A social media feud between former Hells Angels and Bandidos bikies has escalated, with members of the opposition Rebels MC joining the saga with their own threats.
Ben ‘Notorious’ Geppert, a former Hells Angels enforcer, and ex-Bandidos West End president, Brett ‘Kaos’ Pechey, kicked off the stoush with a vile Instagram encounter on Friday evening.
Geppert, 26, and Pechey’s, 31, falling out followed numerous friendly showings over recent weeks alongside their partners, glamorous Instagram star cousins Allaina and Rikki-Louise Jones.
But in the wake of Daily Mail Australia’s story on Tuesday the online bikie war appears to have erupted again, with high-profile members of the Rebels MC trading barbs on Instagram with Geppert and his girlfriend.
Sydney-based Rebels bikie Daniel Lala led the war on Geppert and Pechey, labelling the pair ‘weak dogs’ – a name Geppert had aimed at Pechey during last week’s rant.
Lala’s accusation the pair had run away from a recent fight came after Geppert and Pechey last week posted photos of their bloodied faces and knuckles to Instagram.
‘How embarrassing, my boys put it on both these weak dogs,’ Lala claimed online.
‘One gets bashed and sent to the boneyard and one jumps in lakes like a fish to get away from getting beat up by c***s from one of the 100 clubs he jumped from.’
His references to ‘jumping clubs’ appears to refer to Pechey’s move from Bandidos to the lesser known Brothers 4 Life, and Geppert’s switch from Hells Angels to Finks.
While Pechey – once the most wanted bikie in Queensland – went quiet online in the wake of Friday’s fight, its been a vastly different approach from Geppert and Allaina.
The pair were quick to hit back as they were bombarded with abuse from a number of Sydney-based Rebels, sharing a number of private messages between the group.
Leading the charge was Allaina – who has a child with ex-Bandidos national sergeant at arms John Fahey – claiming her boyfriend hadn’t backed down from a recent fight.
‘Ben never went for swims dumb f***. He smashed Chris and the huge c*** jumped in the lake… it’s no secret what happened,’ she wrote in defence of her partner.
Geppert then joined the online feud himself, calling out Lala and his associates and offering to meet them face-to-face to settle their disagreement.
‘I’d eat your faces off. You ain’t done f*** all in your lives, that’s why you’re jealous and hating,’ the Hells Angel turned Fink wrote.
Geppert, Allaina Jones, Lala and multiple other Rebels bikies traded countless online barbs across dozens of photos in the space of just a few hours.
It comes as fears grow of an all-out bikie war across Australia following the unrelated shooting death of ex-Comancheros national president Mick Hawi at a Sydney gym this month.
In the two weeks since the father-of-two was gunned down, a tattoo parlour owned by the MC’s president Mick Murray has been targetted in a drive-by and a member of the Queensland branch shot dead after threatening police with a knife.
Geppert and Allaina themselves made headlines recently after being kicked out of a luxury resort by police while on a recent holiday to Hamilton Island.
Just weeks later, in his since deleted post to his online story, Geppert abused Pechey by posting a photo of his Instagram account with the words ‘weak dog’ written on it.
‘Kaos you weak boneyard dog… don’t hide behind me for protection. Ya know where I live so come be a man,’ he also wrote in a subsequent post.
It has been reported that Pechey has been interview by police in recent weeks about his knowledge of the Brothers 4 Life gang.
Just weeks earlier the pair shared pictures together and commented as mates, with Pechey going as far as to write: ‘Nothing but love for u [sic] always brother’.
But more than 8,000 social media users – including their girlfriends, whose father’s are brothers – had a front row seat to the weekend’s falling out.
Both bikies have amassed large Instagram followings in recent years, but their social followings pale in comparison to their partners.
Allaina Jones boasts 158,000 followers and Rikki-Louise Jones more than 30,000, but the pair no longer follow each other.
Pechey fled to Thailand when he became the most wanted man in Queensland after a wild fight in 2013, became known as the ‘Broadbeach bikie brawl’.
That incident saw dozens of bikies surround police officers before attacking, hitting a number with punches.
Pechey, who was among 18 charged over the attack, fled to Asia in the aftermath but was forced to return to face court a year later after running out of money.
He was also charged with being involved in an extortion ring where he use standover tactics to extort money from gym goers on the Gold Coast.
At the time of the extortion racket he was sergeant-at-arms of the Bandidos chapter.
Just last month Pechey pleaded guilty in the Brisbane Magistrates Court to a charge of unlawful possession of a weapon.
