A discredited housewife whose claims of assault against her neurosurgeon husband were dismissed by a magistrate made similar accusations of abuse when she was married to champion jockey Shane Dye. 

Emma Steel had accused Dr Timothy Steel of punching, slapping and kicking her in the couple's sprawling home at Bellevue in Sydney's eastern suburbs. 

A magistrate found on Thursday that 41-year-old Mrs Steel's evidence was inconsistent and dismissed all charges against Dr Steel. 

Mr Steel's solicitor, Paul McGirr, had described Mrs Steel as a witness of 'very little credit' and an 'unhinged person' who made up allegations against her husband.

'I relation to her, she will make up anything to suit herself,' Mr McGirr said. 

More video has emerged of Mrs Steel nagging Dr Steel about money, despite being given $24,000 a month for personal and household expenses and a full-time nanny.

Police were reportedly called to the couple's apartment one morning in June 2004 after a neighbour heard them arguing about money.

Dye was taken to Sha Tin police station to be interviewed and his wife was taken to Prince of Wales Hospital and treated briefly before being discharged.

Police took out a restraining order against Dye on behalf of his wife and their two-year-old son Jack but his wife withdrew her complaint several days later. 

'The restraining order was lifted and Emma went to the police station and has withdrawn all charges against me,' Dye told the South China Morning Post at the time.

'Emma has told me she will be returning to Australia with our son Jack as soon as possible.'

Shane Dye was one of Australia's top jockeys before heading to Hong Kong to ride more winners.

He won 91 Group 1 races and in his heyday was dubbed 'Billy Idol'. He is pictured with basketball star Dennis Rodman at a celebrity poker tournament in Sydney in March 2008

Dye, who had left his wife of 17 years for the young model, denied ever having hit Emma but admitted the pair had argued.

'I don't care what people think but I tell you I have never hit her,' he said.

'She's been walking around all week without a mark on her.'

After the police case was dropped Dye was not prepared to say the marriage was over but he was not sure if the couple would reconcile.
