Dappy explains nightclub bust-up
British rapper Dappy has defended himself following allegations he was involved in a bust-up with revellers at a nightclub in Hereford, England on Friday (29Mar13). The former N-Dubz star, real name Costadinos Contostavlos, performed at the city's Play hotspot, and video footage appears to show the musician lashing out at an audience member with his microphone. However, Dappy insists he feared for his safety because a man in the crowd allegedly attempted to throw a glass at him. The star says, "I swung to disarm the glass from his hand. If that glass had hit me it could have been fatal." Dan Guerche, manager of the venue, adds, "A customer lunged through security towards Dappy with a plastic glass in his hand. Dappy, fearing for his safety, pushed the male away to remove the glass from his hand and caught the male on the head." The drama comes just weeks after Dappy was handed a six-month suspended prison sentence for his part in a brawl at a filling station last year (12).
