Footage of DaBaby slapping a woman as she filmed him approaching the stage at his concert in Tampa this weekend is the latest in a series of alleged violent incidents involving the 28-year-old rapper. TMZ reports that the crowd was so disturbed by the assault that they booed him offstage before he could begin his set.
DaBaby has since issued an apology to the alleged victim, Tyronesha Laws, insisting that he was not aware of her gender because of the light shining in his eyes. "I do sincerely apologize, I do. I'm very sorry that that was a female on the other end of that flashlight, that phone. Keep in mind I couldn't see."
The apology was weakened by a subsequent appeal for a better angle of the assault. "I got $10,000 for whoever got a good angle of shawty hitting me in my eye with her phone. $10,000, get at me," he said in the Story (watch below).
TMZ reports that Laws has since lawyered up. Her attorney Matt Morgan told the outlet, "Morgan & Morgan has been retained to represent the interests of Tyronesha Laws. Ms. Laws has received DaBaby's Instagram message. We look forward to speaking Mr. Kirk."
Last October, TMZ reported that a man was put into a coma after being brutally beaten by DaBaby's security team when he tried to take a photo with the rapper. More recently, DaBaby was arrested in Miami for battery in connection to a robbery investigation.
