Dizzee Rascal charged for assaulting woman after domestic disturbance

Dizzee Rascal has been charged with assaulting a woman, the Metropolitan Police have confirmed.

The rapper, 36, is due to appear in court next month over the alleged incident at the woman’s flat in Streatham in south London.

Police were called to the address on 8 June and arrested the artist, real name Dylan Mills, at the scene on suspicion of common assault.

The Metropolitan Police told The Independent: “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 Independent has contacted Mills’s representatives for comment.

Last month, Mills marked the 18th anniversary of his debut album, Boy In Da Corner, which included hits such as “I Luv U” and “Fix Up, Look Sharp”.

He is due to play a run of shows this August in London and Swindon.
