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.'”
