THE wife of former Ulster rugby star Simon Danielli has been accused of attacking the 6ft 2in star and damaging or destroying his luxury Jaguar car, valued at approximately €40,000.
Olivia Danielli, 28, from Holywood, Co Down — the daughter of one of Northern Ireland’s richest men — was charged with assaulting the former Scottish international at a court in Newtownards last week.
The court heard last Wednesday that the 28-year-old, whose address was given as the upmarket Marino Station Road in Holywood, is also accused of destroying or damaging a top of the range 2012 Jaguar XF car belonging to Mr Danielli on the same date.
The case was adjourned until March, and Ms Danielli has yet to enter a plea to either charge.
The Daniellis, who share three children, are regular fixtures on the local social scene in the North.
Ex-Bath, Borders and Ulster winger Simon Danielli made 32 appearances for Scotland and 78 for Ulster before being forced to retire due to a back injury in 2012 .
Ms Danielli is the daughter of developer Shamus Jennings — one of NI’s richest men. In 2012 he was said to be worth £67 million.
She’s also a former model who has worked for the prestigious Alison Clarke agency.
