Elle Brooke admits nightclub fight with Astrid Wett was 'fake' and the beef was 'orchestrated'

Elle Brooke has admitted her nightclub fight with Astrid Wett was 'fake' and their beef was 'orchestrated'.
Of course, in boxing - and the ever growing world of bizarre non-boxer boxing - building up hype before a fight is of paramount importance.
Sometimes it seems like two fighters genuinely want to kill each other; sometimes it seems like a desperate attempt to drum up publicity. And in the case of Brooke and Wett, it turns out it was all contrived.
Speaking on the LowIQPod, Brooke explained how the 'beef' with Wett came about.
She said: "Funny story, so I obviously got asked to do the boxing match and I was like, 'well, who would be a good matchup?'
"Astrid Wett was like, 'we could make this do well'.
"So like I'd go around her house and like orchestrate this beef, like we had like a little scrap in a nightclub."
The hosts were clearly duped by the fracas and couldn't believe it was staged.
"No, that was definitely fake... We fooled you," Brooke admitted.
"I went around her house afterwards. We were like, 'oh my god, didn't that go well!'"
That said, the planned animosity between the two did eventually become more authentic after Wett crossed a red line.
She continued: "Obviously one thing gets to another and you want to win this argument on live, and then she turned around and she was like, 'your real name is Crystal, you're from Portsmouth rah rah rah'.
"And if you were like in OnlyFans you'd realise how bad that is to do that to someone."
Explaining why she pulled out of the fight last summer, Wett said: "I wanted it to be well respected… change the opinion on girls that are in the same line of work.
"I personally feel that the KingPyn event is not the event for this. Things have changed from what we first thought when we signed six to seven weeks ago."
She also claimed that Brooke's threats to 'kill' her in the ring have left her feeling concerned for her safety during the fight.
Wett asked: "What's to stop her from head butting me or kicking me, or going for the back of the head, for example?"
