The rapper (real name Melesha O’Garro) is set to appear in court today
British rapper Lady Leshurr, real name Melesha O’Garro, has been charged with two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, after a fight broke out in the Walthamstow area of east London. Reports say the artist will appear in court today, which saw police called out at around 5am on Saturday morning.
The authorities have said that two women, both aged 27, were taken to hospital following the fight and have since been discharged. O’Garro is 34-years-old, so it does not appear that she was one of the two who were seen by medical staff.
Another person, named Sherelle Smith, 28, was also charged with one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and will appear alongside O’Garro at London’s Thames Magistrates’ Court today (24 October 2022).
The rapper is best known for her series of freestyles entitled Queen’s Speech, for her appearance on The Celebrity Circle (which she won after posing as fellow rapper Big Narstie) and for her turn on Dancing On Ice in 2021, during which she reached the semi-finals. She has also been a guest panelist on the popular daytime talk show, Loose Women.
