The incident reportedly happened between 1998 and 1999 and was reported to the police in 2017 by a relative of the victim.

Matthews reportedly denied the accusations.

Middleton’s own family were no strangers to legal problems. Her uncle, Gary Goldsmith was arrested in London in 2017 after he allegedly slammed his wife to the ground during a vicious fight.
