Dizzee Rascal: Grime artist sentenced for assaulting former fiancee
Grime artist Dizzee Rascal has been handed a one-year restraining order and a 24-week curfew for assaulting his former fiancee.
The rapper, whose real name is Dylan Kwabena Mills, had denied assault by beating.
But the 37-year-old, of Sevenoaks, Kent, was found guilty of attacking Cassandra Jones in Streatham, south London, in June 2021.
In last month’s trial the judge said he had been “abusive and aggressive”.
During sentencing, Croydon Magistrates’ Court in south London heard the row was about child access and finances.
The couple had two children before they split up in February 2021.
