Dizzee Rascal, 36, is charged with assaulting a woman following ‘domestic argument’ at her south London home
After a ‘domestic argument’ at her house, Dizzee Rascal has been charged with assaulting a woman in South London.
The British rapper, 36 years old, whose real name is Dylan Mills, was arrested by police on June 8 on suspicion of common assault.
He is due to appear in court next month after the woman reportedly suffered an injury that did not require hospital treatment, according to The Sun.
Mills was released on bail but was officially charged today and will appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on September 3.
The Metropolitan Police said: ‘Dylan Mills, 36, of Sevenoaks, Kent, has been charged with assault after an incident at a residential address in Streatham on 8 June.
‘Officers attended and a woman reported minor injuries. She did not require hospital treatment. Mills is due to appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 3 September.’
The rapper, who was awarded an MBE last year for services to music, won the Mercury Award for album of the year in 2003 with his first solo album, Boy in da Corner.
He has had a litany of UK number one hits including Fix Up, Look Sharp and Bonkers.
His private life is little reported on as the musician prefers to keep press coverage to a minimum but it is believed that he has previously dated model Kaya Bousquet, who died in a high-speed car crash in 2008.
Mills has his own record label called Dirtee Stank and was able to win over new fans in March this year when he appeared on the Great British Bake-Off.
