A teenage witness in the trial of N-Dubz rapper Dappy has admitted in court sending tweets about selling her story to the press and that she was "in the process of sending the singer down".

A trial at Guildford Crown Court has been told that Dappy, real name Dino Costas Contostavlos, sparked a "mob attack" when he spat at Grace Cochran and Serena Burton, both 19, as they sat at the Shell garage in Woodbridge Road, Guildford, Surrey, at about 3.30am on February 28 last year.

When interviewed by police, Dappy denied spitting at anyone and said he had only spoken to the girls about his new single.

He said: "I walked over to the girls and said my new single Rockstar with Brian May is out on Monday, go and buy it."

He added: "They were just being rude to me, I just said hello, promoting my single, I said 'Hi, my single (with) Brian May is coming out."Two guys coming out, being put in a headlock, bam, that's all I remember."

He continued: "Someone put me on the ground, in a headlock straight away."One of my security tried to get him off me, we all fell on the ground and I get put in a car after that."
