Musician found GUILTY of nightclub assault

Tulisa’s cousin and band mate, Dappy, has today been found guilty of an assault.

The musician, whose real name is Dino Costas Contostavlos, was fined £800 with additional charges in victim surcharge and costs adding up to over £1,000.

The incident in question occurred on February 27 in a club in Chelmsford.

When his verdict was read out, Dappy held his head in his hands while the prosecutor said: “It is no defence for anybody, celebrity or otherwise, to say ‘I lashed out because he was rude to me.'”
