- EXCLUSIVE: Sophie Anderson was allegedly beaten up by her boyfriend
- News of her death broke just weeks after Oliver Spedding was found dead
Porn star Sophie Anderson was allegedly beaten up by her footballer boyfriend just weeks before he and she both died, it emerged today.
News of the erotic actress’s death broke this morning – just two weeks after her partner former aspiring Crystal Palace footballer Oliver Spedding was found dead.
The couple had met on the set of a porn film and went on to work together as adult performers and share a home – but their relationship has been described as volatile.
Now MailOnline has learned that in the months leading up to the double tragedy, Spedding was arrested by police on suspicion of causing 36-year-old Sophie grievous bodily harm.

He was arrested by Thames Valley police under investigation of GBH, false imprisonment and sending ‘indecent, obscene and menacing messages’ on September 11.
He was released on bail with a condition that he was not to contact her indirectly or indirectly, or post any information on social media related to the ongoing case.
He did breach this by posting news of his arrest on Facebook, before deleting the post soon afterwards.
He also made a fake announcement that Sophie had died as a malicious prank – but one that would prove eerily prophetic.
She later appeared to have reconciled with Spedding, posting about this period: ‘I know things have been put online and assumptions have been made but he’s not the bad one.’
She added: ‘His silly joke about me being dead was only because everyone keeps bombarding him with messages like he has hurt me and he never has done.
‘It was a stupid joke and he is sorry.’

Sophie, who had four children, was a prolific adult actress who claimed to have slept with tens of thousands of men, and previously flew to the US to have 32JJ silicone breast implants.

She had spent the last few months of her life repeatedly pleading for financial help from her hundreds of thousands of internet followers as she struggled with poor health brought about by a failed boob job.
In March last year, the actress, originally from Bristol but living in Slough, Berkshire, was left fighting for life with sepsis after one of her left breast implants became infected and later exploded.
This apparently left her in terrible pain and in a recent internet message to her 300,000 followers she said her mental state had been impaired by her health issues.
‘My mental state is f*****d. I don’t know if I’ll ever have my confidence back again.
‘The pictures online is (sic) of me with my boobs from two years ago. Or I just take videos of just my face.
‘I feel lost, sad and I look at models with amazing super duper massive fake tits… and I cry.’
Outside of the adult film industry Anderson supported the LGBT+ community and raised money for HIV charities.

He also had lacerations to his face, and told fans the injuries were caused by an ‘accident’.

One social media user said: ‘Sophie Anderson has passed away, I feel physically sick and shaken.
‘I adored Sophie, she was one of my biggest inspirations, she was truly one in a million. Rest In Power Queen.’
A second added on X: ‘RIP Sophie Anderson. The last few months of her life have clearly been so difficult.’
