UK NEWS: GRIME DAILY SHOOTING UPDATE: ACCORDING TO THE SUN NEWSPAPER MODEL / PRESENTER WAS TARGET

Donatella Panayiotou

Yes according to that tabloid rag The Sun model, TV presenter and I quote “TV rap girl” Donatella Panayiotou, 26, was the main target when gunmen walked in to The Grime Daily 1st anniversary party this past weekend and sprayed the place with bullets.

Via The Sun

A MODEL and TV presenter narrowly cheated death when a machine-gun nut shot three revellers at a rap gig she organised.

“It” girl Donatella Panayiotou, 26, was near the DJ booth when the maniac opened fire.

Donatella – thought to be the target – was next to a 23-year-old man who was blasted four times in the chest and buttocks.

A woman, 21, and another man, 24, were also hit. All three victims were last night serious but stable in hospital.

Specialist Radio 1 DJs and UK grime music acts were among 600 clubbers who ran for cover at a warehouse owned by Donatella’s dad in Colindale, North West London, at about 4am on Sunday.

A witness said: “The gunman was aiming for Donatella. I’m amazed she wasn’t killed.

“He just pulled out his gun and started firing at the DJ booth. People were almost trampling on each other to get out. Women were screaming.” Donatella was found hiding in a cupboard.

Donatella, whose dad Angelo is a millionaire club boss, was in ITV documentary Young, Posh And Loaded. She has appeared on MTV, GMTV and in ITV’s Loose Women. 

Pals believe the shooting was revenge for an act of “disrespect”.

Donatella runs an influential online guide to the urban music scene, and friends claim an act she refused to feature was behind the shooting. Continue Reading….

[Thanks FR and Shach]

I’m having a hard time believing that those scum bags were targeting Donatella.  It  sounds like her publicist ( and Donatella) contacted The Sun / The Metro and to gain some publicity cooked up this story around the incident so that the spotlight shines on Donatella.

Forget about the victims just put some shine on the “TV rap girl”.

A witness said: “The gunman was aiming for Donatella. I’m amazed she wasn’t killed.

Oh please!  I smell BS!

I wish the VICTIMS well and both a speedy recovery.

  1. I see what your saying Janice, because thier are no lengths or shame some people wouldn’t go through for a little publicity and 15 minutes, and Donatella strikes me as the person who would really, make the most of her 15mins, sort of like Rebecca Loo’s, without the sex scandal. lol

    but I think she quite possibly could run / own the website, and be spearheading the whole ‘I Grime Daily’ movement,… on an undercover, to me it seems like the sort of hair ball scheme she might come up with.

    Been on the website -checking it from time to time and noticed that they have some featured artists, and I thought how long will it be before some talent less / ‘ard body / MC wants an undeserved featured spot? and goes about getting one via serious threats…

    and it doesn’t cost much to get a hit out on somebody these days, £???+ and thier are cats out there that will do it too, in a club, mac 10, they will spray -no praying, and walk out, bout thier business.

    but these are just my thoughts, …but I am a little torn, what is More possible?

    Somebody looking to dead Donnatella over not being faetured on Grime Daily or… her blantantly seeking publicity and spinning the story?,…now that I think of it hummmm, fishy, well fishy!!!! lol

  2. He must have been the worst shot of all time if she was the target, hit the person she was standing next to four times and completely missed her!!

  3. I remember her from that tv show a few years ago Young Rich and Loaded. Basically her rich dad was paying for her talentless self to be famous – recording demos, hiring top clubs for parties etc. They all flopped but it seems like she has found a route to the top with the grime thing, riding on Black man talent (probably literally).

    Whether she was the target or not, SHE probably believes she was. Just glad no-one was killed.

    And I hate the way the Sun reports incidents like this.

  4. @ One – the shooter probably pressed it once, as he turned away, thinking he can’t miss,… the reported gun that was used was a mac 10… 1’200 bullets per minute, do the math ;) lol, no wait I’ll do it,… 20 bullets per second! thats how the man she was next to got hit 4 times, and she never got hit once (it’s all in the space of a second, less than a second even.)

    Loving Pheva’s comment! especially the bit about riding erm talent loooool,… said what a lot of people’s been thinking.

    When I think about Grime Daily, it seems fairly ‘LOOSE’ no real restrictions, not really thought out, what about the message that goes out?, it’s just a bare ass platform and anything seems to go, as long as it’s ‘grimey – get me fam’… it seems quite reckless and what not, hummm, still got me thinking lol.

  5. We were there and it was some scary s**t. Almost got crushed trying to run out of there. We’re really unsure about this news story though. Would they really try and kill her for not featuring them??? Jheeeeeze!!! But then again, people do get killed for standing on trainers nowadays!!

  6. @fr… You’re right about Grime Daily’s place in all this, and their responsibilities (or lack thereof). I remember a while back they were airing the back and forth “beef” videos between Jammer and Lethal Bizzle (him again!). It all got a bit heated with threats of violence and whatnot. Thing is, when you have impressionable youth and hangers-on who take all this foolishness to heart, it’s time to rethink what it is you’re really promoting.

  7. @ Pheva’s … “Him again” LOOL, that bwoy ya see, him just won’t stop! lol… jokes aside ;)

    that weren’t the only one, i found myself glued to it for a week or so, as there was some running beef between Wiley / Roll Deep / Manga VS Blood Line / Paper Pabs / Big H… I was on grime daily, DAILY!!! lol

    (shame on me i know, I should have known better, I know, I know)

    again threats and big talking, “Watch when I see my man anyway -Shot Gun TING!” …. that became a running joke with me and friends, any chance we could fit it in, we did -as a joke, while converstating… and thats the impression it had on me, but what about a 10 year old, 14, 16, 18 year old even???

