It looks like DaBaby is facing a new lawsuit. The North Carolina rapper made headlines after a video surfaced online of him slapping a female in the face, during a recent appearance at a nightclub in Tampa, Florida. Allegedly, Tyronesha Laws forced her phone in DaBaby’s face, which lead to an immediate impulse from him to react and hit her across the head.
Laws recently went on record with TMZ stating, “I woke up, my head was hurting really, really bad. The top of my right cheekbone, it was hurting. It was tender, so I did go to the hospital. I was diagnosed with a contusion to my cheekbone.”
Laws goes on to call DaBaby’s apology insincere. She states, “I was embarrassed. I got people calling me, writing me on Instagram through fake pages. People seeing me and my child saying ‘oh, you’re the girl who got slapped.’ It’s embarrassing. My daughter on the phone waking up in the middle of the night, crying, overhearing me on the phone with my lawyer talking about the situation. It’s hateful.”
The incident took place on March 7th and the very next day, DaBaby took to his 10.7 million followerss on Instagram to issue an apology. He states, “I just wish you respected me like I would have respected you.” He goes on to joke about how Laws can get “flewed out,” which probably did not sit well with her case claiming he wasn’t sincere with his apology.
Court documents reveal Laws is currently suing DaBaby for battery, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The complaint reads “injuries about her face and head,” along with “extreme mental and emotional distress” caused by the incident. She also received subsequent “social media threats,” and is now seeking $30,000 in damages. What do you guys think, does he deserve to be sued?!
