EXCLUSIVE

Di's bruv battered by pal




By JOHN ASKILL
and JOHN KAY
PRINCESS Di’s brother Earl Spencer was beaten up by his best man — who had accused the toff of trying to bed his wife.
Spencer was PUNCHED in the face and KICKED to the ground by furious ex-jailbird Darius Guppy.
The twice-married aristocrat suffered a broken cheek, black eye, cut nose and concussion before another pal rescued him.
Charles Spencer, 42, put up NO resistance to the amazing onslaught at Guppy’s luxury home in an exclusive suburb of Cape Town, South Africa.
A source said the Earl was “totally shattered” by the ferocity of the attack. The source added: “All hell broke loose. Charles was punched in the face and kicked to the ground.




“It was a tremendous assault — with blow after blow landing.”
The pair were at Eton and Oxford University together. And they were also best man at each other’s weddings.
But Guppy was incensed after his wife claimed the Earl had tried to bed her — while he was serving a five-year sentence over an £1.8million gems fraud.
His former-model wife Patricia had kept the advances secret for 13 years, but blurted out the story this April.




She claimed Spencer tried to seduce her at houses he loaned her on his Althorp estate in Northamptonshire after her husband was sentenced in 1993.
Furious Guppy lured the Earl to his house in the suburb of Constantia — where both men live — and confronted him.
Spencer protested his innocence, but his “pal” then launched his assault, said the source. Ironically it was the husband of Spencer’s former wife Victoria, 41, who saved him from further punishment.
Jonathan Aitken — no relation to the Cabinet minister jailed for perjury — pulled them apart after arriving at the house for a family visit.


With him were Spencer’s horrified children Kitty, 15, twins Katya and Eliza, 14, and Louis, 12.
While still restrained, furious Guppy accused Spencer of being a “traitor and a creep” — as some of the attacker’s children CHEERED from an upstairs window.
Guppy had flown back from a European business trip to arrange the confrontation.
The source said: “When he arrived he called Spencer on his mobile and demanded his version of events.




“Spencer claimed Patricia was lying and demanded a meeting with Darius at a Constantia restaurant.”
But Guppy wanted to avoid a public confrontation and lured him to his home. The bust-up on May 21, a day after the Earl’s 42nd birthday, was hushed up and police were not involved.
When Spencer went to California to promote reproductions of furniture at Althorp his black eye was said to have been a “cricket injury”.
Patricia said Spencer used to visit her at Garden House, where she lived with daughter Isabella, and later at Yew Tree Farm, which is also on the estate.



Princess Diana had asked to live at Garden House after her split from Prince Charles, but the Earl had refused.
Spencer had also stumped up £250,000 of Guppy’s £500,000 bail after the crook was arrested.
The gems criminal saw both acts as the mark of a loyal friendship. But that changed instantly after Patricia’s outburst about Spencer — who was not divorced from Victoria until 1997. He married second wife Caroline in 2001.
The source, who lives in Ireland, said: “Darius decided that his friendship with Spencer was a farce.”
