Rapper regrets behaviour

N-Dubz‘s Dappy has admitted sending death threats to a girl who poked fun at his band.

The rapper, real name Dino Contostavlos, sent aggressive text messages to Chloe Moody after she branded him ‘a little boy with a silly hat’ on Chris Moyles‘ BBC Radio 1 show.

The 22-year-old mum responded to a missed call from an unknown number the next day and was shaken when she received the response.

‘Your gonna die,’ the message read. ‘U sent very bad msg towards Ndubz on Chris Moyels show yesterday and for that reason u will never be left alone!!’

Other texts followed including ones saying, ‘Pick up the phone u f****** chicken.’ And, ‘u dum f*** head. U can call me names over the radio but when I call u direct u chicken out u punk!nana f****** niiiii, Dappy.’

Dappy publicly announced his regret last night.

‘I totally apologise to Chloe,’ he said. ‘I sent the messages to her in the heat of the moment when I was angry but that is no excuse.’

The BBC have also issued a statement ensuring listeners that an incident like this will never happen again.
