Collins admitted to throwing the liquid but said he believed it was a date rape drug.

The guilty verdict comes just less than two weeks after reality star Ferne gave birth to his daughter, Sunday. He revealed he was at the club celebrating his then-girlfriends pregnancy, which she announced to her family just one day before the incident.

It was revealed in court that the new dad sent his sister a text a week before the attack, which read: “Tell mum to mind that little hand wash in my car – acid.”
