A tearful Irish OnlyFans model took to social media last night after a furious bust-up involving football star Riyad Mahrez and his fiancee Taylor Ward.
The Algerian and Manchester City footballer, 30, and Ms Ward, 23, were celebrating their engagement on the Greek island of Mykonos when the incident took place overnight on Wednesday.
Ms Ward, who is the daughter of Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn, can be seen in a video shared by the model running towards the group and the camera.
A model – who uses the Instagram handle ‘Jhilleaf’ (pictured right) – has claimed she was involved in a bust-up with Man City star Riyad Mahrez and his new fiancée Taylor Ward – as they celebrated their engagement on the Greek island of Mykonos
Sources told the MailOnline that this was Ms Ward’s bid to get the ‘nuisance’ group to stop filming her and her new fiance, a claim that has been refuted by the model, who goes by the handle ‘Jhilleaf’ on Instagram.
The couple were reportedly with friends in a top-end restaurant when they had an initially pleasant exchange with the Only Fans and Instagram model from Ireland.
The model was with a group of girlfriends, one of whom seems to have tried to take some footage on her phone near to Mahrez and Ward – which prompted someone in the restaurant to try to intervene, souring the exchange.
It is unclear if Mahrez and Ward themselves were directly involved in the initial row, but it appears in the video shared by the OnlyFans model that Ms Ward chased after the person who was recording the footage.
The couple appeared to leave hurriedly soon after the video was captured, leaving ‘Jhilleaf’ furiously ranting on social media about Mahrez, Ward and their entourage, leading to ugly accusations being exchanged between the the model and Ms Ward on social media.
‘I literally don’t fight people,’ Jhilleaf said, speaking to camera in her Instagram video post. ‘But apparently – she wasn’t even drinking as much – and she started on me.

‘Like I don’t – literally don’t start on people. I don’t like my face being punched in. And these men started called us s**gs – all of our friends – and started coming for us.’
Jhilleaf then showed pictures of her eye which she said ‘hurts’ and was ‘completely scratched’, along with a picture of what appeared to be an optician’s office.
It was in her Instagram stories that she also shared the video of Ms Ward appearing to charge at the person filming as the argument ensued in Mykonos, where fellow Manchester-based football star Harry Maguire was arrested last summer.
In the flare up that followed the model claimed that the phone was ‘stolen’ and that she sustained injuries, including a scratched eye.
However, in her own posts to the social media site, Ms Ward rebuked the model’s series of events, showing another short video in which a woman is seen throwing things inside what Jhilleaf later described as a ‘take-away place’.
Ms Ward captioned the video, writing ‘the girl who claims to have done nothing.’
Ms Ward rebuked the model’s claims in her Instagram stories, sharing a video of a woman throwing objects in a take-away place, and writing a message in which she accused someone in the model’s group of starting the fight
She added: ‘I have never in my life assaulted another person and anyone who knows this can vouch for this.’
In another image, Ms Ward shows a different woman holding a phone up, with an arrow pointing to her with the text ‘the girl filming us’.
‘Not going to speak anymore on this pathetic situation and give these girls the five minutes of fame they’re so desperately looking for,’ Ms Ward wrote in her Instagram story on Thursday.
‘This is a complete and utter fabrication. Me and my family were having a lovely night. The girls who supposedly “don’t know us” came into the shop filming us and we’re (sic) asked nicely to stop.
‘The girl approached us and sat in the middle of our group looking for a fight refusing to move whilst her friends stood and filmed. We asked her to leave, she wouldn’t,’ Ms Ward claimed in her post.
In direct response to the first post, Jhilleaf (pictured) wrote: ‘Lol I didn’t walk in recording you though??? and it was a takeaway place not a restaurant I was sitting waiting for me order and they started on us because they didn’t like that I was sitting there??
The model was with a group of girlfriends, one of whom seems to have tried to take some footage on her phone near to Mahrez and Ward – which prompted someone in the restaurant to try to intervene, souring the exchange
‘She carried on to shout and was the one who launched herself at one of my family members punching them in the face 5 times. She then start (sic) throwing plant pots and other items across the shop in rage at which point we left and followed us down the street, screaming and filming.
‘This is when I went back and told her to stop filming where she launched at me again (the video which has been posted) the end.
‘Be careful people, there’s some seriously dangerous fame hungry people out there. We have the whole video evidence and are in talks with the police on where to go from here,’ she added, with a confused and yawning emoji.
In a separate post, Ms Ward continued: ‘I have also not stolen anyone’s phone, I was actually trying to help her find it at the end when she came over and apologised for her friends actions. Wow some people are so desperate.’

Left: Ms Ward also refuted the claim that she stoke a phone. Right: Jhilleaf, directly responding to Ms Ward’s story, claimed she wasn’t recording the group, and that the group were angry at her for ‘sitting there’
‘After them starting on us we started back and when I shouted at her she punched me in the eye hence me throwing the flower pots at her because she literally physically assaulted me.’
In a second post, the model added: ‘Also the reason I hit the man was because they were shouting at me to move, then all the other men started shoving me and my friends and calling us s**gs and other awful names, you claimed not like being videod (sic) either but yet you videoing my reaction after you hit me in the eye??
‘And you snatched my phone too but I got it back also we already went to the police last night,’ she concluded.
Jhilleaf also took to Facebook to share the accusations, claiming the argument started because Ms Ward’s group were annoyed she was in a seat they wanted, adding ‘we went to the police but they did nothing unfortunately’.
