Professor Green accused of hit and run on OAP's car

Rapper accused of driving off following collision with 67 year-old's Vauxhall Vectra

Professor Green accused of hit and run on OAP's car
Professor Green has been accused of failing to stop his vehicle after backing into a parked car owned an old age pensioner.

The 67 year old man, Albert Stanford, claims his Vauxhall Vectra sustained £800 of damage when the rapper's loaned white Mercedes Benz bumped it earlier this year. The man says Professor Green did not stop, and he was unable to attain Green's insurance details. Speaking to The Sun, Stanford said: “It made a loud smash. But by the time I got my dressing gown on and went down, they had driven off.”

Stanford claims that the chart-topping rapper later called him and that the pair had an argument when Green refused to hand over his insurance details. Mercedes confirmed that the rental car had been returned undamaged. A Met Police spokesman told the paper that: “This is being treated as a fail-to-stop collision.”

Earlier this year Professor Green caused outrage after making insensitive jokes about eating disorders such as Bulimia on Twitter.

In a tweet posted on July 28, the Hackney rapper said: "bulimia is quite an intelligent eating disorder… it'd be easier just to chew food and spit it out but still, you get to eat whatever you want and stay skinny. #winning"

He then added: "queue all the people who start telling me how insensitive i am and how bulimia jokes aren't funny yadda yadda yadda… I'm just trying to find a way to be in New York and not become a fat bastard." He also quoted a line from Nas' 'Queens Get The Money', writing: "'I'm over they heads like a bulimic on a sea-saw'."

The comments made by the hip-hop star – real name Stephen Manderson – resulted in a number of his Twitter followers branding him 'sick' and 'disgusting'.
