Oh Dear! Masterchef George Calombaris' Year Just Got Worse
Masterchef judge George Calombaris has pleaded guilty to common assault following an altercation at the A-League grand final earlier this year.
An investigation was launched by police to investigate the alleged assault, which took place just as the game came to an end a man shouted to Calombaris: 'Pay your staff, you dodgy b*****d,' moments after Victory lost the match 4-2 on penalties.
Calombaris said in a statement
'I am really disappointed with what occurred last night,' he said.
'I regret the way in which I reacted, I am disappointed that I let it get to me, and I sincerely apologise for offending anyone.
'While I am not proud of my reaction to the situation, I was offended by a spectator yelling out abusive and derogatory comments about my family.'
He will be sentenced later this month.
