U.S rapper, Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, better known as DaBaby could end up serving some jail time, as the man, he allegedly assaulted and robbed of his valuables is filing for a lawsuit against him and his crew.
According to the report by TMZ, the victim was identified simply as Kenneth is a concert promoter, already told the news outlet that multiple attorneys have reached out to him to offer their services, as in suing DaBaby.
The report added that Kenneth said he will be going after the rapper (DaBaby) and everyone involved in the brutal incident which he claims left him with cuts and bruises on his face.
The alleged victim, Mr Kenneth narrating how he was jumped by Da Baby and his crew, said he was hired to put on a birthday party for rapper Stunna 4 Vegas at a Florida nightclub Thursday night and made a deal with DaBaby to host. He claims it was for a discounted rate of $30k because the rappers are friends.
Kenneth further explained to TMZ that he showed up with $20k and promised DaBaby the final $10k once the party was over, but the rapper and his crew got pissed, and it quickly turned violent.
The promoter says he had to get checked out by a doctor because his injuries were so bad. He says video of the assault is difficult for him and his loved ones to watch. Kenneth also claims DaBaby’s team made off with the $20k and hasn’t returned it.
DaBaby has already been arrested and detained for battery in connection with the incident. According to the police report, Kenneth was robbed of $80, a credit card, an iPhone 7 and then doused with apple juice. It’s certainly possible authorities will add a robbery charge.
Police say the rapper also has a warrant out of Dallas for organized criminal activity. The warrant stems from a fight DaBaby was in last month at the airport when the rapper and a friend allegedly attacked a food stand employee.
