The attacking midfielder testified to the police on Oct. 11 after he broke the pop singer’s nose at a night club in Istanbul the previous day.

On her social media accounts, Berkay’s wife Özlem Şahin said Turan had harassed her in the night club with sexually suggestive remarks and headbutted her husband during the ensuing fight. Turan was also accused of going to the hospital where Berkay was being treated and firing his gun there.
