Former N-Dubz member Fazer has declared bankruptcy, court records reveal.

The rapper – real named Richard Rawson – filed for the status on December 4 using a North London address.

Fazer, pictured left, and fellow bandmates Dappy and Tulisa Contostavlos have been taking a break from the band since releasing their greatest hits album in 2011. Eight of their tracks placed in the UK Singles Chart, including 'Number 1', recorded with Tinchy Stryder, which reached the top spot.

Despite earlier success, all three former N-Dubz members have had a difficult 2013. Tulisa Contostavlos headed to court today (December 19) to deny being concerned with the supply of Class A drugs. She is accused of selling 13.9 grams of cocaine to an undercover reporter as part of a £860 deal.

In November Dappy had to get hospital treatment after falling from a horse and getting kicked in the face. More than 8,000 people have now signed a petition to get the animal given the Brit Award for 'Outstanding Contribution to Music'.

He was also give a six-month suspended sentence over assault and affray charges in February.
