Prime Minister Boris Johnson's dad Stanley broke his mum's nose and "made her feel like she deserved it" in a one-off incident, a bombshell new book alleges.
The claims are made in the new biography of the Prime Minister called The Gambler, written by investigative author Tom Bower, which is being serialised in The Mail on Sunday.
In it, it is alleged that Boris' mum Charlotte and dad Stanley had a troubled relationship which, in one particular incident, resulted in violence.
Desperate for the incident to come to light, Charlotte told the author: "I want the truth to be told."
Family friends are reported as confirming the story, but are also said to have insisted that it was just a one-off.
The friends said it happened in the 1970s when Charlotte was suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and "flailed" at Stanley, who broke her nose when "flailing back".
They added that Stanley deeply regrets his actions and denied that he had been violent on any other occasion.
Charlotte was taken to Maudsley Hospital following the incident, where she claims doctors spoke to Stanley about domestic abuse.

In the book, Charlotte claims: "The doctors at the Maudsley spoke to Stanley about his abuse of me. He had hit me. He broke my nose. He made me feel like I deserved it."
Daily Star Online has contacted Stanley Johnson's representative for comment.
It comes as Boris Johnson’s dad was caught flouting coronavirus rules for the second time in a week.
Stanley was spotted with a mask pulled down from his face as he read a book in a busy airport.
The incident comes just days after Stanley was snapped in his local newsagent without a face covering.

And in exclusive pictures obtained by the Daily Star Sunday, he was also spotted flouting Greek laws on face masks while he waited to board a flight in Athens.
Officials there threatened to take “any and all” necessary action against him for breaking the rules.
It happened last Sunday as he headed back to the UK after a three-week holiday at his Greek villa.
Stanley’s lapse came just days before he was caught shopping without a mask near his London home earlier this week.
Greek law dictates masks must be worn at all times in all public spaces.
Anyone breaking the rule risks a fine of around £135.
A police source said: “It does not matter who you are, celebrity or not. We are all doing our best to stop the virus spreading and we will be very hard on those who do not listen.
“You must wear a mask and if you don’t we will give a big fine. He should be warned. We will not go easy on him.”
