As we reported here, DaBaby rocked headlines over the weekend for attacking a female fan he claims hit him with a phone during a recent show in Florida.
Now, although he apologized for the ‘slap heard around the world,’ he’s set to be slapped with a lawsuit as his alleged victim, Tyronesha Laws, has come forward as the previously unidentified woman in the viral video.
As seen in the video above (obtained by our friends at TMZ), the woman tells her side of the story of exactly what happened at the rapper’s March 7th show at Whiskey North in Tampa.
Laws says she was on the receiving end of a vicious attack from the emcee (born Jonathan Kirk) despite the fact it was the woman beside her who initially blinded him with the flash on her phone.
“I’m not sure if she hit him with the phone. I know the flash was on the phone,” said Laws. “And all of a sudden he smacks me and when he smacks me, I fall down onto her and somebody else.”
In a video responding to the hoopla (which can be seen here), Kirk not only apologized for the incident but offered to fly the then-unidentified victim out to offer sympathy in person. However, Tyronesha believes his intent was insincere as he was later seen ridiculing the incident in an Instagram skit with comedian Michael Blackson (click here to watch).
“He still makes a joke about it,” she stated. “I don’t feel like he was sincere with the apology. I was embarrassed, I got people calling me, writing me on Instagram.”
After Laws’ video (seen above) began making its rounds, DaBaby’s attorney – Drew Findling – denied she is the actual victim.
Thanks to review of enhanced video of the incident, Findling says it shows DaBaby “slapping an individual who struck his left eye with what appears to be a phone with the flashlight on — NOT the person standing to the left or the right of the individual shoving the phone in his face.”
If true, this contradicts Tyronesha’s account.
