Dizzee Rascal has avoided jail time for abusing his ex-fiancée, Cassandra Jones. However, in June 2021, the rapper was convicted guilty of assaulting Jones in Streatham, South London. On Friday, April 8, he was sentenced to a community order with a 24-week curfew and a 12-month restraining order at Croydon Magistrates’ Court. Dizzee gave the cameras a thumbs-up before entering the courtroom, wearing a red hat, a casual grey jacket, black trousers, and shoes.
Dizzee Rascal’s net worth
He is regarded as a pioneer of grime music, and his work incorporates elements of UK garage, bassline, British hip hop, and R&B. He is also known as Dylan Kwabena Mills. The 37-year-net old’s worth is estimated to be approximately $3.5 million by CelebrityNetWorth. Despite the fact that precise information about his assets is unknown, he has made a lot of money through his career in the music business.
In 2003, Dylan released his first album, Boy in da Corner. He won the Mercury Prize in 2003 and has since been regarded as a grime classic. His subsequent albums – Showtime, Maths + English, and Tongue n’ Cheek – were equally well welcomed by the audience. Tongue n’ Cheek sold over 300,000 copies in the United Kingdom. He’s also had a string of hit tunes, including Dance with Me, Bonkers, Holiday, Dirtee Disco, Shout, and others.
Dirtee Stank, his record label, was also founded by him. Mills founded and owns the label, which is co-run by his manager Cage, label manager Laurence Ezra, tour manager Paddy Stewart, and executive producer Teriy Keys. According to Cage, the label seeks to showcase great musicians who have societal issues that could frighten off other companies. It also assists artists in overcoming obstacles like gaining access to studios that transform a raw demo into something that people would get excited about on the street.

So #DizzieRascal avoids jail for assaulting a woman. He has a bedtime curfew as a punishment. Disgusting. Once again this proves money can buy you anything and protection for the elite exists #ViolenceAgainstWomen pic.twitter.com/ct1LEmtJzh

Dylan is reported to have stormed inside the house, smashed his head three times against the fridge while carrying his kid, and then began yelling and shouting at Jones and her mother, Dawn Kirk. Jones started recording him, but Mills confiscated her and Kirk’s phones.
The commotion got so loud that it aroused two neighbors, who contacted the authorities. When the authorities came, Mills informed them he was the aggressor, but subsequently disputed the claims in a police interview while presenting a prepared statement. Dizzee Rascal proceeded to shatter a photographer’s camera outside the court after knocking it out of their hands and flinging it across the road after being found guilty.
