Roommates, things continue to get worse for DaBaby after allegedly slapping Tyronesha Laws earlier this month. You’ll recall, he was seen on a widely circulated clip slapping a woman who he claims put her phone in his face to snap a photo. He later apologized for the incident, but that may not be enough, as she is now suing him for thousands.
@Pitchfork reports, Tyronesha Laws is now suing DaBaby for battery, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to newly filed court documents. As we previously reported, Laws and her newly acquired attorney are seeking an official jury trial for the alleged incident—but apparently that’s not enough.
Laws’ lawsuit complaint cites “injuries about her face and head” as well as “extreme mental and emotional distress” caused by the incident and subsequent “social media threats” she has received from others following the incident. She is seeking $30,000 in damages.
Laws’ attorneys, Matt Morgan and Chelsea Cromer, released the following statement regarding their intentions for the case:
“Morgan & Morgan has filed a formal lawsuit against DaBaby relating to the incident in Tampa. The incident was outrageous and shocking. We have requested a jury trial and look forward to presenting all of the surrounding circumstances to a jury of our client’s peers. Our goal is to deter similar conduct in the future and send a message that this type of behavior is not tolerated in America.”
Meanwhile, DaBaby and his camp are continuing to stand by their claims that Tyronesha Laws was not the woman who was hit, instead stating it was another fan in the audience.
Roommates, what are your thoughts on this?
