Rapper Wiley is facing legal action after walking off stage at a festival last weekend.
The Roll Deep star was booed during his set at CockRock Festival in North Cumbria and fled the stage after just 15 minutes.
After launching a scathing attack against the crowd on Twitter, branding the people of Cumbria 'inbreds', 'reptillions', 'you county of witches' children', 'invalids', and 'cretins' - he also bragged about earning £1,000 for the short set.
The Heatwave hitmaker wrote: "I just earnt £1000 a min. I'm gonna p*ss this 15k up the wall. Faced up to a few Pagans and got paid. I hate my agent."
CockRock Festival has now confirmed they are seeking legal action over Wiley's actions, as he was contracted to complete a 45-minute set.
Festival organiser Marie Whitehead said in a statement: "We are dealing with 250 contracts for the event, so I'm not sure what the position is but we will be getting legal advice on what happened.
"It is very disappointing, as it would appear he did not fulfil his contract and was supposed to play for 45 minutes."
Wiley is yet to comment on the recent developments.
