Photos and Video: Billionaires James Packer and David Gyngel fight over Miranda Kerr


These extraordinary photographs show the moment two of Australia's richest men started brawling in the street after falling out when one of them left his wife and starting dating model Miranda Kerr.
James Packer and David Gyngell, both media moguls, have been friends since childhood, and Mr Gyngell was best man at Mr Packer's wedding to wife Erica.

But last year Mr Packer, 46 - son of pioneering broadcaster Kerry Packer - announced that he had separated from his wife, and allegedly began a relationship with Ms Kerr, Orlando Bloom's ex-wife.

Mr Gyngell, 48, apparently confronted his friend outside his Sydney home, and the pair began rowing about Mr Packer's treatment of his estranged spouse.
The two men, who both own extensive entertainment businesses, had to be separated by bodyguards, and were later fined $500 (£280) each for 'offensive behaviour'.
Mr Gyngell accepted responsibility for the fight and pledged to co-operate with the police investigation into the incident.
'He fully accepts that he was the instigator of the incident,' a spokesman said. 'Clearly, had he not turned up at Packer's premises in an angry mood then the confrontation would never have occurred.'

Ms McKinnon's light-hearted stab at her husband and his best man was well received by her Twitter followers and has so far been retweeted more than 80 times. 
A Channel 9 publicist said: 'Leila is on maternity leave and not doing interviews as such... she really doesn’t have anything to add.'
