Rapper Lady Leshurr found not guilty on assault charges
Rapper Lady Leshurr has been found not guilty of attacking her ex-girlfriend’s partner.
The 35-year-old, whose real name is Melesha O’Garro, was accused of assaulting Chante Boyea – who at the time was dating her ex-girlfriend Sidnee Hussein – just after 5am on October 22 2022, allegedly biting her hand so badly that she suffered “nerve damage”.
But a jury at Snaresbrook Crown Court in east London on Wednesday found her not guilty on two counts of occasioning actual bodily harm, a court official said.
Earlier in the trial, the former Dancing On Ice contestant said that Ms Boyea, a security officer, attacked her first and used her Belgian Malinois dog Toby as a “weapon” during the incident in Walthamstow, north-east London – a claim she strongly denied.
O’Garro’s co-defendant, Sherelle Smith, was also found not guilty on one count of the same charge.Published: by Radio NewsHub
