DaBaby is facing legal trouble for allegedly slapping a female fan inside a nightclub.

According to Pitchfork, Tyronesha Laws is suing DaBaby over an alleged assault inside a Florida nightclub. In the suit, Laws says she was not bothering the rapper when “suddenly and without any warning” violently struck her in the face while walking through the club.

Laws says she was standing in the crowd with other concertgoers waiting for the show to start. She claims DaBaby walked into the crowd and walked up to her. She accuses DaBaby of smacking her in the face which caused her “injuries about her face and head” along with “extreme mental and emotional distress.”

Laws is suing for battery, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress and seeking $30,000 in damages.

Tyronesha Laws’ attorneys, Matt Morgan and Chelsea Cromer, released a statement to Pitchfork, “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.

As The Blast previously reported, DaBaby was set to perform at a Tampa club on March 7. A video went viral of the rapper walking through the club with fans lined up on the sides. A woman is seen with her cell phone flash pointing her phone towards DaBaby.

In the video, DaBaby is seen slapping a person in front of him near the person with the flash. He claims he had no idea it was a woman and apologized days after the video surfaced.He spoke out on social media saying, “Keep in mind, I couldn’t see you because you had the flash this close to me … it’s no problem.” Laws didn’t buy the apology and blasted him for being insincere.
