On Thursday morning, he told The Kyle and Jackie O Show: “Someone’s got a photo saying I’ve got VROs [Violence Restraining Order] against me and [that I’m violent] against women. Someone took a photo off Google [of a heavily bruised woman] and posted that I’ve done it.”

“It’s pretty sad because the girl it actually happened to in 2015 messaged me crying her eyes out because she just got over it. Now this photo’s gone viral about her.”

Kyle Sandilands asked: “That totally not true, is that what you’re saying? It’s just a fabrication?” 

Rhyce replied, “It’s not true at all. Listen I’ve never been in a fight.”
