Girls Aloud offer Harding support after New Year bust-up
Singer Sarah Harding has ordered her Girls Aloud bandmates not to visit her following the violent New Year's Day argument with her boyfriend - because she wants to "hide" after the incident.
The star became embroiled in a heated discussion with her Dutch partner, Theo De Vries, during a ski trip to Austria over the holidays, and she was subsequently admitted to a medical facility.
Harding alleged De Vries attacked her, claiming, "He grabbed me by my hair - throwing my head on the floor. We were struggling. While he had me by the hair, he was pulling me across the floor. He was dragging me around. He was smacking my head on the floor."
She's now returned to her the U.K. and her bandmates have offered her their support - but Harding is not ready for any visitors.
The singer tells The Sun, "The girls have been lovely, they have all texted me. Nicola (Roberts) wanted to come over yesterday but since I've got back all I have wanted to do is hide, stay at home and cook. I know it sounds stupid but I find it therapeutic. The main thing now is to get myself emotionally back on track."
