N-Dubz rapper Dappy is reportedly in hospital after being kicked in the face by his own horse.

The rapper was riding the animal in the ground of his Hertfordshire home on Wednesday (November 27), when the horse reared up. It then knocked him to the ground and kicked him in the face.

A spokesperson for the rapper told The Mirror: "I can confirm that my client was involved in a horse riding accident at home where he fell from his horse and was subsequently kicked in the face."

He added: "Dappy was rushed to hospital where he received medical treatment and is now recovering."

In January, Dappy was convicted in connection with a brawl at a petrol station in Guildford, Surrey and was given a six-month suspended sentence. He was also ordered to carry out 150 hours community service.

The court heard that Dappy and his friends pulled up in a car at a Shell garage in on February 28, 2012. Dappy got out of the car and approached two girls, trying to purseade them to get in the car, When they refused, he reacted angrily allegedly calling one of them ugly and then spitting at them but missing.

The court then heard that a man called David Jenkins, who had just met the two girls, came to their defence. Jenkins said he had put Dappy in a headlock after the singer and his friends became aggressive towards the two girls. He claims a bigger fight then broke out which resulted in him being punched and losing some teeth.
