Tom Meighan pleads guilty to assaulting former fiancee.

Tom Meighan has pleaded guilty to assaulting his former fiancee Vikki Ager.

The former Kasabian singer appeared at Leicester Magistrates Court to face a charge of assault. It came a day after Meighan announced he had left the band due to “personal issues”.

Tom Meighan stepped down from the band after 23 years. The singer behind hits like Fire, LSF and Empire is leaving “by mutual consent”, the band said in a statement.

“Tom has struggled with personal issues that have affected his behaviour for quite some time,” they said.

The 39-year-old “now wants to concentrate all his energies on getting his life back on track”, the Leicester band added, before concluding: “We will not be commenting further.”

Meighan was a founding member of the Rock Music band in 1997 alongside guitarist Serge Pizzorno, naming themselves after Linda Kasabian, a member of the Charles Manson cult.

They went on to become one of England’s biggest rock bands, with five of their six albums going to number one. They headlined the Glastonbury Festival in 2014 and won best British band at the 2010 Brit Awards.
