The model said she required 14 stitches for the cuts on her forehead and skull. Mrs Mugabe was reportedly furious at her for partying with her sons Robert Jr and Chatunga Bellermine.

Engels said: "She beat me so badly, with all her power and might, I honestly thought it was the end of me." She added that Mrs Mugabe's bodyguards ignored her appeals for help.
