N-Dubz star Dappy 'sorry for death threat'

N-Dubz star Dappy has apologised after sending threatening messages to a young mother who had texted in to criticise him during a radio show.

Chloe Moody, 22, had sent a text to Chris Moyles's breakfast show on BBC Radio 1 on Tuesday while the chart group were guests in which she called Dappy "vile".

However the rapper - real name Costas Dinos Contostavlos, 22 - apparently took down her number from the studio, without the studio team's knowledge.

He then contacted Moody using a string of expletives, sending messages which said "Your gonna die" and threatening to "never" leave her alone unless she apologised.

His upset was apparent during the show as listeners sent in texts to him and bandmates Tulisa and Fazer on the show. Dappy said of the texts he had seen coming: "I'm not liking some Chris. They wouldn't say that if they was here."

Moyles pointed out there were some nice texts, but the rapper replied: "I'm looking at these other ones, these hateful ones."

Dappy later called Moody - who lives with her three-year-old daughter in Boston, Lincs - but she did not pick up. Instead she texted to ask who was calling.

Dappy replied: "Your gonna die, U sent a very bad msg towards N Dubz on The Chris Moyels show yesterday Morning and for that reason u will never be left alone!!" He said he would stop pestering her if she apologised.

Moody told The Sun: "It's terrifying when anybody sends you a death threat, whether it's real or not. Somebody of a fragile mind and nervous would be worrying what they were going to do."

But Dappy has now apologised and said there was no excuse for what he had done. He said: "I totally apologise to Chloe. I sent the messages to her in the heat of the moment when I was angry, but that is no excuse for my behaviour. I'm genuinely sorry. I'd also like to send my sincerest apologies to Radio 1."
