THE NME Awards descended into chaos as rapper Slowthai made host Katherine Ryan uncomfortable before throwing a bottle towards a member of the public.
The comedian attempted to get away from the Nottingham musician as he proceeded to paw at her while they were both on stage.
Tonight Slowthai took home the Best Collaboration award with Mura-Masa and had racked up eight other nominations at the event sponsored by Copper Dog.
The rapper was seen attempting to lean his head on Katherine’s breasts while he got up close and personal with the comedian.
He said: “You ain’t never had someone play with you liked I’d play with you.”
Katherine responded sarcastically with: “You are like the hottest guy I’ve seen.”
After a brief exchange she added “I am so thirsty for you c*** thank you for the attention” before pulling a disgusted face.
Slowthai then went on to tell her she could earn him, but she fired back: “Or I could just earn loads of money and buy my own house without a man.”
Kathrine also referred to him as “needle d***” during their heated exchange as he attempted to sexualise her.
One guest at the ceremony said: “It was incredibly uncomfortable to watch. At first Katherine didn’t seem to know what to do and then decided her best bet was to mock him.
“It not the kind of behaviour you expect at an industry event – especially not someone behaving that way and invading the stage.”
A short while later, the rapper was back on stage at London’s Brixton Academy accepting his award for Hero of the Year – but ended up throwing a beer bottle towards fan who branded him a “misogynist” for his earlier behaviour.
The Peace Of Mind rapper then jumped off stage in a bid to have an altercation with the member of the public.
He managed to grab the fan before being pulled away by security and host Katherine was seen trying to calm him down saying “babe”.
