Dizzee Rascal has denied headbutting his ex-girlfriend after he was charged with assault last month.
Dizzee was arrested on June 8 on suspicion of common assault and was later released on bail. He was then charged last month.
The rapper pleaded not guilty to “pushing his head into the complainant’s head and pushing her to the floor” at the South London address. He is still out on bail and has not released a public statement on the alleged assault.
Dizzee is known for being a pioneer of grime music and his 2003 debut album, Boy in da Corner, did well in the UK charts.
He performed at the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic Games and even has his own record imprint, Dirtee Stank. The rapper was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honors in 2020 for services to music.
GOLD CHAINS IMPLANTED IN RAPPER’S HEAD
“I put grime on the main stage,” he told Complex. “I put all this sh*t, all the hip-hop, on the main stage at all these festivals when they didn’t have the confidence in it. I made them confident.”
