing event for Children in Need.

Ex-Bath, Borders and Ulster winger Simon Danielli made 32 appearances for Scotland and 78 for Ulster before being forced to retire due to a back injury in 2012 .

Ms Danielli (nee Jennings) is the daughter of developer Shamus Jennings — one of Northern Ireland's richest men. In 2012 he was said to be worth £67 million.

She’s also a former model who has worked for the prestigious Alison Clarke agency.  On Twitter Olivia describes herself as ‘Domestic Goddess, MILF, animal lover. Loves to party!’.

It is not clear if Mr and Mrs Danielli remain a couple.

Companies House records show that in April 2015 businessman and Oxford graduate Mr Danielle resigned a number of directorships with companies linked to members of the Jennings family.
