This is the moment a reality star is recorded attacking her former boyfriend from a TV show in the middle of a gym.
The video was shared on social media by actor Jonathan Fierro who was a contestant on the reality show ‘Protagonistas’ broadcast by Colombian TV channel RCN.
The footage shows Fierro in the gym when his ex-girlfriend Laura Ojeda, who he had a relationship with while they both were part of the show in 2017, walks up to him.
She tries to slap Fierro and he can be seen restraining her to defend himself. When she tries to hit him again he walks towards her and they take several steps back.
Another gym-goer walks past as they grapple before a man approaches them.
The woman then hits Fierro and he takes her down to the floor.
Fierro wrote with the video: “The abuse of men also exists, here you have the proof of everything and if you do not believe in my innocence there is no worse blindness than that of those who do not want to see.
“She kept insulting me and she was obviously drunk. I did not want to do this but my honour has been stained and I had to defend myself.”
It is unclear where the gym is located.
Ojeda told Colombian TV programme ‘Lo Se Todo’ (I Know Everything) this month that she had been bashed about by her former partner and she accused him of making his dog attack her.
She said that she had filed a criminal complaint against him for causing her “personal wounds” in a previous attack. She shared pictures in which she is seen with a bruised eye allegedly caused by Fierro in a previous attack.
Reports said that the argument in the gym finished when a member of staff managed to calm the couple down and they both left the establishment.
