The assault cases in the entertainment business just keep coming. After Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and most recently, Wiz Khalifa, have all faced assault charges, the unfortunate trend is apparently moving across the pond. Former N-Dubz member Dappy has been fined £800 for slapping a man outside Chicago’s in Clemsford after an event back in February. According to BBC News Dappy, 27, faced trial at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court under his real name Dino Costas Contostavlos. Mr Contostavlos was also told to pay a victim surcharge of £80 and costs of £930. He is only the latest to go down in a disturbing series of high profile cases of violence.

Dappy is in abundant, if not very flattering company these days.

At the beginning of the year, former pop sweetheart Justin Bieber was charged with assault after allegedly getting in a brawl with a Toronto limo driver. The incident took place in December 2013.

Chris Brown’s assault trial was just postponed, Reuters reported this week. The singer was supposed to go in for a hearing on June 25, but the case was delayed once again after his defense said more time was needed to arrange for the testimony of his bodyguard, Reuters reported. Brown stands accused of punching a fan outside a Washington DC hotel back in October 2013. His bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, was convicted on Monday of misdemeanor assault for hitting the man during the altercation.

Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber was accused after a now-infamous altercation last December.

In the most recent case, Wiz Khalifa was accused of assault and battery on Monday. Ryan Smith claims he was attacked at the Tunez and Cue restaurant in West Virginia during a Kalifa concert in April, 2013. He also alledges that the Black & Yellow hitmaker was negligent in protecting him as a business invitee. Khalifa, real name Cameron Tomaz, is one of dozens of other defendants.

Wiz Khalifa
Wiz Khalifa was the latest star to join the lineup this week.
