Wiley On Cockrock Festival: 'obviously I'm Not Giving The Money Back'
Wiley is reportedly refusing to pay back £15,000 to Cumbrian festival Cockrock after walking off stage during his set. The east Londoner left the stage after having bottles and coins thrown at him that could have caused injury…
Wiley took to Twitter before the event to say he didn’t want to attend the festival, but has since defended his later actions. According to the BBC, he said: “The woman who was looking after us said if it gets too much to come off. After 15 minutes I looked at the floor and it was covered in coins, anyone of those coins could have taken my eye out.”
Cockrock is claimed to be a charity festival and they are reportedly taking legal action against the rapper, with solicitors looking at all angles of damage from the shortened set.
Wiley added that: “The escalation on Twitter is uncontrollable.”
