Dizzee Rascal ‘put his forehead’ against ex’s and ‘pushed her to the floor’

Dizzee Rascal allegedly "put his forehead" against his ex-girlfriend's and "pushed her around" the room then down to the ground while holding their baby son, a court has heard today (February 18).

The rapper's trial started today and the star – real name Dylan Kwabena Mills – has denied attacking his ex Cassandra Jones.

The 37-year-old pleaded not guilty to assaulting Cassandra at a residential property in Streatham, south London, on June 8 last year, at Croydon Magistrates' Court in September.

Helena Duong, prosecuting, claimed Cassandra and Dizzee were arguing over custody arrangements and their disagreement was heard by neighbours.

The rapper had dropped off their daughter in the early evening after spending the day with her. Ms Jones met her ex at the door but said he couldn't come in, as her mum, who she lived with, didn't want to see him.

"He said f**k that and just barged us and went down the hall way," Ms Jones alleged.

Cassandra allegedly pleaded with Dizzee to leave the house and give back their baby son, who he was holding, she reportedly told court through tears.

She reportedly said: "I was scared for my babies."

Cassandra claimed that the star banged his head against the fridge while holding their son "around three times".

The former couple were together for nine years before they split up in February 2021, and have two children together.

The Metropolitan Police previously said that Cassandra reported minor injuries following the alleged incident.

She did not need hospital treatment.

Dizzee was charged with assault by beating on August 2.

Cassandra and her mother Dawn Kirk are set to be witnesses for the prosecution, and the music artist is set to speak at the trial.

Dizzee was awarded an MBE in The Queen's Birthday Honours back in 2020 for services to music.

His debut album was released to critical acclaim in August 2003, with hit Fix Up, Look Sharp becoming his first UK Top 20 single and one of his best known singles.

He went on to win an NME Award for Innovation in 2004, during which time his second album, Showtime, was released and he went on to be a part of Band Aid 20 single Do They Know It's Christmas?

Dizzee's third album, Maths + English, was nominated for the 2007 Mercury Prize, but he lost out to the Klaxons' Myths of the Near Future.

In October 2020, Dizzee released his seventh album, E3 AF, which peaked at number 13 on the UK albums chart.
