Wiley is wanted by Met Police after failing to appear in court six months ago where he was set to face charges of burglary and assault.

The 43-year-old, whose real name is Richard Kylea Cowie Jr, is accused of breaking into a flat and assaulting ex-kickboxer Ali Jacko.

Due in court November 2021, the MBE-awarded musician is now wanted by Met Police after they released a wanted appeal earlier this week on Twitter.
