Boyzone star Mikey Graham, confronted a man at his home, and allegedly hit him so hard that he was left with swelling in the brain.
The 22-year-old was told by doctors that he was extremely lucky that he hadn’t received worse injuries. The head injury he did receive was described as “very intense” by doctors.
Mr. Graham told some of his close friends that he was going to leave Spain and go home to deal with the fallout from the incident that took place in his home and left a man with a brain injury.
Doctors at Beaumont Hospital treated the victim for six days in intensive care.
The altercation took place at Graham’s €1m mansion ‘Avalon,’ located at Courtlough, Balrothery, and north Co Dublin.
A NY City Brain Injury Lawyer revealed information from a source close to the case. “Before he was released late on Friday afternoon, [the 22-year-old] was told by medical staff at the St Luke’s unit of Beaumount Hospital that he had suffered from a general swelling of the brain. He was told that he was extremely lucky not to have been left needing an operation or intensive physiotherapy.”
The young man was shaken and pale, but he was sitting up and conversing with doctors by the end of the week. His mother and other family members were at his bedside; they will need to keep a close eye on him while he rests and recovers. A New York Brain Injury Lawyer said that there is a great possibility that he will need treatment in the future.
He returned home to north Dublin to finish recovering.
While the 22-year-old was being treated in the hospital, the music star went to his home in Nerja, Spain, a fishing village on the seashore about 50km from Malaga, on the eastern tip of Malaga’s Costa del Sol. He reportedly flew out of Ireland for business purposes immediately following the altercation.
One of the star’s friends said, “He (Graham) says he was absolutely terrified. He was frightened for his own safety and for that of his family. He just wanted to protect his home. He thought they (the men) could have been armed and felt he had to take action to protect his family.”
The Boyzone singer responded to incessant ringing of his front gate buzzer. He left his house by the back door of the property carrying a cricket bat. When he reached the front gate, he crouched behind a wall. When the intercom went off again, the singer swung the bat, injuring the 22-year-old.
It is unclear if this incident is related to an earlier incident that occurred at the Man O’ War tavern. These injuries and other brain injuries are treated at hospitals in the Bronx and Brooklyn.
The singer’s wife and daughter were in the house at the time of the incident.
