Carl Woods has tipped a glass of water over Robbie McMahon in a heated argument after the Geordie Shore star “provoked him”.
In a video obtained by OK! Online, Carl – who’s engaged to former glamour model Katie Price – approached Robbie who was sitting at a dining table and tipped a bottle of water over his head.
Robbie then jumped up out of his seat to confront Carl, as you can hear the glass smash to the ground.
A source said of the incident: “The encounter happened during a cast dinner for the upcoming show & fight Celeb MMA.
“During training Robbie has continuously been trying to provoke Carl and cause issues between the pair.”
They went on: “Robbie has had it out for Carl since they began training a few weeks ago.
“Carl decided half way through the dinner that he wanted to leave due to the fact that Robbie had been patronising him the whole night.
“On the way out of the restaurant, Carl decided to throw water over him which then led to an altercation after Robbie couldn’t contain his aggression.”
“This incident has created a lot of tension between the pair and their upcoming fight,” our insider continued.
A representative for Carl has since issued a comment to OK! that read: “Carl is currently training for the Celeb MMA fight and tension between the pair has been building for weeks on the run up to their fight. The incident happened at a competitors dinner after his opponent decided to threaten Carl.
“Carl decided it would be best for him to remove himself from the situation by leaving the restaurant before the situation escalated. Carl has since apologised and is looking to focus on his training ahead of the main fight.”
The pair are set to face each other at Wembley Arena in June.
The ordeal comes after Carl was pictured hand-in-hand with Katie following allegations that the pair had called time on their relationship.
They are thought to have spent the Easter weekend in Alicante together, where they stayed in a four star hotel costing £101 a night.
According to The Sun, 43 year old Katie and Carl, 32, flew to the Spanish city where they stayed at the lavish The Melia hotel.
The husband-and-wife-to-be have been on a string of holidays of late, including to Thailand where Katie was said to be filming content for her OnlyFans page.
Announcing that she’d joined the platform in January, Katie wrote on Instagram: “I am so excited about getting to know my most loyal followers on OnlyFans and am planning on publishing content that won’t be seen ANYWHERE else. I am going to bare my soul and reveal lots of inside secrets – while having lots of fun in the process.”
Not long after, Carl also revealed that he’d joined the platform.
