Witnesses said neighbours were woken up by a “a screaming match” between Lady Leshurr and two other women.
Cops said a 27-year-old woman was found with injuries but did not need hospital treatment.
Video footage shows the rapper, dressed in a white sports bra and wearing a baseball cap, being put in cuffs and led to a police van by two cops.
A witness said of the commotion: “Lady Leshurr’s friend tried to pull her away to go back into the house after an argument.
“One of the girls she’d been arguing with was in a car, and Lady Leshurr jumped into the car and tried to get her out.”
The woman in the car allegedly asked neighbours to call the police. They said there was another woman in the car.
The Birmingham-born musician, real name Melesha O’Garro, reached the semi-final of ITV show Dancing on Ice in March 2021 alongside skating partner Brendyn Hatfield.
She was eventually knocked out in the show’s penultimate week.
The rapper was also awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM) in 2020 for services to music and charity – and hosts revived TV classic Pimp My Ride for MTV.
Leshurr shot to fame posting a series of YouTube raps, racking up over 125 million views on her Queen’s Speech series of freestyles.
The witness added: “I saw her and I thought ‘is this really the person you hear on the radio?’
“The noise of the scuffle woke me up – you could hear the commotion kicking off. It was very loud.
“I’m happy the police came when they did because it could’ve been worse.”
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Police were called at 05:08hrs on Saturday, 22 October to Knotts Green Mews, E10 following reports of a fight at the location.
“Two women – both aged 27 – were taken to hospital. They have since been discharged.
“A 34-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.
“She remains in custody.’
Lady Leshurr’s reps were approached for comment.
