British rapper Dappy has been sentenced to a suspended jail term for his part in a brawl at a filling station last year (12).

The former N-Dubz star, real name Costadinos Contostavlos, broke down in tears as he was handed the six-month prison term during a hearing on Friday (15Feb13) at Guildford Crown Court in England.

He was also ordered to complete 150 hours of community service and to pay $6,900 (£4,500) compensation and $3,000 ( £2,000) in court costs.

The 25-year-old was convicted of assault and affray last month (Jan13) over the fight at a garage in Surrey, England in February last year (12).
