Football pundit Stan Collymore's Twitter account was deactivated after his former girlfriend Ulrika Jonsson described the former England striker a "hypocrite" during a newspaper interview.
The Sun published an interview with Jonsson on its front page, during which she described Collymore as a "hypocrite" after the former England striker called on Twitter to tackle the issue of internet trolls after receiving death threats.
She told The Sun: "No one should give this man a platform to claim he is a victim. With his history of violence it is beyond ironic."
Collymore attacked Jonsson in a Paris bar in 1998 World Cup when they were dating.
He apologised blaming petulance, jealousy and too much drink for his actions.
Before his account was deactivated, Collymore hit out at the newspaper and accused Jonsson of "lying and reinventing history".