  8. Theres a lot of washed, prejudiced, ignorant and borderline racist talk goin on here..
    Remember this is a publication that would do anything to SELL PAPERS from amping up talentless shitstorms such as Jordan et al to diggin up Jades talentless corpse to sell a few measly copies… So I have NO BOUBT this story is barely cooked made up bullshit DESIGNED to drag in the LOWEST common denominator.. Which its done perfectly.

  9. @ THE Blaque Bastard Says:

    Firstly are you really Black? Nah I mean REALLY!?

    none the less, please point out where the borderline racism is, come let us reason.

  10. Fr,

    I am glad this news paper was not written by the lowest common denominator. I wonder what they would be saying now. Unfortunately for us, we are against the lowest common denominator. *sighs*

  11. To be honest, I’ve not really read anything about it. Sorry J, couldn’t be assed to read through the shebang & comments, at least I read your initial comments on it ;D. Sounds like BS, judging only from the picture & the headline. It’s like saying Paris Hilton or/and Kim Kardashian are responsible for all those radio station, concert shootings, $0.50, The Game, Tupac, Biggie…
    **Just had a lovely thought of Paris getting… I didn’t say or think anything!**

  12. The news paper rag would anything to sell its bloody papers, we got that, at whose expense? This article is painting a perfect picture of poor white girl got caught up in gangsters. Yeah ok she got caught up, may be the writer of this article might need to re consider the way they write it like said above. But you know what? It is the norm, so really, what is new? It is not like it is the first time. Your anger Blaque bastard is directed to the wrong people, take it to the sun.

  13. Mr Basterd,

    Don’t know where the “washed, prejudiced, ignorant and borderline racist” talk is. Unless you meant the Sun article? Please explain.

  14. I meant to say, take it to the sun news paper where the sun don’t shine. lol

    *does running man dance and quickly exits*

  15. @ Adaobi … I don’t think, wait, I KNOW… Donnatella is in not like paris hilton, you can’t make that assumption from looking at one picture, come on ….

    Donnatella, is ‘ON DIS TING’ ‘Y GET ME!’ ‘FAM!’ ,… nah all jokes aside, but she is more street, used to follow her on twitter until I got fed up of the foolishness, but jumped back in today to see if see twittered anything about the whole episode.

    “It’s like saying Paris Hilton or/and Kim Kardashian are responsible for all those radio station, concert shootings, $0.50, The Game, Tupac, Biggie…”

    its so not like that, at all ;)

  16. shes an idiot anyway
    who does she think she is silly midgit
    if he daddys that rich surley she would remove her ugly mole |?

  17. DONATELLA DOES NOT OWN THE WEBSITE , SHE ONLY WORKS FOR GRIMDAILY AND OWNS THE WAREHOUSE. SHE IS A PRESENTER AND “MODEL” , THE MODEL PART CRACKS ME UP DOE !! LOL , ANYWAY ME 2 DONT REALLY THINK THAT WHAT HAPPENED , BUT IAM GLAD NOBODY DIED , AND WHOEVER DID THIS WILL GET WHAT THEY DESERVE. SHE HAS A LOT OF CONNECTIONS AND THAT’S PROBABLY WHY SHE WORKS FOR GRIMEDAILY. BUT BORDERLINE IS WHAT HAPPENED , HAPPENED IN HER WAREHOUSE , WHERE THE GRIMEDAILY TEAM WHERE DOING THE PARTY. SHE IS PART OF THE TEAM , BUT SHE OWNS THE PLACE SO THEREFORE THE SECURITY PART WAS HERS TO DEAL WITH. AND ALTHOUGH PEOPLE WANT TO POINT THE FINGER , THE ONLY FINGER I COULD POINT IS AT THE SECURITY PEOPLE , IAM SORRY TO SAY BUT THATS THE WAY IT IS.

  18. DONATELLA DOES NOT OWN GRIME DAILY, SHE DID NOT ORGANIZE THE PARTY AND SHE WAS NOT THE TARGET. THE PARTY WAS ORGANIZED BY FACE4MUSIC , THEIR THE PEOPLE WHO SHOULD BE GETTING THE BLAME AS THEY DID NOT ARRANGE PROPER SECURITY. THE SHHOTERS WERE AFTER AN MC CALLED WOLF. STOP BELIEVING WHAT YOU READ IN THE PAPERS, THEY DON’T KNOW A THING!
    ON A DIFFERENT NOTE DONATELLA IS LOVELY GIRL AND IF YOU DON’T KNOW HER YOU SHOULD KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT SAYING NASTY THINGS, ENVY DOES’NT SUIT ANYBODY!

  19. @Natalie

    “STOP BELIEVING WHAT YOU READ IN THE PAPERS, THEY DON’T KNOW A THING!”

    Nobody believes that Donatella was the target. If you read the post and subsequent comments you would have seen that for yourself.

  20. Hi my names natasha alamin and i am also a model/ presenter who was present at the event….THIS IS COMPLETE BS!!!! nobody was aiming for her, i know the boy who was shot 5 times and it all happened because thye guy was hyped off the fact he had a gun and wanted to cause trouble. He shouldered the boy and he turned around to say ‘whats up?’ the boy with the gun then said ‘keep it moving or ill spray you’ and then shot him….straight after the tills where robbed and alcohol stolen….the reason the others got shot is because he couldnt control the mac 10 with one arm and ended up shooting at the ceiling which then caused the bullets to ricochet and hit others…..I THINK ITS DISGUSTING THAT PEOPLE ARE LYING IN HOSPITAL AND CLOSE TO BEING PARYLISED ANDS TWATS ARE USING IT TO PUSH THEIR CAREERS….WTF GAIN A LIFE AND SOME HEART!!!
