Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah was found guilty of assaulting a woman in London’s exclusive Alto nightclub in Soho. Boozy Amelle reportedly leaned over 34-year-old Danielle Dodoo and threatened to ‘bite her nose off’.
Danielle told the city of Westminster Magistrates court
She was slurring… She kind of leaned up towards my face and said something like she was going to bite my nose off. She had her hand around my neck and it must have been there for a few seconds.
The 27-year-old who pleaded not guilty, was given a conditional discharge and was told to pay £250 in compensation. Danielle who said she told the singer to watch where she was going after she had bumped into her in the club’s VIP area told the court that she still had scratch marks on her neck 11 months after the assault occurred.
Amelle publicly apologised to her fans outside of court.
Following my conviction for assault today, I would like to offer my unreserved apologies to the band’s fans, my bandmates, our record label and my family… Although I was subjected to provocation on the evening in question I do not condone violence under any circumstances and would urge anybody who finds themselves in similar circumstances to show restraint and walk away.
So Amelle isn’t so sugary after all! First it was drink driving now it’s assault. Is she becoming the UK’s answer to Lindsay Lohan?
