Dappy charged with assault

By | Published on Monday 3 March 2014


One time N-Dubber Dappy was charged with assault last week after an alleged altercation outside the Chicago’s nightclub in Chelmsford. Exotic, no?

Despite tweeting that his appearance at the venue last week was a “great night” and that the “crowd was amazing”, later he was charged with assault by beating. Exactly what occurred isn’t clear, but the rapper has been bailed pending an initial court hearing date. What is it with N-Dubz members and Chelmsford?

Elsewhere in Dappy news, it appears that the N-Dubz man was, in fact, facing a threat of bankruptcy late last year, but said threat was withdrawn after he paid a £140,000 tax bill.

The rapper denied the bankruptcy rumours on Twitter in December, though given he may already have been in the process of paying off his Inland Revenue debts at that point, the denial was technically true.
