Boxer Kell Brook snorts white powder on video, as his manager claims ‘it was a joke’

Boxer Kell Brook has been seen inhaling a white powder in a recent video. The former world champion is shown using a roll-up to inhale the powder on a glass table at what is thought to be his Sheffield family home in a video released by The Sun.

After emerging from the powder that has been strewn out on the table, he says “nice” to the camera before shadowboxing on video. The incident seems to occur before a framed photograph of the 36-year-old winning his third world belt in 2014.

According to a source who spoke out, Kell Brook ‘had a bit of a gathering’ when his wife Lindsey and the couple’s three kids were reportedly gone. The source stated, “He had a bit of a gathering at his house where people were drinking spirits and smoking. He was snorting white powder.”

Brook’s manager Terry Thompson said on Friday that the video was a prank.

He said, “This is a thing that has sort of got out of hand. They were at his house, they were having a laugh. They were joking about things. He said to them, ‘Film me having a laugh’.”


Rival Amir Khan made the allegation about Brook using coke in the past on Twitter in 2012. After years of conflict between the two, Brook finally defeated Khan. The Sheffield native then quickly announced his retirement.

Having experienced two stabbings and an assault outside a nightclub in Sheffield back in 2007, he has had to deal with a lot of occurrences outside the ring. He was attacked with a machete in Tenerife the same year while on vacation with his pregnant wife, in what he said was an unprovoked assault.

Although Brook has officially put up the gloves, there has been considerable talk of a comeback. He was said to be planning a domestic bout with Chris Eubank Jr. or Liam Smith in September of last year.
