Dappy has pleaded "guilty" to having "a bladed article in a public place", after arming himself during a row with his partner.
The N Dubz star - real name Costas Contostavlos - gave evidence at Luton Crown Court from Peterborough Prison via video link and admitted to brandishing a butcher's knife, but was cleared of common assault on Imani Campbell, who was also armed with a blade during the fracas.
Dappy, 30, told Luton crown court: "I plead guilty and I'm sorry."
The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star was filmed with the weapon outside of his home in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, in the early hours of the morning on May 10, by neighbours who heard a commotion.
The rapper - who was refused bail - was also accused of using threatening words and behaviour to members of the public but the charge was discontinued by the Crown.
He now faces jail but Judge Richard Foster concluded it was likely he would receive a custodial sentence when on June 26.
His manager Siavash Khatiri, 36, was also arrested and bailed after allegedly taking a picture of the singer previously at court.
Meanwhile, Dappy - who is a cousin of his former N Dubz bandmate and ex X-Factor judge Tulis Contostavlos - has three children with his ex-partner Kaye Vassell and their former landlord claimed last year that he caused £70,000 of damage to a property the family rented, making it "unfit for humans".
The landlord of the £1.7 million rented country home told The Sun newspaper: "[It's] unfit for humans. It's disgusting. The place was beautiful, now it's a bombsite."
However, Dappy insisted at the time that any issues with the house occurred after he left, as he "categorically didn't" damage the house in any way.
