Sir Rod Stewart, 76 and his son Sean Stewart, 40, have been charged with simple battery after an alleged assault took place on New Years Eve two years ago at the Breakers Palm Beach Hotel. The security guard on duty at the time, Jessie Dixon has claimed the Maggie May singer punched him in the ribs over having access to a private party in a children’s area at the luxury Florida resort.

Sean is claimed to have got “nose to nose” with Mr Dixon, however, the rocker’s son has completely denied these allegations.

During a Zoom hearing on Friday, Guy Frostin, a lawyer for Sir Rod and his son said the issue holding the case up could be resolved as soon as today.

However, he did not reveal what the particular issue was.

Guy said: “Since the last hearing, the state and defence have worked really hard to resolve this. 

“At today’s hearing, it’s unfortunately not going to happen.

“There’s one issue that needs to be buttoned up, I think it’s going to be resolved today, we’re due to get the paperwork done.”

The Maggie May singer and his oldest son Sean were not on the Zoom call. 

The pair were initially charged back in January 2020.

Mr Dixon, who was named in police documents, alleges they were part of a group attempting to get into a private party in a children’s area.

After they were asked to leave, it is alleged Rod and his entourage “began to get loud and cause a scene”.

Sean is then said to have got “about nose to nose” with Mr Dixon.

The security guard claimed that Sean shoved him backwards after he put the back of his right hand on his chest.

He also said that the legendary singer then stepped towards him and punched him in the ribs.

Rod is married to former model Penny Lancaster and the pair have two sons together – Alastair and Aiden.

Sir Rod is dad to eight children in total.

Penny shared a gushing tribute to her loved ones on Instagram, including her husband, after they planned a special day to celebrate her 50th birthday. 

The former model admitted the “outpouring of love” from her family during the midst of lockdown had made well up, as she revealed there had been “tears and laughter” on the occasion.

 

Penny shared a candid photo from the celebrations inside the Essex mansion she resides in with Rod.

The snap showed a table adorned with a beautiful vase of fresh white lilies, green and white candles and framed family photos.

Penny typed: “My lockdown 50th was magical. The outpouring of love and birthday wishes warmed me to my soul. 

“You made my birthday complete, just as you make my life complete. My Zoom party was full of unforgettable memories, tears and laughter. “

A representative of Rod’s has been contacted by Express.co.uk for comment.
