A CHEF has been jailed for attacking a popstar's �1 million Ferrari Enzo after he had seen him with a girl to whom he had an “emotional attachment”.

Aaron Billington inflicted nearly �10,000 of damage to the vehicle, which belonged to Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay, after seeing the girl go to the star's room at the three-star Brudenell Hotel in Aldeburgh on March 3.

The 21-year-old, who was jailed for 20 weeks at Ipswich Crown Court this morning, claimed at earlier hearing that he was "sparked into a fit of anger" after the singer made "deeply offensive” remarks.

Billington, who lived and worked at the hotel as a pastry chef, had been socialising with Jay Kay and other staff while on a night off.

The court was told today that Billington was “mocked” for his stutter.

He was later seen throwing stones at the car, which had its windscreen shattered and driver-side window smashed.

Jay Kay, whose insurance excess was �10,000, also had to pay �370 to have the vehicle towed away.

Sentencing Billington to 20 weeks in custody, Judge David Goodin said: “This was a spiteful offence. It may have been committed in drink.

“The car was plainly someone's pride and joy - you wouldn't have a car like that otherwise.”

After the hearing, Damien Moore, Billington's solicitor, said his client was relieved that the proceedings were over and wanted to put the “ordeal” behind him."
