Dizzee Rascal charged with assault after domestic argument

Dizzee Rascal, the award-winning rapper and producer whose real name is Dylan Mills, has been charged with assaulting a woman following a domestic argument.

In a statement, the Metropolitan police said: “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, who is currently on bail, is due to appear at Croydon magistrates court on Friday 3 September.

A pioneer of grime music, Mills was just 18 when his debut, Boy in da Corner, was released in 2003.

He teamed up with Calvin Harris and embraced EDM for his fourth album, 2009’s Tongue N’Cheek, scoring a string of No 1 singles including Dance Wiv Me and Bonkers, which helped established him as one of Britain’s most successful acts. He performed at the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Mills, who has his own record label, Dirtee Stank, was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2020 for services to music.
