Christian Horner’s wife in tears amid misconduct investigation

Christian Horner looks set to be sacked from Red Bull amid an investigation into misconduct against a female member of staff.

Geri Halliwell, former Spice Girl, is reportedly going through a tough time, shedding “floods of tears,” as she grapples with allegations of inappropriate conduct against her husband, Christian Horner.

The accusations have surfaced as Horner, who serves as the team principal for Red Bull Racing in Formula 1, faces an internal investigation stemming from a complaint lodged by a Red Bull staff member.

Despite the distressing situation, Horner vehemently denies any wrongdoing.

Red Bull Racing has taken a serious stance on the allegations, enlisting an independent lawyer to oversee the investigation, emphasizing the gravity of the matter.

Horner’s denial of the accusations is unwavering.

Recent reports suggest that Geri Halliwell has confided in friends, assuring them of her unwavering support for her partner, Christian Horner.

Despite her own emotional turmoil, the 51-year-old singer maintains Horner’s innocence.

The staff member who raised the allegations decided to take the complaint directly to Red Bull’s parent company in Austria, bypassing the team’s headquarters in Milton Keynes.

This decision may be attributed to Horner’s prominent role within the company’s F1 setup.

In an official statement released on Monday, Red Bull expressed their commitment to investigating the allegations thoroughly: “After becoming aware of recent allegations, the company initiated an independent investigation.

This investigation, which is already underway, is being carried out by an external specialized lawyer.

The company takes these matters extremely seriously, and the investigation will be complete as soon as practicable.”

Amidst the ongoing investigation, Christian Horner attended an F1 Commission meeting with other senior figures, promptly addressing the allegations, asserting their falseness.

Rumors from Germany suggest that Red Bull has suggested to Horner that he resign from his position, although there is no indication that the longstanding team principal is inclined to do so.

The allegations brought by the staff member reportedly revolve around allegations of “incredibly controlling behavior.”
