The rapper Fler was noticed in the trial against him for violating the code of conduct in court.
The defendant, whose real name is Patrick Losensky, reportedly left the courtroom cursing at the end of a hearing break on Wednesday.
According to the dpa news agency, the trigger was apparently anger at a journalist.
"Either he disappears or I'll go," the 38-year-old had threatened earlier.
Fler stayed away from the further hearing, and his defense lawyer could not bring him back.
The court decided to proceed without the musician.
Losensky is charged with a range of criminal offenses including insulting, damaging property, attempted coercion and driving without a license.
His lawyer had recently announced that his client's statements had to be assessed against the background that Fler was a gangsta rapper.
In the milieu, insults and "rowdy remarks" are common.
The rapper is said to have massively insulted various people - including a neighbor, police officers and a lawyer.
On the Internet, he called rapper Bushido a "bastard" and a "disgusting dog," according to the prosecution.
He also insulted Bushido's wife.
Contrary to the original plan, the rapper Bushido and his wife were not questioned as witnesses on the third day of the trial.
A tweet from the rapper suggests that Fler was not in a particularly good mood that morning.
"You can stay at home and manage the kitchen with Rossberg!" Commented the rapper on a media report about Bushido's absence.
"Rossberg" is probably a police reporter for the "Bild" newspaper, with whom Bushido has become friends.
