UK rapper jailed for harassing ex lover

JAILED: Rapper Skinnyman

A UK rapper has been jailed for 16 months for harassing his ex girlfriend.

Skinnyman, real name Alexander Graham Holland, was found guilty of two counts of common assault, witness intimidation, and breach of a non-molestation order for harassing the 31-year-old after she ended their relationship.

It has been reported that the north London star physically assaulted his victim on more than two occasions and bombarded her with threatening calls and texts on a daily basis.

Last August the rapper followed the victim in her car as she drove home. He then attempted to drive her off the road, but when unsuccessful, attacked her car with a hammer whilst shouting threats at her.

The 36-year-old, who starred in popular Channel 4 series, Dubplate Drama, was arrested and charged with threats to kill, remanded in prison for 16 weeks and told not to contact victim or come into the Borough of Islington for two years.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Jose Lagares of Islington Police said: "Alexander Holland refused to accept responsibility for his actions throughout his trial. The victim, who was already under great strain, then had to testify against him in court.

“His sentence takes into consideration the amount of time he spent on remand and should send a clear message that no one is above the law,” he said.
