Professor Green has been caught on video apparently slapping a student who hurled abuse at him as he performed at a university.
The ‘Read all about it’ rapper was on stage at a ball at Durham University when the incident occurred.
He was mid-way through a song but suddenly halted when a reveller allegedly started a foul-mouthed tirade.
Video footage appears to show Prof Green walking over and reaching over to slap the student, and he reportedly said: “This is what happens when you call me a c***.”
Pro Green, 30, then carried on with his set at the Student Union Welcome Ball.
The Daily Mirror quoted a representative for the star as saying: “During Professor Green’s live show at Durham University on Friday night, a student verbally abused Green repeatedly and then went to strike him. Green reacted.

The rapper – real name Stephen Manderson – didn’t seem to have taken the incident to heart when he tweeted after the gig: “Durham you were a beautiful crowd and F***ING LIVELY!”
Meanwhile, the star has since appeared to comment on reports of the incident, tweeting: “Since when is someone who hurls repeated abuse and tries to slap me a fan? As you were…”
