Charlotte Church's father was left with a fractured eye socket after he was beaten up for asking for cocaine at a New Year's Eve (01Jan13) party, a court has heard.

James Church was left battered and bruised after the bathroom bust-up during a bash at Potters Bar Pool Hall in Leckwith in Cardiff, Wales.

Robert Moore had been charged with causing grievous bodily harm but he was let off the hook on Friday (02Aug13) after a jury agreed he acted in self-defence.

Moore alleged he had seen James snorting cocaine earlier in the evening before bumping into him in the men's room, where the fight kicked off and the singer's dad was hit over the head with a bottle.

The star's mum Maria took the stand to testify, telling the court, "I had never seen such a smashed-up face. He was an absolute, complete and utter mess and badly injured. When I saw his face I absolutely screamed - I went hysterical. I've never experienced anything like that before."

Moore insisted James' head injury could have been caused by a toilet door, protesting, "He came in confrontationally asking for cocaine and I said we didn't do cocaine. He came towards me to 'do' (hurt) me and I got in first. We both fell over and I fell on top of him and we were both chucking punches."

Charlotte, who was adopted by her stepfather James in 1999, did not attend the trial.
