Former Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan marries partner Vikki Ager a year on from assault
Written by Hitmix News on 15 July 2021
Tom Meighan, the former frontman of indie band Kasabian, has married his partner Vikki Ager – a year on from his domestic assault conviction.
Meighan pleaded guilty last July to attacking Ms Ager a few months prior, and he was sentenced to 200 hours of community service as punishment.
He also left Kasabian to deal with what he called “personal issues” – but the band later said Meighan “misled” fans by choosing not to talk about his assault charges.

Meighan has been engaged to Ms Ager since 2017, and on Tuesday finally tied the knot with her in Leicestershire.
The pair wedded at Market Harborough Registry Office, saying in a statement it was an “intimate affair” and “in accordance with the latest COVID-19 guidelines”.
They added that they were “surrounded by their children, family and a few close friends”.
A statement also said: “Tom has worked so hard on himself, his health, family unit and his relationship with Vikki over the past year. They are very much in love and looking forward to sharing the rest of their lives together.”
After his conviction last year, Meighan apologised to Ms Ager for his actions, saying: “I am very sorry and deeply regret my recent behaviour. In no way am I trying to condone my actions or make excuses.
“I am completely to blame and accept all responsibility.”

Ms Ager told Cornwall Live in 2020 that she forgave her now-husband, saying: “He apologises daily. He really does. A lot of people have arguments and ours got taken to an extreme level.
“I gave as good as I got. We were both fighting. We were really drunk and I don’t normally drink. It was more of a squabble, it wasn’t domestic violence.”
