Altercation: Keith Duffy of Boyzone was 'attacked' by a group of men at a nightclub: PA

Keith Duffy was reportedly attacked by a gang of six men during a visit to a Dublin nightclub with his wife.

The Boyzone star, 42, was in the VIP area of Lillie’s Bordello in the early hours of Sunday morning when the men became ‘verbally abusive’ to his wife Lisa.

According to the Irish Mail on Sunday, the men then turned on the pop star when he tried to ‘step in’.

“Six guys surrounded him in the club after Lisa came running looking for him,” said a source.

“She was upset by the behaviour of these guys. He got a few digs - there were a few of them. There was six on one.”

Security at the nightclub then intervened before the Irish state police force arrived on the scene.

Duffy had reportedly already left the nightclub when the Gardai arrived, having decided not to give a statement.

“There was an incident, but it has been blown out of proportion,” Duffy’s spokesperson has since told the paper.

“Keith was back at work the next day. He’s fine. It was just a minor thing. He’s OK.”

Duffy, who has starred in ITV soap Coronation Street, has recently joined forces with former Westlife star Brain McFadden to form new duo Boyzlife.
