Worried Tulisa flies home from Marbella to comfort footballer beau Danny Simpson after he's 'knocked out in drunken brawl
She was living it up on a sun-soaked mini-break to Marbella with an army of pals.
But while Tulisa Contostavlos was having the time of her life in Spain, her boyfriend Danny Simpson was left bleeding and unconscious in the street after a bloody 4am brawl outside a takeaway in Manchester.
The Newcastle United footballer was said to have been 'knocked out' after a dramatic 'drunken' confrontation in the early hours of Sunday morning, which left him sprawled over the pavement.

A source told The Sun newspaper: 'Tulisa was shocked and upset when she heard what happened. She was worried that Danny might have been badly hurt but she’s been reassured he’ll be fine.'
The X Factor judge was spotted arriving back in the UK on Monday morning after curtailing her break when she heard about the bloody brawl.

Reassurances: Danny told his Twitter followers he was feeling 'OK' following the brawl
Sporting a tan made particularly impressive by the fact that she was only away in sunny Spain for a matter of days, Tulisa wore a fetching cobalt blue velour tracksuit as she prepared to make the journey to her man's side, while covering her eyes with dark shades.
And in spite of Danny's involvement in the dramatic brawl, the footballer reassured his fans he was 'OK' following the 'two on one' incident.

Danny's argument was said to have kicked off outside the Rice Flamebar and Grill in Manchester in the early hours of Sunday morning after the father-of-one enjoyed a night out at the exclusive Circle Club.
But after leaving the night spot on his own to get food, the professional footballer reportedly got into a scrap with a fellow punter while queuing for his kebab.

But while he attempted to leave in the back of a taxi, two bouncers are said to have to have dragged him out and punched him in the face, leaving him unconscious on the floor for 15 minutes before an ambulance arrived on the scene.
The source said: 'He dropped to the floor and was half on the pavement, half on the road with blood pouring from his mouth. He was in a bad way. It looked like he’d been knocked out.'

But it would seem Danny wasn't too affected by the incident, with him writing on his Twitter page the following morning that he was enjoying spending some time with his young daughter.
He tweeted: 'Sunday chill out with my little girl.'
Representatives for both Danny Simpson and Tulisa Contostavlos have been contacted by MailOnline.

But when their romance went public, Danny’s former girlfriend Stephanie Ward – the mother of his one-year-old daughter – gave interviews revealing she was pregnant, while branding Tulisa a home-wrecker.
Tulisa told the Mail of the relationship: 'My world turned upside down. It was instant for both of us.
'I’d finally found happiness and fallen head over heels for someone, and then an ex-girlfriend comes out and says I shouldn’t be happy. I knew Danny hadn’t been in a relationship with her for months. He showed me their text messages.'
