Rapper Dizzee Rascal has denied assaulting a woman at a home in south London this summer.
The 36-year-old grime artist, real name Dylan Kwabena Mills, pleaded not guilty at Croydon Magistrates’ Court to assault by beating at an address in Streatham on 8 June.
He arrived at the court wearing a black suit.
The Metropolitan Police previously said the alleged victim reported minor injuries following the alleged incident.
Mills is regarded as one of the pioneers of grime music, with his breakthrough debut album Boy In Da Corner released when he was 18.
His chart-topping singles include Bonkers, Holiday and Dance Wiv Me.
Mills was awarded an MBE for services to music in 2020.
