Dappy 'Punched Man In Unprovoked Attack'
Pop star and Celebrity Big Brother housemate appears in court...
The 27-year-old singer has appeared at Reading Magistrates Court under his real name of Costadinos Contostavlos to answer charges that he punched 21-year-old Devonn Reid on the nose in the town's Eivissa club on 6 October last year.
The assault is alleged to have followed advice from Mr Reid to the pop star not to talk to his girlfriend and a female friend.
Sky News reports Reid telling the court: "He said something and I said 'What?', and I turned to look at him and that is when he hit me straight on the nose.
"He had just turned and hit me straight with his right hand.
"After that we just gone. Bouncers came and grabbed him, I have gone to the toilet to clean myself up. He had popped my nose."
Update: Dappy has been found guilty of assault at Reading Magistrates' Court.
