British rapper Tinchy Stryder was robbed of £10,000 worth of jewellery yesterday (16.11.09).

The 'Number 1' hitmaker was reportedly confronted by two men in a nightclub car park in Essex, near London, at around 1.45am in the morning.

Members of his entourage reportedly confronted the two men before around 30 police officers arrived on the scene.

A spokesperson for the singer told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Tinchy and his entourage were not involved in any fighting."

Tinchy - real name Kwasi Danquah - is believed to have recovered his jewellery. One man was arrested for a public disorder offence.

The robbery rounds off a bad week for the rapper, as he was forced to pull out of a show at the weekend in Birmingham, England, after nearly 60 people were injured.

More than 20,000 fans had turned up to see Tinchy, dance artists Calvin Harris and Little Boots and boy band JLS at the city's Millennium Point venue on Saturday (14.11.09). The show was a free concert to celebrate the turning on of the city's Christmas lights.
