N-Dubz rapper Dappy is facing a jail sentence after being found guilty of assault and affray for starting a fight at a petrol station after he was "disrespected" by two women.
A jury at Guildford Crown Court found the 25-year-old singer spat at a man who stepped in to protect the two 19-year-olds with whom Dappy had started arguing after they rejected his advances.
The trial was told that Dappy became angry, sparking the brawl, after the teenagers "dissed him" and called him boring.
The nine-day trial heard that Dappy, charged under his real name of Costadinos Contostavlos, had been out on February 27 last year celebrating the release of his single Rockstar featuring Queen guitarist Brian May.
After spending the night in the VIP area of the Casino nightclub in Guildford, Surrey, drinking sambucca shots and Jack Daniels, the group headed back in three cars to the recording studios in Godalming where Dappy was working on his debut solo album.
The group stopped at the Shell garage in Woodbridge Road, Guildford, at about 3.30am of February 28, where the violence erupted.
Brian Stork, prosecuting, claimed that Dappy approached the two teenagers, Grace Cochran and Serena Burton, who were sitting on the kerb outside the station shop, and tried to persuade them to get into the car with him to continue the party at the studios.
The court was told that when they refused these advances and began to ridicule him, Dappy became angry and called them sluts.
He told the court: "They had shown me disrespect, a lot."
The court heard a man called David Jenkins, who had been talking to the two women, then stepped in to protect them but was spat at by Dappy.
However, Dappy denied swearing and spitting at them and was found not guilty of two charges of common assault in relation to the spitting.
The case was adjourned for sentencing on February 15 and the pair were released on unconditional bail until then.
Dappy faces a maximum sentence of three years' imprisonment for affray and six months for assault by beating.
Co-defendant Kieran Vassell, 25, of Hammersmith, west London, was also found guilty of affray, while Kalonji Stewart, 32, of Harborne, Birmingham, was found not guilty of the same offence.
