The charges -which were subsequently dropped- followed an alleged assault against his then-fiancee, ballet teacher Chelsea Franklin.

Police alleged Mr Phelan had assaulted Ms Franklin at their Frenchs Forest house, on Sydney’s northern beaches, on June 20.

Ms Franklin said she was ‘shocked and scared’ after the alleged incident but never wanted police to lay charges.

‘The police said it was assault and then it snowballed from there… I said look, I didn’t want charges and they were like well, we are doing this for your protection,’ she told the Daily Telegraph in November.

Phelan presented himself at Manly police station where officers charged him with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault.

He ’emphatically denied’ the charges and pleaded not guilty.

Police prosecutors later dropped the charges in Manly Local Court in September. 

Following the court case, Phelan described how his ‘world imploded’ when he discovered his ex-fiancee had accused him of domestic violence.

‘That initial moment (of being accused of assault) and what followed, it’s been a daily battle with mental health and finding the strength to deal with these things because so much is just out of your control,’ he told 2GB previously.

‘Obviously when I learnt what had been alleged, I willingly spoke to police to give them the version of events.

‘I probably did so thinking that it would be cleared up then and there, but it didn’t transpire that way.’

He said that while he always knew he was going to be ‘on the right side of this’, it was still a drawn out and painful process.

Phelan added he felt relief when charges were finally dropped.
