Controversial rapper Dappy has pulled out of performing at V Festival, two days before the event is due to begin. The N-Dubz star gave no explanation, and the news comes after he recently postponed his UK tour which was supposed to begin in September.

However, sources at The Sun newspaper say the cancellation is because Dappy is in a rush to finish his album, which is already three weeks behind schedule. The album is due for release on October 1, with the source adding that:

Dappy’s got his record label bosses pulling their hair out because he’s such a perfectionist.

He is said to have cancelled everything, and locked himself in his studio for the weekend. Dappy isn’t the only artist that has dropped out of V Fest. Frank Ocean dropped out earlier this week and Nicki Minaj may pull out due to her damage vocal chords.

Guess we can sell our tickets on Gumtree then…
