Dizzee Rascal 'headbutted girlfriend & pushed her to the floor in attack at home'

DIZZEE Rascal headbutted his partner and pushed her to the ground in a bust-up at her home, a court heard today.

The rapper, 36, was arrested after Cassandra Jones suffered a minor injury at her home in Streatham, South London.

Dizzee- real name Dylan Mills – appeared at Croydon Magistrates' Court today where he pleaded not guilty to a charge of common assault.

The court was told the rapper allegedly attacked partner Cassandra on June 8.

But he “denies pushing his head into (her) head and denies pushing her to the floor”, it was said.

Cassandra reported suffering a minor injury but did not require hospital treatment. 

A provisional trial date was set for February 18 next year with Cassandra and her mother expected to give evidence.

Defence lawyer Iskander Fernandez said Dizzee's tour manager is also due to be a witness as he "received a phone call when the altercation is said to have taken place".

Dizze, who wore a smart grey suit and black tie, was bailed on the condition he does not contact his partner or her mother.

The rapper was awarded an MBE in The Queen’s Birthday Honours last year for services to music.

He became one of Britain's most successful rap artists after the release of his first solo album, Boy in da Corner, when he was just 18.

The Mercury Prize winner released six more hit albums and had a string of number one singles – including Bonkers and Dance Wiv Me.

He won Best British Solo Artist at the Brits and in 2012 he performed during the opening ceremony at the London Olympics.

Dizzee delivered food parcels to under-privileged children in London’s East End where he grew up during lockdown last year.

He recently headlined South Facing Festival in Crystal Palace.
