Inside Nikki Webster's hidden heartache after the breakdown of her marriage

The singer’s estranged husband has been charged with assaulting her.

Just weeks after Woman's Day revealed Nikki Webster has quietly called time on her seven-year marriage to husband Matthew McMah, the tragic reason behind their split has been revealed in court.
Last week it came to light that 32-year-old Nikki's estranged husband, Qantas flight attendant McMah, 39, has been convicted of common assault domestic violence and fined $800 after an altercation outside Nikki's Leichhardt Sydney dance studio.
While Nikki is yet to speak out about the incident and is thought to be quietly getting on with life, police reports reveal the details, which saw the pair get into a heated argument when McMah pulled up in his car outside the studio on June 8.
Nikki, who shares two children, daughter Skylah, five, and son Malachi, two, with McMah – is said to have leaned into the back of the car when he "began slowly rolling the car forward a short distance and stopped" before demanding she close the door.

McMah then got out of the driver's seat and removed Nikki's hands from within the car, holding her forearms and "causing immediate pain and causing her to fall to the ground" documents reveal, adding that Nikki immediately ran into the studio and called the police.
It comes after McMah had been charged with the same offence of common assault domestic violence and placed on a three-month section 10 bond with no conviction recorded at Burwood Local court five years prior.
The 2014 charge is believed to be related to an incident involving McMah and Nikki's father Mark Webster.

Police reports revealed the former couple have been "estranged" since 2014 but it is understood they officially separated in February 2018.
The couple married after two-and-a-half years of dating, following McMah's proposal during a romantic holiday in Fiji in 2010.
