Former Channel Seven host Andrew O’Keefe is being treated at Prince of Wales Hospital after being charged with assaulting his partner, a court heard today.

The 49-year-old was charged with common assault after NSW Police were called to a unit at Randwick last month during an incident involving his then-partner Orlee Lavee.

O’Keefe will try to have the matter dealt with under mental health legislation.

His lawyer indicated O’Keefe would enter a guilty plea to the charges if an application under section 32 of the Mental Health Act is unsuccessful.

“I have had an opportunity to review the facts of matter and I will say this, Mr O’Keefe was certainly not the aggressor in this situation and Dr Lavee will have a lot to answer for,” Ms Chua said at the time.
