Yikes! This is the second physical altercation linked to DaBaby in the last month.
A man is claiming that he was badly beaten by members of the “Suge” rapper’s entourage and is now reportedly suing. TMZ reported that a rapper named Donald Saladin, known professionally by Don Trag, was allegedly attacked by Baby’s crew last month.
The publication says that it all started after Saladin opened up for DaBaby at one of his shows in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Saladin claims that when he approached DaBaby for a picture, he was rejected. Even though his attempts were shot down, he says he was persistent about the photo, and that’s when the rapper’s security assaulted him.
The altercation was caught on video by witnesses but the footage doesn’t show what took place before blows were thrown. The court documents were obtained by TMA and they state that as a result of the beatdown, Saladin suffered several injuries to his head, eyes, neck, and spine. The injuries were apparently so severe that they led to brain and neck swelling which eventually caused him to fall into a coma.
Saladin’s lawsuit states that the incident would have never happened in the first place if Baby had better security, who were properly trained. In addition to the security, the suit also names the North Carolina in the at fault, because he allegedly just stood there watching the attack. Saladin’s injuries have an estimated cost of more than $100,000 in medical and other expenses. He and his team are currently seeking an unspecified amount in damages from DaBaby.
