And in May 2015, the actor, best known in Australia for his role as Luke Forlano in All Saints, allegedly became enraged when he questioned the woman about another man – and is said to have pinned her down and assaulted her with a sex toy.
Martin denied the assault to police, and insisted that he was trying to restrain the woman after the pair argued.
According to reports, the jury took two days to deliberate, before handing a guilty verdict on one charge of three charges. Martin will be sentenced in October.
