Kasabian singer Tom Meighan has pleaded guilty to assaulting his former fiancee.

The 39-year-old admitted during a court appearance Monday that he attacked her.

That was just a couple of hours after Meighan announced he was quitting the band to deal with “personal issues”.

Police say his former fiancee hit her head on a hamster cage after being thrown across the room.

Kasabian saw huge success with albums Empire in 2006 and West Ryder Pauper Lunantic Asylum in 2009.
