He had admitted having scuffles and struggled with Kate but denied that he had attempted to assault her. On one occasion, Emma Greville mentioned a scenario where Giggs had headbutted her sister, injuring her in the process.

The prosecutors said that Giggs had made his private life suffocating and unbearable for those who came close to him, despite the idol status that his fans had accorded him.

After a drawn legal battle, the Jurors in charge of adjudicating the case could not reach a consensus on the appropriate verdict for Giggs. This dragged on for 23 hours of deliberation. The Jurors were finally discharged, and the trial of Giggs ended without a final judgment.
